4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly impressed 13 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Im one of those annoying people that snub pop music outright in favour of really challanging music with no emotion or lyrics. Which is why I was so blown away when I bought this for my wife and then promptly stole it back. Fantastic minimal arrangements and perfect melodies. Hope she doesnt go to big and blow it all before album 2

Loved Royals on Jools Holland, so this prompted me to buy the album. Didn't regret it. This girl will go far!

Seriously. She's that good. Just listen to the samples. I first heard Lorde a while back, and thought she'd just be another one of those artists that I love and nobody else really knows about. Bought her EP, Royals, and loved it to death. But then to my joy, she started showing up on TV and things, getting mainstream recognition and generally becoming super popular, and it's so well-deserved! People really need to support these kinds of artists - show the industry that people care more about talent and good music than 'image'!

Did you know that Ella Yelich-O'Connor (let's call her simply Lorde) created and produced this album, "Pure Heroine" almost by herself, at the tender age of 16, and what she created feels really organic, living (and swimming in its own melancholia) and pure (yes, I almost refer to the title). Not to sound like a proud relative praising a precocious teen, I must underline that I did not really care how old she was, I was (and still am) juts enjoying the album - simple as that!

Okay, Lorde sounds a bit like Lana Del Rey, but does not Miley Cyrus sound like Taylor Swift, and Christina Aguilera like Britney Spears and vice versa. I do not mind the comparison and similarities, what the heck, bring them on, if the result will be so hypnotising and despondent (in the best possible uplifting way) and full of low murmur and gentle laughs and delights and intelligence.

Seriously, the more I listen to "Pure Heroine", the more I like it, it is definitely a grower. Just an example: while it is playing in the background, some songs will always bring my attention to them, no matter what I am doing. Which I think pretty much equals to the fact that there is more to the album than musings of some "bored" (as NME called her) teenager, yes, some of the songs are much catchier than the others, but I've listened to so many albums which, when played in the background, forever stayed there.

This is a beautiful, atmospheric if not a bit moody and impressive debut which has an almost magical feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music 31 Jan 2014

I heard 'ROYALS' on the radio loads of times, but the DJ never seemed to say who it was by and the name of the track. Finally caught it late one night, went straight to Amazon, listened to the 30second tasters from the album and thought this is good. Bought the album as a download at once. GREAT!!!

after all the fuss I bought this album but it's not my taste in music. She is obviously very talented and I can see why she is where she is, just doesn't do 'it' for me

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as I thought.
Having said that this is an album that is really easy to listen to. Is it a future classic? I would say no, the sound is too similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my Lorde!
I heard the song 'Royals' a little while ago and so I checked out the video on Youtube and was hooked ever since. This album is original and the start of a great career for Lorde. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it
I suppose you could accuse it of being a bit samey, but anyone with an individual style could be accused similarly. In a kind of James Yuill, Depeche Mode sorta vibe really. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Lorde's Pure Heroine is pure delight.
I really liked this album because the music is different from the usual contemporary music. Her voice is divine - I'd love to hear her sing jazz. Read more
