Stars is an indie pop band formed in Toronto in 1998. The band consists of Members: Torquil Campbell Evan Cranley Patrick McGee Amy Millan Chris Seligman. Fast forward to 2014, the group now based in Montreal, has released 7 full-length studio albums, 6 extended plays, a remix album, and 19 singles.

Their seventh and latest studio record No One Is Lost was released on October 14, 2014. The release contains eleven tracks including the singles “From The Night” and “No One Is Lost.” Prior to listening to the album, I was hesitant. I had enjoyed previous releases beforehand. Will it live up to my expectations? The short answer: Yes, yes it did. The group maintained their sound from previous releases. However, it feels slightly more uplifting.

The songs that stood out the most for me on No One Is Lost include: “This is the Last Time,” “You Keep Coming Up,” and “Trap Door.” As a Stars fan, I enjoyed the album.
