YMMV / Lindsey Stirling

  • Awesome Music: Many, but Song of the Caged Bird, Shatter Me, and Crystallize are the big ones.
  • Counterpart Comparison/Spiritual Successor: Some have compared Lindsey with Vanessa Mae, a British violinist who was famous for mixing classical music with Electronic Music during the late 1990s.
  • Europeans Love Lindsey Stirling: She's a hit in the US, but she has a huge European following, with the turnout for concerts in Germany and Switzerland often numbering in the thousands.
  • Narm: Some of the themed videos can seem silly with the Facial Dialogue, and the dancing doesn't always work. For example: Pokemon, Zelda, and Game of Thrones.
  • Narm Charm: The music video for Stars Align is pretty hard to take seriously. Which makes it work. Same goes for Roundtable Rival.
  • Painful Rhyme: "I'm scared of changin', the days stay the same / The world is spinning, but only in gray..."
  • Stunt Double: She has a $40 violin used for scenes in rain, rolling in dirt, etc.; as a good violin costs thousands, this saves it from getting ruined.
  • Tough Act to Follow: Some fans feel this way about Shatter Me compared to her first album, although the eponymous song was very well-received.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome:
    • Just Dance 4. You'd be forgiven for thinking it was actually video game footage at first glance.
    • The music videos by Everdream. Especially the blurring camera lens and falling snow in Shatter Me.
      • The music video for Take Flight is stunning, flowing from dreamscape to dreamscape.
    • The practical water, fire, and lighting effects used in the official video for "Master of Tides" definitely qualify.
    • The Prism music video, with the five Vio Lindseys' all at once on a neon backdrop.
  • The Woobie: Long before her days of YouTube stardom, Lindsey battled depression and anorexia. Watch this video and you'll see just how far she's come to be what she is today.
