5.0 out of 5 stars So everybody thinks that I'm a f@*%ing Suicide Girl November 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Opheliac is one of those rare CDs that gets hyped without even being talked about. I live in a town where if you're not on the radio you're not known. Somehow, though, I was insanely anxious to get my hands on a copy. It took a while but all that anticipation was met gleefully with some of the most experimental and dark music I've had the pleasure of hearing in quite some time. Make no mistake, Emilie Autumn is definitely an acquired taste, but if you go in with an open mind then there's no way you won't come out satisfied.

Emilie Autumn, often referred to as the 'Anarchy Violinist', almost has duel personalities throughout the duration of Opheliac. On one hand you have the gentle, even innocent, soothing voice of a sweet girl. On the other hand you have this intense, screaming, hateful girl. When those polar opposites collide it's something to behold. Songs like the title track, Opheliac, and Liar demonstrate those two forces coming together in the most gorgeous ways possible. However, if it wasn't for the thick atmosphere in the background Emilie wouldn't be the same. Sure her lyrics are tremendous and her delivery is dead on, but that almost claustrophobic feel the beats create are amazing and help out more than I would've ever thought possible. Songs like the afforementioned Liar, I Want My Innocence Back, and God Help Me wouldn't be nearly as haunting without the often eery execution of the beats.

Opheliac opens with a nice little introduction before giving way Emilie's distorted vocals and offbeat delivery. For the most part though, it represents the rest of the record well. There's heavy industrial overtones, a lot of vocal experimentation, and an ever-present gothic feel. Swallow shows the diversity Opheliac sports from track to track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great evolution of EA's sound October 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a big jump up from her previous CD "Enchant" - that wasn't a bad album at all, but one can sense that Emilie Autumn was still searching for her own voice as she was experimenting with different sounds. Her sound has come into its own on "Opheliac", in which her classical training and compositional skills really shine through her dramatic and theatrical flair. Stylistically this CD is very consistent - EA's influences still show (imagine Kate Bush jamming with Annie Lennox, Ute Lemper, Nigel Kennedy and Kraftwerk at a Shakespearean poetry recital), but she has melded the sounds of these various artists into something of her own. Standout tracks include the title track Opheliac, Swallow, Liar, Misery Loves Company and Gothic Lolita.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense November 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
After discovering Emilie on myspace I tracked down Ophiliac and gave it a listen. I couldn't have been more impressed. I am a long time fan of the female classical/goth movement. I grew up with Switchblade Symphony and Rasputina so it was inevitable that EA would cross my path. EA has a wide range vocally and emotionally that come through quite well in Ophiliac. It took some doing but I tracked down the rest of her works on Projekt records site and picked up every CD she has made. It has proven interesting seeing such a diverse range of types music. I am definitely happy with this find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... January 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
First off, I do not listen to industrial or anything really similar to this. I am into power metal and melodic death metal. I heard this girl did the strings on an episode of Metalocalypse and so i figured i'd check this one out. The whole cd is amazing, very epic, emotional, classical and melodic...the girl actually does Sweep-arpeggios on track 3!!! its awesome! Her voice and vocal harmonies are fantastic and i love the few times she actually incorperates screaming into it. If they redid this album with a real drummer, as opposed to electronic drums, it would be a killer goth/power metal album. But overall this cd has something for everyone. Beautifully atmospherical and this gorgeous violinist has some real talent. Especially with the vocal harmonies. I'd look harder for a cheaper version of it though, i got it for 20 bucks on a link off of her website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emilie is the new Dead......... June 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Emilie Autumn is one cleaver girl...and brilliant. She seems to have taken parts of all the great female artisits that opened doors for obsure artists over the past few decades, and has come up with a sound of her own. I hear bits of Kate Bush, Nina Hagen, Bjork, Siouxsie, Sinead O'Connor, amongst others slapped with a heavy dose of Gothic/ industrial and now we have Emilie...and Emilie is MAD!

I honestly can't quit listening to "Liar"...a song that clunks and pumps along with bitter lyrics that ends up a vocal howl. You can feel her fury and the lover who spurned her. This song strongly reminds me of two other songs: "Troy" by Sinead O'connor and "Damage I've Done" by the Heads just because of it's subject matter, and it shares raw emotion just like the Heads and Sinead and brings it's own fury and sadness to the table.

"Swallow" sounds Bjork influenced on a Midol day...and her fury is subtle...but there.

The opener, "Opheliac" begins with a clasical harpsicord...and builds almost immeadiately to an industrial fury.

Emilie's voice takes on many tones and screams, not unlike Nina Hagen in her "Nunsexmonkrock" days when she used tons of vocal layerings.

One fault Emilie does, though, is sometimes she sinks into lyrical repetition. Most of the time it works because she changes how she repeats a lyric vocally, but in the song "God Help Me", the repeated "God Help Me" is barely changed at all...and it is repeated almost endlessly for well over a minute without much change in the sound of her voice or the instruments.

As stated earlier, Emilie owes alot to her predessors, but she belongs among them for taking bits and throwing in stuff of her own for something startling fresh and new.

VERY highly reccomended
