Lost & Found is the best song Ellie has done in my opinion.

I've never been a huge fan of her's but this is magic. That stomping beat, the tender lyrics, the folky element, the HEYs. I agree with what someone else wrote, how it sounds like early to late 2000s Max. Something he might've done with Luke.

I actually don't care much for the production, but the vocal production is great. The choir like BGVs really enhance Ellie's leads in the chorus. It sounds amazing, just like in the late 90s. That's what grabbed my ear.

Normally if I listen to that kind of production with a so-so song, I move on. But this song is great melodically.

Post by: turnaround on October 24, 2015, 09:06:23 PM
Do you think this might be the Kristian Lundin production?

Edit. It says it's by Max.

The track begins as a swaying guitar-led piece of pop, before bursting into a sky-reaching chorus produced by Max Martin (Britney Spears, Taylor Swift).

I feel it has a lot of Kristian Lundin in it, it's really pretty and poppy. But then again, it's what Max used to sound like too back in the day. I'm not sure Max came up with the entire top line, but the harmonies is definitely all him. He's the harmonies master.

The verses sounds a lot like Ellie's first songs.
The drums sound like Kristian Lundin's, but it's Carl Falk.

It grabbed my attention that the first part of the chorus is like a prechorus.
And the instrumental pre-chorus that connects the first and second part of the verses and appears again as a middle 8.

I agree the BGV's and vocal production makes the song interesting... many Max Martin tricks all over the song: it reminds me of a lot of the songs in his catalogue.

HEY!

Well, the Abbey Road version is exquisite, no doubt about it-- the resonance in her voice on those "yeah -eh-eh -eahs" in particular. But I like the production on the other one too, especially for the sheer power when it really kicks into high gear :-)

Are you kidding, right?
She's an amazing singer, full control over her voice, lots of control over the melismas, a nice range.
Don't let her tone fool you. Seems like she's nothing special, but her voice is a position.. and have control over a non natural voice requires a lot of work.

I wonder if Taylor was the one who suggested Ellie about working with Max...

If that's what you hear and see as being amazing then we should agree to disagree.

Max has always been working with vocally mediocre singers, it's like he intentionally chooses them to go with the type of his music.

Christina Aguilera and Leona were probably his best, but then I guess they went to him for hits not that they were his type. I was going to say Demi but unfortunately he turned her into Katy in his songs to the extent where she lost her amazing range.

Post by: AlexanderLaBrea on November 03, 2015, 10:30:35 PM
What? I mean if you don't see Ellie as a "good singer", then obviously most of the singers he's worked with can be regarded as mediocre. Allthough, I mean, from a purely objective point of view - you're wrong. Ellie has a weird tone in her voice that may be pleasing to some and irritating to some, put as far as vocal technique, range and so forth, yeah, she's pretty amazing.

Looking at Max's career, he's been working mostly with great singers. Counting the mediocre ones can be done on one hand... Britney obviously, Vanessa Hudgens, Miranda Cosgrove may not be the strongest singer, Becky G.

Out of the Top 40-type vocalists during the 2000's that have been noted for their amazing vocal abilities, Max have worked with pretty much most of them (a lot at least) except maybe Mariah Carey.

Well, Britney may not be the strongest voice but she's not about her vocals.

And Ellie, she's amazing. Love her tone and the acrobatics.

Don't Need Nobody premiered on Beats 1.

Post by: melodicmoonlight on November 08, 2015, 05:05:09 AM
nothing amazing on this album for me. Lost & Found and Army are the standout songs. (and Love Me Like You Do lol. stands out even after having heard it dozens of times.) then Devotion (those Klas pitch modulations) and Codes. everything else ranges from ok but uninteresting with no real hook, to just throwaway electro-pop tracks with stale production we've heard before.

sort of a let down, since there are over 20 tracks on this album, and i was expecting more of Max's stamp on it. more melody. the guitar sound works for her; a la Lost & Found. i'm afraid i don't "get" Ellie. like who she is as an artist. vocal production is also weak. what happened to her little vibratos and weird vocal stuff - and in terms of lyrical content, i just don't get really what she's singing about. it doesn't register as genuine or innovative to me. oh well.

Post by: j.fco.morales on November 08, 2015, 09:32:37 PM
Too many songs, I agree. You get rired of listening.

I think the thing with Ellie is that she's still in the process of finding her sound and style. She's trying everything: pop, trap, synthpop, acoustic pop songs.
Sonically is cohesive, but there's a lack of  artistic direction, she's pointing everywhere.
To me, this is like a bunch of songs she wrote with different collaborators. A bit bland.

I'd suggest to write with just one collaborator. Probably Greg Kurstin.

So wiki had the wrong information..

I fully agree with j.fco. morales.

Too many fillers, with a few really great song. They could have compiled one really amazing normal album and add all the mediocre songs to the deluxe....

Nobody is talking about it, but I think Codes is a really really amazing song in the album. Max Martin is an incredible guy.

The other day I was talking with a guy about make the songs sound good live, when they're so sound designed.
This is an example.

I love Codes so much! and of course Lost and Found. Overall I really like the album, but yes, there is some filler in there, but most albums have filler.

I love "On My Mind" so much now. So many hooks.  The "you think you know somebody" additions from the 2nd chorus on are classic. And my favourite part is the last chorus - the AAAHAHHHHHHs. Such a precise and accomplished jam.

Quote
“Love Me Like You Do” was for Fifty Shades of Grey, yeah, but it was that song that really got me working with Max and his team of people. I went down to his studio one day to record and we struck up a friendship — that is why I went back in to record “On My Mind.” Then I actually ended up staying there… probably outstayed my welcome.

Working with Max Martin is amazing — we get on really well and the best thing about making music is that you can work with someone you genuinely love spending time with. So that is good. You get to feel confident and safe with someone, trusting someone, that it is going to be worthwhile. We have made some really amazing songs together, but I think “Army” is probably my favorite. It goes back to my roots, with my guitar. Also I just love writing a good ballad.

Lost and found is probably my favorite song on the album. I think you can definitely hear a lot of Kristian Lundin in it. First time I heard it, the melodies made me think of Celine Dion.

I absolutely agree.
I like Devotion and Don't Panic a lot but I don't see it as singles.

When you’re working with Max Martin, how do you know he’s giving you the good stuff?

— He’s very intuitive. I think he really believes in me; I don’t think he has the same experience with every artist he works with. We became good friends.

He gave me a song he wrote for Fleetwood Mac — Lost And Found. He was going to start a band with Mick Fleetwood, and that song was for that.

who is credited in Lost and Found too?

It was February 2015 and Delirium was released in November.
Was he a singer in that band with Fleetwood?

Carl Falk plays the song, which is so far an advanced sketch. He has written it together with Jocke Berg, and it's the Kentsinger who sings on the demo.

- Now the idea is to send it to Max Martin, who will write a chorus. We shall see how it goes. I've been working with Jocke earlier, but things have not happened so much, but now it feels like this Fleetwood-Mac-thing can actually work.
