    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.
  4. 50
    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.

That being said, this album is far from terrible, but overall is a grand disappointment when relating it what was to Marina’s near perfect debut album, 2009’s '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
