As someone who likes both traditional instruments and electronic music, I was not put off by this album like the other reviewers. I like Ingrid's earlier music, but the thing that always drew me to her was her voice, and that's not lost in these arrangements. It reminds me of Norah Jones' newest disc where she expresses her musical ideas in a different way. I actually prefer the songs that don't follow the mold of Ingrid's previous work; "This Is War" is the one that grabbed me.

The stripped-down, ukelele-toting Ingrid is not to be found on this release, and for many longtime Ingrid fans - it's a shame. She had told interviewers that this album was to take her in a new direction, that she wanted to grow up from the girl she used to be. To me, this album sounds like her new direction is in that of Sara Bareilles. Weird thing is, I adore Sara - this album is just not up to her level, though. Ingrid was queen of her domain, but in stepping into this more poppy sound, she's competing against veteran artists who've already honed their sound. This album just didn't cut it for me. My favorites, however, are "I'm Through", the very minimal "How We Love", and her crooning "The End of the World". I'm also not a fan of this version of "Ghost", but the live version from Laurel Canyon on Youtube is worth a listen.

I am a super fan of Ingrid's, so I pretty much cried when I listened to this album the first time...what a disappointment. The album sounds like Ingrid wrote a great album and then put it through a pop-music crapinator machine. Where there used to be acoustic guitar and piano, there is now electric guitar and bass. I do not understand. What happened, Ingrid?? The only song that sounds like the Ingrid we all know and love is "I'm Through", and it is utterly gorgeous. I wish I would have listened to it on Spotify instead of automatically spending $6--such a waste.

Why is emu's non functioning recommendation engine thinking I would want this awful noise?

I agree with Benyamen. Her previous work had more of a personal feeling to it. This album and the one previous feel and sound more produced and lose much of what I loved about her. Still a fan, but I hope she'll return to her "roots" in the future and step away from the drum machine.

It's ironic how "Human Again" sounds like the least "human" of her albums so far. I loved her previous work. It was very stripped down and simple in a beautiful and poetic way. Unfortunately somewhere in the last year or two some fiend bought Ingrid a drum machine and she has apparently become quite enamored with it. Much of the music would be the same beautiful stuff she's made before, but now she's almost tried too hard to be trendy and wound up mutating herself into some Feist spin-off. There are a few tunes on here that are simple and elegant that make this album not a total loss, but I was dreadfully disappointed.
