Argh .. I can not listen to this compressed mastering quality without any dynamics. I can not enjoy. Not loud and not with headphones. Money & Work for NOTHING.

This massive (in terms of music quantity, not physical size) box set could only ever be considered as the ultimate ABBA fan's collector's item. As such, it's a bit of a letdown. The design of the box is merely okay, and the finish on the individual cardboard sleeves is very rough, although the artwork reproduction is generally very good. The 2 hardcover books of lyrics and timeline are attractive and informative. The dvd component feels like an afterthought, especially the incomplete final tv concert; "The History" documentary was already redundant at the time of the set's release, superseded by the more thorough "The Winner Takes It All" and "Super Troupers". Probably the most enticing aspect of the band's complete videos on 1 dvd is the inclusion of the truly odd "The Last Video". No real attempt was made to create anything new. The best aspect of the set is the truly superlative sound, remastered yet again. If you're a big ABBA fan and find this at a discounted price (it's supposedly a limited edition, but 3 years after release it's still readily available) it's worth your money.
