It’s a deeper, more satisfying experience, with emotional substance that Lights so sorely lacked.

In today’s era of pop, where computers find the soul for winning contestants, it’s hard to scoff at Goulding, whose sole problem on her record is being too emotionally redundant.

On Halcyon Goulding amplifies her music genealogy, both who she is and who she’s been, in what is an often successful attempt to transition to iconic stardom.

‘Halcyon’ sees Goulding’s quirky-as-usual vocals lazily spliced into factory-standard chart dance.

I'd regret giving her anything less. I swear she has a gift at covering songs and making her own songs either emotional or just flat out cool. My Blood is by far the song that stood out the most in this album and deserved some award recognition.
