Dancer, violinist, Manga and dubstep enthusiast, composer, performance artist, America's Got Talent contestant, and Elder Scrolls-loving internet celebrity, Salt Lake City, Utah native Lindsey Stirling is the Faerie Queen of millennial new age music, and her sophomore studio album, the 12-track, largely conceptual Shatter Me, offers up a spirited set of high-octane classical crossover confections that occupy the barbed wire and flower petal strewn middle ground between Evanescence, Riverdance, Skrillex, and Narnia. Like her 2013 debut, Shatter Me is essentially a showcase for Stirling's instrumental prowess, and she delivers the heat with all of the fire, fury, and mad, pixie-ish sweetness that drew millions of people to her Lindseystomp YouTube channel, especially on standouts like "Beyond the Veil," "Master of Tides," and "Roundtable Rival," which weave sharp, confident melodies over a backdrop of glitch-heavy, yet largely conventional slabs of radio-ready electro-pop. She applies that same formula to the two non-instrumental tracks as well, both of which revolve (lyrically) around the album cover, which finds Stirling encased in a cracked crystal ball, and features Halestorm vocalist Lizzy Hale ("Shatter Me") and Meg & Dia lead singer Dia Frampton ("We Are Giants") giving the Auto-Tune processor a full eight-hour day.

Shatter Me based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
The LP only plays on a 45 speed and is extremely warbly/low quality. I am so disappointed as her music is beautiful.
Full of high energy. Infectious. Heard it one night at a B&N store in Broward County. Had to buy it. Caused me to go follow-up. Found and when out bought her first album. If her music does not get you bouncy, I don't know what will.
I’m well aware that I’m extremely late to the music community that has most likely listened to Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling for quite some time (in addition to hearing about some family members who like her music). Anyhow, I’m now curious to hear more music from the electronica-classical genre after getting a chance to listen to Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling. This is great music for writing, hanging out at your apartment, and/or if you just want to hear melodic music that lifts your spirits. I enjoy the tunes Shatter Me feat. Lizzy Hale (of Halestorm), Beyond The Veil, Take Flight, V-pop, and We Are Giants (feat. Dia Frampton) the most on the Shatter Me collection. However, there are other songs in this collection that are also pleasant to listen to and perfect for eclectic music lovers open to hearing music that combines violins with the fusion of classical and electronic music.
