    His debut combines melodic dubstep with a dose of Timbaland-style R&B. [Dec. 2001 p. 127]

    The Vision, the latest from bass music sensation Joker, strikes a wondrous balance of doom and poppiness.

    The Vision will reward your temporary suspension of good taste with a solid hour of instantly gratifying party jams.

    The Vision is a true mixed bag that while offering up a few outstanding gems, disappoints more than it probably should and reveals its maker as far less of a visionary as we all assumed him to be.

    It's an unadventurous but pleasant effort from a talented artist who used to make everyone else look boring.

    Unfortunately, subtlety gets lost in the process, and only about half the guest vocalist are actually effective.

    It's the uninspired and homogenous manner in which Joker goes about ironing out nearly everything that made his tunes memorable to begin with that makes The Vision one of the most disappointing debuts of the year.
