AllMusic Review by

This all-instrumental, all-keyboard album is designed to be "inspirational and meditative," according to the liner notes, and in its new-agey way, it will succeed for those who listen in that way. Full of breathy tones, floating synthesizer washes, and soaring string sounds, it's music to stargaze by. Those looking for Wakeman's virtuosity, however, should seek elsewhere. Note: the tracks "Peace of Mind," "Astral Traveler," "Dream On," and "Moondreams" here have nothing to do with the songs of the same names by Boston, Yes, Aerosmith, and Buddy Holly, respectively, and "Future Memories" here has nothing to do with the album of the same name by Patrick Moraz -- the music on Visions is all by Wakeman.
