Starts off great, drags a bit towards the middle but really brings it back in the end (referring to the Deluxe Edition). It's a bit of a shame that some of the best tracks are bonus, though.

It's clear here that Marina is after her peers and lyrically surfacing many of their faults such as emphasis on image over talent and subject matter that is questionable for the young fans that their music draws in. Marina tackles the subject with finesse and clear passion and bringing a topical concept into the lyricism but, alas, who hasn't talked about this already? Tell me something I don't know Marina. The musical arrangements aren't too far from her peers either though laced with more detail and edgier instrumentation; it still makes for something surfaced and unappealing to me, personally. It's not that Marina isn't talented and Electra Heart wasn't carefully though out; it's that Marina is so certain about her anti-ego and image and concept of the album that there is little here I feel is her speaking directly. She's more of an anti-star then a person here.

4.0 excellentSupertails | August 13th 12

It's not "The Family Jewels", but why does it have to be? Marina's huge shift in style scared me at first, but after hearing the album I was more than satisfied. Change is only bad when it's not done well. This change was done very well.rThe most fascinating thing about this album is the story it tells. A lot of the songs are satirical (such as 'Primadonna') and a lot more straightforward (like 'Living Dead' or 'Teen Idle'), but all of them have a story. The record takes on love from about 10 different angles and every one is interesting to hear.r'Bubblegum Bitch' is glorious pop-punk, 'Primadonna' flits between minimalism and all-out electro, much of 'Homewrecker' is spoken-word...it's amazing how there's not one single style consistent through the album and how well it meshes. Despite the negative reviews, "Electra Heart" is more than it seems to be.

4.0 excellentArchelaos | April 26th 12

Oh the wasted years! The wasted youth! Marina's new album is destined to be huge in the realm of pop, even though it doesn't really step outside of the genre's conventions. Vocally, Marina harnesses a lot of sentimentality via meticulous production and beats so infectious they'll nestle in and get stuck in your head for weeks on end. Marina's commentary on the many subjects covered on Electra Heart is apt, conscientious, and refreshing. From the psychoanalysis on "Fear and Loathing" to the devilishly clever play-on-words-title of "Teen Idle," a song revealing an adolescent life as wasted on idle fancies, Electra Heart is an album imbued with honesty, passion, and whimsy, and I'm all ears.
