I fell in love with Vast the moment I first heard the song, "Free." Its heavy guitars give it a fabulous mosh-worthy quality. It's strong and straightforward. It's angry and triumphant.
I soon discovered that there's more of Vast's music to love than just "Free." Music for People is a musical masterpiece - the perfect album for those days when you just feel like you need to scream (and that's pretty much every day, isn't it?). The album is full of emotion and energy - full of the questions that everyone asks at some point. The songs deal with doubt and despair, hopelessness and anger, and - through it all - victory.
Vast's music is entrancing and creative. You'll be captivated by the slow, haunting, "I Don't Have Anything," the poppier "Land of Shame" (which sounds almost Beatles-like - only much darker), and the beautifully symphonic "A Better Place."
Music for People is one of the best albums I've tripped over in a long time. Once I put it in my CD player, it didn't leave for months - and it still makes frequent returns.

I hope and pray it's not downhill from here for VAST. His debut CD was so phenomenal, that I'm afraid nothing else will ever measure up. Music for People IS a good CD, however, not as good as the first album. The songs here fail to touch my soul like on the first CD. I'm thinking Jon Crosby might have to kick out the commercialized producer, and go with somebody more edgy and experimental. Even better: Get a new label, and fast! Before it's too late!

I love metal. Love rock and roll, old school style...
But this album makes me so happy and sad in one fell swoop.
It's just a great damn album. Perfect from beginning to end. It makes you feel good in a blues type way, but works so much better than the blues.
"i dont have anything" is the best song of 2000/2001 in my book, and "blue" is the most beautiful song ever, easily. even more beautiful than any Elton John (early) or Radiohead song.
enough said. i have been in love for over 3 years, and I know you will too.

If you ever heard an album from VAST, you know exactally why they're/he's so great. It's like NIN, but then not at all. It's equally as beautiful as NIN's Fragile album, but less dark and more like chillout stuff. Monks are sampled much less here than on the debut, and the orchestra is more like what it was replaced for.
VAST's albums are so different, it's not even that easy to tell that both are the same. Either way, this one's pretty unique itself, as "Free" is the only thing that's any heavier than the debut, and "My TV and You" is the only real industrial song.
Chants appear everywhere on the debut, but this time, it's left to only two tracks: "What Else Do I Need?" and the excellent "A Song Without A Name". It isn't really gothic despite a high Cure influence and is more of a melodic album, doesn't sound so much like Sisters of Mercy.
However, I think that everyone should own it. This music deserves to be heading on the music charts, and I think that they rival Queens of the Stone Age at times, and that's saying something. Inspired stuff, I swear. I think that someday VAST's word-of-mouth name will get him high album sales, though it really hasn't mattered recently.
"Free" got me into this CD, as the album DID need a rocker. When I heard it on the radio, I loved the lyrics and I'd keep an interest with VAST.
Crosby is also very good on "The Gates of Rock 'N Roll", a song that has this interesting beat to it, and the bass lines sort of represent The The. The melody and guitars are what rock most.
Don't believe it's beautiful? Listen to "Lady of Dreams", the instrumental. I just love listening to that every day before I go to sleep. As well as the album, and I've just really been blown away by VAST... This is poetry, and music for people is an appropiate title if you've heard anyting by VAST before.

While Visual Audio Sensory Theater was an amazing album in its own right, Music For People is an incredible work of art. Jon Crosby's classical and rock influences clash wonderfully on songs like "The Gates of Rock and Roll". "Land of Shame" seems like a nod to The Doors while "Lady of Dreams" is a piece worthy of a Romantic era composer's praise. Some songs carry on the spirit of the first album ("Free"; "Song Without a Name"), but "I Don't Have Anything" nearly establishes the mood of this effort on its own, the theme of intense longing supported by a classical tinged U2 sound. In my opinion, it's among the greatest love songs of this generation. Consider this Trent Reznor and Moby having a baby with The Edge delivering it.

The sophmore release from VAST takes the listener on a fresh new musical journey that cannot be compared to the debut release. I find it very strange that people who praised the first album for being so 'different', 'haunting', 'beautiful', etc. Can actually complain about this album. They complain that Jon is going 'mainstream'. What? Bands who release the same album over and over again are the ones that are 'mainstream'. It was even incinuated that Crosby said he wanted to 'go mainstream'. Music is about eliciting emotions, creating atmosphere. He simply implied that this album was exploring different themes, emotions, atmospheres. However, that isn't even entirely true. The most ridiculous thing is that this, like the first album, has hardly sold at all. Which is another issue entirely. Anyways, I got off track there. It took me a couple of listens to get into this album. I got into the first release right away, but now, I listen to MFP more than V.A.S.T. I hope that Jon Crosby keeps making music that he feels passionately about because it really is for the benefit of the entire musical community. Who knows, maybe someday more people will catch on and then VAST really will go 'mainstream'. In the meantime, I'll keep enjoying what Jon and all other artists pour their souls into...their music.
