Review by Prog-jester
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Few days ago I've chanced to buy 5 second-hand albums of that band (project?) by 3 $ !!! To my luck, they were in a good state. The first I listened was that one - VISIONS.

Since the very first notes I've clearly understood what will I have here - instrumental and meditational New Age with some World-Music/Sympho Prog/Space Rock/Indo-rock (due to sitar and tribalesque patterns)/you-name-them influences. Flawless as a background, GANDALF's music is not much worthy as a Prog itself (sorry for saying that). Being a proto-ENIGMA stuff (kinda), "Visions" lacks focus. Maybe it's stupid to say that about backgroundish New Age, but since it's here...OK, I'll try not to be THAT rude - melodies are good, the atmosphere is hypnotizing and this album (and the whole GANDALF's collection I got) is my mommy's favouritest now. That's why 3 stars - you have them Heinz! Thank to my mommy! :)

Review by SouthSideoftheSky
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
4 stars The Magician's Theme

Visions is a very enjoyable early album from Gandalf blending a variety of modern and ancient sounds and styles. Among more usual Rock instruments such as guitars (electric and acoustic) and keyboards (analog and digital) we find for example some very appealing traditional Indian instruments like sitar and tabla which add a very interesting touch to this dreamy and atmospheric, yet melodic, music.

Like most of Gandalf's works Visions is entirely instrumental. It is also a conceptual album (though it is not so easy to determine precisely what the concept is about; but this is as it should be, with a focus on the music). It actually reminds me somewhat of Camel's The Snow Goose (mostly the calmer and more reflective moments of that album), but Gandalf relies more on Folk and traditional music than Classical/Symphonic influences and there are no drums here (though assorted percussions).

My introduction to Gandalf's music was much later albums like Gallery Of Dreams (featuring Steve Hackett) and To Our Children's Children (featuring Tracy Hitchings), and it is only recently that I am discovering his earlier albums. So far in my investigations of this interesting multi-instrumentalist from Austria, Visions is by far the best studio album I've heard from him and it is very good indeed.

Visions is an excellent place to start your journey into Gandalf's vast discography

4 stars This album is a good example of how wide is the progressive musical style and how many ways are to express it. Some of the reviewers here asking why this artist even added to PA? May they haven't heard this particular album then. At least Visions IS the album why Gandlaf should be listed here. T ... (read more)

4 stars I think Gandalf had lots of focus on this release. Its a concept album and its much more of the east meets west style of music the Germans were making in the 1970s like Popul Vuh for instance but much more melodic and with the addition of synths and early drum machines. What I enjoyed most a ... (read more)
