It's quite criminal that ABBA Gold has sold more copies than the combined sales of every other compact disc ever released*, when you consider the fact that The Definitive Collection is ultimately superior.

...as I'm sure you've discovered after buying your mum ABBA Gold for her birthday in 1995, only for her to comment on how sad she was that Angeleyes wasn't included. Or The Day Before You Came. Her birthday not quite ruined, but it made you feel like shit all the same.

So do her a favour and pick up a copy of this, The Definitive Collection, and send that copy of ABBA Gold down to the charity shop, where it belongs.

Oh who am I kidding, I bought it for myself.

*a lie
