3 stars A new and welcome addition to the symph prog scene in England.

This band is a new band and this is their debut album. The musicians have a lot of experience here and I refer to the interview for the full band story. The experience though shows throughout the album.

The music here is instrumental symphonic prog with a lot of influences from the new age and ambient scene. Add to that a lot of influences from the celtic folk music genre + a lot of influences from the symph prog genre + church music and religious hymns. In short; Visions is one big melting pot. Just like an old pot on the stowe where you put in sauce, carrots, meat, onions and potatoes. The result is a proper British meal and that is exactly what Visions is. Visions is nothing but made in United Kingdom.

I really like the mixture of music styles here incorporated into each track. There are even some tasty bagpipes here. But most of the album is more pastoral than that. Some guitar solos breaks up the symphonic pastoral melodies. The flutes here are great though. My main gripe with this album is the lack of any really great tracks. The music on Visions is a bit too bland for my liking and is bordering to the muzak genre. But this is still a good album which will interest the followers of this genre. As a debut album, it is a good start. Feel free to give us some more of the same, please.
