Lights Strips Down On Acoustic Album

Electropop singer Lights released her sophomore album Siberia in 2011. The album was a dubstep-filled classic. The album was better than her debut and had catchy, emotional songs.
Last month Lights released her Siberia album acoustically. The album features 10 out of the 14 songs done acoustically. While the songs are all still great, the album is a tad boring. From album highlights "Toes" and "Peace Sign" to other cuts like "Banner," the album is not as interesting.
One thing that Siberia Acoustic does is add guest vocalists to the songs. "Cactus in the Valley" becomes a duet with Owl City. The album's best song and title track "Siberia" is a piano-laced duet with Max Kerman of Arkells and "Peace Sign" is a bilingual duet with Coeur De Pirate.
While the album isn't as great as the original, it is a good way to tide Lights fans over until her third album.
