4.0 out of 5 stars LIGHTS is sure to sky-rocket to even greater things!, 3 Dec 2010
This review is from: The Listening (Audio CD)
The début album from Canadian singer LIGHTS is a fun listen. Upon first hearing her single 'Ice' on the internet, I was not sure whether I liked the sound of her voice or not,I first considered it slightly irritating, but after a few listens I became accustomed to it and found I really enjoyed her songs. Sure, the lyrics may not be the best ever written, but the key to LIGHTS' music is that she creates very catchy melodies using that keytar of hers.

From this album, I would say that essential listens would be 'Saviour', 'Drive My Soul', 'Second Go' and 'Quiet', although there is not essentially a bad song on the album, personally I feel the weakest are 'Face Up' or 'River', mainly because they do not have the immediate impact that on the listener that is made by the other songs.

LIGHTS is rather original in her sound, the only artist that comes to mind that is remotely similar is Owl City, although if you are not a fan of his songs, don't let the potential similarity put you off from having a listen. I also own the LIGHTS Acoustic, which is also worth a listen, as the songs 'River' and 'February Air' certainly shine more accompanied by only an acoustic guitar, and her newest single 'My Boots', which is likely to be on her second album and is an essential listen as it is immediately more catchy than some of the songs on 'The Listening'. LIGHTS is probably one of my favourite discoveries this year and I can't wait to hear what she puts out next!
