The Vision - 4AD
FILTER Grade: 84%
By Loren Poin on November 14, 2011
The Vision, the latest from bass music sensation Joker, strikes a wondrous balance of doom and poppiness. Dramatic and beautiful, the record seems a document of a tumultuous time; cries in the night, deadly serious. Take “Slaughter House,” an overwhelming dystopian vision of electro-pop glory until it’s incinerated by the masterfully generated synthesizers’ U.F.O. jet-wash. Throw some Sonic the Hedgehog vibes in, and you’ve got yourself a bombastic record.
