MARINA (and The Diamonds)

Recommended Posts

85% of L&F is filler, wbk. i def think she attempted a more mainstream sound with this album and failed majorly since the only songs i wouldn't consider filler are the ones with darker tones (save for handmade heaven). orange trees is honestly one of the worst songs i have heard in a while.

Emotional Machine is the only song from L+F that I still listen to, the rest is really forgettable :/ BUT the live shows to support that album were amazing! Can't wait to see her live again but with this new material :rollin:

Anyone else feel like alot of the tracks on L+F are fillers?

Like Enjoy Your Life, Orange Trees, Life Is Strange, No More Suckers.

 

Orange Trees is the worst song of her entire career.

Her live shows are always great. Totally worth the money. She always looks gorgeous too. The effort. :xcry:

orange trees is better than to be human

yeah, orange trees just feels like it was made to be orange trees... to be human feels like it was made to be Savages part 2 and failed miserably lmfao

I feel like Orange Trees would be a lot better if the “OoO0oOooOorange” part was mixed differently? Maybe lower in the mix, or more harmonies for it, or just sung in a different register? It sounds like someone who can’t sing, but we know Marina can sing very well. 
 

it’s a cute song, the delivery is just off imo

I generally agree that there is something offputting about L+F that begs to be analyzed. I mean 8 metacritic reviews down from 19 on FROOT seems pretty weird (or stupid as in "she changed her band name so let's consider her a new artist" BS).  The songs (e.g., BIL, EOTE, HH) are not that bad, even when compared with FROOT, so overall, L+F is like a B to Froot's A (imo). However, the singing does seem different, though I still love her voice. To me L+F singing seems emotionally flattened around lyrics where you might have expected higher emotional response. As it was a surprise to me that she dealt with (or came out about) depression between FROOT and L+F, maybe this was her "mood-flattenning-drugs" concept album.

 

One thing you can do, if you are tired of the album as presented (e.g. think most of it is filler) is to interleave tracks (i.e., make the "love" tracks, starting with HH, odd and the "fear" tracks even). For me, this spreads out the quality of the songs (I liked "fear" more), and the transitions seem to make more sense, and not in a manic/depressive roller-coaster way, but in some of the production choices (orange trees, you) and "philosophical" stances seeming to pair up (Baby, Karma; Enjoy Your Life, Emotional Machine).

I noticed this as well. L+F seems to be mostly sung in a high, airy head voice and it's lacking those deep, powerful vocals she gave us on her other albums. She plays with her voice a lot less these days.
