5.0 out of 5 stars One of 49!, 6 April 2013
This review is from: Fight Like a Girl (Audio CD)
This is quite simply a stunning piece of music!

Whether it is the product of a deeply disturbed mind or the creation of a musical genius is open to debate; that is for you to make up your own mind. Listen and go figure!

There can be no question though that Emilie Autumn has created a piece of music that is unique, undefinable and inspirational.

If you are looking for something that is
"left of centre"
"off the wall"
"somewhat macabre"
"a little bizarre"
This is the album for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Step Back?!!, 20 July 2007
This review is from: Paper Walls (Audio CD)
I will begin this review by stating that Paper Walls is a good album, acomplished musicians and songwriters displaying their obvious talent. It is a step up from Ocean Avenue, but for me it is still (too much) in that same dimension, so much so that it may as well be entitled Ocean Avenue Too!! Lights and Sounds was such a radical leap in songwriting and orchestration that it almost completely redefined Yellowcard's whole sound and direction. To me L&S is a masterpiece of musicianship, PW is a return to safe ground, to a tried and tested formula, a fan pleaser or more significantly a record company pleaser. There are highlights no doubt, the powerful melody of "Shadows and Regrets" beatifully blends acoustic and electric guitar with a haunting interlude from the violin, "Five becomes Four" is a thumping rock song again heavily featuring the violin, "Paper Walls" is destined to become an epic, both on record and I am sure, live! The rest of the album is all thoroughly enjoyable stuff - except maybe for the incredibly corny "Dear Bobbie" - but Yellowcard can do this with their eyes shut, they are capable of far greater things!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars After one listening............., 19 Feb 2007
This review is from: Welcome The Night (Audio CD)
This is not The Ataris, at least not as we know them. Both lyrically and mucically the writings of Kris Roe and intrinsically John Collura have moved on, almost into a whole new genre. Gone are the love-sick, angst-ridden melodramas of Kris's youth, they have been replaced with more mature emotions, thoughts and feelings, lyrics to savour and melodies to grow into, songs that will evolve with repeated listenings. This CD is a huge step into a different direction, the bell may be tolling for fans who want the End to be Forever, but for The Ataris to grow and mature it will prove to be an essential step towards a better future!

5.0 out of 5 stars If I die tomorrow.....will this review live on forever?!, 4 Dec 2003
This review is from: So Long, Astoria (Audio CD)
After hearing The Ataris cover of 'Boys of Summer' and being totally awestruck - a better version of a great song, I decided to check out 'So Long Astoria'- I think I discovered something special! An album packed with songs of emotional depth and power coupled with meaningful lyrics that soar far above the teenaged angst ridden emotions of contemporary American Punk artists. 'In this Diary','Unopened Letter to the World', 'Looking Back on Today' and the supreme 'Eight of Nine' to name but a few, reach inside you to evoke a sense of what living is all about.For a ride on the emotional rollercoaster of life 'So Long Astoria' has a front seat!
