Chrome's 1st album (sans Helios Creed) is a very good, but perhaps not great, album of twisted rock with nods to west coast psychedelia, 60s garage, the embryonic punk of the day and pervy strip club grind n' roll. It's more of a sign of things to come as they were still to be joined by the guitarist Helios Creed who served up such crucial ur-metal riffs on Alien Soundtracks and Half Machine Lip Moves. If you like those two albums then its worth hearing The Visitation ... you get to hear the evolution of the Chrome science fiction sound. At the time (mid/late 70s) this album sounded a bit plain and 2D compared with the two masterpieces... but history has treated it kindly and I now view it as a wonderfully wayward sonic parent of two post-punk behemoths.
I don't think this album has ever been issued on CD.... someone should do that without delay.
