Tove Lo - Queen of The Clouds - Review

Tove Lo, born Tove Ebba Elsa Nilsson is the New Swedish Pop singer-songwriter and musician from Stockholm, Sweden. Her debut album “Queen of the Clouds” is out and it will definitely be around for some time to come. The whole album is great and there are several tracks that should become singles, and that should keep this album flying high on the charts for a long time. The better tracks are not the singles. My faves are “Moments”, “Got Love”, “Thousand Miles”, “Run On Love” and “Talking Body”.

The sound is a mix/mash of the multi-genre pop/alternative rock of the day. It's not far off from Lana Del Rey or maybe somewhere between Britney/Madonna, Lana Del Rey, Lorde & Katy Perry. The vivid lyrical content is reminiscent of Ke$ha. The album as a whole is one of the best that has come out this year and any and everyone who gives it a spin will agree.

The perspective of her lyrical phrasing is what sets her apart from others and this angle of her personality is what attracts.

The album “Queen of the Clouds” is separated thematically into three parts: “The Sex,” “The Love,” and “The Pain,” Each part begins with a spoken prelude to songs following each theme. It's an interesting artistic and creative touch that only helps make this amazing album from start to finish an album to not only remember, but to recommend and or gift it to others during the coming holiday season.

Her 2013 single "Habits", and the later remixed version by hip hop producers Hippie Sabotage titled "Habits-Stay High" - "Out of Mind" and "Not on Drugs" are all featured on Tove Lo's debut album “Queen of the Clouds”.

I rate this 5-Star.

As much as I really love this new music, I really did not care for the accompanying videos.
You can decide for yourself on that one, her videos are easily found on her website and also YouTube and Vevo.
