      • I love her answer, she's definitely not going for the mainstream business puppet kind of artist who is in it for the sales and marketing hype.

        • This is definitely one of my favorite albums from the decade.

          Just absolutely amazing. Not one bad song.
          I still don't understand how she was able going from this masterpiece to the tragic that is her sophomore album. What happened?

            Few things are more dire than the lyrical scribbling of 16-year-olds, as my own buried marble notebooks can surely attest. But New Zealand teen Lorde manages to be both precocious and perceptively relevant on her debut album, a portrait of desiccated youth. Full of strikingly concise, surprisingly mature pop songs, Pure Heroine conveys the exhaustion of growing up in a hall of mirrors, the usual difficulties of identity formation further confused by the hollow expectations of a fame-obsessed, copycat culture. There’s nothing inherently groundbreaking here, the sort of rebellion that’s been into practice put by teen-pop artists for decades, but rarely have those proclamations been issued with such impressive articulation and grace.

              Lorde was a singular figure in the 2010s. She was one of a handful of solo women who broke through the decidedly all-male ranks of alt-rock radio and forced the format to shift its sound to make room for her, making her the first solo woman in 17 years to have a No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. In her wake, a jillion men writing lo-fi synth-rock albums have followed the work she created as a 16-year-old girl. Her version of middle-class youth wraps the confusion and disenchantment it brings with witty twists of phrase that only a wordsmith could ever parse.

              • Just revisited some songs here and remembered how good this album is. For some reason I still can't remember half of Melodrama, but this one kinda made an imprint on me. Even though I rarely play it now, it's still good when I do.
