Four years ago Grimes released breakthrough album Visions, itself a bold and revolutionary work that played at the intersection of music, internet culture, and fantasy. In the interim she has distilled her many influences and refined her craft even further, preparing the next move. Nothing could have prepared listeners though, for this high-definition, widescreen, multi-sensorial experience. Every song that ever made you run faster at the gym, lifted your heart before your favourite team entered the stadium, caused you to run from your tent to the main stage at a festival, or made you hum happily at the supermarket is a pale shadow of any track found on this record.
