In my opinion, I would like more choir and more of the industrial and experimental feel that Origin had. I love Origin and love how raw if felt with all the instruments and layers. I'm not saying that Ev3 didn't have layers, because it did! Musically, the best album was TOD, then Origin. I just loved the experimentation on Origin and in TOD and I would like to see that again, with more choir, and as most have said, more solos/instrumental breaks.
I agree! TOD is my favorite album of all time! Never stop discovering new layers and things when I listen to it. That style with more "jam"-like instrumental breaks would be beautiful beyond belief!

Apart from the music experimentation that i'd like Ev (or Amy on a solo album) to try, i'd also like Amy to experiment a bit with her voice. I've talked a bit about this on the "songs you'd like to see Ev cover" thread. Are you familiar with Regina Spektor? I'd like Amy to take inspiration from certain little things that Regina does with her voice. Like for example in "Prisoners" she pronounces "break" with a non-American accent, in "Apres Moi" she does a weird "ukh" throat sound, in "open" she gasps for air on purpose, or in "back of a truck" she does the "it's m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-miiinne". Just little things that would catch listeners with their guard down and make a song more interesting all of a sudden. Just in a couple of non-single songs, something for the fans, overusing it would be a bad idea.
Did not know where else to post this. I talked before that I would like to see Regina and Amy collaborate, and I came across this interview with Regina and some of her answers reminded me of Amy so much, they sound like things Amy would say, the part about dealing with motherhood and songwriting, the process of writing music and that last bit at the end about wanting to make classical music but don't really having it in her. I think they would make an awesome collaboration together.
