Marina is a unique song writer/singer in that she actually writes and sings all of her own material. You can tell by both the elegance of the music and the wit of her lyrics that she's not a "cotton candy" entertainer who steals her writing credits by inserting a note or beat into one part of a song and then calls herself a songwriter. All of her music is her own and it shows because EVERYthing comes from her heart and soul. Marina doesn't take you on some journey of self pity or loathing--she takes you on an exploration of the ironic, the sensual and the comical. Yes, she's THAT good!
The whole album is exceptional but if you want to get hooked, listen to "Forget" only once and you'll be a Diamond for life. I'm not going to do a song-by-song review of her album because I'm not so presumptuous as to think that I can critique such a talented artist but know this: the only thing that Marina does better than write is sing.
Seriously, give Marina a chance...you'll be thanking me later that you did.
