Album Review: Ingrid Michaelson – Everybody (Cabin 24 Records)

Ingrid Michaelson

Already fairly well known in her own home across the big pond, New York-based bespectacled hottie Ingrid Michaelson is looking to replicate that success in Europe and the UK with the release of sophomore album ‘Everybody’. Don’t let the rather bland cover fool you – this isn’t exactly another mild, listless contemporary adult pop album (contemporary adult pop?! Jesus Christ, there’s a phrase that makes me shudder) – I promise you, Ingrid is a little more Regina than Norah. Good pals with my imaginary boyfriend, Jason Mraz, her sound is the female counterpart to his – very poppy, but quality pop with clever lyrics and interesting melodies. ‘Everybody’ opens with the excellently executed ‘Soldier’, a song that fully represents the fresh American acoustic pop that forms the solid backbone of the entire album, before moving onto pop-folkish fare such as ‘So Long’ and ‘Sort Of’ and Tori Amos-esque tunes like ‘The Chain’ and ‘Men Of Snow’. ‘Everybody’ is a welcome addition to my album collection, and I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated pop so glossy and sweet.
