Ellipse is my favorite album of hers. First Train Home, Wait Out, Tidal, and Half Life would all belong on her best-of album, in my opinion. SFY might be more consistent overall, but I don't think...

Her songs tend to fit in four categories for me: ones I love, ones that have novelty/experimental appeal, ones I find somewhat bland, and ones that do nothing for me. Sparks is no different; I'd...

I only saw one video in which she talked about using the heartbeat and showed the main piano chord progression for the first time. It was much slower than the song turned out and I liked it much more...

Life Will Write the Words was heads and shoulders above anything else he's done, so it's a bummer that didn't get him more attention. He sounded so much more mature and in control. Optimistic for the...

Wow, swap vocalists and that song could have been on either The Used's In Love and Death or CIWWAF's Rotation without anyone noticing a difference. I'm all for a producer having a distinct style, but...

I've had a similar response to several of the new tracks. She's messing around a lot with the production and song structures, and she's one of the best at doing that, but it's definitely detracting...

It covers a lot of ground, so I only love parts of it, but I appreciate the song as a whole. The chronological journal aspect of it is neat, but it's also interesting as a stylistic career...

The verses of Undo are among my favorite parts of any of their songs. Other favorites I don't see mentioned a lot are the intros of the 3 EPs: Facedown, Intro/Set3, and Anobrain. They set the themes...

Honestly, I haven't seen any live video where I felt Matty's vocals were particularly strong. The band puts on a good show, but I think his vocals are the weakest part (unlike their albums, where his...

They use a ton of backing vocal and instrument tracks live (you can especially hear it on "think we better go"), but they're also definitely all singing/playing their parts. Matty has said in...

I'm with you 100% on the "super clean safe alt-rock" aspect; the band has played it remarkably safe on the self-titled and this new single (and, to a lesser extent, on New Again as well). That being...

My bad, I somehow missed the "more to come" part when I copied it. New post up today that added:



Jeff Friedl is the live drummer for Ashes Divide. Still hoping this is tied to new APC music.
