    Kele has instead chosen a route that doesn't challenge the listener or, it seems, himself.

    Moroder's attempts at creating a 21st century version of his prior success results in painfully artificial, sterile, boring music.

    I really wish that Pixies still had their magic, but they don't, and it's a terrible shame for all of the parties concerned. For us as the listener, and for them as the band that are running on empty.

    In her grand tradition of coining absurd descriptive phrases, Del Rey and Auerbach have christened all this "narco swing", an apt characterisation if only one assumes it's short for narcoleptic; it takes some doing to make sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll sound boring, but in her hands, the vices of hedonism scan as crushingly monotonous.

    An album filled with songs that seem unable to grab attention.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The resulting effort is a complete mess of an already insipid project yelling to be accepted as otherwise.

    • 20 Critic Score
    Each and every track on this album is so jam-packed with garbage pop flourishes that it can get exhausting.
