INGRID MICHAELSON / Human Again [2012]

Indie-pop songstress Ingrid Michaelson aims for a more mature sound on her fifth album, 2012's Human Again.
Pushing her trademark ukelele & acoustic guitar a little further back into the glossy mix, Michaelson allows the grand piano & lush string arrangements to carry her song's light weight this time around.   Still, it's her strength in vulnerability vocals that glue everything together into a neat little package.  She's not bad at all, she just needs to step it up a bit more to stick out in genre filled with more unique acts than herself.
