Biography

Cleverly using dance music blogs as the platform to launch his career, Tim Berg, aka Avicii, has since become one of the most prominent producers on the burgeoning Swedish house scene. Born in Stockholm in 1989, Berg only started making music at the age of 18, writing and remixing tracks in his bedroom and then leaking them onto various blogs. Influenced by Daft Punk and Steve Angello, his ... Read more in Amazon's Avicii Store

5.0 out of 5 stars True Avicii September 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If somebody would've told me a year ago that Avicii makes different kind of music other than progressive house, I would've mocked them. Not so anymore. This album is a great surprise for me as an Electronica fan. Evidently, the artist took time to create a melange of different kinds of music along with typical Swedish House beats. Songs such as "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother" or "Lay Me Down" are products of influence that country and disco music holds in artist's mind. So let's break it down track-by-track.
1. "Wake Me Up" - album's hit. Nothing much to add. Starts with guitar sounds and slowly progresses to the climax.
2. "You Make Me" - bass and piano. Kind of indie.
3. "Hey Brother" - very country-like song. Similar in style with the first track.
4. "Addicted to You" - sung by Audra Mae. Song goes by without any major breaks or progressions.
5. "Dear Boy" - If you liked "I Could Be The One" by Avicii vs. Nicky Romero, you'll like it too, since it's very similar.
6. "Liar Liar" - nothing like Avicii at all. Very chilled version comparing to "Tomorrowland Version", so if you expect major breaks and bass attack, that's not it.
7. "Shame on Me" - back to his style. Starts with percussion and slowly prepares you for whatever-big-is-coming.
8. "Lay Me Down" - disco is back in town. I was surprised to hear this song mixed with house-like beats, yet to realize it's still disco.
9. "Hope There's Someone" - you have to wait long before this song really reveals itself. Very beautifully sung by Linea Henriksson.
10. "Heart Upon My Sleeve" - another song that keeps switching from country to orchestra-like music, yet without lyrics, which makes it the only song that has no lyrics in this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great First Studio Album! September 17, 2013
By Mike H.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Top Three Songs:
- Wake Me Up (feat. Aloe Blacc)
- Shame on Me (feat. Audra Mae, Sterling Fox, & Nile Rodgers)
- Lay Me Down (feat. Adam Lambert & Nile Rodgers)

I thought I saw it all when I heard of the metal band Korn working with artists like Kill the Noise, Skrillex, and Noisa to make The Path of Totality (2011), a mix of metal and dubstep (or whatever you experts want to call it).Well I was wrong because here comes house producer, Avicii, with this first studio album True (2013) mixing a genre that I thought I would never hear mixed with EDM (at least too well with); country. We got a taste of this country/EDM mix back in Ultra Music Festival in 2013 when he played an acoustic set with some of the artists of the album. It got really mixed reviews with the fans, they were at first confused with the new set and sound that they were hearing, but later on Avicii was praised for experimenting with country music along with other genres. And to say the least that he isn't just experimenting with country music like everyone thinks, he also was able to throw in some pop, disco, R&B, soul, rock, and funk with his own house sound. So now comes the question: Is the album a hit or a failure?

Of course we start off with the first single of the album "Wake Me Up" with Aloe Blacc providing outstanding vocals and inspiring lyrics. This is one of the songs that follow that country sound with its square-dancing like beats and guitar along with a synth you can tell that Avicii clearly made. "You Make Me" is a more soul/pop like song, with a piano that stands out and vocals from Salem Al Fakir that also makes the song.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not exactly the album September 21, 2013
By Isaac
Format:MP3 Music
First of all, this isn't the complete album, which is why I ended up scrambling for my iTunes account, this is missing "Long Road To Hell" (personal favorite) and "Edom" (not exactly my best choice), other than that, I felt it was a shame that Avicii removed the lyrics from "Heart Upon My Sleeve", and re-did the vocals for "Dear Boy".

By dusdob
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Avicii album True is very different music then I usually listen too. The digital electronics was amazing and the different styles make the songs unique. The different artists also make the album unique. I especially like the song "Lay Me Down" .The vocals are amazing in that song. I completely enjoyed this album.
