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 :)

Ellie's music is much more based in electronica, synths and such than Marina's, but they're both beautiful albums. Hope they can have successful careers, given the amount of mindless drivel out there at the moment

We've had this album on in our office today and I thought it was very bland. Disappointing when compared with last year's BBC Sound winner Little Boots, who is :worship:

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.

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.
