3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but a bit of a disappointment
Let's start by saying that I really like Ingrid: she's feisty, kind, sexy and talented. This, however, is a bit of a disappointment, a bit of a mixed bag. The best songs are the up tempo ones: Afterlife, Warpath (forgetting the excruciating line about a woman
on the warpath, this is her finest pop record since Maybe and Parachute) and Girls Chase Boys. Trouble is,...

This review is from: Lights Out (Audio CD)
Let's start by saying that I really like Ingrid: she's feisty, kind, sexy and talented. This, however, is a bit of a disappointment, a bit of a mixed bag. The best songs are the up tempo ones: Afterlife, Warpath (forgetting the excruciating line about a woman
on the warpath, this is her finest pop record since Maybe and Parachute) and Girls Chase Boys. Trouble is, there are way too many of Ingrid's portentous, piano based higher pitched efforts , most of which sound like copies of similar songs on the last three albums.
I have to say that I could find 20 songs off her last four albums to make a greatest hits album to sit alongside the best of anything anyone else has released in recent times, it's just the lack of consistency that grinds somewhat.
Go and see her live, where she is a charming angel, but if you want to find perfection in female performance: singing, writing and playing, then Aimee Mann beats Ingrid into a cocked hat.

Fantastic collection of songs that will not disappoint. Ingrid gets better and better with each release, not a bad track on this cd.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lights Out (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of Ingrid's. I love her first three albums. But this is truly disappointing. She's simply lost it. She was unique, distinctive, quirky, profound, sensitive. But the quality of the songwriting in this album is very poor. And the over-production can't disguise the hollowness of most of the songs.
It's really hard to believe that the writer of gems like "Breakable", "The Chain" or "Keep breathing" can churn out songs as bad a "One Night Town" "Afterlife" or "Warpath".
The opening track, "Home" with its very naff chorus is not very promising. "Girls Chase Boys" is alright, infectious and fun. And from the rest of the tracks, the only salvageable ones are "Open Hands" (beautiful although repetitive), "Ready To Lose", and "Wonderful Unknown". "Handsome Hands" starts off well, with a promising verse, but then it's marred by a horrible, bombastic chorus.
Everything else is bland, disposable, derivative, uninspired, hitting rock bottom with songs like "One Night Town", as shallow and disposable as any Eurovision turd.
And the album is closed with a blatant rip-off of Abba's "The WInner Takes It All".

I only with she wouldn't try to become just another popster diva, and return to her more introspective and profound self.
