    The album is a blissful, laser-toned experience where Poxleitner's sweet voice is expertly wrapped in stylish, multicolored hues of fluorescent keyboard squelch and bass guitar shimmer.
  2. This is one of the better electro-pop albums of 2011, one that will stimulate your senses and rope you in with its instantaneous catchiness.

    The bulk of the album's 14 tracks find her playing it safe with a helium-voiced squeak reminiscent of (take your pick) Gwen Stefani, Santigold, Kate Bush or Cyndi Lauper. [Nov 2011, p.97]

    This is a fine piece of synthpop that is a good addition to the collection of any fan of this genre.

    Lights is at times let down by this lack of variation.

    Sadly, Siberia is lacking any genuine spark.

    an absolutely refreshing new sound. poxleitner's charming voice is seamlessly layered on top of subtle synth progressions and twanging bass lines, creating a fusion between genres at the vanguard of today's electro scene. Full Review »

    Taking the lyrical poetry of The Listening and skipping past its auto-tuned hiccups, Lights has created an album worthy of its praise. Complete with a deluge of pop tracks so soothing to the ears, they'd top charts, the album is carried by a shockingly gleeful feeling of desolation. Even carefree pop tracks such as Toes and Peace Sign feel as if they're being sung from the bleakness of an arctic tundra. Shamefully this is a gem of an album that has gone virtually unnoticed by the pop world. Full Review »
