VAST captures the imagination, and makes you pay attention to every lyric, every chord, and every industrial scraping on the CD. From the strong begginnings of 'Here', to the deep 'Touched', the so-true-it's-frightening 'Pretty When You Cry', the screaming 'Temptation', the unforgettable 'Three Doors', and the deep and moving final track 'You', this is amazing stuff. Worth every penny, a hertily reccommended album that defies genre, while appealing universally.

First, a confession. I don't own this album. A friend lent me his copy and in this day and age it would've been simple to produce a 'backup' copy. But we all know this is wrong. And when someone produces music with the towering, soaring, stirring brilliance contained on this thin piece of plastic, you know why. At times arrogant, melancholy, triumphant and maybe even deviant, you know you are in the presence of a unique talent. Guitar, drums, bass, violin and synth combine with thought provoking lyrics to create a theatre of audio sensation, just like it says on the tin. So if you crave the pomp and swagger of Killing Joke, but could do without the politics, buy your own copy.

Unfortunatly i do not feel that i am anywhere near a good enough wordsmith to truly do this album justice. It is very near perfect, an eclectic mix of styles and emotion, make this one of the few albums that truly deserves to be listened to all the way through. From the dark, angry and gothic sounds on tracks such as Here and Pretty whan you cry; through to the soothing and truly beautiful tracks like Flames and You, this album never fails in envoking real emotion in the listener. The lyrics on the album surpass most of todays artists and have a rare ability to produce images in the listeners mind. There is also some of the best string arrangements i have heard in this style of music, combine this with the various forms of chanting (sounds so much better than you'd expect, honestly) and you get one of the most powerful,original and distinctive albums of the past 10 years. However John Crosby (the man behind VAST) does seem to have a perchant for making ever-so-slightly less than cheerful music, and some of the tracks may increase your chances of cutting yourself when shaving your wrists.
To sum up, this really is a great album. Far exceeding the quality of its follow up, music for the people. It is perhaps not the easiest of albums to 'Get into' but then how many of the really great albums are. Once you get past the superficial branding of GOTH music (which this album recieved) and the dark nature of some of the songs, this will probably be one of the most rewarding albums you'll own.

I found this group completely by accident but have never looked back since and have followed them with their following two albums (to date)
This album is still played every week on my stereo even though I have owned it for many a year. From the first moment to the last this album has high hopes and the song "Here" is a good example. The song is an explosion for the senses, containing so many layers that it takes a good few listens to pick out and appreciate each of them. The whole album just seems perfect from Crosby's vocals to the loops of monks singing and the deep bass.
The album itself contains a good mix of the loud and softer songs giving it a good balance but I think the thing that this album accomplishes is to be itself in an ever more mainstream environment. It is what it is and it's brilliant. Whether you're looking for a change, are already a Vast fan or just want to hear good music... this album will deliver!

Vast is a somewhat unknown band but none the less is one the most fresh and contemporary bands I have seen around!! Each of the multitude of songs is unique in its own way, from the searing guitar filled boom of 'here' to the emotional sound of 'touched'! Each song effects the listener in a number of ways, mainly through the use of a number of different instruments and the powerful effect of Jon Crosby's passion and lyrics! This album suits a whole number of emotions and thus effects you always, whatever state you are in personally. This album is refreshing and amazing and should be checked out by anyone wanting a change from the usual rock music! I salute Vast for the daring way that they have decided to take their music; for this album truly does effect you to the core of your soul!

I bought Visual Audio Sensory Theatre on the strength of "Touched", which blew my socks off watching Angel season 1 episode 2 on DVD. "Touched" is still one of my all time top-20 songs. I long ago decided that music was only worth buying when it made me leap out of my chair and head-bang, pogo, air-guitar or engage in some other involuntary jigging and/or gurning. This definately qualifies. No-one else that I know of has yet successfully blended folk-wistfullness-sincerity, spot-on metal guitar and world-music throat-singing. You just never hear real wistfullness, which is one of the things VAST do well which you don't normally hear. The other things are very specifically: guilt, remorse, faith-struggle and unrepentant desire in the full knowledge it's wrong. We live in a world of reflexive mandatory self-indulgence and instant gratification, in which the only thing forbidden is to tell anyone that anything they want to do is immoral, especially that anyone ought not to have sex. The power of VAST's sound comes from Jon Crosby's unquiet Catholic conscience. It is the Catholic conscience which produces the true aching sorrow, doubt, self-loathing, and queasy tension between attraction and remorse. Just as it is precisely those habitually condemned characteristics which make a person heart-focussed and loveable, so they make VAST's music outstandingly evocative and wonderful. It is his Catholic conscience which allows the soaring honesty about both his love for the beauty of sacredness in the Roman fashion, and about his own doubts about what is real. The reason these themes, and sounds, stand out is precisely because the Christian conscience has been so stigmatised and silenced in the interests of consumerism.

For industrial, goth and emo fans this album is a must-have.
