ABBA: four letters; four unique talents. Collectively, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad are known for creating some of the most vital pop music in the world; individually, however, they were just as creative. Their solo albums may sometimes remain best-kept secrets for ABBA's long-term fans, but, taken together, they see the four individual members explore a range of styles.
Anni-Frid Lyngstad's second post-ABBA release Shine (1984) was produced by Steve Lillywhite and features songs by such writers as Kirsty MacColl, Simon Climie, and Ulvaeus-Andersson as well as the writing debut of Lyngstad herself. The ambitiously modern outing went Top 10 in Sweden, Norway and Belgium and stands as her final English-language album to date.
Pressed on 180g vinyl with original artwork and accompanying download, this reissue is essential for all fans of ABBA's music.
