Marina & The Diamonds - Electra Heart

According to Marina, this is a concept album about the failings of the American Dream and the emptiness of modern life, but really it’s an electro-pop record that ditches much of the quirkiness that endeared the Greek/Welsh singer to her fans. The album may well gain her greater success, and Marina’s mellifluous voice is still a wonderful instrument, but  her early individuality and experimentation has been ditched somewhere along the line, and that is a shame.
