Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate // WINNER

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Lost Boy, Dec 7, 2013.

  1. Are you ready? Here we go.

    Electra Heart; a powerful and complex album from the one and only Marina and the Diamonds.
    Though often marred with an unsteady campaign, the music stands as a testament to Marina's many talents.

    Halcyon Days; a groundbreaking album for Ellie Goulding, taking her to a new level of success suddenly seen with her recent single "Burn" scaling the charts. Plenty of songs of a very high standard from one single campaign, Ellie fans were definitely treated.

    So which is the better album? Which gets the hearts of the listening pumping the fastest? Which gets the tears flowing the most? Which album will succeed, and then which song will take the crown?

    Fan favourites such as Anything Could Happen or Primadonna could steal the crown easily, but there's only one way to find out... VOTE.

    Voting can be in .0's and .5's. For example, it's obvious that Primadonna is a 9.5 and Anything Could Happen is a 9, but that's just me! I'll open the voting immediately, just send me a nice friendly PM with your scores and make sure to save it so you can look back at your scores. Voting will close on the 18th at roughly SIX PM.

    I feel lots of 10s coming.
     
  3. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    I know exactly how you feel. Two incredible albums.
     
  4. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    About time!

    I love both albums to bits (not actually listened to Halcyon Days yet). I'd love to see Radioactive win, with Only You being the highest scoring non-single.

    If Primadonna wins though..

    Can we get an exact date/time that votes will be closing? If you later push it back that's fine - it's just that I'm considering participating and want to see the timeline I'm working with.
     
  6. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    Okay, I'll give it until the 18th at Six o'clock as a solid point, ready to start for the next day.
     
  7. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    I'm all over this. I haven't really given Halycon Days a chance yet. and there some bonus tracks for both I'll need to check in with.

    If all thing are fair, 80% of ellie's stuff should be out before we even see the first track from Marina.

    Either could win and I'd be happy though.

    I'd say if "E.V.O.L." is included then perhaps "Just Desserts" should be too? It's not a necessity though.
     
  9. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    So here for this, I'm actually wary about my scoring... may end up too generous? eek

    #JusticeForFigure8!!! Though there are like 10 songs that I'd be okay with winning.

    And yes, Just Desserts would be a nice inclusion to even things for Marina a bit.
     
  11. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    This is going to be a very difficult rate. Halcyon is one of my top ten favourite albums, so it'll be interesting to see how I can rate the songs as they pertain to the album itself as opposed to in comparison to Electra Heart...

    I'm excited though!

    All of Halcyon Days out first please. The rest is outstanding pop.
     
  13. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    I love both albums so I definitely want to take part in that. Will be my first rate!
     
  14. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    The first rate I'm taking part in! Exciting. Love Halcyon and while I don't own Days yet, I have given it a lot of spins. Electra Heart is one I really need to give more time as I never really did bar a few songs, so looking forward to sitting down with it.
     
  15. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    I really don't want to have to listen to Halcyon Days.
     
  16. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    Okay, if you think Just Desserts should be included say now and I can accommodate.

    Edit: I've added it, so make sure to include it guys and girls. The reasoning was they were placed under the Electra Heart label on her YouTube, so I thought it'd be stupid to dismiss them.

    I don't even know what or who Marina Diamonds is/are, but I think I'll give it a go.
     
  18. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    You, my friend, are in for a treat.
     
  19. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    Looking forward to rating 'Electra Heart' and 'Halcyon'. 'Halcyon Days' not so much.
     
  20. Re: Marina and the Diamonds VS Ellie Goulding // Electra Heart VS Halcyon Days Rate

    I'd be happy with Power & Control sweeping this, with State of Dreaming following suit. *hint hint*
