Background and reception[edit]

Over six years since Alyson Avenue released their second album, the band was able to re-emerge with a new sound and vocalist. After Anette Olzon left after becoming the new singer for Nightwish, Alyson Avenue had been searching for a new vocalist since 2007, until they announced Swedish singer Arabella Vitanc two years later.

Critics[who?] gives Changes positive reviews for this album, for background vocals, rhythmic guitars, and its bombastic sound.[citation needed]
