iTunes Review

Vancouver’s Grimes (a.k.a. Claire Boucher) pushes the margins of this electronic subgenre with a third studio album (and her first for 4AD) that takes plenty of successful risks. Although a timeline of fragments including '70s disco, '80s synth-pop, '90s R&B, and '00s new age electronica can be heard on Visions, Grimes’ own style of murky lo-fi electronics takes center stage. “Infinite Love Without Fulfilment” opens, with her ghostly, childlike voice layered over bassy synths and distorted beats. “Genesis” follows, sounding like it was produced by New Order’s Peter Hook with delightfully dated synths percolating under heavily affected vocals. But as soon as the beats fall like a cold rain, the song takes on an entire new life. She sings with a playfully gothy timbre on the standout song “Oblivion,” an undeniably catchy cut with production that sounds like a darker take on Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade. “Circumambient” experiments with disturbing textures and funky bass lines before Boucher croons in a beautifully distorted soprano.

On the surface it sounds like the Cranes hooked up with Aphex Twin, but there are deeper things going on here. Great sounds and songwriting all around. A sonic landscape of time and mortality and love.

Fair review

Pretty decent album. If you like her style then you'll like this album. However, pick any two random songs and you've heard what the album has to offer. Her baby voice gets a little annoying after the first few songs. Decent album but not a good random purchase.

Visions is Visionary !

you will buy this album now or at some point in the next year…it's an incredible creative piece of art.
when you do click the BUY button remember to tell all your friends WHAT you have done, they need to know of your GREAT taste.
so inventive and refreshing your life is already different with music like this in the world.

With a swooping, baby-voiced singing style, Grimes (the alias of Vancouver native Claire Boucher) crafts a haunting brand of lo-fi dance music that fits stylistically within the goth-electronic umbrella coined "witch house" or "grave wave." In 2010 she put out two cassettes, Geidi Primes and Halfaxa, which were both made available as free downloads. Darkbloom, a split EP with D'Eon, was released...
