ABBA: Waterloo

Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 28 August 1974

Abba's emergence is one of the most cheering musical events in recent months. Just when the Top 40 was plumbing hitherto-unfathomable, moribund depths, along came their single, 'Waterloo'. A modern-day 'girl group' production with the brightest, most exuberant sound around, it's made button-punching on the car radio a worthwhile pastime again.
