But yeah seriously, I've kind of fallen back in love with this. If you put the slight fake wokeness and occasionally cringy lyrics aside, this is a fun pop album and who ever said an album needs to be more than that to be great?

I really dig this thing. The energy in her vocals is different and avant-garde; this quality basically carried the entire album for me. Although some tracks didn't really stick with me, I enjoyed a big majority of the tracks here. Maybe some songs have some cringe-worthy lyrics and messages, but I really enjoyed the creative melodies enough.

Um dos maiores destaques do Indie Pop da década, Marina soube muito bem aproveitar o espaço que lhe foi dado. E é cumprindo com a proposta de entregar um dos melhores álbuns do gênero, ela passa a servir como inspiração para artistas iniciantes que pretendem um dia ter um álbum como 'The Family Jewels', com ótimas composições e um senso único que apenas Marina consegue trazer me suas obras.

Um ótimo disco indie pop, a sonoridade é única, incrível e cativante. Todas as músicas são ótimas, não tem um filler se quer.
