    I want to say something about this, but I can't find the words. It's just... really good. Thought provoking. Makes me think about how I can relate but actually not really at all.

    Words are peculiar things.

    Fiona Apple 10000000000000 times more!

    Amy Lee can't sing... her one octave gets on my nerves after one song.

    Fiona is stunning, real, talented, passionate, has soul... oh... the best!

    There was a great review in the Washington Post about "Born to Die" I read a few good months ago, one of my favorite quotes from it:

    "But the central failure of “Born to Die” isn’t Del Rey’s lack of vocal agility — it’s that her music doesn’t communicate actual feeling. Seemingly divorced from experience, or even imagination, her moody, melancholic music carries only the aura of emotion. It delivers glamour without mystery, desperation without consequence, escapism without destination."

    Dammit, I was totally hoping this was going to be about Lord Red Dragon. Did not read title closely enough.

    Sorry Karen love you to pieces but Born To Die is so fucking depressing lyrically that it slays me. To say it's unemotional reeks of a music journalist with a bigger ego than the artist. Let's have coffee and discuss sometime lol.

    I would normally agree with you on the "journalist with a bigger ego..." comment as I do not often agree with music reviews I read (and 'often' is putting it mildly) but not this time though.. Her emotions do not carry honesty to my ears, the sadness isn't genuine, the crying of the heart sound like one big manufactured fad... I have her album and gave it so many listens; but it sounds empty, shallow, and an attempt to be "oh so melancholy" both musically and lyrically where in reality it has an obvious void.

    The lyrics feel forced and awkward as if she was trying so hard to sound unique and blue describing situations that probably never happen ("Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
    It was like James Dean, for sure... ") -really? Are we throwing James Dean references now Lana? Or does it fit well with your Sinatra-persona of an era you weren't a part of?

    In other words: Me no likey.
    There are about a bazillion and five better female artists out there who will make your heart bleed, if that's what you seek :)

    I take my coffee with no sugar, btw ;)

    She has a interesting voice, but she doesn't seem to step outside a limited range of singing which makes her songs all kind of same-y, and in general her music sounds like an endless buildup to a payoff that never comes.

    I am loving the latest Fiona Apple disc though, and also this debut from Kimbra is really interesting.
