Vision Talk - Elevation
Synthpop Vision Talk is a Swedish synthpop band and even though they are my fellow countrymen I've managed to miss their existents until now. Did I miss out on much? Well, not really that much. Hear me out and I'll tell you why.

First of all, Vision Talk sounds pretty much like most of the synthpop bands I've heard during my 15 years in this genre, the only good thing though is that they actually don't imitate Depeche Mode, which is a relief. Instead it's all about the smooth, poppy and cute.

One thing in this kind of music that is very important is that the singer could do his or her job. Most of the time, the singer actually manages pretty well, even though the voice could be a bit flat now and then and some notes simply isn't there, even though the effort is made.

If you are a big fan of synthpop this might be worth checking out, but to me it's a bit too much standard to keep me interested in the long run. Mix it up a little and find that edge that makes your music stand out from the crowd.
