Marina’s ballads are weak

Mandatory disclaimer: this is not a hate thread, I’m just genuinely curious if some of you feel the same way.

Marina’s ballads are often very weak, especially compared to her upbeat songs. She writes such amazing pop hooks and her faster, more heavily produced tracks really overshadow the ballads for me. Can anyone relate?

Nope.

I mean I don't really know what counts as a ballad, but are we counting I'm A Ruin? Happy? The acoustic version of Lies? Numb? Immortal?

Phenomenal. Groundbreaking. I really don't see how they could be considered weak, in my opinion.

Flowers is one of her best ballads and one of the best ballads I have ever heard tbh. Same for Highly Emotional People

Seriously though… To Be Human is phenomenal, would I say it’s better than anything Gaga has released? No lol but it’s equal to Gaga’s best work.

As one someone who actually likes L+F.. “Go to Russia, see the Red Square / Lenin's body lying dead there” is some of the worst lyrics of all time

Her upbeat songs are better for sure but she has some amazing ballads tbh. Flowers is my favorite one from the new album

hmm I don’t think her ballads are weak per se, she’s just better at melancholic bops like I’m a Ruin
