It's interesting reading which songs reach different people. We seem to be at the common consensus that some songs are good, and the rest of the album seems to be rather dull. Yet, when you look at all of the individual songs named - we rarely get a repeat. I think an interesting study would be to describe what we like about the songs of which we are name dropping. Anyone?

Personally, I downloaded the album a while ago and never thought it was anything special. I preferred Hercules and the Love Affair over the Dodos in this wave of new artists.

I think Visiter is a fantastic album.. the drumming in particular sets them apart from a typical indie folk outfit.

I completely agree. He uses the guitar as a drum, or for rhythm a lot, and it's really different. He said he tried to figure out this technique after taking an African drum course. I thought Ashley was awesome, the haunting melody with that drum beat and the great sound effects they use. Walking has an awesome melody, and it changes like, halfway through. I love every song on this album!
