"Brian Wilson Shock Treatment meets The Labor Party meets The Standells? No, even better than that! They're tight musically, good production - hey, it's a hit! Great rock 'n' roll record! Lots of 1960's influences, but the same as The Ramones and Dictators (The Hollies, The Who, The Kinks, The Standells, etc.)."
John Holmstrom, Punk Magazine
"Sometimes it's hard to imagine what rock & roll must be like in New York City with three-quarters of the Ramones passed on and CBGB's just a memory, but the first album from the Visitors suggests some things never change in the City That Never Sleeps -- there are still old-school punk bands belting out two-and-a-half minute tunes about girls, hanging out and various stuff that bugs them over chugging guitar riffs and no-frills melodic hooks, and the Visitors are one such combo... Fold in songs like 'Clean and Civilized,' 'I Don't Belong,' 'Don't Wait for Me' and 'TV Blues' that cover contemporary urban life with street smarts and plenty of piss and vinegar, and you get a half-hour of high quality rock & roll that not only honors its influences but makes some serious noise of its own. And the Visitors even score additional cool points with a righteous cover of Roky Erickson's 'I Walked with a Zombie' - folks, stuff like this is why New York is still the Greatest City In The World. Give it a spin."
