YMMV / Halestorm

  • Ear Worm: "I Miss the Misery", "It's Not You", "Love Bites (So Do I)", "Here's to Us", "Freak Like Me", "Amen", "Mayhem"
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Arejay. Even most of the people who hate the band like him.
  • Face of the Band: Lzzy; they actually try averting this in interviews and music videos, with each member getting a chance to show off or talk, but she's still the one that gets featured on other bands songs and such.
  • Internet Backdraft: Their Grammy win for some people. While it's certainly understandable why some people might be pissed about it, the backlash included death threats and some truly vile misogyny.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Halestorm is a technically proficient album but a lot of the songs sound the same: there's only so many times you can reuse the "I'm a bad girl" theme. The Strange Case of... is much more varied both musically and thematically and Lzzy Hale shows off a more musical, less screamy side of her singing voice on several tunes. Apparently the Recording Academy agreed.
