Grimes' voice on Visions will get stuck in your head. Not just her agile melodies or her pop-smart lyrics—although those will, too—but that strange, elfin voice. Or voices, really, since electro-pop artist Claire Boucher frequently loops and layers herself into harmonious polyphony. This makes her solo songs surprisingly roomy and active, her main register—a high voice that often strays into baby-ish twee—playing against thumping beats, spacey synths and less modulated vocals without cluttering up the frequency range. It's a captivating sound, but it would be academic without such supremely catchy pop tunes as back-to-back pair "Genesis," with its koto-like synth lines and ecstatic chorus, and "Oblivion," which displaces girl group harmonies and handclaps for a dark, stalking taunt.
