“The most immediately awe-inspiring quality is in Underwood's songwriting, quickly followed by his singing performance. The mere phrasing of his lines keeps the song at the forefront of the music fan's thinking for hours after having listened. The tones of “I Don't Need the Light” are at first reminiscent of Robert Miles, but are quickly punctuated by spooky, bright guitars like the work of U2's the Edge. This strength (which in “I Don't Need the Light” is emotionally visceral and can be literally staggering) is easily enough to demand attention from anyone with a soft spot for Coldplay or John Mayer – and especially if one likes power in music. The slightly audible distortion of Underwood's voice pegging the VU needle into the red is absolute gorgeousness. There is intensity in “I Don't Need the Light” like the looming impact of a metric ton of bricks falling at 32 feet per second per second. The high artistic quality of “I Don't Need the Light” is unmistakable.”
