Why doesn't Visual Studio display my MSBuild message texts?

In order to debug an MSBuild script i added a couple of tasks, but when i asked Visual Studio to Build i didn’t get to see the output… By default Visual Studio will use “Minimal” as verbosity level. You can change this via Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> Build and Run.
