I saw her concert last night, and that was by far my favorite show of the year. Virtually every single one of her songs takes off live. Surgeon, Northern Lights, Strange Mercy, Cheerleader and Your Lips Are Red were unbelievably good. I can't wait to see her again at some point.

I like this more than her last album, definitely, but I'm still really not a big fan . Definitely found that the things I didn't like about the last album (I felt like, in spite of the fact I listened to it three or four times, none of the songs ever stuck with me past their end points, and that really was what hurt the album for me) were a none factor this time. Plenty of quality songs, especially between tracks 3-6.

I'll give it a few more spins in the future and see if it doesn't grow on me a bit.

I might have to buy this in spite of it not having lyrics. Having an "illegal" version is killing me.

I too feel like going to drink. Primarily after having never seen that... that ring.

I guess I'm a bush league stalker.

Finally got around to listening to Marry Me, which I dare say, is a stronger effort than Actor. There is tremendous diversity of style on display for a debut album, and all the eccentricities of her later work seem to be present as well. I love how it drifts between serious gravitas and irreverence, even self-deprecation. I'm really glad that I made the purchase.

Really. So you're saying there's a chance.

I think Cheerleader is my favorite song she's ever done.

It's funny that there doesn't seem to be one big song from this album. Surgeon was the first single, but then everyone stopped talking about that when Cruel came out, and now she's onto Cheerleader? That's interesting. Personally, I wish Northern Lights would receive more airplay, that is such a catchy song.
