    Sees the Light manages to squeeze a boatload of emotions out of simple verse-chorus-verse pop.

    Goodman casts a spell on the listener with Sees the Light.

    In almost every way, Sees the Light is an impressive leap forward for Goodman that shows she's more than ready to make La Sera her full-time musical outlet.

    By spending most of its brief running time in an uptempo, breezy mode, Sees the Light more than compensates for its relatively modest arsenal of hooks and similar sounding choruses.

    It's lightweight stuff, as easy to wash off as a day of surf and sand. But it's difficult to deny the buzzy delights of her aggressively rough-hewn pop.

    The first four or so tracks of Sees the Light hold their own in terms of melody and momentum....Unfortunately, Sees the Light devolves from there into full-on, committed homogeneity, songs blending into each other with little to set them apart

    Sees The Light is a decent solo effort, but for the casual observer it might be worth saving your currency for the next Vivian Girls record.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Katy Goodman, desahogo en melodías. La bajista de Vivian Girls construye su segundo disco a base de sentimientos, inquietudes y decepciones. Solitaria difiere del punk acostumbrado con su trío neoyorquino; sus temas dóciles y líricas acostumbradas a lo sumiso.
