  1. Despite its faults, it is one of the most unique albums released by a major label in 2008.
  2. The formulas employed throughout Love Is Dead are often trite but the undeniable excitement and awe with which she approaches them is just as frequently refreshing.
  3. Although her songs occasionally feature the alto piano of Apple or the otherworldly trilling of Morissette or Björk, her voice can sound thin and inconsistent, giving the whole thing a somewhat derivative feel.

    Unfortunately, it translates into kohl-eyed pantomime, rather than cathartic music, with lyrics so hopelessly trite they sound like a feel-good tract for preschoolers.

    One of my favourite albums. She really has talent. This album is beautiful and hopeful and full of good songs. Kerli has taken inspiration for this album from likes of Björk (Love Is Dead, Fragile) and Natasha Bedingfield (Beautiful Day). There are few mis-steps like Butterfly Cry, but all the other songs are good. My favourite songs from the album are; Bulletproof, Love Is Dead, Fragile, Walking On Air, Beautiful Day and Hurt Me.
