Sep 28, 2018Dancing Queen is not a staid history lesson. Instead, it’s a curious experiment that ultimately reveals the endurance of two musical institutions whose artistry has always been rather inimitable.
Oct 2, 2018The party standards are present and correct. ‘Mamma Mia’ is as dizzying good and gay as you’ll get, the aural equivalent of downing three bottles of pink fizz in an Uber with Magic FM, getting pissed with your pals, on the way to the best night of your life. ‘Waterloo’ crashes in on glam-rock drums, a pantomime dame in silver thigh-highs, as she battles and bosses that irresistible chorus. ‘SOS’? Not even going to talk about it. It’s a double-dunt of serotonin; a sure-fire cure for sadness.
Sep 28, 2018Dancing Queen pulls off a perfect balance of frothy effervescence and resonant emotional depth.
Sep 28, 2018Dancing Queen is often surprisingly ingenious. Occasionally Cher uses her trademark Auto-Tune like a crutch--it’s a cop-out on One of Us--but mostly it acts as a kind of interstellar portal that elevates Abba from the dancefloor to the cosmos.
Oct 2, 2018You can enjoy the album and still wish that producer Taylor had done more to put a new or distinctive signature on this time-honored material. Well, actually, he adds one trademark touch fairly often: The overt AutoTune phasing that made his collaboration with Cher on 1998’s “Believe” so memorable returns here any number of times.
Sep 28, 2018It is a testament to just how utterly robust these songs are that the results are, inescapably, joyous. The recordings have been given a bit of digital oomph, with all the sounds polished and honed, and levels kicked up a notch, so the result is dense and shiny, with a relentlessly modern attack.
Sep 28, 2018Faithful to a fault, the tracklist sticks safely to ABBA’s most well-known hits, among them “SOS,” “Mamma Mia,” and, of course, the title track. There are scant re-imaginings here, and no obscure disco gems.

Jun 17, 2019This is a masterpiece, 1000x better than the original songs a thing only Cher could do with her talent
Oct 7, 2018Best Cher since Believe. Her voice, amazingly, has never been better. And these songs sound like they were written for her. Cher magic.
Sep 29, 2018I was straight before delighting my ears with this. Cher's best work since Believe.

Sep 28, 2018When you thought things couldn’t get any gayer, bam, cher cover abba. Maybe a ultimate gay anthem?
Oct 8, 2018Cher's latest album would be more appropriately tilted Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie! As others have said, it's just a blatant cash grab. Shamefull!!
