a talented songwriter with little-no musical training, she is truly an offspring of the DIY ethos. However, overall the record is patchy, but the patches are worth they're weight in gold

If some album has the power to make me dance like a dinky frumply gumply girl, you gotta bet that album has magically messed up with the mechanisms in my mind in some amazingly & shinny way. And none album does it like this one

Very interesting, but doesn't appeal to me like it does to others.

Having your hair done in the last hair salon at the end of the universe. I may be diminishing in health, but at least I go out looking fabulous.

okay so its obvious that oblivion is the best track, but the rest is perfectly fine stuff too. maybe its too overproduced for some, which i could understand, but its still a good set of songs regardless

I feel this is incredibly underrated on this website. While it may be technically or musically simplistic (recorded in GarageBand, lots of loops), it's pop that hits the pleasure centers of the brain like nothing else I've heard in the past few years. It's futuristic music. I...get it.

Visions is a contagion. An album I "should" have grown tired of after the hundredth listen. How an album with such rudimentary arpeggiated sounds and hard to discern vocals can devour my brain like the myth of the carnivorous earwhig is beyond me. Maybe I should just enjoy the album and not overthink it, but maybe part of my enjoyment comes from the enigma itself. Regardless, "Visions" remains on repeat years later.

She really succeeds in creating her own universe. I saw her live with Doldrums (who made their album on her computer btw), great show!

Fantastic. I don't remember the first day I listened to this album, but I know I didn't love it near as much as I do now, it is a grower, and I now have a completely unhealthy obsession with my lady Claire.

Funny thing I would say. This is not my favorite album of all time, not even in my top 10, it very well might be my most listened to album of all time even though I only listened to it the first time 8 months ago. I have listened to each track at least 30 times, and Oblivion, Genesis and Circumambient upwards of 80 times.
