"Vision Thing are a five-piece hailing from the North West who produce the most incredibly harmonious and beautiful music, simultaneously lowering the heartbeat yet stimulating lyrically." - LIVE review by Ian Cripps @ FATEA Magazine on 28/01/2017

"Vision Thing are a brilliant band! They opened up our last Wigan Diggers Festival - created a beautiful, relaxed, atmosphere that got the day off to a great start."
-Bob Kettle : Merry Hell & Diggers Music Festival Organiser

"These experienced musicians have produced a very respectable repertoire of songs that shout (sorry whisper) mellow, stylish (I love the use of guitar and violin) and exhilarating from start to finish - ideal listening after a stressful day."

- Martin Hovden Mighty FM

"The album (Lights) as a whole is a wonderful offering that takes the listener in a melodic haunting and at times emotional journey. So get yourself a copy put it in your CD player and take this enjoyable and thought provoking trip believe me you will not regret it."
- Andy Chamberlain - FATEA Magazine
