Biography

Seeing the world is an eye-opening experience—especially if you grew up in the tiny town of Draper, Utah—so it’s no wonder Meg & Dia’s new album, Here, Here and Here, paints a portrait of what life has been like for this hard-working band as they’ve toured for the past two and a half years in support of their 2006 debut album Something Real (which spawned the ...

I kept listening to their songs over and over on myspace, so I had to have the CD.
Lindsey Coddington
This album does not have a bad song at all --and if some of the songs are weaker than others, it's still decent... but overall, the album is fantastic!
Patrick
The lyrics, vocals, and music is all very tasteful to the mood of the song and is never overdone.

I heard Nineteen Stars prior to buying this, it must've been the acoustic version because there was no electric guitars or anything in the version I'd heard. So, naturally, I figured the entire record would follow suit. Nope. As Monster began I was left thinking "Holy (expletive)". Simply put, Meg & Dia can rock with the best of them without compromising their strong vocals. One record into their career and they've already outdone the vast majority of female-fronted bands, that in itself is an accomplishment.

Something Real was actually in my recomendations here on Amazon and the reviews, for the most part, made this sound like the CD to buy. There's no shred of regret in my eyes after hearing it fully more than a few times. The lyrics, vocals, and music is all very tasteful to the mood of the song and is never overdone. The lyrics are particularly great, as seen in songs such as Monster, Tell Mary, Masterpiece, and Getaways Turned Holidays. The vocals have the perfect blending of power and vulnerability. And the music is fairly ambitious, as evidenced is songs like Monster, Indiana, and Nineteen Stars.

Monster seems to be the most popular song featured as it gets talked about the most and it's all well deserved. It's a perfect introduction to the overall sound that Meg & Dia sport and the lyrics are pretty eery. Tell Mary's vocals shine the most to me, especially in the chorus. The lyrics tell a pretty good story of relationships as well. Masterpiece has some pretty scathing lyrics that end up being the true highlight of the CD. Gripping vocals and driving guitars help out too. Nineteen Stars was my introduction to the ladies so it remains one of my favorites. The music in the verses seems a bit out of place but doesn't hurt the song too much.

This is an amazing CD. I am amazed that they are not more famous, they are like Avril but better. They do have a lot of pop influences but I would consider them much better than any pop group right now. Standout tracks in my opinion are Monster, Tell Mary, Indiana, and Masterpiece but the whole CD is great.

Update:
I saw them live some time ago and they are amazing. They look completely different than they do on the CD cover but they still looked good. However there looks were overshadowed by there talent. They even stayed after to sign autographs.

Update Again:
I saw them for the second time, this time at a good venue and again they were good even though Meg lost her voice and couldn't sing. This time I got to meet them because after there act they stayed after to greet there fans. In my opinion any decent band who would do that is worth my devotion.

1.Monster-5/5: Deffintely the best track of the album. I like everything about it, wouldn't change the a thing.

2.Roses-4.5/5: This a really good song that I think EVERYONE can relate to.

3.Tell Mary-5/5: The second best track. I absoulutely LOVE the lyrics and chorus. ''Your gonna leave her tonight...''

4.Indiana-3.5/5: Good song. Not much to say about it though.

5.Masterpiece-4.5/5: I really like this song, especially the lyrics.

6.Rebecca-1/1: Really slow song, not really good, weak chours.

7.Nineteen Stars-4/5: Deffinetly makes up for Rebecca. Awesome song!

8.Cardigan Weather-2.5/5: Another slow song, but a little bit better than Rebecca. I love the ending.

9.Getaways Turned Holidays-4/5: Good song, I kind of like the chorus, but not really catchy.

10.Courage,Robert-5/5: The 3rd best song on the album. I love it!

11.Setting up sunday-3.5/3: I think the last song should of been just a little bit better, but it's still a good song.

I would deffinetly recomend for fans who like Aly and Aj. Though, Meg and Dia's lyrics are a little bit ''out there'' kind of.

I was introduced to these girls when I heard the songs Roses on a TV Channel that was on. I realized that they were on the list for 2007 warped tour but did not take the time to go see the performance. However my liking for this turned when I had heard the song Monster, after that I had gone to listen to 30 second previews of the album. That was it I had fallen in love with the album.

I bought the album and later went to go see them when they were on tour with Angels & Airwaves. I am not to fond of very many girl singers, however Dia's voice is so powerful, beautiful and Flawless that it is not possible to improve it (but she still does). Meg is one of the best Rhythm Guitarists out there. Nick also makes an awesome Drummer.

When you put this CD in it is almost as if the first song on the Record Monster puts you in a trance the soft but sweet melody of the songs roses continues to keep you listening, The entire album is simply amazing. what is awesome about how it is written is you can almost relate to every song. I recommend this album to anybody who likes groups like, Paramore, Boys Like Girls and The Rocket Summer. When they Release the 2008 follow up it will definately be amazing I am looking foward to see what these women and there band can do in the future.
