She's still on a major, then.

Who do you prefer - Marina or Electra?

Marina of course.

Electra was a nice little project and thankfully it ended. The look was interesting, and she was pretty, but her real self is more naturally beautiful.

Electra Heart was not only musically a letdown but also for her Looks.

Marina >>>>

I Am Not A Robot, Shampain, Are You Satisfied, Numb, Guilty, Seventeen and Hermit The Frog s*** on the stuff that followed.

EDIT: Oh. And also Obsessions + The Outsider

I prefer her natural look. Blonde doesn't do it as much for me.

That whole album (TFJ) is just so superb. I can't wait for the next one. Froot sounds so promising. Reminds me of Numb a little bit, and I LOVE Numb.

It didn't do too much to me either... During her first era, she reminded me a lot of Kate Nash for some reason.

:o As a fan of both, I see absolutely no resemblance! Aside from both being from the UK. Marina's first album was a really unique combination of catchy/pop and alternative music, with brilliant tongue-in-cheek lyrics masked by the cheery melodies. Actually reminded me a bit of Kate Bush because of the more theatrical-sounding songs like Mowgli's Road.

Electra was just a good pop album, nothing more. I still enjoy it a lot, but most of it doesn't give me the cathartic effect like stuff on her debut.

If I had to compare female artists (which I'm not too fond of), I'd sooner group Kate Nash with Lily Allen or maybe slightly Regina Spektor.

Yes!!! Amazing song, but it desperately needs remastering. And re-releasing on an album. The production sounds too amateurish/garageband, like her debut "album" from the MySpace days.

^ love that performance and that note! she does that thing often in the Robot performances actually, love it every time. and I love the final ''robot'' in this one, the way it goes a bit up in a sad way

yess, probably the best thing she's ever done lyrically and production-wise and everything-wise. it sounds so majestic

have to admit that's the only EH bonus track I'm not fond of. it's not bad tho, I just almost never get the urge to listen

but Buy the Stars and Lonely Hearts Club are divine
