Play this with your headphones on and close your eyes. You will experience true transcendence. Lana del Rey is an breathtaking artist. Something about the combination of her breathy, angelic voice with her dark lyrics makes this album divine. It's really different to born to die (I think paradise marks the middle ground between the two albums) but at the same time it's still VERY Lana. It's hard t explain without listening to it. But on the whole this album has a more stripped back, raw feel. It's edgier. It's darker. Sure, Born to Die was dark, but poppier songs were interspersed with the darker songs on that album. The themes this album deals with can be very bleak; Lana does not shy away from dealing with controversial topics, and the ethereal sound contributes to this mood further. It's a haunting masterpiece. It would be difficult to pick standout tracks, but I'm happy to say that there are no filler tracks either. It all fits together perfectly.

Download it. I don't know how she keeps doing it!

I certainly haven't heard better. She could so easily have followed 'Born to Die' with a couple of good singles to buoy up a ho-hum second album, but this is a gorgeous and superbly sustained collection of songs that develop Lana's 'dissolute prom queen' persona to stunning effect.

There is a nagging sense that the album hasn't done quite as well as it should have, perhaps because the lead singles were ill-chosen: 'West Coast' certainly grows in this context, but 'Ultraviolence' is one of the lesser songs here. They are both swamped by the majesty of 'Shades of Cool', 'Sad Girl', and the quite fabulous 'Brooklyn Baby'. 'Pretty When You Cry' sounds a bit like filler, admittedly, and could signal a long tail of diminishing returns in the second half, but it really doesn't - 'Money, Power, Glory', 'F*d My Way Up to the Top' and the lovely ballad 'Old Money' push the quality bar right back up.

Seriously, you need to have this. Like me, you will soon have it on repeat with a bottle of wine, bellowing along with a great big grin on your face.

I had two of Lana's albums so it was natural that I wanted to buy this album Ultraviolence. I heard a track in the store I bought it in and it didn't seem to grab me much but I still bought the album because I know how good Lana is, even live she is brilliant, I've seen her on Jools Holland's show.
Anyway, to put it bluntly, I was very disappointed after the first listen, I was even going to hand it back the next day in exchange for something else, I thought like many others it was too dark and moody. I also thought she was just using the same melodies from the other albums and varying the sound to make it sound like it was different, how so wrong I was.
Music can be so strange, it never ceases to amaze me how sounds can be interpreted differently by the mind by just the passing of time. I thought about it the following day after the first listen and decided to keep the album and wait a couple of days and give it another listen, sometimes an album like this may even need that third listen before the magic from the songs reveals itself. I always give at least one day's rest before the next listen, that way it doesn't seem like repetition and also the songs are relatively fresh in your mind.
I think this is a brilliant album and probably now my most favorite of her albums, I have Born To Die and Paradise. Its a much deeper album than those two but that is its strength, it creeps up on you and surprises you with its beauty. I like all the songs on it and the three bonus tracks are great too, they mean a lot to me too.
Don't give up on Lana in this album, she has been very brave to go this route and I'm glad her record label stuck by her and released this material, this is a defining album for her which will give her fans even more admiration for her. She's different and she changes direction and thats what I like about her music and her too.

I have an immensely high regard for Lana Del Rey, she has the ability to write incredibly hard, almost vicious, biting lyrics and then deliver them in a voice so sweet and gentle that the barbs leave no wound. Quite simply, as demonstrated on "Born To Die" and "Paradise", she's one of the best lyricists around and definitely one of the best vocalists currently performing.
"Ultraviolence" merely extends that legacy, the lyrics are just as subversive, brilliantly picturesque (verbal S&M maybe) and a complete contrast to her verbal delivery. This album, to me, seems to be a perfect next step in the Lana Del Rey story and easily stands on its own against the previous two, I can hardly wait for the next edition - will she mellow, will she continue to rail against the industry and system, will she make some peace with her inner demons? Whatever the answer, I'll be first in line to buy it.

A perfect follow up to Born to Die. More morose more adult and more captivating. Gone is the girlishness but the voice and intelligent lyrics remain. Cruel World is perhaps the best song of the year whilst lead single West Coast cleverly plays with rhythm and lyrics blending them to perfection.
