iTunes Review

Pardon the pun, but Ellie Goulding’s sophomore album is light-years ahead of 2011’s Lights—which now plays with an airy innocence compared with 2012’s Halcyon. “Don’t Say a Word” sets a darker tone with brooding beats and shadowy ambiance, as Goulding's lyrics reach out to grasp the last functioning piece of a dying relationship. But Goulding cleverly contrasts vulnerable emotions with a voice that sounds more assertive and strong than anything sung in Lights. There’s a shaking quaver to her timbre in the following “My Blood,” which shifts between a Kate Bush-esque fragility in the verses and an empowering chorus wrought with the soulful strength of a modern R&B anthem. “Anything Could Happen” is the real game-changer here. It’s complexly crafted, with pulsing beats in the refrain that were forged from sharply edited bursts of her own vocal samples. Within these self-contained rhythms is a melody that interweaves with the catchy hooks draped over the chorus like a net. Of the deluxe version’s five bonus tracks, both “Ritual” and “Without Your Love” play with bombastic presence.

Loved Ellie from the start and forever always <3

Ahhh sooo immensely proud of Ellie!!! She is such a sweetheart ;') Each and every one of these songs is pure gold, absolutely breathtaking! They're each so unique and have such different sounds when compared to the songs from "Lights" and "Bright Lights." What an amazing direction she has taken, tribal and anthemic, with the same indescribable beauty...beautifully written and beautifully sung as always! Loved you from the start and forever always Ellie <3

😘😘😘😘
