The real pressing matter is John's thoughts on The Day Before You Came
I get why it wasn't addressed on the Visitors review. Also, with Agnetha's performance and the total separation of her and Anna-Frid it feels more like a transitional piece to Benny & Björn's musical phase than an ABBA song proper. But for all its atypicality I think it's one of the great "final songs" in pop music (Voyage notwithstanding), up there with something like "You Know You're Right" in how, even if it wasn't intended as such, it works so devastatingly well as an emotional conclusion to the artist/s' body of work.
