Review Summary: had to cut this down, i apologize, somebody tell me how to delete my account lolz

Ultimately, Visits is effective at being affecting, its atmosphere hazy and trippy, its hooks memorable and captivating. Though Tammar is somewhat guilty of riding the same “gradually build to frenzied highs, then fade out to mellowed, hooky lows” trick on most of the album, this does not stop these tracks from just being really damn good. Tammar’s almost improvisational nature allows for them to take what would be fairly standard Joy Division apes and breathe into them a sort of signature sound, highlighted especially by Walter’s haunting moan, carefully adding a certain zest to the layer upon layer of their epic, pounding glory. “We can’t slow down,” Walter howls, I think, on “Deep Witness,” and in that line is all you need to hear before you’re welcomed to this journey, before you’re welcomed to these purple caves.
