Product Description

Deluxe edition includes four bonus tracks. 2012 release, the sophomore album from Welsh singer songwriter Marina Lambrini Diamandis AKA Marina & The Diamonds. Electra Heart is not so much a creative leap forward, more an Olympian pole-vault over the bar of talented-newcomer into the global amphitheater of a cultivated Classic. Two years on from her top 5 debut The Family Jewels, the self-styled avant-garde D.I.Y artist has detonated her own experimental past and landed feet first in the future with Electra Heart, a stunningly ambitious, seamless, cohesive and confident sonic pulsar spinning between electro-pop euphoria and come-down melancholia. The album is produced by a cache of old school and A-List producers: Dr Luke (Katy Perry) and Liam Howe (Sneaker Pimps) but mostly ( nine out of 12 songs) Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Kylie) and Rick Nowels (Madonna, Stevie Nicks, Lykke Li).

Not happy with this purchase,the record suffered heavy distortion and frequent skips. This is made all the more soul-crushing for me due to the fact that this is probably my favourite album of the last decade.

Love Marina! Her quirky but dead accurate lyrics mixed with a lot of different sounds. You won't find a repeating message or sound on this CD. SO GOOD!

A truly fantastic album. Every song could and should be a smash hit. Can't wait for the next one to come out :)

Marina has decided to go off on a new tack here and create a concept album about the "rise and fall" (Primadonna) of the "American queen" who is the "American dream" (Hollywood). So basically, the first half is brash and aggressive and ego-driven as Ms. Wonderful battles to the top, the second half is bewildered, bemoaning and despairing as she slides her way down, and "Fear and Loathing" closes things out in resigned but wiser acceptance. So she is deliberately creating her music within the limits of that storyline. And precisely because she is working within limits, I think the music suffers. It's pretty much flashy pop (best exemplified in "Bubblegum Bitch") interspersed with a few more reflective ballads, including what are maybe the two best tracks here, "Lies" and "Valley of the Dolls". But even the latter two are only near-knockouts, whereas just about every track on "The Family Jewels" is a knockout. That's because in her debut album she was not confined to a character but free to be anything and everything (mostly catty and witty and a helluva lot of fun). I'd go so far as to say there is probably more inspired creativity in "Mowgli's Road" alone than in this entire album.

Ironically, what the trouble seems to be is that she really DOES want to be Ms. Wonderful. She has been recorded as saying that she released Primadonna as the British single in a deliberate attempt to change her career, i.e. to BECOME A STAR (or more of one). Hence too the bland dance-pop of "Radioactive", released in the US but not officially part of this album (only on the deluxe version). The blonde dye-job and/or wig seems to be part of this campaign (and I for one don't find the new look flattering at all).

Ah, well, what can you do.
