What she means: The family jewels is the most under appreciated album by Marina and the diamonds. Every single track on the album was quirky and original. Marina didn’t write any love songs on the album and wrote about feeling disconnected from her friends and family. She showed off her vocal ability and range, AND all of the songs were relatable and deep. Also everyone says that “girls” was an anti feministic song, however it was clearly satirical and pro feminist (examples: “never look a day past thirty” “girls are not meant to fight dirty” “not gonna bend over and curtsy”) Everyone in the Marina fandom blogs about EH and froot but like what about TFJ????
“Looking back on it, I kind of think it was the best of times. Families, like life, have a way of changing, never staying the same, but they’re your family, this eclectic, deeply bonded group. So you evolve, you adapt. And now… As I look at my life and my new extended family, I think of this wonderful quote by George Eliot. ‘It’s never too late to be what you might have been.’”
