Good album from a young artist. I like Glory and Gore and Buzzcut season. She was great singing Life on Mars at the British awards Tribute to Bowie. Gaga's Tribute was awful..She is going to go far.

I would gear this album more towards teens and early 20's. She has a refreshing style from the pop scene, but her lyrics are written from a teen's point of view.

I have Lorde's two top tunes "Royals" from "Now, Vol. 49" and "Team" from "Now, Vol.50." Decided to borrow this CD and like "Buzzcut Season" and "Tennis Court" almost as much but not to say the rest are mediocre. Enjoy.

The music CDs were OK and enjoyable. I even recorded a track or two for my iPhone.
I was happy to see that the library had them.

Wow. So this is what the fuss is all about.

An artist who, like Adele not so long ago, I feel more than lives up to the hype surrounding her, and a thoroughly enjoyable record.
