  • From he muted sleeve of Abba's eighth and last album, with its pained front photo of the four bandmembers studiously avoiding one another's gaze in a darkened room, it's clear that 1981's THE VISITORS is a somber record. The disturbingly confessional minor-key masterpieces within, such as "When All Is Said and Done" and "Like An Angel Passing Through My Room," as well as the bizarre, paranoid title track, contribute to the feeling of darkness and alienation. Recorded as the band was imploding amidst romantic breakups, THE VISITORS has the beauty and melancholy of earlier ABBA albums, but only on the transcendently mournful single "One of Us" does the band reach the ecstatic heights of previous singles. Regardless, THE VISITORS stands as one of the band's strongest and most consistent albums.
