    Its just as trashy as I remember it after I listened to it a second time. I really dont know what Matisyahu was thinking. The album is so mainstream and pop and nothing compared to his previous work.

    On his incredibly busy album, Light, there are signs of diversification too. [Jul 2010, p.140]
  2. Add Kahne's instantly accessible production and Light is not only a welcome surprise, but an album that matches his debut.
  3. On bright pleasures like the New Wave-y 'We Will Walk,' Light comes close to becoming an attention-holding pop album. But it's dragged into earnest tedium by good-natured platitudes hippie-soul moments like 'Thunder,' on which Matisyeezy sounds like a self-serious indie rapper with a major vegan bent.
