This is my 500th review! Probably should have used this on something big..... Eh, this is related to Titanic Rising. Good Enough!

Titanic Rising remains my favorite album of the year, in fact I'm listening to it right now! I'm dedicated to this Titanic Rising lifestyle. So when I heard there was some alternate versions, I was excited. And for the most part they're pretty alright! But like, nothing better than the original. A Lot Has Changed adds new instrumentation and this "Plantasia ... read more


These stripped back versions of Titanic Rising songs offer another way to appreciate their beauty. The lush arrangements you're used to have been turned into simple pianos melodies. By turning it into something smaller, these versions allow Natalie Mering's voice and lyrics to shine brighter than before.

Well I went into it knowing I was going to like it, and I really really liked it! The version of Something to Believe here is downright heavenly, it might even be more powerful and moving than the already great studio version.

If you liked Titanic Rising, you really can't not vibe with this.

There are no new songs, with the exception of the instrumental intro “A Lot Has Changed”, it’s not very essential, ... read more


This was a nice, but short-EP. It has great vocals, nice lyricism, and the more folky instrumentals work really well with said vocals. There's pretty good song progression and layering on here, and it's overall enjoyable. No huge critiques for this project, but it's hard to be very passionate about something when it's so short. It's good, but it doesn't hang around long enough for me to be super passionate about it. It also doesn't help that I haven't heard Titanic Rising, or this would ... read more
