I have been anxiously looking forward to this album release since Ingrid’s first single, “Girls Chase Boys” came out and I fell in love with the catchy beat. After “Wonderful Unknown” was released I was even more anxious as I thought it was one of her best songs to date. It is still one of my favorites so far, with such a beautiful melody and lyrics that tell a story.

Now that I have had the opportunity to listen to the entire album I can say that it was well worth the wait. This is what true artistic evolution sounds like. When you are listening, you know that it is Ingrid. She can sing just about anything and you will recognize her signature sound. This album is the accumulation of all of her previous works, melded together to make Lights Out. The “Oh oh ohs” in “Home” are reminiscent of her sound on her Everybody album, “Girls Chase Boys” could have followed “Blood Brothers” on Human Again, and then she introduces a brand new sound that can be heard in songs like “Warpath” and “Time Machine” where she gives us a dose of ferocity that I was pleasantly surprised to hear.

I can keep Lights Out on repeat and not have the desire to skip any of the songs. Even the duets are lovely; Ingrid chose to feature artists that truly complement her sound. I think fans of Ingrid will hear just how much she has evolved and appreciate the artistry on this album. I believe that it will attract some new fans as well.

While I definitely recommend purchasing the whole album, some stand outs for me are: Wonderful Unknown, Home, Girls Chase Boys, Warpath

Several months ago or more, Ingrid Michaelson posted on Facebook, "I want to make music that people can dance to," or something along those lines (if I try to look it up for accuracy, I'll get distracted and this review will never be written). I'm sure that comment worried a lot of their fans-- a decade ago, Jewel tried the same thing and was accused of "selling out."

Well, never fear! This album clearly fulfills Ingrid's wish while remaining distinctly "Ingrid Michaelson." Even as I write this, I can't get the infectious "Girls Chase Boys" out of my head. There are also half a dozen team-ups that are exceptional, my personal favorite is "One Night Town" with Matt Kearney (who, like Ingrid, has an unmistakably distinctive voice). In fact, I would venture to claim that the weakest songs on the album are those where Ingrid falls back into her old, mellow pattern. That's where I can understand other fans' wish for an "unplugged" album. However, they're still beautiful songs, and I have to say that this album contends with *Girls & Boys* for the top spot in her repertoire.

Strange as it sounds, I bought this CD on a whim because I liked the cover image and thought: "How bad can it be?" Little did I know Ingrid Michaelson not only has the voice of an angel, but a gift for lyric poetry that makes art of even the most apparently mundane of subject matter.

Straight away, the radio friendly tracks "Girls Chase Boys," "Time Machine" and the anthemic "Afterlife" will grab you will their eminent "hummabilty." However, the slower, richer, more lush tracks like "Wonderful Unknown" and "Everyone Is Gonna Love Me Now" sneak up on you! Before you realize or understand why, rather than just album fillers, they are the reason you keep going back to "Lights Out."

And if you have any affection for the best that pop music has to offer, you will keep going back.

Ingrid Michaelson is a fantastic singer/songwriter, and I honestly believe this is her best album yet. It has a much new, more modern sound to it, and I love when an artist can stretch themselves and still provide great content with a wonderful new sound to it. The songs on this album are filled with emotion (as her songs usually are) and have a some great beats to them for keeping you energized and going through the day while still becoming involved in the story.

Having started listening to Ingrid during her Myspace days with under 100k likes, I have followed her for years and loved almost every song on all of her albums. I was super excited when I heard she had a new album coming out, but am disappointed. Her voice is great, as usual...but it's missing..SOMEthing. Originality maybe? I fell in love with her unique and quirky lyrics in all of her other songs, and this album is missing some of that. The lyrics are very flat. There is also a LOT of synthesizer going on....I feel like Ingrid's voice is amazing enough on it's own without having to auto-tune the hell out of it. I understand that she may want to become a little more "pop" to sell more albums and make money, since we've all gotta eat, but I WISH she hadn't gone so far into the boring, everyday pop genre.

A thought: her last song, "everyone's going to love me now"....an acknowledgement to her old school fans that this album is aimed towards the dull masses? hmmm

Still love Ingrid and respect her as a musician and artist, but hope to see more meaningful lyrics and songs from her again in her next album!
