  2. This, The Family Jewels is such a brilliant debut, her songwriting on that one is so sharp, so clever and very open, it's a shame it's not as revered as it should have been (I mean by the GP), I think the only song I am not very impressed by is Shampain, vocally she reminds me of Lene Lovich quite a lot.

    I've tried many, many times to appreciate the debut, but past 'Oh No!' there isn't much.
  4. Are You Satisfied? though...

  6. Shampain and Blue are the two queens, and third is between Hollywood, Hypocrarates, Froot, and maybe even on the right day Gold.
  7. TNWWY/True is a BOP and a half,from what I've heard in the snippet. I thought it'd be an emotional ballad (i remember the video she posted with her playing music in a music toy?) but it's serving Blue teas! I'm shook to the core

    Oh No!
    Are You Satisfied?

    is the debut trinity.

  10. I love that there's so much variation among everyone's fave songs. Marina has songs for everyone, confirmed.

  11. I could never pick a top three, not even for each album. Every song is amazing in its own way~
  12. Better Than That is one of my faves for the middle eight alone. A definite peak.

  13. Guilty and Numb are two of her best written songs and Mowgli’s Road remains a colossal high. Family Jewels is still that bitch.

    That’s just how I’m feeling today though. It could be a different 3 tomorrow.

  15. I've never really liked this. I think it's a poor opener. Opening with Robot would have been better.

    I put Obsessions as my favourite from The Family Jewels, but it does swap with Robot at times, which is equally amazing.

    There are indeed loads of good songs on the debut, but there are a few stinkers as well. Stinkers that I think are worse than my least favourite tracks on the next two albums.

    I do think that another issue I had with the debut is that, Hermit and Oh No aside, all the best songs had already been released before the album, so the first experience of listening was a bit anti-climactic.

    It's still great though.

  16. Seeing people listing songs I didn't include but deserve to be there just makes me realise a top 3 is pretty much impossible to do.

  17. Marina had me at full Stan mode forever with 'It's my problem if I have no friends and feel I want to die.'

  18. I'd say

    Are You Satisfied?

    is my holy trinity.
