When Canadian electro-rock sensation Lights first hit the music scene in 2008, she was just a songwriter with a synth and a dream. Her name may have been pluralized but Lights Poxleitner was a one-woman show who played and programmed her own instruments a

Enter Siberia. This album is excellent follow up to her debut effort. It's polished, it flows from one track to another, and diverse enough to keep you listening on repeat for quite some time. The album instantly sucks you in with the hypnotic titled track "Siberia", a melodic track that showcases Lights soothing vocals to a tee - no screaming, no whining, no wailing vocals, just a good opening track that relaxes you and leaves you impressed when over. The leading single "Toes" is perhaps the catchiest song on the album, the bumping synths definitely gets the toes tapping, and you will have "Oh, you capture my attention" stuck in your head for the weeks to follow. It's borderline criminal. "Timing Is Everything" "Banner" "Peace Sign" are all excellent tracks, each one showcasing how much Lights as matured her sound and voice since 2009. If you have doubts about Lights vocal range, one only has to listen to the chorus to "Flux and Flow"; a fat-sounding beat with some dubstep influence and an amazing chorus makes this one one of my favorites. "Fourth Dimension" has dubstep influence, but not overdone - which is a prevailing theme throughout the album, just enough to recognize, but not so much it drowns you out in disgust. These are just the tracks that caught my attention.
In conclusion Siberia is one of my favorites releases to come out of the abysmal over-saturated soup known as the "Music Industry" this year. The album is dark and moody, full of dance tracks, yet relaxing and calming enough to leave you refreshed. Lights voice, while no Adele or some other high profile singer, is very soothing and soulful. Her sound is easy on the ears and doesn't scream for too much attention. Siberia blends the soothing vocals perfectly with electronica, not one over-powering the other, which makes for an easy and accessible album to listen too. Lights is a proper artist, who is willing to fight tooth-and-nail to make an album that makes her happy, not the bean counters (the business man) I hope Lights sticks it out for a third album, her talent would be deeply missed if she decides to pursue other interest.
If you haven't heard her... the Listening, her first cd, at least to me, had a very upbeat female postal service esque sound.
I love electro pop and LIGHTS is perfect for an enjoyable electronic sound. Her lyrics are thoughtful, her sounds are creative and her singing is pleasant and airy.
This new cd has a harder electronic feel compared to the last one. It's very poppy with a pulsating electronic edge that is not necessarily techno dance music. There's nothing like it and its hard to describe.
If you like the electropop sounds of la roux, passion pit,ellie goulding, oh land, lenka, faded paper figures, feist, postal service, imogen heap and the like, please check this cd out.
I thought I would throw in my own postive review on amazon in the hopes that LIGHTS finds the fans she deserves!
Where the Fence is Low is currently on repeat in my cd player. The song is incredible.
