I heard there was a lot of hype surrounding a particular video on YouTube (Video Games) which had gone viral, I listened once and wasn't convinced. I found myself wanting to go back to it a lot to give it a second chance, it certainly grew on me, Del Rey is original and a great story teller.

These are two exceptional songs about love and heartbreak, Blue Jeans being a lot stronger than the title track. A lot of people are sceptical about her image, having already tried to hit the big-time under another alias, and failing. For me, I'm buying this because her music is good, her lyrics are simple and her voice is capturing, it craves your attention.

I definitely recommend this, and pre-ordering her debut album!

Who or what is Lana Del Rey? Does this sultry and coquettish singer represent the resurgence of old style Hollywood allure, a sort of Lauren Bacall for the Twitter generation ready made to soundtrack David Lynch films? Alternatively is this just pure Valleys of the Dolls pastiche, all cosmetically enhanced plastic lips and big wigs with the hint of some scheming pop Svengali in the background and representing little more in musical terms than "Barbie Duffy". We know that before Lana Del Rey had the make over there was just plain old Lizzy Grant of Lake Placid, New York. We also know that "Video Games" and its ubiquitous video full of Eisenhower era America imagery has been viewed by millions and has generated so much noise on the internet that it has been almost deafening. Everyone has an opinion on Ms Del Ray and the record executives at Stranger Records must think Christmas has come early.

But what about the music on this extended EP? The one non Video Games song on this EP namely "Blue Jeans" is frankly little more than "Chris Issak Lite" and based so obviously on the "Wicked games" template that its almost a cover. We then have 3 versions of "Video Games". You could of course not stop there and access one of the many other remixes across the internet employing a variety of style and in the case of "Club Clique for the bad girls" a disco dance mix. The nine minute plus Mr Fingers mix on this EP is in the same orbit and while it might sound great watching the sun crashing into the Mediterranean from a blissed out Isle of Ibiza it goes on far too long. Equally the Omid 16B remix is one of those where the producer has not quite managed to integrate the vocals into a heavy dub style mix and is rather off kilter to say the least.

I don't usually write reviews but I saw the low rating for this release and was really surprised. On my first listen to Video Games I thought "wow, what a lovely voice" and on the second I fell for the melody. It's bittersweet and I find myself going over the lyric meanings. Blue Jeans is also a great track. They have a similar sound and vibe so perhaps Lana Del Rey is a marmite artist who you love or hate but I for one can't wait to hear more from her with the album release.

I was idly watching and listening to MTV recently when the video for "Video Games" came on and it totally caught my attention - something that rarely happens with contemporary music! Such a gorgeous voice, SO different from the endless female singers with their "yoyo" voices as I call them. Not only that, the orchestration was really enchanting, I found the song going around my head for ages afterwards.

What a rare treat to hear something so original - Lana you have a great talent, I hope you have real success.

This is one of those songs that when it came out was really catchy and so I bought it. Probably by the time I'd downloaded it I was already getting sick of it given that it was everywhere.

Oh well.

This song is amazing and is a breath of fresh air. Can't wait for the album, she's a diamond and they only come once in a generation. Welcome the 'Gangster Nancy Sinatra' LANA DEL REY :D

Not sure why everyone talks about the hype around records. Music is a very personal, people like different things which is a very good thing. I heard 'Video Games' on a friends playlist a month ago on Spotify. The playlist had about 50 tracks on it and 'Video Games' instantly stood out amung the rest. I listened to it quite a few times and now play it on the Piano. All this without knowing who sang it. Obvisouly in the last couple of weeks in the build up to the album release everyone is talking about it and seems to have an opinion on the singer but that's just marketing. Just sit back, listen and enjoy.
