I can see why people might like it, I just don't. It's not just that it's consistent, it's consistent and stale. Only a few tracks bring anything new to the table.
Which I understand. That's not a crazy thing to say (directed at the Diamonds). Only some of Marina's tracks bring something new to the table, whereas Lana brings a whole new sound. However, her albums is so gelatinous that, in my opinion, it equals out.
Don't get me wrong, BTD is a great album, both vocally and musically, but Electra Heart seems to have a much better story to tell. They're both albums that talk about love, but EH's just has a more interesting one to follow.
LANA DEL REY | MARINA | ONEREPUBLIC | SCISSOR SISTERS
ONE DIRECTION | KE$HA
ELLIE | FLORENCE | GOSSIP | LITTLE MIX | TAYLOR SWIFT | AZEALIA BANKS | TAKE THAT | IMAGINE DRAGONS | NICOLA ROBERTS | JESSIE J | KE$HA | GAGA | NATALIA KILLS | P!NK | ADAM LAMBERT
I don't even know where to start. First of all, the concept of a lolita refers to an extremely influential novel published in 1955. It is no musician's "concept" to claim. I doubt you even get the literary references in Electra Heart either.
I'm guessing you never read Valley of the Dolls...That one is pretty obvious.
edit: nvm, I thought you were saying there are none in EH.
