If Bjorn and Stig had been a little less flippant about the lyrics, this would have been a much better album. The silliness reduces "Sitting In The Palm Tree," "King King Song" and even "What About Livingstone" to mere novelty records. And "Livingstone" has such a terrific tune! What a waste.
I quite like "Watch Out," even if Bjorn's rockiness is unconvincing. "Suzy Hang Around" is another highlight for me - apart from those horrible lyrics in which Benny forgives himself for being a schoolyard bully. The tune and the arrangement are quite lovely. "Waterloo" and "Honey Honey" are great pop moments and should have been released in that order as singles. Silly Epic Records! "Dance (While The Music Still Goes On)" is another pop peach. My favourite song by quite some distance is the unexpectedly elegant and soulful "Gonna Sing You My Lovesong." It feels a bit like a lost Dusty Springfield classic.
I love the funkiness to 'My Mama Said', it is a great little song. Even though a couple of songs can be considered by some as "silly" there are some really good songs on here like, 'Dance (While the music still goes on)', 'Gonna Sing You My Lovesong', 'Honey, Hone', 'Watch Out'. I agree 'What About Livingstone' is a little wasted because the melody is very good. Overall, there are a few nice songs on this album.
