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

Amazing!

Very beautiful music! I read about her in People, and she does remind me of Regina Spektor, who I also love. Lots of upbeat, happy songs, and her accent adds a nice quirky tone to it. Foreign pop just seems superior to U.S. I love her voice...she will definitely be going on my iPod! :) Her songs just make me want to get up and dance!

I have cried over how wonderful this is.

I can not stop humming this at school and people are either very cheerful after being around me or give me very strange looks... Ya. Anyways, I am so satisfied with my purchase!! It's so good! My favorites are 'Don't Let Me Fall' and 'We Will Not Grow Old' because Don't Let Me Fall is so clever and catchy and We Will Not Grow Old reminds me of my very best friend who moved to Cali, and my other best friend and how distance doesn't mean anything to us, we will overcome the adolescent world. I think this sends a positive message out to any teen or tweenager out there with struggles. Lenka, you inspire me!

Sweet and cute

i looove this album because the sound is really sweet and cute and fun and stuff. i hope that she gets really big in the industry and beats the jonas brothers cuz their music isnt as good as lenka's. :)

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...
