5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise 13 Nov 2012
By tori p
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Oh how I love LDR, These extra songs are just as wonderfully thematic and atmospheric as her previous offerings. I love the way that she displays, through her vocals, a beautifully complex duel personality. Person one has the deep and dark drawl, showing us a woman who is deeply cynical, tired and numbed by previous dissappoints in life. Person two has the higher,sweeter tones. She is childlike,open and wide eyed, wanting desperately to be loved and taken care of. I may be getting a bit carried away, but I really, really love the whole album! Other Lana fans will understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars My friends ridicule me. 15 Mar 2013
By Roxie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Why would you listen to her, it's just more whiny drivel, why won't you listen to this song about bitches and ho's, WHY WON'T YOU JUST BE LIKE US." And you know what, I am so happy to have her music in my life. A song for every mood. A lyric for every moment. She might not be to everybody's tastes but I personally love her. Not to mention the pure catchyness of quite a few of her songs, lolita for example. Sugary sweet but still kinda wrong. What's not to like??

5.0 out of 5 stars Most interesting artist of the decade 16 Jun 2014
By T. Dar
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
A sound which is as hauntingly enchanting as it is difficult to define. Lana Del Rey is an enigma, and her music stands out as refreshingly unique and different.

The title track is truly stunning, and my other favourites include 'Off To The Races', 'Summertime Sadness' and 'Ride'.

Having said that, there wasn't a track on either of the discs of this Paradise Edition that I didn't like. Although sometimes shockingly explicit, every song has a story to tell. There is a good balance of tempo and melancholy and more cheerful tracks.

Del Rey's voice is instantly recognisable despite its fantastic range from dulcet low tones to almost child-like high pitch vulnerability.

A stunning album from one of the most interesting artists I think I've ever come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in paradise, 14 Nov 2012
By Lyn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
‘The Paradise Edition’ opens with the sultry and seductive ‘Ride’. Nostalgic lyrics and haunting vocals, teamed up with a rich melancholic piano melody. Listening to this song, I’m transported to a wide stretch of the American desert, where I’m free to bask in my own self-indulgent misery, if only for a moment. This is of course, until that heart-wrenching chorus kicks in, and I’m imaging myself there, on that rope, swinging in midair, just as we see in the video for the song. This song appeals to me in ways I cannot possibly explain, and because of that… I just ride. What I find most interesting about this song is Lana’s ability to highlight what it means to feel rejected, to be someone who is just drifting through life, maybe even feeling a little crazy at times.. and then to just let it go, accept it even. That is what the chorus delivers – an overwhelming sense of freedom and comfort.

After the emotional highs and lows of ‘Ride’, I find myself drifting away into a somewhat angelic, dreamy state, as I catch myself humming along to Lana’s smoky vocals on ‘American’, the second song from ‘The Paradise Edition’. It has all the key elements of a classic, sophisticated ballad, but with that key atmospheric twist that Lana brings to her music. As I listen to this song, I’m reminded of how I felt when I first heard ‘The Lucky Ones’ from the ‘Born to Die’ record. There is a certain similarity between them, in that, they both step away from the darker side of Lana. While I honestly prefer Lana’s darker, more mysterious and melancholic tracks, I have to admit that this song definitely finds its way into my top five.

Keep in mind though, that… if you thought that the tracks from ‘Born to Die’ highlighted the dark side of Lana, ‘Gods and Monsters’ will offer you her darkest side yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cola Will Never Taste the Same Again 13 Feb 2014
By Eugene Onegin TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Imagine walking around MOMA looking an Andy Warhol exhibition whilst listening to Connie Francis and watching Mulholland Drive on your tablet in between a few pages of Lolita. If this idea rocks your boat, then don't hesitate-you will love this. If you need a little more persuading, then be in no doubt that Del Rey has an interesting if not especially beautiful voice, a pen which can paint striking images and a mind which produces a telling line. However, far more important than any of this is this woman like all of the greats of pop can spin a melody-Ride, Video Games, Summertime Sadness and American are all minor classics of the genre and justify this purchase on their own. Not all of the tracks are as good, but it is obvious that Del Rey has surrounded herself with a production team that can make the very best of her material and provide the musical tools to bring to life her world of B Movies. teenage Lolitas, road trips, sex, love and desire painted in the brash language of a comic strip. It sounds tacky but as I said the melodic gift makes it special. She stumbles only when she starts to rap when she commits the cardinal sin of sounding just like anybody else.On average I buy 2 pop records a year. This was one of them. Enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars My album tastes like Pepsi cola 15 Nov 2012
By Andromeda Descendent TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm so much a fan of Lana Del Rey that as well as Born To Die I have listened to her little known first album and even some unreleased demos. Listening to the new CD "Paradise" I instantly recognised a new version of Yayo and the recently released Blue Velvet, but the six other songs were completely new to me. Blue Velvet, a cover song, has much of the by now verging on overused production style and sounds of the Born To Die album, the special edition of which is of course also in this 2CD jewel case. However, the other tracks thankfully have a different (if less instantly distinctive) sound to them. That was a good choice musically, as Lana's voice is distinctive enough. The subject of these songs doesn't stray very far from Lana's in-character personality, and perhaps that shouldn't surprise anyone, but it makes the thoughtful and luscious Yayo really stand out as being something different and extra special.

A mixture of playful and serious, each one telling a different story, it's hard not to listen to Lana songs without images popping into your head, but I was caught off guard by one particular lyric. I found myself, perhaps not shocked but a mixture of amused and puzzled by the first line of the new song Cola. Lana has perhaps been listening to 212 by Azealia Banks. There are a couple of songs with, shall we say, a bit of strong language on - so if that bothers you stay away, or maybe keep listening and you may change your mind. In the music equivalent of the art/pornography argument, a.k.a. I know it when I hear it, there are some uses that stand out to me as being completely inoffensive due to context. For that debate, see also Star Me Kitten by R.E.M.
