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.

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.

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".

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.

If you are tired of an artist sounding the same on every song, this one is for you. What a great variety!

When “Wake Me Up” kicks off the first full-length album TRUE (2013) from Swedish DJ Avicii (Tim Bergling), you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stumbled on a Mumford & Sons record. Propulsive acoustic guitars and folky vocals do not often an EDM hit make. By about a minute-and-a-half, however, when the beat drops, you’re in for one of 2013′s most surprising hits.

TRUE is full of such surprising moments, as Avicii builds these tracks around more traditional song structures from a myriad of genres. “Hey Brother” continues the Mumford-meets-EDM sound; “Lay Me Down” uses disco as its groundwork; “Shame On Me” brings to mind classic swing a la Brian Setzer & the Stray Cats; “Addicted to You” echoes Adele. That’s only how they start, however; when Bergling’s soaring synth leads take over, we’re launched headlong into gloriously tuneful electro house. TRUE plays almost like an album of killer remixes, except that these dozen songs are all originals.

On its own, each track is a real treat. When you listen to the album as a whole, things get a touch repetitive. Not due to a lack of stylistic diversity, certainly, or to a lack of dancefloor hooks. Perhaps it’s the fact that, once you understand Avicii’s M.O. here, you have a solid sense of where each subsequent track is headed (structurally at least), a sense that’s only challenged when the instrumentals “Heart Upon My Sleeve” and “Canyons” appear toward the end of the record. Or perhaps it’s the fact that, despite each song’s uniqueness, they’re all built around the same ~125 bpm house beat.

However, this need not be a criticism if you understand Avicii’s context. I find that EDM doesn’t always lend itself to full albums that you sit down and listen to intently all the way through. These are songs for dancing, for dropping into a DJ’s playlist. And in that context, they’re a TRUE breath of fresh air.
