From the moment I heard Pure heroine for the first time I knew that this girl was special. Four years later, she released this killer album. Lorde's mature and poignant commentary on fame, youth and modern society comes to fruition thanks to her always solid lyrics and mesmerizing voice, and the production is now richer than it was on her debut. She is one to keep an eye on, for sure. I only wish more pop records were as good as this one. Favourite tracks: Homemade dynamite and Sober.

Completely out of my usual listenings. That definitely raises the value of this review, I think...
A brilliant expression of this decade, a quality product from a certainly charismatic singers, which is Lorde. A complete work, never equal to itself, containing the little big jewel Liability, probably the best song of the year.

This is album is great. I didn't catch the hype at the beginning but then it got me and I could appreciate the greatness, beauty and emotions that these tracks emanate. Excellent melodies, singing and composition. It makes me happy that Lorde has evolved positively since the beginning of her carreer

Melodrama was one of my favourite albums of the year. I like how it works as a cohesive unit of music, and the emphasis that has been placed on the 'complete experience' of the album as opposed to individual standout tracks. Recurring beats, rhythms etc. make everything work well as a whole. Standout tracks for me are Sober, Supercut and Hard Feelings/Loveless

I'm revising my rating a little as I'm warming up to this. I still think Pure Heroine is the better and more significant record. On repeat listens I'm noticing some beautiful vocal melodies and her songwriting seems more cohesive than at first listen.

While I miss the focused, minimalistic production of Joel Little, she's a competent enough songwriter to make up for the production team that seems stuck between wanting to make a commercial electro-pop sounding record and a pseudo experimental atmospheric one. The production in my opinion is a mixed bag because at sometimes it ends up sounding really crisp and pretty but other times it sounds overproduced and the instrumentals are so generic to the point of being distracting. Of course her voice sounds great no matter what.

Lyrically I'm less pissed off at it too as I'm noticing it is on the whole more critical of the "dance dance party party" than embracing it. I think it's still intentionally ambiguous, which makes it pretty great. I still think she's capable of making a record that blows anything she's done to date out of the water. She doesn't need Joel or the Fun lead singer anymore than Kyrie needed Lebron and I truly feel she'll eventually put out something to really prove this.

Compared to what her pop contemporaries are releasing, it's easy to see why this is getting lot of attention. It comes off as authentic, and lush while basically all her competition comes off as lazy and generic. With that said, it's definitely not something I would listen to all the time. It's good though, I'll leave it at that.

I really like this album. Lorde should be dominating the charts instead of Adele.

Top 5 AOTY for me. Lorde is cementing herself as the best female pop artist in modern music. This album tells a story of Lorde finding maturity over the last few years. The narrative follows the emotional epicenter of the current generation. She begins going to a party and feeling that "when we're dancing everything is alright" but she starts to get more personal and reflects on the modern ideals of nights out and superficial interaction as a means of experiencing human connection. From Liability onwards the album is more dark and introspective as she takes apart the feelings of loneliness of lovelessness of the modern age. Perfect places serves as a perfect end for the piece as she sums up the idea that everyone is looking for this ideal that seems impossible to achieve in the way society presents it, looking for a perfect place instead of a place of fulfillment.

I have high hopes for Lorde. She showed tremendous growth as an artist and a person between two albums and she is still only 21 years old. She now sits at about the same point Kendrick was at after GKMC, relative to their genres. Let's hope she can make a TPAB.
