Emilie Autumn - Opheliac: The Deluxe Edition Cover

The thin line between damaged artist and commercial cynic is continually blurred...

Splitting the affections of the scene’s spookykids as effortlessly as an old jar of Marmite, this enfant terrible brings her predilection for corsets and old world theatrics to her so-called victoriandustrial floorshow. Such is the emotional heft Autumn wields that many a sentimental goth can be found weeping into their glasses of absinthe over her tortured vignettes. But, alas, young Emilie has so successfully marketed herself as a commercial entity that the thin line between damaged artist and commercial cynic is continually blurred, not helped when almost all the bonus material consists of shonky remixes and a selection of live and spoken word affairs.
