With its 2012 EP If You Were a Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack, the Orlando quintet Sleeping with Sirens unplugs and goes acoustic. Silky-voiced Kellin Quinn bookends the EP with two reworked songs from the band's 2010 debut album, With Ears to See, and Eyes to Hear. “Scene One—James Dean & Audrey Hepburn” sets the tone with a lovely, stripped-down version where he sings a new and softer life into the song. Quinn and his band close out the recording by transforming the title track from a wound-up screamo storm of raw emotion into a gripping power ballad. In between, Sleeping with Sirens graces us with three new tunes. “Roger Rabbit” is beachy campfire R&B with a panoramic chorus replete with symphonic cellos. Quinn does well to approximate the feeling of nervous, lovesick nausea in “Stomach Tied in Knots,” where he sings about that universal feeling of losing appetite and sleep when we can no longer have somebody we urgently need. The band picks up the pace in the shuffling, string-laden “Don’t You Ever Forget About Me.”
There seems to be no negative thing I can say about sleeping with sirens I love all their music and can't wait until I see them in Houston
No, I'm not a fangirl that will give this CD 5 stars no matter what. I'm a 20 year old guy that is giving his honest opinion of the music itself, no lust involved.
I think the acoustic versions of the songs give an interesting and fresh approach to the originals. I also feel like Kellin's voice is improving. In the first album, it was more of him just yelling melodically, but with this album, you really get to see that he can pretty much sing whatever. His vocal range and control is perfect. Overall, I love these songs very much, and I'm glad to see that this band has more than one side to them. Great job, SWS!
Just as beautiful as we all knew it'd be.
