Dear reader,

Sometimes (and only sometimes) we get things wrong. We are only human and we make mistakes, just like you do. Only not as many. But, when we do we like to make amends promptly and emphatically. So, here goes...

We are very sorry Marina & The Diamonds for previously suggesting that you were merely a bad copy of another singer and that your songs were merely 'alright'. We have since listened to both 'Obsessions' and 'Mowgli's Road' constantly and it's clear that you are in fact some kind of witch for you have bewitched us with your melodies. If this is indeed the case then you will need to be drowned in the nearest river, but for now you may continue making glorious pop songs like this, your next single, 'I Am Not A Robot' (no, you're a witch), taken from the EP The Crown Jewels, out in June:

(Don't watch the fan-made video if it's distracting you from the song. Thank you).

So, there you have it. We have revised our opinion and reserve the right to switch it back. It's unlikely. Her debut album is due in October which seems a long way off but really isn't when you think about it rationally.
