    Despite the fact that the style which Grimes operates on the album "Vision" is not everyone-fall-in-love, I must admit that this is a pretty good record. Songs teeter on the borderline of for ex.dream pop - "Infinite Love Without Fulfillment" or "Nightmusic" - although most of the songs on record are very experimental creations such as "Circumambient", and the best "Symphonia IX."

    Vision is not a bad album, but feels rushed and unfinished compared to her other works.
    However, the ideas are there, and they are good, it just that they aren’t as refined as they should and don’t really make me eager to listen to the full album in one take.
    Being what it is I find this album to be the one which confirms Grimes talent that will be recognized by everyone in Art Angels.

    Thirteen tracks of exceptional music and a clear-cut success for Boucher.

    Visions is beautifully conceived and executed, musically, lyrically and thematically.

    It take a rare confidence and skill to throw a million (roughly) ideas into an album and make it sound not just coherent but as good as this one. [Apr 2012, p.91]
