Lorde-Pure Heroine

Rating: 8/10

There can be a lot said about the seventeen year old new music artist from New Zealand, who is making a name for herself in the music industry. With her debut charting album dropping before she turned seventeen, Lorde (Ella Yelich-O’Connor) should be more than confident in her music as she describes in one of her songs “I may be young, but I am coming for the crown”. There are a lot of good things I can say about Lorde and her music, but I what I found most impressive about her, is that she is  genuinely having fun with her music. Yes, this is her first album, and as well she should have fun, but Lorde seems to let her upbringings and life’s experiences take over her music, instead of it being forced. Her witty,young soul and energetic lyrics, backed by strong instrumentation,help uplift her voice through every song. Her music has a mix of art pop,grime,alternative, and even hip hop, which I quickly realized by the pulsating drums, kicks, which be be heard on some of her songs. Oh, and one of her favorite artist is Lana Del Rey which gives her more brownie points. I would also like to point out she isn’t screaming and crying over love ballads like other artist,like Taylor Swift to mention. Don’t get me wrong Swift is a great artist, but how many times is she going to let a faulted relationship determine most of her music.I don’t buy music much, but when I do its for  substantial reasons. Key songs on the album include, Tennis Courts, Glory and Glore, Royals, A World Alone, Still Sane, White Teeth Teens, Team, Buzzcut Season, Ribs, and 400 Lux. Wow! I just named every song on the album. See what I mean.

    1. First I would like to thank you for visiting my page and commenting but I have to disagree with you on the music album review. I read your argument and it seems like you have discredited Lorde because she is a a young artist with confidence. (“Hey! I’m 17 and a musician, I’m so talented!” which in the end kicks her out of the category of serious musicians looking for development in their craft.) So your saying that 17 year old musicians cant be confident. In regards to her album, her music is fresh and new. I thought her album was well put together because albums these days tend to be mixed together with fill in songs without actually showcasing any originality. All her songs are experiences of hers in her homeland and can appeal to a range of audience. I thought your rating was a bit harsh and predetermined on her EP songs. Regardless I think 5/10 is really low rating. Her charisma, and not to mention her lightning buzz in the music at a young age on her first album, should automatically boost her album rating well about a 5 rating. None the less I love your argument and I hope you visit my page more and we can discuss more music in the future.
