Miami-based trance producer George Acosta's Visions Behind Expressions is a fairly typical effort for him. On most tracks, he uses soothing female vocals singing romantic sentiments, although "Something About You" and "Round the Clock" feature male singers, and there are two instrumentals, "Crystalline" and "Things Are Not the Way They Used to Be." Acosta maintains his tempos, even though he occasionally drops the beat out entirely and relies on a steady pulse to guide dancers. This sort of music doesn't necessarily reward innovation, and Acosta is not trying to break new ground; he's trying to keep dancefloors filled, and with this music he is likely to succeed.
