4 stars This album rarely stays away from my CD player long enough to allow any dust to settle!!

The ingenuity and thought that has gone into this offering shows throughout the whole album. The only query comes from the start and end with the annoying effects growling, this is even more apperent at the end when THE VISITOR the albums title track bursts into a sublime soaring guitar solo only to be cut short by the reintroduction of this special effect!! And then to cap it we have an insistent unwavering note like that of a heart monitor when deceased.

However the rest of the album is absolutely superb, each of the tracks flow to the next with consumate ease, themes are revisted so that whole album has a continuity and as said earlier thought.

Well recomended - in fact from the neoprog aspect essential listening.

If it wasn't for the annoying start and finish this would deservedly been awarded 5 stars and as 4.5 is not available I'll have to settle for the 4 (Shame about that effect...)
