It was a close call between The Visitor and Contagion, which are both 5 star albums IMO. I voted for Contagion, but another day I might have voted for The Visitor. Contagion is perhaps more original (not implying that The Visitor is not original!)
 
Immortal? is an excellent album too (4 stars), but I definitely perfer Songs From The Lion's Cage over that one. It is a near masterpiece for me (4,5 stars)! Solomon has become one of my all time favourite songs and Jericho and Crying For Help IV are sublime. The only track I don't like very much on that album is the New Age-like Crying For Help III but overall those instrumental tracks give great variation to the album.
 
Pride and Pepper's Ghost are also very good albums (3,5 stars).
 
Great, great band!

...with such a great discography so far, this gives great expectaions for the band's upcoming album The Tinder Box!

Tough to decide between The Visitor and Contagion. My vote for the former was largely emotional: it was the album through which I discovered Arena, and I have a special attachment to it. As I type this, I've got Immortal? on my headphones. Wink

It really could be any of them. But I'll give my vote to Songs From The Lions Cage, which is a personal favourite. Tracks like Out Of The Wilderness, Jericho or Solomon deserve some more recognition, hence, my vote to this amazing debut.

Always had a soft spot for Immortal? so that gets my vote. Must admit to not having heard their debut though.

The Visitor for me. Perfection, pure and simple.

I only have the first four (seems I stopped one to soon), but of those The Visitor over Pride.

I'll be an outcast and choose Pepper's Ghost. I'm honestly not sure why I enjoy that album more than the others...
