A 'dark paradise' of an album.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born to Die (Audio CD)
Of course, as I'm sure a lot of others have, I first heard Video Games and Born To Die on the radio/through word of mouth leading me to look them up.
I knew I had to investigate further, which then led me to the enchanting songs of Blue Jeans and Carmen (which is my current favourite). And now I understand why Lana Del Rey is talked about so much. It feels like each song is a little world that we're being taken through to explore.
It has the, quite unusual, ability of sounding modern whilst sounding like it's been snatched from the 1930s-40s. There are elements of old timey-ness that keep you hooked, with lyrics so smooth you'll want to make sure you know the words so you can mouth along with them (at least, in my case that's true).
If you enjoy at least 2 or 3 of Lana Del Rey's songs, then I urge you to buy the whole album, as you'll undoubtedly love the rest.

Nice review and I agree with all you said. A great talent, gorgeous, and, importantly for me, a humble person who treats her fans with the respect they deserve. From her amazing Hackney weekend set:
