Emilie Autumn - Liar/Dead Is the New Alive (2007) Retail CD
This was the last CD I purchased from Emilie Autumn as the two songs were not the most special ones from the album 'Opheliac'. Due to the extra tracks, though, I gave it a go, expecting the same quality that came with the second disc of 'Opheliac'. This is probably her weakest release. Remixes are never great at the best of times. Whilst some of the remixes create a different atmosphere, I sincerely doubt anyone preferring them to the originals.
There are four original tracks not found on other albums - they are not of the quality you found on the second disc of 'Opheliac'. 'Mad Girl'more… is quite nice, and probably the best track on the album, it has a similar tempo to 'Thank God I'm Pretty' and the same kind of style, though 'Mad Girl' is less tongue in cheek. 'Best Safety Lies In Fear' is like a part two of '306'. It's mostly a jumping record of somebody saying 'If he says he loves you' and 'Best safety lies in fear' with a brooding background. 'In The Lake' and 'Let It Die' are live recordings and the production isn't great. They are of low quality in general, the first is repetitive to the point of irritation about a girl that has been buried behind someone's else in a lake. Typical Emilie topic, but not typical production wizardry, it being down to just her voice and one instrument (either acoustic guitar or Mandolin). 'Let It Die' sounds a lot like the other live performance.
Also on this disc is a preview to Emilie's latest album (which is out now) - an electric violin instrumental called 'Unlaced' which used to be a primary reason to get this EP, but now that the other album is being released this EP may not be worth it. Do you remember 'Thank God I'm Pretty' from disc two of 'Opheliac'? She has put a cover version of it on here from an artist called 'Spiritual Front'. If that means something to you, great, if not, it sounds like the song is being sung by Leonard Cohen. The version is quite interesting, but lacks the humour and irony that Emilie provided. Plus, it's a bit strange for a man to sing such a song clearly written from a woman's perspective (do men smack other men's arses?).
There is no tracklisting to this EP on here, so here it is:
1. Liar (Album Version)
2. Dead Is The New Alive (Album Version)
3. Mad Girl
4. Best Safety Lies In Fear
5. In The Lake
6. Let It Die
7. Liar (Murder Mix by Brendon Small)
8. Liar (Manic Depressive Mix by ASP)
9. Liar (Machine Mix by Dope Stars Inc.)
10. Liar (Medical Mix by Angelspit)
11. Dead Is The New Alive (Velvet Acid Christ Club Mix)
12. Dead Is The New Alive (Manipulartor Mix by Dope Stars Inc.)
13. Thank God I'm Pretty (Cover by Spiritual Front)
Bearing in mind, this EP is full of forgettable remixes and only four tracks you will find nowhere else, it is questionable if you should invest your money in this (which are quite weak). There is not much to take from this album but to complete a fans collection. I think this EP is more for the die-hard fans. Try to hear some previews before committing to this.
