EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded over three weeks in a darkened room, the third album from Canadian singer/producer Grimes, a.k.a. Claire Boucher, packs an idiosyncratic punch. At once grating and soothing, melodic and dissonant, Visions manages to sound like a pop record above all else, with contorted melodies that seep into your brain. Boucher tangles up her eerie falsetto with crackling beats and pinging synths, resulting in a gnarled amalgam of textures—electro-pop rendered as splatter art. It's fascinating and wholly original all the way through.

Close your eyes

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.
