iTunes Review

Welsh singer/songwriter Marina Diamandis commands the spotlight from the opening track “Are You Satisfied?” onwards, alternately lusting after fame and recoiling from its trappings. Her elastic vocal presence — capable of sweet trills and throaty lows — brings out the feverish elation and biting mockery of her lyrics. Along the way, the ultra-caffeinated grooves of “Girls”, “Oh No!”, “Mowgli’s Road” and “Shampain” grab at the body as well as tease the mind. Beyond the dazzling surface of these tunes, Marina is capable of dissecting twisted relationships (“Obsessions”, “Hermit the Frog”) or tossing off snarky satire (“Hollywood”) with a merciless touch. When not giving herself a pep talk, she is prone to brutal introspection, as “Guilty” shows. “I Am Not a Robot” deserves special praise for its cool shimmer and yearning heart. Taking cues from everyone from Kate Bush to Gwen Stefani and Kate Nash, The Family Jewels ultimately stands on its own thanks to Marina’s smart, self-aware songs and the album’s sleek, hard-pumping production. Straight up, this album is a gem.

Are you satisfied?

Yep!

amazing!

just a really genuinely good album - favourites include Numb, Guilty and Obsessions...but there is not a single filler song! love it love it love it!

Lives up to the hype

I'm proud to be able to say I've loved Marina since before I Am Not a Robot was first released, and her long awaited album certainly doesn't disappoint. Entering straight into the album chart at no.2, Hollywood all over the radio and her live shows selling out fast would annoy me with any other artist (I'm a bit of a music snob and tend to avoid chart music like the plague), but with Marina I'm just really proud of her!
I can honestly say there's not one song on the album I don't like, something I haven't been able to say about any album since Regina Spektor's Far nearly a near ago. I'm slightly disappointed by the amount of songs on the album I've already heard, but said songs are so fantastic, as are the new ones, that I can't hold it against her.
If I had to decide, my favourite songs at the moment are Girls, Are You Satisfied and The Outsider, as well as of course the fantastic single Hollywood (which one the album has a whole new verse!)
Well done Marina, you deserve your success!

Biography

Formed: 2005 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Marina and the Diamonds, really just Marina Diamandis, was born in 1986 to Welsh and Greek parents, although she has often claimed to be from Ancient Greece. After dropping out of four different music courses at four different universities, she decided to make her own way in music, and began writing left-field pop songs. Early on, she claimed that her inspirations were Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani -- who she often covered at live gigs -- but her songs have a soulful edge pointing to a deeper source...
