      wold highly recommend to those who havent already purchased Lights

      If you are an Elle Gouldig fan, or even if you are not, you will have heard many of these tracks already on the radio. Starry eyed in particular was a DJ's favourite, with under te sheets and Guns and Horses close runners up.

      Her music style is a mixture of pop and dance, and her clear distinctive voice adds interest and individuality to music that could otherwise be a bit samey. Her style includes crisp clear pronounciation of words, almost like she is saying them, although she is most definitely singing, and has a beautiful lyrical range.

      Be warned though, if you have previously purchased the album Lights, the first ten tracks of this album are identical. You do get the bonus of seven extra tracks which are well worth it, especially her unusual version of Elton John's Your Song, but you may feel that you wasted your money by previoulsy buying Lights.

      Brilliant, intelligent and catchy tunes from Ellie!

      Ellie Goulding's album, released in 2010, is a difficult genre to sum up. However it is probably dance. Ellie's dance music reflects her childhood growing up in the country by her lyrics alone, and even though the background music isn't a country style, the lyrics are, which makes Ellie's music very interesting because of the dance music plus country style lyrics over the top of the tracks. Ellie's music is not only intelligent, but reflects her innocent and adventurous/questioning personality. Ellie has written her songs autobiographically, especially in her song 'Wish I Stayed', where it is evident from the lyrics that Ellie is speaking about past experiences. The best known song in this album is probably 'Starry Eyed', which Ellie released first; this was her breakthrough song. 'Starry Eyed' has a 'dreamy' melody to it, and is very melodic and catchy. This can be said about all of Ellie's songs; they are catchy without being too repetitive. Some of the songs sound a little 'chimey' creating the dreamy sound Ellie has mastered. A positive about Ellie's music is that the lyrics are very easy to make out without having to read them, as Ellie has a clear singing voice. Ellie questions a lot of things in her music, making her album Bright Lights a great album to analyse and interpret if you like doing that. Ellie's music is very sweet, however not very sexy, so if you like this kind of sound then Bright Lights is right for you.
