    release date?

    Ultrasubversive knows the album release date and the lead single, but he's not gonna leak everything. The album is being released in January, I think.

    Random TFJ/EH campaign stuff

    Thought some might find this interesting: The art campaign for The Family Jewels was conceptually based on artwork Richard Bernstein had done for ‘interview’ magazine and when the ad agency, Big Active, explained the idea, the label executives said ‘no’ to the idea because the album ‘X’ by Kylie Minogue had come out and they felt it was too similar (Look up the album cover if you aren’t familiar with it). Not knowing what they would do instead they went ahead and ordered a photo shoot with Rankin with the simple art direction of ‘no makeup and no hair’ (well, obviously with hair, but without product or styling in it). They wanted a blank canvas to work from. After the photos came back the artist Mat Maitland attempted to create some collages with the photos but ‘nothing worked’ so he said fuck it, and did what he wanted anyway. And thankfully marina loved the idea and fought for the concept. The label had no idea if Marina and the album/singles were going to be successful at the time. She had only released two small singles with neon gold, and they were very protective over how they launched her image. With Electra Heart, Big Active is credited with the artwork but they ‘were brought in at the last minute’ because the record execs hated the direction the marketing was going so Mat Maitland was essentially tasked with just completing work others had started with very little input into the creative process leading up to it. The concept idea from Marina was ‘faded Hollywood glamor’ but right when they were working on things Lana Del Rey broke into the scene with a similar esthetic leaving the executives frustrated again.

    The concert itself was amazing, although I did not have a pleasant experience with people around me in the crowd.

    Emotional Machine

    Sorry but I fucking hate it! So boring and the chorus is absolutely tragic. Where are the bops with great lyrics Merna? Bish, where???

    Have you done any drugs?

    Not really. I don't plan on doing any ever... They are stupid addictions imo, I rather spend my money with other things.

    I actually liked the production, I bet it will sound 10 times better after being officially released. But I hated the lyrics, they are terrible imo.

    Emotional Machine

    The lyrics are truly tragic... I still like the rhythm a lot. A slow bop.

    Was also underwhelmed by EM, and agree with the hope that it might've just been lack of a live band/production. That said, I quite enjoyed the Froot intro, and the dancers in the beginning; thought it added a nice little ambience, and with the neon lighting in the background, I'm wondering if this'll be the aesthetic she'll be going for in future performances. I also noticed how she sang certain songs a bit differently, like with "Obsessions," which was a pleasant surprise. I'm actually excited to see the direction she's going for next.

    Emotional Machine

    *** This judgment may be hypercritical and harsh. Don't take it personally, thanks. *** I wouldn't say Emotional Machine is necessarily a bad song, but I didn't like it. It's been a while since I don't feel like a Marina fan anymore too. After almost 4 years of waiting for new consistent Marina releases, I can say the song sounds boring and even if I'm not a nazi about lyrical song content, the overall sense seems pointless and disengaged to me. It's hard to see that you wanna be free 'cause I don't love you in the way that you want me to // Did you ever love me? Or are you just too scared to be free? — See how these two parts are practically in contradiction with each other: first, she says that her supposed loved one wants to be free and she doesn't love them in a way they want to, but then she asks if the partner is scared to be free and if they ever loved her... what? Does that mean that the partner will become 'free' if they love her or... I don't know? I don't get it. (I'm) An emotional being since I was a teen — What does that even mean? It literally screams "I recycled old ideas because I need to get back Teen Idle fake depressed goths fans that post about Electra Heart on Tumblr all day". In general, the song sounds like she mixed up I'm A Ruin, Forget & Disconnect. The chorus feels dragged and the verses sound forced because of syllabic irregularities. The vocals sound monotonous and slow. I'll wait for the studio version for a final judgment, but, from what we've heard so far (M4 leaks + Disconnect), I really think Marina is losing inspiration.

    i didnt like it, found it very flat and dull, the verses were very short and the chorus lazy. the second half of the song was significantly better than the first half, i enjoyed her vocals on the bridge and that last chorus with the added lyrics was much better, but overall it's a no from me. the studio version will obviously be better but i dont have high hopes tbh and i am annoyed with her coz she had posted a different snippet(which i loved) with the caption "emotional machine" but now it turns out she trolled us

    I don’t like live versions and they really did a bad job at this one tbh, FATM live version’s of her 1000 something was way better a live debut than this one. The song itself is kinda lazy writing wise but I hope the production makes up for it Also why the fuck didn’t they professionally record this one or give out the mic feed? Like every time Florence says hi on a microphone shit gets uploaded on an a Brazilian fanpage

    yeah em was a little odd, hopefully the studio version is godly.

    my first thought after seeing her backup dancers + choreo was "wow larina is real huh gays" other than that, she sounded great! and although i didn't like a quarter of the setlist (HTBAHB, BB, and im a little tired of primadonna @ this point honestly) i really won't complain bc it's the first time she's been on stage in years and those are the songs the majority of the fanbase likes to hear at concerts im a little underwhelmed by EM, idk if it's because it takes a while for shit to sink in with me (i hated venice bitch for 3 days after its release and now i play it everyday), or because the live production was lacking. however, songs tend to sound different when performed live so im hoping its not that. and the lyrics were pretty good, it seemed like a mix of i'm a ruin + savages (with the god lyric) + teen idle + living dead. and i feel like this era will emphasize her vocals more....like kinda expand off of froot
