Comments Pure Heroine was released in September 2013 and was met with critical acclaim, including a Grammy nomination.   At the 2014 New Zealand Music Awards, the album won Best Pop Album and Album of the Year.  It also picked up the Taite Music Prize that year.

In 2014 and 2015 alone, it sold 3.4 million copies.

I do like Lorde’s song writing – she is a poet.  And I understand that the album is intended to highlight her voice and vocal range.

Perhaps I’m just not ‘target audience, but I find this album musically dull.  The label “electro-pop’ sounds like music industry marketese for “couldn’t be arsed paying for musicians to play actual musical instruments.”
