  1. A lyrical and musical knockout, spearheaded by the miraculous 'Fools,' Visiter could be one of the best albums of the year. [Spring 2008, p.82]
  2. Sounding somewhat like a lot of groups but not exactly like anyone, this is an album you shouldn't miss.
  3. Pretty awesome, seriously. [Apr 2008, p.153]
  4. And speaking of nervous systems, if Visiter doesn't make you tap, nod, shake, or just plain move, then you don't have one.
  5. Visiter's experimental pop is so joyous and liberated-sounding that it's difficult not to get swept along in its wake.
  6. Though it’s not entirely without precedent, there’s still more than enough innovation here to mark Visiter out as one of the summer’s must-have releases.
  7. One is left feeling that the Dodos are selling themselves short, hanging onto prettyboy singer-songwriterdom when they should be letting their freak flag fly.
