  1. With its lushly forbidding soundscapes and enigmatic lyricism, Visitations bears repeated journeys. [2 Feb 2007, p.123]

    The result is akin to walking in the woods alone at midnight--both spooky and compelling. [Nov 2006, p.104]
  3. A stunning return to form. [14 Oct 2006, p.35]
  4. Fans will likely be delighted by this release, but anyone else who already owns the first couple of Clinic CDs can content themselves with knowing they’ve got the best entries from the band’s discography.
  5. 70
    Visitations sounds more alive than anything since 2000's near-classic debut, Internal Wrangler. [Feb 2007, p.82]
  6. That flair for the undramatic has produced yet another fragile and entrancing record.

    Are you in the mood for a fuzzed out punk folk foot stomper (whatever that is)? Well then this is the album for you. Starting the best opening song of the year,'Family' (nothing else comes close), Visitations moves at a breakneck speed through wah-wah guitar fuelled ballads, blistering non-intelligible punk thrashers and accoustic death marches and then clocks out as soon as it came barely 30 minutes later. There is no other album like it right now and no other album rewards replays more than this. It seems simple, but these 11 (and 1 intermission) songs will keep you hooked and coming back for months. If you give them the chance. Expand

    the best clinic album to date, it seem they have finally developed their own sound and are out of radiohead's shadow. Good if your into expreimental music, this release will satisfy Expand
