Marina and The Diamonds hate is just plain stupid.
Though I've already dismissed fun and the punkish/rebellious novelty of We are young and rest of the record wore of quickly but last night I stumbled upon the title track while shuffling and it is quite good and powerful. In fact might be the best thing about the whole project (after the album cover though, that is cool.)
Meanwhile, tonight is
I've been road-tripping across the country and getting into a lot of newer music. Some observations:
- I can't believe it's taken me this long to listen to Die Antwoord. What an insanely bizarre and tremendous experience. I'm in love.
- The Niki and the Dove record is awesome.
- I actually really like the Norah Jones album. It's a fun diversion for her. "Miriam" is so bitchy and a huge 'fuck you.'
- The Nicki Minaj album is so strange. Half of it is amazing ("Come On A Cone?!") and the other half is quite generic and boring.
- Jack White is essentially a genius.
Umm. Apparently Adele's 21 has bypassed THRILLER to become the all-time best selling album in the UK.

Also, Azealia Banks' rap in the "Blue Jeans" remix is one of the best moments of the year and will definitely remain as such. Just, wow. As a whole the track is very good - but her verse is just...phenom.

This song is flawless, like she is so natural, what happened...?
I'm not sure I buy this Gaga-"I'm intentionally mediocre" approach that Marina takes at certain points of Electra Heart....

Solopop, go away!
But they're both brilliant!
Don't Hold Your Breath is the best song of 2011, I can't think of a song that even comes close. It is perfection.
