    Marina Diamandis rivals Katy Perry for catchy hooks, commands with the swagger of Gwen Stefani, and even comes close to the ethereal vocal exhilaration of Florence Welch.

    Electra Heart manages to balance the ironic and the heartfelt, the quirky and the mainstream, the real and the fake with remarkable aplomb.
  3. Electra Heart is too professional to be truly terrible, but it's never clever enough to be more than merely toytown.

    Not sure-footed enough in its subversion, its artificiality feels fake rather than carefully plotted.

    Electra Heart sounds high on concept, low on songs. [Jun 2012, p.108]

    These prom queen themes have had a more intriguing musical treatment from Lana del Rey.

    'Electra heart' is an ingloriously languid statement of Marina's demise, the final stamp of disapproval on her flailing excuse of a musical career.

This album is easily my favourite of the two, and arguably my favourite album. The lyrics painting all too relatable pictures, of obsession with fame, social anxiety and gender wars in romance alongside a reasonably well deserified tone and sound of the backing music make this album quite the treat.
