Benny and Bjorn’s growing interest in musicals (they had a first meeting with Tim Rice in December 1981 to discuss what became Chess) is apparent on I Let The Music Speak, a song which has a very theatrical structure but manages to avoid bombast thanks to an elegant and subtle arrangement, and a fine Frida vocal. Even if it wasn’t planned as their last album, in the end it was a fitting way to say goodbye. The over all feel of the album is far darker then the previous year’s “Super Trouper” but far more satisfying in the end. The Visitors was the final studio album of the greatest pop group ever ABBA.
More demos would have been welcome but that would have required both a second CD and Bjorn and Benny to rethink their fairly strict policy of not releasing studio outtakes or demos (Twinkling Star.. not withstanding).

Well worth buying if you are an Abba fan [and maybe if you are not], Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 18, 2017, I purchased The Visitors to complement ABBA Gold 40th Anniversary Edition and I feel I have the very best of this iconic group in my collection. 4/5 With Benny and Frida going their separate ways, the pain of splitting up was explored yet again in "When All Is Said and Done". 1/5 The 24-bit remastering is pristine and I would recommend buying this CD to anyone who has an older version.

Like an Angel passing through my room appears in two versions, the original and a nice little demo version as well.
With The Visitors, ABBA took several steps away from the "lighter" pop music they had recorded previously and the album is often regarded as a more complex and mature effort. Long live ABBA!!! The group at this point consisted of two formerly married couples who were now both divorced so the sessions for “The Visitors” could not have been easy. “The Day Before You Came” was released as the first single for the “The Singles – the first ten years”-collection i 1982.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 23, 2012. The Visitors was one of the first records ever to be recorded and mixed digitally, and also one of the earliest in history to be pressed on the CD format in 1982 as, in terms of commercial release dates, it was predated by the Japanese release of Billy Joel's 52nd Street. The major hit single on the album, "One of Us", also depicted the end of a love story. As this was their last album there is - to my mind - an air of sadness to it and a feeling of finality seems to permeate the collection, though that's not to say the songs are depressing - far from it; they are brilliant and a fine way to bring the curtain down on the ABBA story. par matt1212

A few missed opportunties, no doubt, but one of the best aspects to this reissue is the incredible job that has been done with the remastering. The 30th Anniversary edition CD has a really good booklet with nice pictures of the band also lyrics to all the tracks, but it's the sound quality that really counts, and this version makes the songs sound so dated, not what my great original vinyl and previous CD sound like, if this is what they call Remastering progress forget it i'll stick with the old. I never had this in any format, previously, so while most of the music is new to me, the updated sound with little to compare against I have to say sounds very good.
