Waiting for Love
Where there's a will, there's a way, kind of beautiful And every night has its day, so magical And if there's love in this life, there's no... See the rest of the song lyrics

    The pleasing, alive, and diverse Stories is a fine reason to think of Avicii as a producer of attractive music, with EDM, pop, and all other genres on a sliding scale.

    Stories drags a bit at the end, the low point being a reggae-lite track starring former Fugee Wyclef Jean and the fusion-minded Matisyahu, but when it hits, it hits big.

    As on True, the nondance tracks are more or less power ballads, albeit with fairly pallid vocals.... The dance tracks are actually where most of this album’s pleasant surprises lie.

    Too bad Stories brings so little to the EDM conversation.

    Really a fantastic album. Using the Grand Piano as his weapon of choice, Avicii really knocked it out of the park with this collection. ThereReally a fantastic album. Using the Grand Piano as his weapon of choice, Avicii really knocked it out of the park with this collection. There are a few low points for me in the album that lowered the score a bit. For example Broken Arrows, which seems to be the favorite of many, I found to be repetitive and almost cheesy. It will easily be lost within the next few years and is not really that memorable. However, tracks like For A better Day and City Lights bring something new and refreshing to the table. Certainly a style which I hope Avicii returns to with his next project. Expand

    Meh, it's okay, I guess. I will admit For A Better Day is quite interesting.
