Candy-coated hooks that match her pop-diva ambitions
2010 | Label: Chop Shop/Atlantic

Like Florence and the Machine's Florence Welch and La Roux's Elly Jackson, Marina Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds got billed as another up-and-coming quirky British artist.

Yummy pop

The most original song is Mowgli's Road (check out the BBC vid on YouTube to hear her rich voice). Most tracks are fun pop, especially frothy 'Shampain', bitchy 'Hollywood' and 'Girls', and melancholy 'The Outsider' and 'Guilty'. 'Obsessions' and 'Numb' are lovely gaudy ballads. Sadly poppy 'Seventeen' replaces 'Rootless' which was on the UK ed. It would have been better to have knocked off a lesser track like 'Hermit the frog', silly 'Oh No!' or self-important 'Are you satisfied?'
