    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.

    Marina and the diamonds used the pop in his favor, got together with feeling and deep lyrics with a pop production and accurate.

    Electra heart is an intelligent pop album, cohesive and a great singer behind it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. There are plenty of songs that define the definition of pop, such as the flawless "Primadonna". But there are also a few songs that seem very mellowed out, i.e., "Fear and Loathing". I just recently listened to this album and I overall believe Marina will crack the US with her pop songs very soon! Expand

    Electra Heart is full of hooks and some high lyrical points. However, some songs feel like they were thrown together compared to others. 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

    Sorry, but this is crap. Too generic for a singer who used to call Kesha's, Katy's or Rihanna' music **** Electra Heart is a lower version ofSorry, but this is crap.
