The album leaked.

 
It's a confused mish-mash of great pop balladry (Video Games, Dark Paradise, This Is What Makes Us Girls), mediocre electro beats, weird lapses into braggadocio that clash badly with the relatively soft music backing it and God knows what else. Not a bad album by any means, but there isn't anything here that tops Video Games IMO. Definitely screams label-rushed debut, considering how little effort they put into making this album cohere. But I'm sure it'll do fine, and there are a bunch of songs on this that I would like to hear on the radio once in a while.

This is officially released in just a couple of days, right? I think I'm going to wait until then. Hopefully it pops up on the Spotify.

Although I'm not so sure it will. It seems that they've pulled both "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" from Spotify. They had been on there for months. I don't know.

Album isn't totally consistent, but out of the 15 songs on the deluxe edition, about 10 are absolutely great. But be sure to snag the deluxe version because those tracks are better than most of the other album cuts. I'm pretty impressed to be honest and even the weakest tracks are at least pleasant enough to kill the time alright until another strong one comes along.

I really like 'Million Dollar Man', especially her vocals. Sounds like a Fiona Apple ballad produced by Portishead

Critic Reviews for Born to Die at Metacritic

I have no idea why metacritic takes Sputnikmusic into account.

Anyway, these are the sorts of level-headed comments I was hoping for. I'm not sure who would give this an A or an F, but I'm betting that's what Interscope wants.

58% is a C+ in your country now?

Now we know where metacritic's moderating team stands.

If nobody's talked about her music up to this point, I doubt they're going to start now, but I do wish we could. The great thing about her finally having some music out (that is, if LDR is a separate entity from Lizzie Grant) is that we can talk about something besides her lips.

Video Games is still a wonderful song.

In retrospect, this post makes me laugh.
