I just love the song Red and Purple, but the rest of "Visiters" falls to monotony.

It took me quite a while before I got into the whole thing. The songs are all alittle similar but I think the best part is the singing. After a few listens the whole way through I was singin along with all of them.

I'm in love with Visiter at the moment. Such a beautifully warm, measured album. One of my favourites in the indie-folk category

Dodos plainly have a lot of good ideas, but the execution is often wanting. While some songs are near perfect, others are so blandly conceived that they bore you to death - in spite of the soundness of the basic idea.

I will say that I expect this band to come up with some stellar releases in the future. Visiter, though, was about half hit, half miss. I tried to view it more positively so many times, but it turns out to be impossible. It stumbles all too frequently.

Ashley and Undeclared are perfect but the whole album is really good.

I started listening to this album again on repeat like I did when I first picked it up. "Paint the Rust" has become my favorite at the moment.

I really liked Visiter, the drumming in particular.

Anyone heard these guys? Their new album "Visiter" just came out and it's absolutely fantastic, I cant get passed the opening track entitled "walking"... its beautiful, just wish it was longer... although it somewhat flows into the next track "red and purple", which is equally as stunning. I actually think I like this album better than their debut.
Man, I am in the same boat. I am in LOVE with these guys. His voice is so beautiful, he reminds me a bit of Sondre Lerche. Why is walking so short? It;s like when Up Against the Wall (PB &J) ends, I want MOOOORE!! THese guys effing rock.

"Visiter" is nice and all but, alot of people seem to have only heard their most recent release. I can pretty much listen to "Beware of the Maniacs" in it's entirety unlike "Visitor" which I pretty much just skip through to the very last tracks.
