Excellent album: Extraordinary Live-Show


I saw these ladies last year on a whim in Nashville and was completely blown away by how good they are live. I immediately bought two of their albums (including this one) and can safely say that they sound just as good live as they do recorded. Try to catch them if at all possible! This album is great also!

A Must Have!


I tried to resist getting the whole album because I don't have much between now and the next month. But the more I struggled between various tracks, I realized I couldn't just download 1 or 2. This album is a lot richer in tone than their previous album. There's a lot more risk and subtle changed between mix between synthesized overlays and their ethereal voices. The track, "Anywhere You Looked" is infectious and just upbeat. It's hard to stay in a sullen mood with that song. Then there's other tracks which have a different tone like, "We Are Here", and "Shadow". I give this album 5 stars! All of the songs are great, and plenty of them easily can be kept on loop :)

If you love soft female vocals . .


When I first heard Shadows I freaked and immediately found ARS on Emusic. I have purchased all their albums and enjoy them immensely. If you enjoy Hope Sandoval or music from Juno then you'll fall in love with ARS just like I did. You can enjoy a few songs here and there but going for the album and listening straight through is the best way.

Melodic & catchy


I like them since their first album, download 2 & 8 if you don't have enough otherwise go for the complete album

Melodic, lilting vox atop gently sick beats


For fans of melody, vintage synths, pretty female vocals, electronic beats, and stubbornly unpredictable songcraft. Ray Lynch + Postal Service + Joni Mitchell = A.R.S.

The best so far...


Nice, gentle, melancholic music...

The Politic Melodic: A Campaign Song History

By Yancey Strickler, Contributor

In ways that grow more important by the day, the 1972 presidential contest between incumbent Republican Richard Nixon and Democrat George McGovern has dictated the tone, style and execution of every election since. It birthed the modern-day primary format; it defined and honed the press 'approach to all political coverage; it featured the most effective use of the presidency itself as a campaign asset; and, finally, even in defeat, McGovern's campaign dramatically shifted every campaign's… more »

They Say All Music Guide

On their third album, Still Night, Still Light, the dreamy trio Au Revoir Simone don’t do anything too differently than they did on their previous release, Bird of Music. The basic structure of the sound (vintage synths/keyboards and drum machines) and voices (winsome leads and rich harmonies) is firmly in place. The palpable feeling of introspection and melancholy is still there, the gentleness of the melodies and sweetness of tone is present also. What has changed is that they seem to crank the melancholy and sadness up just a touch; there are no songs as bright and lovestruck as “Stars” here. Even the uptempo songs with cheerful-sounding melodies like “Anywhere You Looked” and “All or Nothing” have heartbreakingly bleak lyrics. That’s not to say the album itself is bleak by any means. The warmth that the group wrings out of its keyboards is enough to dry up the tears, and the fuzzy blanket of sound producer Thom Monahan wraps their sound in gives you a strangely peaceful feeling that makes the sadness seem OK. It also helps that they keep things interesting sonically by changing up their sound throughout the album, with the disco sheen of “Another Likely Story,” the unlikely junkshop glitter groove of “Only You Can Make You Happy,” the motorik groove of “Shadows,” and the doomy synth pop of “Organized Scenery” being most impressive. The straight-ahead ballads like “We Are Here” and “The Last One” are made better by the wide range of sounds that surround them. Thanks to Monahan and the strength of the songs the trio wrote for the album, this stands as Au Revoir Simone’s best work so far. – Tim Sendra
