I can say without any hesitation that "The Family Jewels" is easily one of my favorite three albums of the last ten years. I still listen to it regularly. While I enjoyed "Electra Heart," I don't know that it necessarily worked as a concept album. There were some great moments, to be sure, but to me it felt a bit superficial, bit too slick, and kind of schizophrenic. Hat's off to her, however, for branching out, experimenting and defying expectation.

So here we are with her third album, "Froot," which sounds like a perfect mix of her first two. At first listen, it sounds very much like a return to her roots. The piano-driven opener, "Happy," is classic Marina, right up there with "Obsessions" and "I am not a Robot." I'm glad to see that dimension of her songwriting return. It's one of her best weapons and was sorely lacking on "Electra Heart." But there are also some stompers that wouldn't sound out of place alongside "Power and Control." Only this time the songs feel looser and more organic.

"Froot" also showcases what has always been her best strength - the outrageously infectious chorus. There are few, if any, that do it better. Practically every song begs for a sing-a-long. They're eminently hummable and memorable. "I'm a Ruin," "Blue," "Can't Pin Me Down," and "Better than That" are prime examples that should all be singles. (I think "Blue" is my favorite track at the moment - it reminds me a bit of "Oh No!"). Kudos, tdo, to co-producer David Kosten who brings some nice sonic touches to the proceedings - some harp, some guitar, and most importantly, harnessing all Marina's strengths.

I have been a fan of Marina since her Electra Heart Era (about 2 years), so I'm not some Marina expert. Nevertheless, I think the album is absolutely amazing, and it seems to really portray Marina's true feelings.

The first song, "Happy", is a nice and mellow song to start the album, setting the theme for the album. I think this song is absolutely amazing.
The next song "FROOT", however, takes a whole new term. It has a type of bubblegum and synthpop feeling to it, that for some reason, gave me nostalgia the first moment I heard it! It's chorus line
The fourth song "Blue", has the feeling of an electro-esque teenage break up anthem. I love it.

Basically, the first six tracks have a very bubble gum pop feel, which I guess some people will either love it or hate it; it somewhat has an Electra Heart atmosphere. However, the next 5 tracks have a very different feel, not exactly TFJ, not exactly EH, and not even FROOTY.

"Can't Pin Me Down", the 7th song and my favorite song from the whole album, is an amazing transition. Marina's cheekiness is really revealed here ("Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem/ When I'm happy cooking dinner in a kitchen for my husband"). Well, it's definitely a feminist anthem with an alt-rock feel.

"Solitaire", the eighth song, is the most unique in the album in my opinion (Savages following second). It has an entirely different feel from the whole album. Remember "Valley of the Dolls" and "Mowgli's Road"? Like those songs, Solitaire is probably the darkest song (mostly the album is seemingly optimistic though). It is a somber song.

"Weeds", the tenth song, is probably the most rockish sounding song of the whole album.

I have to give Marina kudos for this album. She wrote all the songs herself and worked with only one producer, giving the whole record a very organic and integral piece of work. You can tell she's grown as a performer and a songwriter over the past few years, and it's evident here. Her lyrics are brilliant, her melodies kooky and off the beaten path. Yet she manages to make a blend of indie and pop that's infectious and moving. The soft-spoken intro track, "Happy", is immediately followed by the synth-laden, 8-bit force of the title track, "FROOT" and the contrast is somehow less than jarring. Other highlights include the airy yet hard-hitting "I'm a Ruin", radio-friendly tunes like "Blue" and "Forget", and the cynical reflection on humanity, "Savages".

Froot is like the more polished love child of "The Family Jewels" and Electra Heart". Marina is a genius because she took the unique authenticity of her first album and combined it with the killer catchiness of her second, to make the magical Froot, a seriously great pop record that's both accessible but quirky enough to stand out amongst the crowd of other artists out there right now. She's unfailingly honest like she always has been, I think it's impossible to not relate to Marina; she puts a lot of thought and care into her lyrics, and it shows. By the way, she completely wrote this album on her own, and co produced it with one other producer. How many pop albums can you say that about? Froot is her best work yet, it comes across really effortless and interesting to listen to because not one track sounds like the one before it, NOT ONE. In sum, I'm obsessed with this album because it captures who Marina is as an artist perfectly. If you're trying to convince your friends to become fans or you're a new fan yourself, start with this album first! Absolutely download: Froot, Savages, Can't Pin Me Down and Happy.
