    At first, I actually didn't really like the change she made in her carreer by changing her name and her music. But now, listening to the album Don't Look Down, I can still find the old Holly Brook who I fell in love with in some songs. If you think she completely changed her style, try listening to "White Suburban": Holly is COMPLETELY there. She is one of the best voices I've ever met and I really do hope she will come to Brazil someday.

    "All I Want Is Love" and "Man on the Mountaintop" - two of the best songs she's ever made.

    @zackaryhope: I think they mean that they either like the name better or they like the specific music better.

    Does ANYONE know where I can get the b-sides from Like Blood Like Honey? According to wiki, they were on some "deluxe edition", which I cannot find any information on anywhere. Amazon, eBay, iTunes, PirateBay, etc. No one has those extra tracks available.

    Holly Brook > Skylar Grey [11] until this day, i don't really understand the need to change the name and the need to show more belly to sell more music...

    Keep both tags, Holly music is Holly's and Skylar's music is Skylar's. You wouldn't merge Selena Gomez + Selena Gomez & the Scene, even though the latter isn't really much of a band.

    Skylar & Holly need to be merged. You personal opinions on her name change or her music as Skylar is irrelevant, she is now Skylar whether you like it or not. [3]

    Sky and Holly shouldn't be merged. Music legally under Holly Brook should remain and the new songs under Skylar should remain also. [1]

    If you wouldn't emerge Deep Deep Sleep with everything Holly is involved with why emerge both of their solo work?
