    Lorde is so good. So clean and refreshing. Plus those lyrics thoooo! I can't wait for the album, I'm also sad that TLC didn't make it!

    I was strongly anticipating this album but then I got so sick of playing Royals to death, it's made me a bit nauseous by now, and the beat in Team doesn't help. It's the kickdrum used to form the beat that's given me this ailment, I hope the entire album doesn't use the same drumming arrangement!

    After the first listen I can call it the best release of 2013.

    400 Lux sounds more alternative than the rest of her songs, I like it, the structure of the song isn't very defined and the productions sounds cool and edgy.

    Ribs doesn't impress me that much, but it's good. Similar to the verses in Tennis Court. It sounds like an Ellie Goulding song.

    Buzzcut Season is good, the production sounds almost like a Drake song.

    In Glory and Gore her voice sounds a little bit different, more mature and powerful. Lana Del Rey vibes in the heavy hip hop-influenced production, not very far from Tennis Court, probably just a little less instant.

    Still Sane sounds like a filler, but once again is very decent, extremely minimalist.

    White Teeth Teens sounds good, it has a little more "oomph" compared to the other songs, probably because of the loud drums.

    A World Alone is a great closing track, a little bit faster during the chorus.

    OVERALL

    I feel like this album is a lot more polished and slow than Lana's Born to Die. It's not a problem for me, but it will probably be a problem for many others. Don't expect another Royals, and it's clear that Tennis Court and Team are the closest things to an uptempo in the album. It's a good debut album, but I'm quite sure it will be re-released very early, or probably followed by another album. Smart choice to have just 10 songs and such a short album (37 minutes), considering the very samey production. At the end, Lorde didn't disappoint me at all: good job, my favourite new artist of 2013.

    It's a 7.5/10 for the album.

    A bit disappointed on the first listen.

    Apart from White Teeth Teens and the singles, I'm not looking forward to replaying the album. Still Sane is horrible.

    Listening now...

    Glory & Gore does have that LDR vibe about it, but in a different way to Tennis Court, so I agree with Lollo there. I don't mind it. I like the sound of the last verse, I was vibing along to it.
    Really like the opening to A World Alone. Decent closer, but it goes on for a bit too long IMO. A minute less would've been better.
    Buzzcut Season is alright.
    Quite like Ribs, or at least what I heard of it.
    Ooh loving the edgy vibe of 400 Lux!
    Still Sane seems like a filler tune, so I shall agree with you there. Its not that crap, but that said, I doubt I'll be back for a repeat listen and it is the worst song on the album.
    White Teeth Teens is good! Change of pace from the downtempo of the majority of the album.

    OVERALL THOUGHTS
    Gimme a few months to fully take this in, then I'll get back to you about how I feel about this album. I didn't really have expectations, even though I adore the first 2 singles and am on my way to liking Team again. This will get lapped up by the indie/alt kids though.

    Based on first play, I like this a lot. Great debut album! I have to agree that Still Sane is by far my least favorite, it's a filler.

    Oh, and I love Team now.

    It's okay, Ribs and Buzzcut Season + singles are great, others are listenable.

    lol the album leak has nothing to do with her being overrated, my friend (and his friend) have been doing the most since June

    Don't let them ruin Lorde for you, check the album, you might like it. I barely know anyone who has heard of her.
