4.0 out of 5 stars Guts and Grace, 13 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Siberia (Audio CD)
Lights is one Lights Valerie Poxleitner. She comes from Canada and
this is her second album. It's a frothy mix of upbeat electro-pop
mixed with material possessed of a somewhat edgier ambience here
and there. Fourteen tracks in the set makes it quite a generous
deal for a sophomore effort but she sustains interest throughout.

Ms Lights has a pleasant voice; not a great instrument but a perfectly
adequate one. The music is undemanding but melodious in a Katy Perry-
is-a-good-friend-of-mine kind of way. There are plenty of perky hooks
to learn which lend themselves well to those of a sing-along disposition.

She is assisted in her venture by producers Tawgs Salter (who features
not insignificantly in co-writing duties) and Holy F*** (a brave choice!)

Of the material on offer I found myself particularly drawn to the thumping
title track 'Siberia' which chugs along merrily despite its somewhat
chilly title; 'Heavy Rope', a lighter-textured invention sporting a
nicely wistful vocal performance and some crisp beats; 'Suspension',
which invites us to don our dancing shoes and wiggle gainfully and
and 'Peace Sign', a bubbling piece of synth-infused power-pop which
seems to have been touched gainfully by the spirit of Avril Lavigne.

Needless to say Scatty and Gritz (the cubs) love it but this may well
have as much to do with Ms Lights' countenance as her musical abilities.

Recommended.

I can't believe it! I immediately thought of you when I checked out this album and sure enough your well ahead of the game! The new Ryan Leslie rap album is an interesting affair.
Best wishes
