Prog Reviewer
2 stars The Visitor to my music collection...

The third studio release from the band formed by Clive Nolan (Pendragon) and Mick Pointer (ex-Marillion).

The Good: Strong musicianship.

The Bad: Having really enjoyed Contagion I decided to check this out, but after countless failed attempts to appreciate it I've come to the conclusion that its just not that good. In comparison to Contagion which doesn't have a single weak track, some of the compositions found here are so unmemorable that I'd be hard pressed to reccomend any part of The Visitor over its latter day bretheren.

The Verdict: If you didn't like neo-prog before then this isn't going to change your mind.

Starhammer | 2/5 |
