Leave it to Lorde. The New Zealand pop star returns with a powerful new album that's just as good if not better then her debut, proving she's one of the best female singers in the music business today.
The thing that's so different about Melodrama is that it's unlike most female pop records that are released today. It has meaning, and it's filled with emotion and brilliant song writing. Not just that, but the music itself is so good that it's almost haunting how well it connects with the lyrics and what Lorde is trying to say. Melodrama is one of this year's best albums so far, and shows how truly talented the young female singer really is.
You don't have to completely change your music in order to produce a great record. While there are some significant changes between her first and second album, Melodrama is pure Lorde, and it gives strength to her style of music and who she is in the music business. Lorde does this in great passion and style, because with almost every track on the new record, you can tell that she's really trying to say something important and not just releasing another album.
That's what makes Melodrama is so enchanting. Lorde's lyrics aren't just powerful, but they are fascinating in a way that makes you want to listen to them over and over again. Many younger females in today's world easily connect with the lyrics much more then what they can with Katy Perry or Taylor Swift because Lorde is digging up feeling and emotions from within her heart and putting it into her music.
It's an album with a theme, and as much as that can be dangerous, with Melodrama it's pure magic. Lorde's message of being the best of ourselves is what the world needs right now, and especially younger folk both male and female. It's an album for the times that were living in, and Lorde nails it on every tune.
The music style is fascinating as well, and Melodrama never gets boring, from the first track to the last. It's one of those albums where every song is good and you can never tire from listening to.
