4 stars Their finest release.

Visions Fugitives combines the styles we have come to know from Mekong Delta into an extraordinarily original and insightful release. The thrash styled originals are technical, but not over-teched to the point of any kind of wankery. They remain their integrity and you will find they are quite catchy. The best aspect is the bass line during the chorus of Imagination. This combined with the vocal effects makes for quite a good listening experience.

The middle of the album is composed of classical songs (a Mekong Delta tradition). Track 3 is especially unsettling as a solo piece with very dark themes. This album also deals heavily with war, as a very politically charged album (a la Megadeth) with lines liek "all of our leaders wage with war" and "destiny is knocking". Personally, I feel the message works much better with the vocal effects added because of the hypnotic state it brings you towards.

This has the band's finest original material, as well as great classical compositions. You don't have to be too open-minded to enjoy this one, as it's not near as "thrashy" as some of their earlier material, and combining this with classical renditions makes it one that most music listeners will enjoy.
