3 stars Arena returns with this, their third album.

Arena does symphonic neo prog with quite a distinct 1980s sound on this album. The sound is as big as a cathedral with cascades of guitars and keyboards. The vocals are in the neo prog vein with a distinct new romantics pronounciations of the vocals.

All this relies on the case of good melodies or not. In this case, Arena has dropped their standards somewhat. There is only two great songs on this album and that is the title track and The Hanging Tree. The rest of the songs are really not quite there and no cascades of guitars and keyboards can rectify that. This is still a very good album, but just that. A bit of a let down, The Visitor.

3.5 stars
