An artist with plenty to say and stand for, Marina deserves respect for the brave approach to her craft this album represents.

Throughout the album, Marina appears fresh-faced and clear-eyed as one can be when they've trudged through murky waters.

The temptation of safe is undeniable, but mononyms are earned by embracing risk.

All of the songs on Marina's Love + Fear are gems.

By and large standard pop, but with some textual diamonds.

Her mission was to create two separate vibes for the records, so putting time and space in between both projects proved to be a solid choice.

The album is a lush, vibrant and powerful representation of these two driving forces behind human responses.

Diverse and eclectic in its delivery, this fourth full-length sees her return with a confidence and swagger we rarely see in the mainstream these days.

A change in sound, which would have brought an interesting twist, is missing.

Four years from her last album, it feels like Diamandis knows exactly what she wants to say and how she wants to sound. Love + Fear is well worth the wait.

Love + Fear lands as both a step forward and a reminder of who she's always been as an artist.

The ‘Fear’ side of the record is a whole lot stronger.

Marina has thought a lot about her evolution as an artist and as a person, which reflects in the maturity of her new record.

There’s lots to love and little to fear here.

The newly mononymous Marina finds her throughline in an essential curiosity about self-doubt, ruin, and rapture.

STACK STACK

Marina's still shining (and bopping) without 'the Diamonds'.

Entertainment Weekly Entertainment Weekly (TOP)

Throughout both parts (but more so in Fear), there’s a detachment to Marina’s vocal that implies an alien being trying to figure humanity out.
