Lindsey Stirling's unique dub-step approach to playing the violin just keeps getting better. Before exploring her latest release, however, I'd like to make a couple of observations that may help anyone new to her music. Stirling's music appeals to people across the generational divides. As a MS Reading teacher, I often use video bellringers between stories, and many of these are music videos. I also almost always play music during tests. Stirling's "Moon Trance" was voted by my kids as their favorite video. (Full disclosure: when it comes to seventh graders, it is hard to beat flesh-eating zombies who can flat out dance.) Her "Electric Daisy Violin" was voted second favorite song (just behind Passenger's "Let Her Go"). The really cool part of all this, however, is that kids take their discoveries home with them. I have received several notes from parents thanking me for introducing them to Stirling (and to a lesser extent, The Piano Guys, 2Cellos and some others). Best yet, my principal has received positive notes about my class, and they all mention the use of music. Thanks, Lindsey! (And others.)

If you are new to Stirling, I must tell you her music is very hard to categorize. As a matter of fact, I think we are on the cusp of a new genre. In addition to Stirling, we have The Piano Guys, David Garrett, Bond, Vanessa Mae, 2Cellos, and others producing music that doesn't readily fit into any current node. I don't know what to call it, but I think the geniuses out there need to come up with a name. Characteristics? Vibrant uses of tempo, new, provocative use of chords, novel use of pizzicato, ingenius inclusion of instrumental percussion (i.e., using string, etc., instruments instead of traditional percussion), and lots of other stuff I have never heard. I think you will like it.

After the success of Lindsey Stirling's eponymous debut album, which was a heavily replayable collection of catchy, happy songs, the question many will have is "can she do it again?" Will the second album improve upon greatness, or was the bar set too high? Will a second album of dubstep violin music have the same magic?

Shatter Me, in my opinion, breaks all expectations. Early video releases of "Beyond the Veil" and "Shatter Me" were the first signs that Lindsey's music had leveled up, and after hearing the full album multiple times I can assure that those singles are just the iceberg's tip. The songs are fresh, and while the musical composition has matured, they are filled with the same upbeat energy that we're used to seeing and hearing in all of her music and videos. This is a superb sequel. Every song is new, original, and so darn catchy! You will bounce in your seat and you will get up and dance. This is happy music, motivational music, music to make you feel good. You will play this over, and over, and over.

After a long wait the question has been answered, high hopes exceeded! Was it ever in doubt? Shatter Me is yet another testament to Lindsey Stirling's inspiring artistry. Starting with Youtube and now taking the world by storm, she has single-handedly carved out a niche in the crowded land of popular music. Far from a one-hit wonder, it's clear that this dancing violinist is here to stay.

The first song that hooks me up with Lindsey Stirling’s style was Shadow from her first CD. Didn’t know who was her so I started looking for more of her work, what a pleasant surprise every time I hear something new from her.
I join her Pledge program, and I got all the news and little advantage for the pledgers like she signing the CD artwork, and an extra song.

Yesterday night, I got her latest CD, it is such a good piece of art, her dub-step violin sync is fantastic in Beyond the veil and Roundtable Rival, I just can’t stop listen those two. She completely grows up more in this CD.

The two featuring artist are great, totally amazing by Lzzy Hale and Dia Frampton. I definitely recommend this album, and I will be waiting for more of her YouTube videos. I hope the next video she made would be for Roundtable Rival since it is my favorite from this CD.

I just wish her creativity; joy and love continue growing, since you can feel it and see it on her work and performance. Great Album, Lindsey. Congratulation.

Although my tastes in music are very eclectic, I never in a million years would have thought that I would like a CD with violin music as much as this one. But the pixie-like Lindsey Stirling, who has created a music-genre all here own that consists of a fusion of classical, dub step, Celtic folk, dance, pop and rock, has turned me into a devoted fan with “Shatter Me.” It’s the second album by this violin-virtuoso, and on this one she spreads her wings by including guest vocalists on two tracks.

Album opener “Beyond The Veil” is simply amazing, with its haunting melody and triumphant chorus amidst some electronic embellishments. “Mirror Haus” has gorgeous violin sounds mixed with dance beats, as does the even more high-energy violin pop of “V-Pop,” before we come to the outstanding rocker “Shatter Me,” my absolute favorite on this CD. While the lyrics are written by Lindsey, they are given voice by Lizzy Hale from hard-rock band Halestorm. It’s her powerhouse-vocals who give expression to the song's topic of wanting to break free: “Somebody shine a light, I’m frozen by the fear in me, Somebody make me feel alive, And shatter me.”

The fast-paced "Heist” has a slightly edgier, darker feel to it. Then we get to "Roundtable Rival," on which she goes for something completely different. While it has elements of an Irish fiddle number, it soon edges into symphonic metal territory with its guitar riffs and the back and forth between the violin and electric guitar. The upbeat “Night Vision” is a more electronic dance track, with some shades of Michael Jackson. On the uplifting “Take Flight,” the violin twists and swirls through electronics and a thumping bass like a soaring bird.

Next is the uplifting “Ascendance,” a film-score ready soundtrack.
