The only negative thing I can say about this EP is that it's just an EP, and not a full-length album. I want more.

Lights has a beautiful voice, and it really shows in these 5 songs. She's stripped the music down to just her voice and her guitar, and I'm very thankful she did. I can't stop listening.

Also, it would be nice if Amazon could fix the name of the artist on all of her albums in the mp3 store. This isn't a band called "The Lights", but a girl whose name is "Lights".

This acoustic EP is definitely a must-have for your music library...

If beauty could be materialized into sounds, this would be it. Simply amazing.

Lights has a great voice and doesn't need a whole lot added. Her treatment of these songs proves that. After seeing her live, she lets some of the whole studio sound go and her live music is tons better than the CD (and the CD is great!), but this CD takes her voice and presents it as is...tremendously beautiful.

I'm incredibly proud of her for releasing a self-recorded acoustic album. Each track is fantastic. My only complaint is that it isn't long enough!

If you love LIGHTS this is a must have, if you've never heard of her this is a must have. My favourite album by far (:

This album is a definite shout out to the scores of fans that have followed her locally and online. Her studio album is exceptional for it's synth and vibe but Lights' first Acoustic album harkens back to the uniqueness of her voice and guitar. It highlights her voice, simple and pure. While the album is short (We need a full album, not an EP), it provides a good break from the intergalactic sound of her first album. Hopefully Lights will see that the success of this EP warrants a full release of her already vast library of covers, work, and creations.

Like one reviewer said it's just an EP, it only has 5 songs on this disk. I am as big of a fan of the plastic CD cases as the next person, so I would've liked a larger casing.

Set List:

1. River
If you havent heard the studio version of this song than you seriously have to. First off Valerie's voice is high-pitched, so much so that she doesn't sound her age at all. I dont know what it is about her, it just sounds like an angel which sounds like an exageration, but its true. The strum of the guitar against her high-pitched voice is a contrast, I like that in music. The same thing with her Synths.
2. February Air
I honestley think Valerie wrote this song on the guitar, rather a synth. It could be a lulliby to be honest. I have fallen asleep to her sweet voice before.
3. Fall Back Down.
Fall Back Down is a cover by Rancid its a little more aggresive, I have not heard Rancid perform this song, but I imagine Valerie did put in her own twist as an artist.
4. Saviour
This is a large song for Valerie, I think Valerie writes a lot of her songs on the guitar, because she had all the notes perfect.
5. Romance Is...
This beginning is strong, Valerie makes her voice reflect that as well.

I recommend listening to Valeries songs on the Listening, Siberia, and most importantly LIGHTS EP. Definatley to the new listeners.

Great album! Lights' voice and songwriting shine. I also love the Rancid cover. My only complaint is the small number of songs.
