3 stars With this album, NEURONIUM wanted to propose more accessible music with shortened compositions. Contrarily to their other first releases, "The Visitor" features no 20 minutes long suite.

The title song surprisingly starts with a short electric organ introduction, and then deploys a melancholic soft space-rock melody. Not my favorite passage. "A Stange Affair" slowly sets up a trippy and mysterious atmosphere, with vocoded passages. The best composition of the disc. The electro-pop moment then comes with the catchy "Rendez-vous". The longest track, "The Light Of Your Eyes" and concludes the album. It can be divided in two parts. The first half is sung and features soft acoustic guitar. The second half sounds similar to TD's "Encore" release, but unfortunately less insipred and a bit too repetitive. The finale is a reprise from the opening theme.

In between "Digital Dream" and "Chromium Echoes", "The Visitor" is unequal and a bit different from these hypnotic sequenced-oriented releases. Nevertheless, fans of early 80's TANGERINE DREAM should check this album out.

Modrigue | 3/5 |
