Format: Audio CD
First single Sweet Troubled Soul is an obvious choice for a single as it's one of the strongest and most memorable tracks on the album, with sharp, charging guitars. It is however, far away from the pure pop of My Coco or Somewhere Across Forever. In fact 'Harmonies For The Haunted' says it all; while none of the tracks reach the moodiness of Moongirl from Stellastarr*'s debut, the record is altogether much darker. This isn't particularly a bad thing. Stellastarr* have melded their influences closer and more elegantly together.
Despite some reviews which state that the album's quality dips towards the end, I found that only On My Own is average. In fact there are many gems to find in this strong album- the sweet Born In A Flea Market, When I Disappear with its synth chorus and Love And Longing- all combine a pretty and subtle melodic quality with quite evocative, brooding atmospherics. Sadly Shawn Christensen's voice has lost some of its range, mainly being deep, loud and dramatic here. This is somewhat true of the whole record, which simply isn't as quirky as their debut. However, it is solid and the vocal sharing of Christensen, Amanda Tannen and Micheal Jurin gives Stellastarr* an edge along with their fusion of styles.

be careful because the other songs are average. It's clever marketing really - choose the best song, make a video out of it and fill the rest of the album with average songs. I fell that's what happened here. I was often left wondering where the band was going with the melodies of some songs. Also, Christiansen's voice on some tracks is dodgy.

HASH(0x89b555b8) out of 5 stars ignore the copy protect threat 25 Oct. 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know a lot of people who are not buying this album because they see the copy-protect threat on the cover and think they won't be able to rip if for their mp3 players, but it is very easy to bypass and this album is worth having. If you are using windows, make sure you disable autorun on your cdrom drive (hold down the shift key when you load your disk, or look for instructions on the web for a permanent fix through windows registry). If you fail to do this, loading the disk in your computer will automatically install scumware on your computer without your consent.

The album itself is excellent, and I think anyone who enjoyed the first album will enjoy this one as well. It's pretty rare that I enjoy an album from start to finish without skipping a few tracks, but this is one of those albums I can listen to straight through.

HASH(0x89f8b7d4) out of 5 stars Great Album - Glad to see they are touring UK 1 Nov. 2005
By Mr. Keith Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Criminally, this album does not seem to be commercially available in the UK, which is bizarre as we just cannot get enough of this 80s alternative sound right now, especially when it emanates from a US band. Witness the huge success of The Killers and Interpol right across Europe.

Unlike many other acts, they have managed to combine commercial melodies without falling into soft rock cliches, a la Robbie Williams. There is very little filler on the album and its melange of soaring guitars, synths and very 80s Brit Alternative vocals is great. Why they recorded in New York and LA is a mystery to me.

"On my Own" is the best thing they have ever done. Its plaintiveness reminds me of early Cocteau Twins. Just brilliant.

HASH(0x89f8c210) out of 5 stars 3.5 stars-- Great power pop, gets better with each listen! 29 Mar. 2006
By Lobster Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Somehow this band slipped through the cracks between Interpol, the Killers (this CD is much better than those), and all the other various 80's-influenced acts out there, but this is a really solid CD that gets better with each listen. You can hear the influences (Echo and the Bunnymen, the Cure, etc.), but the sound is still original and fresh. "Love and Longing" is a great tune to start with and easily holds its own with all those great 80's anthems those who grew up then know and love. But the first song, "Lost in Time," will hook you right away. "Harmonies for the Haunted" is great all the way through, and based on this CD I am going to get their debute, "My Coco."

HASH(0x89b55954) out of 5 stars Better than their first release! 21 Jan. 2008
By Mandi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Honestly, owning and having listened to both stellasarr* CDs, I'd say I prefer this over the first. I know that everyone is crazy about 'My Coco' (on the first CD) but I honestly am NOT impressed by that song (which is one of my least favorites on the other CD). If you like stella's lyrics and their upbeat style, I'd say you'll enjoy this CD. "Lost in Time," "Damn this foolish heart" and "Sweet Troubled Soul" are always getting stuck in my head and I get post-it notes thrown at me by co-workers as I can't help but sing along with them. I really enjoy the entire CD and I listen to it from start to finish regularly.

HASH(0x89b55ae0) out of 5 stars bypass the copy-protect 21 Oct. 2005
By Lina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
ALL you have to do is HOLD DOWN SHIFT key the first time you put it in your computer, this info has been in news articles and all over the internet for 2 years now and it still works(i actually learned this from the band's own forum). after the cd is in and you held down the shift key, you can use itunes or any other program to make mp3s. if you already installed the program that it came with, i recommend finding another computer to do this in.

and as for the cd, i think i like it better than their previous one, has more "oomph" somehow.
