Album Review

Those looking to satisfy a sweet-toothed craving for pop music should sink their teeth into this debut, which introduces Lenka as one of 2008's strongest newcomers. Horns, cellos, violas, keyboards, and vibraphones share equal space here, creating a sound that's at once lushly elegant and bubbly commercial. Having already cut her teeth with the Decoder Ring, Lenka now asserts herself as a competent vocalist and songwriter, penning three of the album's tracks while co-writing the remaining eight. "The Show," "Bring Me Down," and "Trouble Is a Friend" all brim with the cleverly crafted hooks of a Max Martin composition, and Lenka's fondness for internal rhyme helps tighten her phrases into concentrated balls of pop melody. The results are pure radio gold, perhaps alarmingly so, but Lenka's voice helps bring a sense of playfulness to what might otherwise be an exercise in all too perfect pop music. Singing in her endearing Australian accent, she shifts between the breathy sighs of "Don't Let Me Fall" and the measured, innocent confidence of "Like a Song." Quiet piano chords and a sparse trumpet riff provide the instrumental backing for the latter tune, and "Like a Song" shows that Lenka still shines when the thick instrumental padding is stripped away, making this candy-coated debut that much sweeter.

Customer Reviews

Pretty Schweet.

Pure alternative pop at it's best. If you're thinking she looks familiar, it may be because she used to be on that kids morning show on channel ten a while back called Cheez-TV as a semi-presenter and sign language girl in the corner of the screen. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then don't worry, just listen to the album - it's pretty good, with an almost Feist-like quality to her voice and music style in places.

Best album I have heard in the 16 years of me living!!!

Every single one of her songs in this album are excellent, very catchy, upbeat and great to dance to. Best 3 songs: The Show, Trouble is a Friend, Dangerous and Sweet This album seemed to "know the way to turn my frown, upside down"

pure to the ears

this music is perfect to listen to it has a calming sense to it-perfect for a chill out session or just listening to on your way to work this music is purely joyful and it makes any day seem twice as happy

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Taking a break from her duties as vocalist and keyboardist for Australia's Decoder Ring, songwriter Lenka Kripac relocated to Los Angeles and began crafting eclectic, atmospheric pop songs under her forename. Her solo material took its cues from artists like Jem and Björk, with Lenka pitting her breathy vocals against landscapes of electronic drumbeats, horns, and twinkling piano. A former child actor who'd studied under Cate Blanchett, she also brought a sense of theatricality to her music, and...
