This woman is brilliant. I mean, I like electronic music, and I definitely don’t hate classical instruments or music, but this album man. THIS ALBUM. I don’t know how she fuses these two genres so incredibly well, but she does. I’ve heard people criticize electronic music for it’s general lack of emotion, its “sameness”, the lack of creativity some electronic artists have, etc etc. The next time you hear anyone give criticism like that, make them listen to this album.
Every track has what makes great electronic music great, under of some of the best soloist violin I’ve ever heard. The replacement of the lower strings in a quartet the modulated bass of dubstep, the hard, rhythmic beats of house, is just so goddamn inspiring. I haven’t cried at beauty before. I really haven’t. But this album made me cry at the beauty of music.
I haven’t really come across anything else like this album, ever. It’s a unique piece of work, from a very unique artist. I hope Lindsey Stirling finds the support she needs to continue doing this.
