    My ratings for "Love":

    "Handmade Heaven": 7.5/10
    It sounds like a typical Marina song, which is obviously not a bad thing. I like it, though I got over it rather quickly. Also, I think there would've been smarter lead single choices than this.

    "Superstar": 7/10
    This is a grower, at least for me it was one. I thought it was pretty bland after the first listen, but I enjoy it now. Imo the chorus is kind of a letdown after the brilliant pre-chorus, though.

    "Orange Trees": 5.5/10
    I don't know, this one just does nothing for me. It's not terrible or anything, but it's so painfully basic and bland.

    "Baby": 7/10
    It's basic, but at least it's a really catchy bop. It would've deserved to be a hit.

    "Enjoy Your Life": 8.5/10
    Well, this is simply a very nice, catchy pop tune. I love the chorus.

    "True": 8/10
    I really like this one as well, it bops so hard imo.

    "To Be Human": 9/10
    This one is amazing and it feels the most Marina-ish on the whole record. Musically it kinda reminds me of "Immortal". Both have a similar atmosphere imo.

    "End of the Earth": 5/10
    I've listened to this one several times now, because I thought it would be a grower, but I still don't really like it. It's listenable, but that's it.

    Strangely, I mostly prefer the album tracks to the singles (while for most people it seems to be the other way around, from what I've read), though I like the singles as well (except for "Orange Trees"). Overall, I'm definitely not disappointed with "Love" and I can't wait to hear "Fear".

    To give this some credit, it is a grower and the songs are lights and catchy but not fodder. Some of the songs do feel like they could’ve been recorded by any of the current ‘Up & Coming’ spotify type artists but let’s see how this stands up after a few months

    Not feeling the video, finding it a bit cheesy. The song is lovely, but reminds me too much of Handmade Heaven, which just feels like she's recycling the same thing in two songs on the album. The lyrics are definitely among the better ones on the album, but still something feels a bit... I don't know how to explain. Like a downgrade from her previous lyrics.

    All that sad, the ending is stunning and her vocals from 3:20 onwards are orgasmic.

    Personally I think the song could do without a video. It’s a proper statement song that would have benefited from a captivating concept rather than a collage of video shots.

    Keep the video as it doesn’t add anything to the song.

    The idea of the music video is nice, but the execution could have been better

    I am disappointed with Love so I'm really hoping Fear does it for me, I've yet to not love a Marina album so hopefully it'll grow on me!

    She delivered for me. Among her best work.

    The four new tracks are great. To Be Human and Handmade Heaven might become some of my favorites from her.

    I don’t like Orange Trees thus far.

    Baby is great but I don’t need it on the album.

    Great she’s releasing songs so often and always snatching New Music Friday playlists instead of releasing the whole album altogether and having no effect.

    Cheap budget, obviously. But it keeps the streams coming on YouTube.

    So Love is far from Froot levels but as a package I like what I hear. Handmade Heaven has finally hit me big time now!

    Orange Trees is amazing. Best song she released since Froot.

    I am still hoping that FEAR might blow me away. Didn't happen with LOVE. However, I was overall pleased contrary to other forum members.

    It looks like an ATRL member was able to buy the whole vinyl in an indie store in the UK

    Ok I take back what I said about the album being meh. Yes the songwriting is subpar compared to her previous work but the whole album just clicked with me. It is meant to be a carefree pop record and once I accepted that, I definitely fell in love with it.

    This is definitely a grower.

    I’m very intrigued as to why we didn’t get a single Fear preview track! It makes me excited for next Friday!!

    Handmade Heaven and To Be Human are my two absolute favorites! Those two tracks are beyond epic; for some reason they remind me of a perfect mixture made from elements found in best of enya, dido and roxette’s 90s Music

    I’m so excited for this album, i kinda think this will my favorite album of 2019! I keep watching her video introduction clip to her new album! Gosh i love that 2 minutes clip very much

    Both tracks move towards absolute perfection after their first choruses. For reasons i have to watch both videos back to back and I often find myself in tear after watching them; i love both of these videos very much, both are direct and perfectly in line with the songs’ lyrics.

    To Be Human has really grown on me the last few days! It is really similar to Immortal but definitely holds its own and is a lot catchier.

    Life Is Strange sounds like Electra Heart and Family Jewels had a baby.
    Loving the snippet!

    Me too! And yeah, it sounds more like her old stuff than anything from Love.

    More clips from Fear there - it sounds impressive. Believe In Love is nice and dark.

    Just noticed that Broods co-composed one track and Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey / Bat For Lashes) another! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_%2B_Fear

    I’ve only caught the snippet of TOO AFRAID which does not sound too different from LOVE.

    Love is extremely disappointing. I only like Handmade Heaven (and even that took a long time to grow on me).
    I can't believe Marina has released a bad record.
