Album Review

Despite not being exactly a household name, Emilie Autumn's musical résumé will be pretty darn impressive to the average alt-rock fan, as she has been involved in past projects with the likes of Courtney Love and Billy Corgan. Autumn's style incorporates quite a few contrasting elements, including cabaret, electronic, symphonic, new age, and good ol' rock & roll (and heavy on the theatrical bombast). On her fourth release overall, 2006's Opheliac, Autumn's varied approach is dutifully on display throughout. It's easy to detect similarities at times between Autumn and such renowned female artists as Kate Bush and Tori Amos (especially on such tracks as "Swallow" and "The Art of Suicide"), but when you come across the electronic/symphonic "Gothic Lolita" and the swirling "Let the Record Show," Autumn sheds her influences and finds her own original voice. Opheliac will certainly not be construed as Top 40 music, but what it does manage being is a true — and ofttimes, an original — artistic statement. [A bonus CD version was also released.]

Everything you ever wanted to know

I have listened to "TOC" about five times through now, and I must say, it never gets old. Emilie Autumn and Inkydust go beyond everything you ever wanted to know, and share secrets the listner would've never guessed at. Althought they "Treebranch" (their term for going off topic), you will definitely learn a lot more about the songs than you already know. Even Emilie Autumn's biggest fans will still learn a thing or two. Overall, "TOC" has made listening to Opheliac much more unenjoyable than it already was, and I now actually know what the songs are about when I listen to them. Definitely worth the eight hours, in fact, I even keep it on my iPod for those days when I need to kill an hour or two. Recommended for all fans of Emilie Autumn. :)

A must have for all fans!

The lovely Miss Emilie Autumn tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about her amazing music. A must have for all fans! Especially to those of you who have ever heard a song of hers, and wondered what it just might be about, this is the perfect way to find out in detail. ^_^

Amazingly Captivating

I bought Opheliac first, being in love with EA. I often wondered if I was right about some of the songs meanings. I've THOROUGHLY enjoyed TOC. I've found out all kinds of gems for each song. The most exciting part, though, is all the info you learn about EA herself. It's almost autobiographical. I have listened to it 3 times already in a week. It never gets old. Her voice and laughter is so soothing and addictive. Of course, I love her twisted mind, but I never realized just how much I have in common with her. I really love having the complete understanding of her songs. If you're a fan at all, this is well worth your time and money. You won't regret it. Plus, she does some nice singing on the fly as well on TOC. Just really awesome.
