ALBUM REVIEW: Marina - Love+Fear

This is the fourth album from platinum-selling singer Marina, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds.

Here, she’s dropped the ‘Diamonds’ element and goes just by the name Marina.

And it's a brilliant pop album from the Welsh songstress. She’s called it Love+Fear, the album split into two eight-song collections.

The first two tracks ‘Handmade Heaven’ and ‘Superstar’ have a feel of Sarah McLachlan - her voice enveloping you with its spot-on range.

Next track ‘Orange’ brings with it a sound similar to that of fellow pop princess Dua Lipa, while ‘Baby’ sees her teaming up with Clean Bandit and Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi.

‘Enjoy Your Life,’ has a punchy beat and the message to never regret.

And track 10 - ‘Life is Strange,’ was a favourite of mine, with its vibrant strings part.

On many of the songs on the album, you hear Marina sing in harmony with herself, thanks to the power of some clever sound engineering, such as in the final track ‘Soft to be Strong,’ which showcases her angelic voice.

The album is out now.
