The second award for Trend’s “Best of…” awards is for album. The nominees were “Some Nights” by fun., “Picture Show” by Neon Trees, “Born to Die” by Lana del Rey, “Electra Heart” by Marina and the Diamonds, and “21” by Adele. The winner was based on each songs, whether me and my friends were able to repeat the songs without dread, songs requested at when hanging out, and the appeal of each song. Was it well written? Did the words fit with the tune? And did the album feel well coordinated and have a tone?
The winner is Marina and the Diamonds’ album “Electra Heart.” This is the second album put out by British pop singer Marina Diamondis and has gradually been gaining momentum abroad with such singles as “How to be a Heartbreaker,” “Power and Control,” “Primadonna,” and “Radioactive.”
I introduced my friends to this artist and the album earlier this year and several of them now listen to her and request for the music from this album specifically.
“Electra Heart” was released on April 27, 2012.
