    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 is my 2nd favorite album of all time (behind The Family Jewels)
    It took me a while to warm up to this album (as it did with the family jewels) but now that I've gotten used to them I absolutely love them! You should buy this album and find Living Dead, Buy the Stars, Lonely Hearts Club and Scab and Plaster, because they are also fantastic. Just give this album a chance and listen to every song at least 3 times, then you will LOVE it. If you must, only get Bubblegum **** Lies, Homewrecker, Starring Role, How to be a Heartbreaker, and Fear and Loathing. Primadonna is her most popular song, and probably to easiest to like, but not my personal favorite

But theres a difference btweenIn her second album, Marina came like a Pop-Star, someone who cold compete with Teenage Dream by Katy Perry. But theres a difference btween her and them. She uses her music to talk t the masses in a very smart way, showing as Electra is an emotional and problematic women as much Marina critics the alienating, consumist, and fakeness in society today, making the teen public who met her through "Primadonna" get a new look of their sense of life. Generic beats and melodies can make yo love or hate this album from a momento to other, or fade through the time, but, althoght Electra Heart is a very confusing album, but it does actually work.

SomeElectra Heart is full of hooks and some high lyrical points. However, some songs feel like they were thrown together compared to others. Some moments are great both musically with songs like "Primadonna", "Lies", "Homewrecker", "State of Dreaming" and "Sex Yeah!" But honestly, this album is a bit of a disappointment compared to The Family Jewels. Expand

    Marina can expose any excuse but there isn't a good reason for made this album like she made it. Her voice and the really annoying electronicMarina can expose any excuse but there isn't a good reason for made this album like she made it. Her voice and the really annoying electronic pop music make a incredibly nasty combination, there are some good lyrics which are ruined with the rest of the song/album. Marina is one of my favorite singers but this is a dissapointment. Fortunately, with "Froot" she changed this horrendous style. Primadonna girl, yeah, all I ever wanted is ruin my image... Expand
