Your videos rock Let ;D

What I was alluding to was the lack of quality stills anywhere online as a resource in general... there are just
4 of them on Lenka's official site. Hopefully with more live performances coming up, its only a matter of time
before more come to light. I must make an avatar to start with at least... a SIG when there are better pics  ::)

Quick review
------------------------

1. Two *****
Good choice for the opening track, very groovy 8). It kind of reminds me the last album of Sia.

2. Heart Skips a Beat *****
Catchy melody and nice beat

3. Roll with the Punches *****
Funny lyrics. Totally a Lenka's song !

4. Sad Song *****
It's not really a sad song :D Enjoyable.

5. Everything at Once *****
One of my favorite. Simple lyrics but brilliant. I can't stop to sing this song in my head.

6. Blinded by Love *****
It's not bad but it's very conventional. Slow tempo.

7. Here to Stay *****
It reminds me "Live Like You're Dying". Ok song.

8. You Will be Mine ******
Really weird song with this kind of RnB beat. Not really Lenka-ish. In my opinion, it's the worst track of the album.

9. Shock Me into Love *****
It sounds like a 90' song but it's actually great.

10. Everything’s Okay *****
Cute song. I don't know what to say more.

11. End of the World *****
This is the perfect closing track for the album. It's actually a happy song.

Wow that's neat. Have you been there for your holidays?  Or do you like live there? According to the way you write your name I'll take a guess and say that you're french. (J'ai téléchargé l'album de Lenka. Je vais bien sur l'acheter à sa sortie. Les 7 premiers morceaux sont vraiments excellent. Ensuite 2 titres vraiment trop électro. Mais avec la piste 9, l'album recommence :) Guess I'll have to wait til the record is released. I don't do stuff like downloading leaked version of albums :P

I bought it on eBay thanks to an Asian reseller. Yes, I'm French (et tu parles très bien la langue ;))

Such a fun show!! We have missed her. She did mostly stuff from "Two." I'll post the setlist tonight. I have a ton of stuff to do today. I was only able to upload 3 videos so far. http://www.youtube.com/user/LetB24?feature=mhum#p/c/F3209032FE96E75E I'll try and do the rest later as well.

Oh thanks! I am so looking forward to her CD. It seems like 2011 is going to be a great year for singers, it sounds like all of our fav. singers are coming out with CDs this year XD Anna Nalick, (I think Priscilla Ahn), Lenka, Michelle, Vanessa, and I am getting Christina Perri's :P

My dad will think I am buying too much stuff, but hey that's his problem! :P

Wouh, Lenka is back 8) I've found her last record boring but this time, I think she's doing really well. The new album will be released next month and we basically have half of it already.
