2 stars Hardly genre's milestone, but surprisingly popular among progheads. I guess it's all because of the concept nature of the album, but making a concept album is sometimes also a way to throw good and average songs together. Clive Nolan is known for releasing a lot of stuff of that kind, and though I like his SHADOWLAND material, I must admit that with years he has become more and more predictable. "The Visitor" was the first work from him which I really didn't like; I still tend to think this is some kind of "our own "Misplaced Childhood"!" from Pointer/Nolan, but it's definitely weaker (due to loads of filler). Not recommended, it can make you think the whole Neo-Prog genre is this way boring and plain
