Muziek Expres, 1981: The Visitors album review

Short review of ABBA’s The Visitors album from Dutch magazine Muziek Expres.
Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus needed a very long time to write the nine songs for the new ABBA-album. But ultimately, ‘The Visitors’ turned out to be yet another creative album on which ABBA is aiming at a slightly older audience more than ever.
The hit single ‘One Of Us’ is some kind of transition from young to old, but the smart thing is that this single is suitable for both groups. Except for the title track ‘The Visitors’ and ‘Head Over Heels’ (what a magnificent pop chorus!), the other songs have a somewhat quieter undertone and fall into the category of ‘after midnight’ music.
