Songs are too mopey imo and way too much emphasis on just her vocals instead of her having overall good songs with good music to back it up. I definitely understand her appeal though especially in this music climate.
LIGHTS is awesome. I gotta say the new electro vibe is fitting her very well. I prefer the new songs vs. her older ones, especially "Everybody Breaks A Glass" (minus the rap part) Yeah I really like Shad, but not in that song.
And by the way, she is VERY pretty in person. I have interviewed her last year for my musical website and I was intimidated by her beauty. (You can watch here)
