Never likely to be one of those singers who is content just to turn up, lay down a main vocal part and leave, Ellie’s approach to writing and recording is, she admits, borderline obsessive – but then, anything less, she says, would be a waste of time.

As her debut album, Lights, made so thrillingly clear, Ellie Goulding uses her voice as a texture in much the same way that a ... Read more in Amazon's Ellie Goulding Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album!!!! 20 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album for a few months now and love it!!! Have been listening to it non-stop and it never gets boring.

It's one of those albums where you don't have to wind any songs on because they're all amazing. I recommend Ellie's album to everyone I know.

Stunning debut album, can't wait for the next one!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Album 12 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first want to say this album was by far the best album of 2010 and it deserved so much more recognition than it got. Although I loved Rihanna's Loud album that was released the same year it got so much recognition, high chart positions and strong ticket sales because of the club songs and her sexual outfits, performances and music videos. Lights didn't get that much, maybe because radio stations would rather play What's My Name instead of Starry Eyed.
I really love Lights, it is so different to any other album that was released that year and the songs are so calming and relaxing. I really recommend this album to everyone, there isn't one song I hate, there are no fillers and once you have listened to it you will love Ellie Goulding and you will be buying all her other albums.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bichon frise of a record (short and fluffy) 3 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After the Sound of 2010 win and the absurd pre-emptive Brit award, Ellie Goulding has seemed rather embarrassed by all the fuss - you get the sense of a beleaguered music industry willing an instant star out of someone who'd rather have built a career more organically. So it's not entirely her fault that this debut album doesn't live up to the hype. But with writing credits on all of the songs, she has to shoulder some of it.

Lights is a perfectly listenable soufflé of a record, and at just 35 minutes it hardly outstays its welcome, but there's none of the brio and personality that you get on Marina's *The Family Jewels* - an album superior in every department. And you might forgive a woman in her early twenties for having nothing very interesting to say, were it not for the even younger Laura Marling making people twice her age sound immature. Her faux-naif diction winds me up, too! This just isn't the knockout it needed to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly overproduced 5 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having seen Ellie twice support Little Boots on tour it annoys me that Frankmusik and Fin Dow-Smith (Starsmith) seem to have somewhat s**t on their friend Ms Goulding by overproducing the songs on this album to make themselves look good.

The demo versions of *Wish I'd Stayed* and *Guns and Horses* were better than these album versions - though G&H has suffered less at the hands of Starsmith than WIS at the hands of Frankmusik! Having said that *The Writer* and *I'll Hold My Breath* are much improved and the new track (I say new having followed Ellie's work for a good 6 months already) *Your Biggest Mistake* is great.

Overall I still rate the album highly - but will look forward to the live performances of more stripped down efforts in April. BTW I can't seen the reasoning of championing Marina's work much more than Lights. I have both albums and am struggling to get into *The Family Jewels*.

5.0 out of 5 stars She'll be massive in 2010! Deservedly. 3 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ellie Goulding is often described as 'Folktronica' because of the way her folk-esque songs are mixed with electronic sounds and beats courtesy of her producer Starsmith - and it's probably the best way to describe her. It's a winning combination and all of her songs are ultra catchy with lots of hooks throughout. With their sing-a-long choruses and beautiful melodies, every song stands out. Her voice is unique, but in the best possible way.

Particular highlights include Guns & Horses and Wish I Stayed. The first likely to be a single from this album.

Ellie has worked with Starsmith, Frankmusik and even Mark Ronson - a sign if ever there was one that she's one to watch. This album is likely to be a big seller in 2010.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lights Album By Ellie Goulding - 3 Stars! 30 Nov 2013
By Santana
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like the content of the album but the actual CD case wasn't shrink wrapped how they usually are which made it look used. This means that I can't give it as a Christmas present which was the original plan.

3.0 out of 5 stars The next album might be even better 8 May 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Like several other reviewers, I'm a little disappointed that this first album is so smooth, slick and tending towards bland. It's a bit like the dance remix of an album that was never released, that's the album I'd really like to hear.

Lights is not a bad album by any means. The ballad tracks towards the end - particularly Wish I Stayed and I'll Hold my Breath - are the best. Ellie Goulding has talent, and she has the potential to carve out a niche that is all her own. The album's producers clearly know how to make music that sells well. I hope that the next album will feature a bit more of what makes Ellie Goulding special.
