LIGHTS / Siberia 
2009's The Listening was insanely sweet and offensively cute, so thankfully Siberia tones down the sugar flavored sap and inserts some distorted dub-step & hip-hop tinted anthems. Lights still sounds like Cyndi Lauper overdosed on pixie sticks & rainbows but now with a little bit of attitude it's much more bearable to the ears. Her voice is actually quite nice but I get the feeling she found a comfort zone then stuck to it without realizing her full potential. It does get a bit repetitive in the middle but if she explores her creativity with a bit more confidence and curiosity things could get really good.
