    OMG! I agree with you!

    Personally, I think that ABBA's music isn't my cup of tea but IF I want to go back listening to some cheesy stuff of theirs, I prefer spinning "More Gold"!

    I still enjoy "Primadonna" for its ridiculous, but very up-to-date appeal

    The first post was updated with a list of acts for the next possible rankings.
    Leave your applications, if you want to see albums rate from any singer\group a little early.

    • Thrilled that Lover earned an A It feels like a really fitting grade, since I'm definitely enjoying the album too, but I think she has other LPs more deserving of an S. I love that you ranked "ME!" so high, since I've seen it receive way too much hate just for being a bubbly, uplifting pop song. The only track in your Top 5 that hasn't resonated with me is "Miss Americana...", but it might be a grower.

    • Only one single made your Lover Top 5, while your One Of The Boys Top 5 is almost all singles! Poor under-appreciated "Thinking Of You" is the only one not to make the cut That album did have some fantastic, memorable singles (especially "Hot N Cold"), but there's still some gems hidden among the album tracks too (especially "Mannequin"). There was more of a pop/rock edge to a lot of her material this era (kind of like P!nk or Avril), but she pretty much left that sound/style behind starting with Teenage Dream.
