Originally recorded in 1979, Bernard Szajner’s concept album Visions of Dune is based around Frank Herbert’s cult Dune Trilogy. A journey in the best sense of the word, this album builds stunning worlds out of grand artistic strokes, with imposing drones and cacophonous percussion colliding to evoke interstellar travel and mysterious life forms. From the prog rock pomp of the introductory 'Dune' to the modular masterpiece that is 'Shai-Hulud', through to the spine-tingling shill of the previously unreleased 'Duke', it's a bold and immersive listen that's well deserving of this sumptuous rerelease.
