“The Visitors” by ABBA - album review

TJR says

Björn and Benny married non-Abba girls in 1981, and “The Visitors”, released in November, 1981, understandably, reflects, to a certain degree, on the end of beautiful love affairs. It's a superior set to last year's “Super Trouper”, the pop tones being just that little bit moodier and more melancholic. Two singles were released in the UK; “One Of Us” (#3) and “Head Over Heels” (#25). All 7 of their albums went to #1 at home and “The Visitors” gave them their 5th consecutive #1 LP in the UK. From here, they'd continue on into 1982, but the next projected studio album never came to be; although they never formally announced that they'd split, this turned out to be the end of the road for this extra-ordinary group.
