I wasn't a fan of her album...its all a bit bland especially when compared to Marina's album which is full of character!

I think for now I'll skip it but maybe after a few more singles when I can see what she's all about I might change my mind!

I did judging by the previews. I bought the album the other day when the store I work at leaked it early and it's truly fantastic. The songs are like depression clouded by happiness, hard to explain but I love what I am hearing :)

I like it. It's not a strong album as I thought it'd be, but when she gets it right, it's pretty damn good.

Her iTunes exclusive song is amazing. It should have been on the album.

Ellie's album is shit. Boring as, completely lacking in any personality, no sign that it is HER album. Just awful, and crap lyrics that you could find in a Saturdays song. :/

Marina shits all over her, let's face it. Ellie is the same league as Little Boots in terms of blandness.

I disagree :lol: How can you compare a singer/songwriter to that of the Saturdays? :o The lyrics are (IMO) are far from crap :spit: If you actually listen you may also discover that. There are actually quite a few brilliant metaphors. I honestly don't understand how anyone can find it bland, although I do agree you really need to listen to enjoy it. One thing I don't like I can actually hear Frankmusiks input in the album :hysteric:

Umm, I have listened. I would hardly make an opinion on it without listening, would I? Think you should drop the condescending attitude... o_O

Perhaps "crap" was the wrong word to describe the lyrics - they are a step above most disposable pop, yes. But they're dull and very pedestrian about simple subject matters. I just don't see any personality or any of Ellie in them, which is what I meant by my previous comment. Some people may enjoy them, but it's just not for me really. I look for a bit more in the lyrics than that, and Marina's lyrical style is much more for me (obviously the comparisons between them are bound to happen for obvious reasons ;))

But yes, I shouldn't have called them crap or awful. It was probably my disappointment in the album really showing through.

Just back from Belfast show! Ellie was fantastic, very cute and a bit shy :lol: I was at the VERY front literally inches from her. Her voice is gorgeous and so much more than it is on 'Lights'. She's like Florence, she shits over her recorded stuff with her live performances. Amazing on the drums :hearts: I got her personal set-list :inlove: She wrote on it and counted the songs wrong :sobbing: I also got a drumstick but some asshole from her crew snatched it off the security guard as he was giving it to me saying 'She needs that'.

Ellie covered Hanging On of Active Child with Tinie Tempah: http://soundcloud.com/elliegoulding/hanging-on-ft-tinie-tempah

I love her vocal delivery, but god, the part that Tinie raps bugs me so hard.

She said on Facebook it's the beginning of her new journey, so the new album is near :cheer: I'm so excited, but also a bit scared, cuz first this song with tinie, she's in the studios with Calvin Harris ... I know she has always brought mainstream pop, but I hope she won't get too mainstream.

Yeah I'm surprised it took so long to get popular. Considering the rise of electronica/dance music, I thought it would've been faster since a lot of producers and DJ's were using a lot of samples from her songs. It was popular among the rave group, but took a while to jump the hurdle into the general public.

What does everyone think? I love it! Tracks 2-5 alone are better than the entirety of Lights.

The one track I didn't immediately like, Explosions, has finally grown on me, so yeah, I absolutely love it. I love that she didn't try to make the most catchy hooks and such, but instead tried to create an atmosphere.

Ohh I love Explosions. :hearts: The only song I haven't gotten into yet is Don't Say a Word. And I was so used to the single edit of Anything Could Happen that it's taking a while to get used to the album version. Only You is so dancey; I love to jam out to it. And I absolutely love Halcyon. I really relate to the lyrics.

Yeah. That's what I realised too. Tracks 2-5 just scream of "awards".

But I really hate Joy.

A great album. Dead In The Water, Atlantis, Joy and I Know You Care are alright though. Other 13 Songs = Love. Absolute Love.

And I agree, it is taking some getting used to album version of Anything Could Happen.

It seems on ATRL a lot of people didn't like Joy at first, but it's a grower. I haven't really heard enough of it yet to have an opinion.

I am kind of over Hanging On though. Maybe it's because I prefer the original. Not sure. And I hope I Know You Care is a grower because I really didn't like it the first time I heard it.

If I had a choice I'd remove Don't Say a Word, Joy, I Know You Care for the three bonus tracks. :tape:
It's just too sappy for me, and I'm really an emo guy too.

I haven't heard the bonus tracks yet. I didn't see any Deluxe versions for sale (not that I could have afforded it anyway). :tears: The CD I bought has the Calvin Harris song (I am not a fan of him) and Lights as bonus tracks.

I love how you can listen to the whole thing without wanting to skip a track. I Know You Care has even grown on me. Not many singer/songwriters make such a drastic improvement from their debut but Ellie is firmly in that camp. :inlove:

The title track is the standout for me though. I love how it addresses the sadness of the end of a relationship but also the optimism that can come out of that as well.

Speak for yourself, gurl. There are a number of wack tracks on this album that I can not listen to. But the good ones make up for it.

I wanted to ask as well. Is this girl okay? You know, mentally? She seems based on her voice anyways a bit special.

It's probably my favorite too. I wish it was longer.


I'm a bit disappointed she didn't get that UK #1 but there are lots of good/popular albums coming out now ... It it seems like her promotion is more centered about the US anyway.

If you bothered to listen to any of her interviews you could answer that question for yourself. She's perfectly normal.

I thought the performance on Ellen was OK, but the one on Jimmie Fallon (I think) was much better. She did an acoustic of ACH somewhere in Germany and that was just fab.

I like her voice lots but the sterile electro-pap that's often used as the backing tracks isn't my thing. On youtube I listen to her acoustic performances which I prefer much.

She is going to rerelease Halcyon, entitled "Halcyon Days", and includes this gem.

Another song was also on Skins Fire

Yeah, Leona recorded a demo earlier but she let it pass (stupid decision if you ask me). It does say Ellie is a co-writer ... I don't mind her trying a song she didn't write herself, it's just a bit strange considering most of her lyrics are good to amazing. I think she really wants another hit single so she doesn't become a one hit wonder in the US... If it's as fun as Burn I really don't mind though.

You, My Everything is a real grower. Loving it now.

Jul 9th, 2013, 02:43 PM
Yeah, the Leona version irks me. I like the fact Leona is doing more upbeat tone, but I feel like Burn is more for Ellie.

You, My Everything is vintage Ellie and just watching Skins and listening to the song makes me feel emotional :hysteric:

Burn is the only song I found which is good in her new album.

She should go back to her old music like Guns and Horses and The Writer.
