AllMusic Review by

Finding a Chronicles edition that makes a lick of sense is as difficult as finding diamonds in a pile of zirconium. Thankfully, this is not the case here, as we find three of ABBA's most important albums packaged together. ABBA didn't have the success that the other two records (Arrival and The Album) had, but it's still a pleasant listen and a hints at the direction in which the group would soon be traveling. With Arrival, the group is at the top of their game, with their most successful tune, "Dancing Queen," leading the pack, and "Knowing Me, Knowing You" and "Money Money Money" driving the punches home even further. By the time The Album was released, the quartet were international superstars and Europop legends. With bonus tracks and detailed liner notes, this is a nice addition for any fans looking to get the most from ABBA's most important works in one complete package.
