EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Mar 02, 2010; Lead Performance: Benny Andersson Band; Genre: Pop

Timed to coincide with ABBA's 
induction into 
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 
March 15, Story of a Heart, the first U.S. release by Benny Andersson's 16-member orchestral-pop outfit is long on quirky instrumental material that suggests the score for an animated flick about mischievous trolls. But in vocal cuts like the title song and ''You Are My Man,'' both of which Andersson penned with his old bandmate Björn Ulvaeus, the Swedes succeed in 
summoning some of ABBA's one-of-a-kind joie de vivre. Now gimme gimme gimme a real reunion! B
