Lorde - Pure Heroine
The first track on the album is 'Tennis Court' which I mentioned in an earlier post is a great first song, with it's insanely addictive lyrics (similar to 'Royals'),awesome synthesizer and great beat make this an absolute gem of a song I especially love the lyrics "My head's filling up fast with wicked games/ How can I f**k with fun again when I'm known?" (and the "yeahs" will definately get stuck in your head).
The second song is '400 Lux' which is a seriously cool song especially the lyrics to this song like this example “We’re never done with killing time / Can I kill it with you? / Until its veins run red and blue” how cool is this chick?
The next song is 'Royals' another that I reviewed earlier and I still don't get sick of it I still belt it out everytime I hear it. I love this song, it is so cool, so now and oh so new. The world needs this instead of the Miley Cyrus twerking crap that is infecting the world at the moment (give that shit a miss and buy this album instead).
We then move onto 'Ribs' this song is a killer track with it's slow building intro then it's straight into some awesome lyrics and a beat that almost sounds like a heartbeat, this track is unreal!! One of my favourites on the album. The next song 'Buzzcut Season' is another cool track with a soft intro that goes onto form the perfect backdrop to her voice, great song.
The next track is 'Team' this song is another one of my favourites, cool beat, great vocals and even better lyrics especially my favourite line "I'm kinda over being told to throw my hands up in the air" that lyric kicks ass, how many songs tell you to throw your hands up in the air? That's what makes this song so cool, really intelligent lyrics. We then move onto "Glory and Gore" is a darker song on the album and it is so relevant to this day and age, well worth listening to over and over again.
We then move onto 'Still Sane' a song in which Lorde's vocals shine, just pure bliss to listen to on this track, another of my favourites. 'White Teeth Teens' has a more upbeat pop feel to it, but it's lyrics about never being a white teeth teen, you know those perfect teens that you just wanted to smash or in my case flick poo at, so seriously cool. The last song is 'A World Alone' which features one of the best lyrics “Baby, the Internet raised us / Or maybe people are jerks” so true and she delivers it in a way that only Lorde can.
All up this album is a rock solid debut and is a killer of an album one that I highly recommend especially in this day and age of plastic pop stars and women singers who think that they can just strip off and somehow it will make their music so much cooler, when the reality is they should be more like Lorde, stand and deliver, good music doesn't need nudity, it doesn't need tricks. The lyrics and music will speak for itself.
All up I give this a massive 5 and a half shots of whiskey out of 5. You can check out Lorde here https://www.facebook.com/lordemusic and do yourself a massive favour and buy her new album,

Peace Out My Bitches!
