Binary Review – Lindsey Stirling “Shatter Me”

2 min read

shatter meLindsey Stirling has a new album out titled Shatter Me and me being a fan I had to write a review on it. Until recently I was not aware that Lindsey Stirling was a contestant on America’s Got Talent a few seasons ago. She made it toward the end but eventually got voted off which just motivated her to be her own star and succeeded. Now she has a new original album out and it’s the best yet.  You can also read another review I did on her first album.

If you are not familiar with her style, the best way to describe it is a mix of classical violin and techno/trance but the techno piece is not overwhelming. Her fast, precise violin skills partnered with hard, computerized beats and melodies make it hard to believe that a person is playing the violin. I find myself listening to her and other artists like her while I am working. It’s smooth enough to be distracting mentally, not full classical to put me to sleep and has the right tempo to get me into a groove. Her newest album Shatter Me has just as much violin but takes the techno beats and speed up a notch and I love it.

A new introduction in Shatter Me are vocal tracks. Where before the songs were purely instrumental, Shatter Me now included full vocal songs. The title track Shatter Me and We Are Giants are the two vocals. I do not like this approach because the songs, although good, take away the reason I listen to Lindsey Stirling… the violin. That’s my only complaint I have about this album, even though the vocal song is very, very good, it a departure from what I prefer and hope it’s not a permanent path to a full pop album.

I would recommend this album to anyone that likes classic, techno, pop music and/or has an appreciation of music in general.

You can listen to the album on Spotify or get it on iTunes, Amazon, or anywhere else that sells music.

End of Line.
