Genius! What a Shiny Diamond!
on August 10, 2012
I'm not going to do Marina and the Diamonds the disservice of comparing her voice to anyone else. Start to finish, this album is original, dramatic, and just plain incredible! It doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard before. This CD is so peppered with brilliant highlights, it's impossible to pick one track as a standout.
Imagine if we could finally get a pop queen that was intelligent, talented, original, not 16-years old, not a waif, not a raging alcoholic, not about T&A dance moves, and not a commercial product of "American Idol" or "Got Talent"? Now, that would be something! You go, Marina! I'm rooting for ya.
