Grimes — Visions
It's not even the Debbie Gibson ghost vocals that did it in. Grimes’ much-discussed third album is a testament to why the “less is more” philosophy exists. With just a few exceptions (namely the singles), songs swim in such an overpopulated sea of sound, it's difficult to decipher if there's a lasting melody underneath, and there's oftentimes not any palpable emotion surfacing to offer any guidance. So you listen to a track, maybe even momentarily enjoy it, but then quickly forget it as the album moves onto its next sensory overload.
