READ my analysis of The Visitors Deluxe edition here - http://www.abbajustlikethat.comyr.com...
Here is the complete The Visitors album, catalogue number Polydor 800 011-2 CD Pressing made in 1982.
Listen to the wonderful dynamic range! In my view this CD pressing is the best ABBA CD available, both musically and sonically.
Of course, even at 720p the sound has been lossy compressed by YouTube, and thus compromised, but it should give you some idea of this wonderfully sounding CD.
The mastering of the Polydor edition is a sonic clone of the Polar CD edition, catalogue number POLCD 342

Maybe one of the best album of the 80's and deserve to be is the top lists. Still sound fresh and new.

Definitely the best ABBA album. I agree, the original CD produced in West Germany is far superior to the later releases. The original vinyl album is of equal superior quality. Luckily I have a copy of both. Abbasolutely brilliant composers / producers.

This is the best you can get on the internet.All of the subsequent releases of this album have been progressively and DELIBERATELY ruined by each take-over company of Polar Music. [Polar has changed hands several times]The trend was to make the recordings progressively "louder", which compromised their sound quality.The only way to hear this album as it was originally intended is to find a copy of the original 1982 Polar or Polydor vinyl record or the original 1982 Polar or Polydor CD (made in West Germany).Catalogue number is listed above.

My god can you help me out with the tracks off of the CD? I'm looking all over the internet for them. I pull up what I can find and see the waveforms maxed out and I can hear clipping on some tracks! Someone was careless.

Every track on this album is great.  I especially love "Soldiers".

For years and years I've been dreaming of the ABBA REUNION SHOW (the ultimate fan dream indeed). And I can't HELP thinking of the Opnening number being This gem. State of the Art production for 5.30 minutes of glorious music. .

It sounds like Moroder songs... :) I fall in love in ABBA a few years ago...

DARKNESS, then a subtle ray of light. First to appear on stage: Benny, playing an extended sci-fi kinda Intro. Then Bjorn playing special effects with the guitar. Then Frida.....and finally Agnetha. By the middle of the song , upper part of the stage is lighted and a full symphonic orchestra plays. A few seconds later the upper back is lighted , a 50 member choir sings. Only one venue would be appropriate for such a Magnum event: The Royal Albert Hall.

If anyone has a copy of the original CD, I'd be interested in the track if it could be ripped. Very hard to find.
