Audra comes back with a 3rd full length and this after a break of several years. The fans of the Projekt label will for sure remember their debut-cd "Audra" that was released in 2000 plus "Going To The Theatre" released in 2002. After 2 albums Audra left Projekt. "Everything Changes" sounds like a statement. Time went on and things are changing. The sound of Audra evolves as well and will surprise many people with some delicate wave-pop inspired pieces. Bret Helm and Bart Helm both remain the main composers of this album. "Everything Changes" comes quite close to the softer songs of Placebo. "I Just Can't Let Go" is quite Placebo-like and that's a real reference. The main songs of this new album are quiet while flavored with some melancholia. With "Silver Music" they even composed a pure ballad with Bret Helm on vocals and Bart Helm playing piano. It's a sensitive song and quite representative for the mood of this release. The best song is however a bit heavier. "Ocean" is a damn efficient cut featuring outstanding guitar parts while the chorus is carrying and pleasant. I also want to mention the very last song entitled "Syd Barrett for the particular lyrical content, which isn't dealing with Syd Barrett at all. "Everything Changes" is a kind of come back for Audra and I just hope that this band will not enter into hibernation again! 10 killer tracks!
