I have been a big fan of Lana since her release of 'Born to Die' in 2012, and when it was re-released as a 'Paradise Edition' later in the same year, I became to be in awe of this woman.

I was afraid that Ultraviolence wasn't going to live up to the cinematic and authentic feel of 'Born to Die', but I'm glad to say that Lana outdid herself with this album. It's darker and edgier whilst sounding more underground, and it is still hasn't stained her reputation of being a brilliant songwriter and artist. Each song on this album has its own unique feel to it and draws you in for its own reason, examples in my opinion include the romance in Shades of Cool and the nostalgia of Old Money which boldly stood out to me whilst listening to this album.

Favourite tracks on this album are Cruel World, Shades of Cool, Sad Girl, Old Money, The Other Woman, Black Beauty.

This album is incredible and is my favourite album of 2014 by far! Ultraviolence is an intoxicating and near-flawless masterpiece in the making, you must listen to it!

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've come to her music a bit late in the day and it's lovely to enjoy a fresh discovery. A haunting voice and good production, with great songs. Also pleasing to see that it definitely does not have any kind of second album dip, which can afflict quite a few performers. What's not to like?

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.

I admit that I was curious to eventually purchase ultraviolence by lana del rey after reading in an interview where she admitted to wishing that she had already died. Please know that like millions of others, I wish a happy life for her regardless of how long she lives. However, her honest admission surprised me because I actually saw the positive in what she was saying. I am in the camp who does not believe that she was trying to advocate or endorse suicide. Instead, I interpreted her admission to imply that she just wanted to be real to her fans in expressing that her life is not as perfect as it appears to be. Too many times, I have seen article features where it appears that a celebrity feels pressured (maybe at the advice of their publicist and/or other members of their entourage)to make their life or how they feel more glamorous than it really is. In my eyes, lana del rey was only trying to make it clear that there is a lot more to how she is feeling in her life that lies underneath the beauty and wealth that she is known for. As a result, I purchased ultraviolence by lana del rey on October 11, 2014 as a way to hear a musical sound from someone who is valiantly truthful with how she is feeling in life. There are multiple fantastic songs on ultraviolence, in addition to west coast such as shades of cool, Brooklyn baby, pretty when you cry, track number 9, and old money. The only thing that I would gently mention is that I just wish that there were some high energy songs as well, such as the behind close doors music sample that I heard in early 2014.Read more ›
