4 stars Let's start from the beginning:

The visitor opens with: "A crack in the ice" which I found repetitive and boring.

Pins and needles starts with an acoustic guitar and an entertaining keyboard, but I don't like the voice here.

Double vision: ˇamazing guitar solo! At this point the keyboard begins to be an essential part of the disc.

Then comes "Elea" a transitional song with a good guitar solo

"The hanging tree" is a solid song and has incredible keyboard soloing.

"The Hanging tree" is followed for very emotional songs that flow very well one to another, (Don't Forget To) Breathe, seems to me the top point of the album. This cycle finishes with "Serenity" and "Tears in the rain" which are just beautiful songs.

"Enemy without" starts the closing being a very different song, here you start to hear again the electronic sound from a crack in the ice.

"Running from Damascus" is a good and very aggressive song.

"The visitor" has the best solo in the entire album it fits perfectly, a great closing for a great record.
