Biography

In the past two years, Ingrid Michaelson — who’ll drop her fifth studio album, Lights Out (Cabin 24/Mom+Pop) on April 15 — has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star. Her last release, Human Again, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No.1 on iTunes).

This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had ... Read more in Amazon's Ingrid Michaelson Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the fifth album from the singer/songwriter, the follow-up to 2009's Everybody. Produced by David Kahne, the tracks on Human Again are darker, impassioned songs that throw a wrench in Michaelson's reputation as the crafter of dainty love songs. The first single, 'Ghosts', finds Michaelson exploring a more mature sound. "The album is called Human Again because it's taken me a very long time to be happy," explains Michaelson. "The music on this album might surprise some people. I was really singing out, physically; I was writing about a really dark time in my life."

5.0 out of 5 stars Power. January 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Ingrid told us months ago that this album will be louder because she's growing up and she was a tad tired of being the sweet girl-y girl. This album is exactly what she warned us of, and she rocked it.

This album opens with the powerful 1. Fire, string-filled and stepping out of the boundaries. It reminds me a little of Viva La Vida by Coldplay.

2. This Is War, keeping her ukulele style a little with strong beats to it. "It's a wonder how I survived this war between your heart and mine." This is an enjoyable track, though it keeps an even level through out the song.

3. Do It Now, starting with a beat along with some strings followed by some beautiful harmonies. Ingrid's voice is very pure here, also versatile. It seems like an ordinary track, actually sounding similar to the one before it.

4. I'm Through, a beautiful track beginning with strings. She comes back to her piano here for the rest of the track. "I would rather feel the sting than to never had felt a thing." Ingrid's voice is pure and relaxing here. A nice violin solo takes the bridge to a dreamy place.

5. Blood Brothers, one of Ingrid's personal favourites. I'm getting a "Girls and Boys"(Ingrid's second album) vibe from this song. "We're all the same, under a different name. We're all blood brothers." This song is mostly acoustic guitar with occasional strings. It is powerful, yet keeping a sweet tone.

6. Black and Blue is real funk. Maybe a little Hip-Hop feel. This track really shows Ingrid's vocal abilities.

7. Ribbons starts with a nice acoustic chord progression and has some nice vocal harmonies. It's medium to fast paced and powerful enough to get you on your feet!

8. How We Love begins with acoustic guitar and the lyrics tell a love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ingrid's music evolves, but still Ingrid January 25, 2012
By Paul T.
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The hardest thing for an any artist to do is to put out new work. If it is too much like the old work people complain that the artist is in a rut. If the work is too different then fans are put off. It is an incredibly tough line to walk and too many artists are content to turn out more-of-the-same to a slowly dwindling fan base.

Ingrid takes a risk with "Human Again" by putting out an album with a bigger sound than the girl-at-her-ukulele her fans are used to. There is more orchestration and more production and more going on.

With "Human Again" fans may have to evolve a little with Ingrid and open up to something that is a bit different than past work but is still distinctly Ingrid and completely wonderful.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sum Of Its Parts January 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I just want to throw my two cents in here, basically for Ingrid's sake. While the occasional tune does feel a little overblown in terms of production, it's not any more so than previous efforts like Girls & Boys. The overall feel of this album is what wins me over. The melodies are mostly dead-on, the lyrics a mixed bag, but the four or five great songs are GREAT songs, flanked by genuinely good to decent tunes that aren't hard on the ears, even if they don't break new ground.

If you're not hooked right away, neither was I. Give it a couple listens if you're a fan of hers. I've only listened to three of Michaelson's albums - the aforementioned Girls & Boys and 2008's Be OK, and this one is my favorite so far. Very cohesive. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album Yet! January 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a hugeee fan of Ingrid I feel the need to defend her work on this album. There is not a single track I don't love or relate to. People complain when an artist does the same kind of record again and again. Yet, they also hate when an artist steps away from what they (fans) are used to. I think Ingrid wanted to try something new while maintaining her unique style. People need to remember that when an artist like Ingrid who writes all her own music comes out with something new they're probably thinking more about getting their feelings and emotions out, not about whether everyone will like or relate to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Producer, Same Great Ingrid February 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ingrid Michaelson has quietly been climbing the charts since her debut album, "Slow the Rain," hit shelves on Jan. 10, 2005. Although the young singer/songwriter has yet to sell out any arenas with her often love-centric acoustic tunes, Ingrid Michaelson's rabid fan-base has steadily and rapidly grown. Now five albums into her career, each of her records has outsold the last. Hitting number one on iTunes' chart on the day of its release, "Human Again" is sure to continue this trend.

For any fans of Michaelson's earlier material, the most immediate difference between "Human Again" and her previous recordings is the production style. David Kahne, who has previously worked with Sublime, Regina Spektor, Kelly Clarkson, and even Paul McCartney, to name a few, is in the driver's seat for "Human Again," replacing longtime producer and arranger, Dan Romer.

Opening with "Fire" and Kahne's presence is immediately felt thanks to the synthesized strings and heavy drums that take over the mix. The only thing that escapes Kahne's influence is, thankfully, Michaelson's voice, which comes through crisp and clear. Sure, there is some doubling of her vocals on the chorus, but the same has been done on past hit singles like "Maybe."

Speaking of her voice, Ingrid Michaelson's vocals have gotten significantly stronger since 2009's "Everybody."

Her trademark sweet and innocent phrasing is still ever-present in the verses, but on tracks like "This is War" and "Ghost," she belts out the choruses with such authority and strength that you can't imagine she's the least bit phased by the men who have supposedly broken her heart in the lyrics.

I knew this was a different style for her. And it was ok, but she has such a style in her other CDs. This is a move towards generic pop. Read more
