Human Again

Genre: Rock, Pop; Lead Performer: Ingrid Michaelson; Music Label: Cabin 24

Michaelson’s wisp of a voice, fondness for noninvasive string-and-strum arrangements, and knack for sultry melodies have made her perfect fodder for the weepy nighttime-soap set. Human Again continues that tradition — expect the smoldering ”Ghost” to soundtrack a forbidden tryst on Ringer, and the sweeping ? ”In the Sea” to run over a cliffhanger on The Vampire Diaries. But not everything requires doe-eyed longing — ”Fire” has enough drama to follow Revenge. B+
