iTunes Review

Midnight Machines is more than just an acoustic retelling of 2014's Little Machines. With the instruments stripped way back, Lights’ vocals are more emotion-packed and confidently honest than they’ve ever sounded. Where “Up We Go” was once a peppy electro-pop fist-pumper, and “Muscle Memory” a slinky, arpeggiated-synth groover, here they're direct, tender, and vulnerable. But what’s more important is that Midnight Machines gets you listening to the gorgeous songs she's penned, unbleached by production flash. It’s a rare feat to improve upon a record by redoing it years later—but that’s arguably the case with this beauty.

anything lights does, acoustic or electro, is gonna be stunning.
but come on girl, you’re blatantly ignoring all the best songs on Little Machines. You’ve performed Up We Go, Running with the Boys, Meteorites, and Muscle Memory countless times acoustically for over a year. i was hoping for a better tracklist.
I would’ve LOVE to hear Speeding and Lucky Ones acoustic

Lights does nothing but astound me.

Truly a multi-talented musician. Once again, Lights has released an album with a sound entirely different from what she has done before. She reveals more and more sides of the pop genre than I ever expected from it, and each time, she excels. Her talent seems endless.

I have been a fan for several years, since first hearing her song "River" on MySpace in '09. After she released 'Siberia', I was dedicated to following her journey through musical exploration. I have reaped the rewards again and again.

Lights has unknowingly eased me through dark times, shown me to recognize and appreciate the good times, reminded me to look forward to new days, but never to forget the old.

'Midnight Machines' is exquisite. The string quartet featured in the album perfectly complements Lights' unique, dreamy voice. It contains a couple of new tracks, but is mostly composed of songs from 'Little Machines'. It's amazing how she can artfully apply a new sound to an old song and draw different emotions than previously from the listener. I was playing it on the way into work, and halfway through the first track ("Up We Go"), I was tearing up. By the end of the album, I was crying.

At any rate, I am proud of this woman and excited to figure out what the rest of her journey sounds like. A huge 'thank you' to Lights again and again and again.

So excited!

Can't wait to hear the full EP, her passion for her music is amazing. Can't wait for a new new album after this one. 😍

Lights first cracked the Canadian charts in May 2008, when the debut single "Drive My Soul" introduced her synthesis of youthful, sellable alt-rock and contemporary synth pop. Born in April 1987 in Timmins, Ontario, Valerie Poxleitner spent her childhood traveling alongside her missionary parents. She also took up songwriting at an early age, using verses from the Bible to prompt titles for her new material.
