It could well be the case that my idea of Claire Boucher being a self-made pop star, whose look, sound and artwork originated in her Toronto bedroom, is a mere romantic fantasy and that she's just as manufactured as the rest of them (unlikely, but I have been surprised before), but regardless, this still sounds as original and innovative as it did back in 2012. Oblivion is, alongside Frank Ocean's Pyramids, my favourite song of the past decade, yet it surprises how neatly it fits among more leftfield and experimental stuff like Eight or Be A Body.

'Visions' is an incredibly creative and intriguing artpop/electronica album. Most of the tracks include catchy beats and abstract lyrics that define Claire Boucher's unique style. 'Oblivion' is a song I can listen to over and over and not get tired of. The only critique I have of the album is that at times Claire's high-pitched vocals distract from the other aspects of the music, a prime example being the song 'Eight.' However, this is still a very enjoyable listen and I'd recommend it to all fans of indie and electronic music. My favorite tracks are 'Oblivion,' 'Nightmusic,' and 'Be a Body.'

The very definition of otherworldly pop. By turns spooky and beautiful, this great record may fall slightly flatter in its second half, but it still manages to remain bewitching throughout, conjuring dark, imaginative soundscapes with Grimes' magnificent production and alien vocals.

It's cooler than cool, contains some outright bangers ("Genesis" & "Oblivion" are my favourites) with simple yet great lyrics. It is indeed one of the best albums of the year, pop or otherwise.

In her glowing review for this album, Pitchfork's Lindsay Zoladz characterizes Claire Boucher's work as complicating "the all-too-tidy 'post-internet' tag by bringing into focus the many contrasts at the heart of her music: tensions between pop structure and diffuse atmosphere, between technology and the human body, between sensory-overloaded hyper-presence and transcendence." What a great summary of what I love about this album. The song that fully captures these paradoxes in Grimes's work, to my ear, is the rapturously delicate yet ripped-apart "Colour of Moonlight (Antiochus)," which blends soaring vocals with Purple Rain-esque synth beats.

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.
