CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club

She continues her march toward accessibility, rendering hazy, quixotic sketches into tangible, hook-heavy electro-pop.

90
musicOMH

It's an album to live in and love, to dance to and to wallow in.

86
Coke Machine Glow

Visions, Boucher’s fourth formal release in just under two years and the best thing she’s yet put her name to by far, is very likely to be weird music’s worldwide coming out party.

85
Pitchfork

Visions finds Boucher mining not just the clean brightness of Aphex Twin-like atmospherics but also the immediacy of straight-up mall-pop

80
PopMatters

Visions’ rebellious contrariness to evade classification is part of the design and certainly part of the charm.

80
NME

It’s like skipping through a thousand excellent tracks on your iPod shuffle and isolating 13 perfect moments.

80
No Ripcord

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

78
Beats Per Minute

Delicious yet uncomplicated, satisfying but hardly filling, Visions showcases an artist with clear talent and potential.

75
The 405

Were this an EP, it might have been a perfect release, but as it stands Visions, while improving on previous work, is not yet the career defining moment that Boucher seemed to suggest it might be.

70
Consequence of Sound

Visions is a remarkable outing for Boucher in that it manages to showcase her knack for spinning bits and pieces from all points on the musical spectrum into crafty, easily digestible pop.

70
Spin

Boucher's talent lies in the balance of exploiting her gifts and leveraging what's come before her, but judiciously.

70
FACT Magazine

As time wears on you start to feel that things are a bit too ethereal, as ideas fall short of solidifying into concrete hooks and structures begin to feel just slightly aimless

70
Drowned in Sound

Everything on Visions smells crisp and clean, doused in eco-friendly laundry detergent; there is no stench of compromise here.

50
Under The Radar

Visions isn’t as much of an evolution as it is an elongation
