iTunes Review

For a work so heavily reliant upon synthesizers and other unnatural tones, Ellipse sounds surprisingly organic. This is mostly thanks to Imogen Heap’s delicately emotive voice, which she loops and processes into various forms ranging from the scat singing of “Earth” to the bubbly bounce of “Swoon” to the ethereal atmospherics of “Between Sheets” and “Half Life”. Her interesting song structures and the multiple layers of odd electronica give her tunes their rich textures, especially on such standouts as “First Train Home”, “Aha”, and “Canvas”. Not all of the songs on the album are so sonically dense; Heap also offers the relatively minimalist “2-1”, with its slow build and pleasant use of strings, as well as the spare piano instrumental “The Fire”. Ellipse is the third release from the former Frou Frou member and it’s a charming and intriguing patchwork of sounds. This deluxe version includes instrumental versions of each song.

The reason "Albums" still exist

It's rare nowadays for me to be satisfied with an album in its entirety. I find myself purchasing individual songs over albums as most albums contain only a few good songs. This album is not one of those albums. It far surpassed my expectations. I purchased the Deluxe version of the album and I am curious to see how many regular vs deluxe albums are sold. If you appreciate this style of music it seems only logical that the deluxe version is the way to go. I know this album was just released but I have to admit that I am already looking forward to the next one. No pressure!

Ravishing

The texture of her voice with the instruments creates an exquisite blend. In my opinion Imogen's songs aren't just 'songs', they are imagery. She creates imagery with her voice. Ellipse speaks to the ears the same way a painting speaks to the eyes. I think something so wonderful should be celebrated and recognized :)

AMAZING

Biography

Born: December 09, 1977 in Essex, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

As a rule, group efforts are normally launched before a solo career — not after a solo career is in full swing. First, the artist makes a name for himself/herself as part of a group, then the artist leaves the group to become a full-time solo performer. That's the standard procedure, but British singer/songwriter Imogen Heap took a different approach, having already established her solo credentials for several years before becoming half of the London-based duo Frou Frou. Although based in London,...
