Featuring most of Swedish pop icon ABBA's number one international hits, Number Ones is a stellar single-disc collection that well represents what made the group so popular. While there are superb double-disc collections like Definitive Collection and the exhaustive box set Thank You for the Music for fans who want more than a single-disc compilation can offer, Number Ones equals the standard Gold: Greatest Hits in both song choice and listenability. Here you get such classic Europop hits as "Dancing Queen," "Knowing Me, Knowing You," "Waterloo," "Take a Chance on Me," "Mamma Mia," and others. In fact, if you are simply looking for the most recognizable ABBA songs all in one place, you cannot do better than this.
