Released: 12th March 2012
Label: 4AD

Visions is the debut album for 4AD (third proper album) by Canadian singer Claire Boucher who records under the name Grimes.

Considering it was recorded in her apartment in just three weeks it’s a largely accomplished piece of work. Sure, it may not be to everyones taste with its 80's electronica influences and her high falsetto vocals that sometimes teeter on ear drum piecing, but its infectious as Hell.

The album is crisp and never over saturated with anything unnecessary giving it a really focused feel which helps the album flow. The nearest musical counterpart is probably Kate Bush, but don't let that comparison fool you, this is a truly unique album.

Nothing I can say can really do this album enough justice so take my advice, give it a listen and be prepared to be captivated.
