Editors’ Notes After a star-making appearance on The Voice, Melanie Martinez delivers Cry Baby, a riveting debut album full of oddball pop that’s both smart and singularly colorful. Lead single “Pity Party” is an explosive update of Lesley Gore’s classic 1963 single “It’s My Party” that echoes the breathy pastiche of Lana Del Rey. On “Dollhouse,” Martinez paints a searing image of a family in turmoil amid ticking clocks, martial drums, and lullaby-like melodies.
