5 stars The visitor is a real heavyweight in Neo prog, a concept album that stands up beyond Marillion's best works. This is the final album of Arena's first phase, but some of the elements of the second phase are present: this is a far darker work than the previous two albums. The visitor works very well as a cohesive units, and at its high points, (A crack in the ice, The hanging tree, The visitor) it competes with 70's concepts like the Lamb. As good as it gets for traditional neo-prog, with all the melodic hooks and emotive lyrics that you would expect. A must have for anyone interested in the genre.
