Visions is the third studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Grimes, released on January 31, 2012. Her first since signing with 4AD, the album was recorded entirely on Apple's GarageBand software in Grimes' apartment over a three-week period. It was mixed by Grimes and her manager Sebastian Cowan at their La Brique Studio Space.

Released January 31, 2012. 1. Infinite ♡ Without Fulfillment Lyrics. This album is the first album create as such : I started by the intro and the intro. I recorded it in 3 weeks. I had an accurate idea about it. Everything is written, everything is intentional. Her influence for this album : Before written this album, I listened a lot of R'n'B and IDM songs. This album rings like the merging of this two styles. About the artwork : I wanted it pink and red.

Grimes is the one-woman cyborg-pop project of Montreal's Claire Boucher. Visions, her compulsively listenable third album, is an electro cotton-candy entryway to her peculiar kind of bliss. As a child I feared the day the world would be taken over by robots; these days I am seized by a much more potent fear that I am becoming one. Digital interfaces invade our imagination in strange, tangible ways, and with each day I spend in front of my computer screen, the red Gchat dots representing my friends and co-workers start to look more and more like HAL.

There's no doubt that Visions is an excellent album. Though it may be Boucher's third proper LP as Grimes, it sounds like the debut of a young artist, which is to say there are some missteps-albeit a rare occurrence.

Her debut album Visions-picked up from small label Arbutus by indie giant 4AD-continues down the same path, a precocious little pop album made from broken keyboards and Boucher's elfish, multi-tracked voice. If the distinctly homemade, slightly grainy quality of the synths doesn't grab you first, her voice will: Boucher can go high, and she spends most of Visions in her extreme upper register.

Nothing personal
Take note that Nightmusic is edited with the Mozart's Requiem intro and outro cut out from the track.

Fantastic. Can't believe ambrosia is on this thing - it's a gorgeous track that blends perfectly with the overall tone of the album.

IMO this is pressing to have especially for the Canadian bonus cut, Ambrosia, a pop acid tune similar in vibe to Tin Man's work (somewhat present throughout the LP). All the other tracks are excellent too of course and not lacking any of the exclusive selections available on the USA/European pressings.
