    You’ve [Lana Del Rey] found your own style and run with it. It’s amazing to see someone so free and in control.

    It’s stubbornly retro, and clearly that pleases the provocateur in Del Rey.

    With a little chopped-and-screwed modernity, hints of jazz and Morricone-like soundscapes, there’s a timelessness to Honeymoon, and an intrigue that should linger longer than her previous LPs.

    Honeymoon is by far Del Rey’s most beautifully made and cohesive album.

    Under the cover of midnight, Del Rey has been exploring big ideas about eroticism, drugs, myth, the empty promise of YOLO, what it means to be a woman, and the American soul.

    No matter her self-presentation, her grip, the music is relentlessly Sad--and exhausting in its sadness.

    Del Rey plays a winning strike with Honeymoon's four opening songs: powerful ballads, lain on ethereal and soft arrangements made of smooth strings and jazzy winds.... If 'High By The Beach' still can sustain its four-minutes length, the same unfortunately cannot be said for the most of the following songs.

There is such a contrast within the album structure, from the slow ballads of the first four songs to the trap influenced middle part of the album to the jazz influence of the end of the album. Lana really showed originality and no care towards generating hits just bringing forth a masterpiece. Expand

It brings elements of BTD and Ultraviolence as well as new, unique ones. 24 is different from all Lana's songs, and the emotion evoked by the violins is beautiful. Expand

I don't think she is evoluting at each album, because since the first time I heard Born To Die I felt this woman's power. And that already was really strong, just like she did in Ultraviolence and is doing with Honeymoon. Expand

    I was worried releasing a brand new album so soon after Ultraviolence that we would feel over-saturated, this is not the case. Honeymoon is aI was worried releasing a brand new album so soon after Ultraviolence that we would feel over-saturated, this is not the case. Honeymoon is a blend of Born To Die, Paradise, and Ultraviolence with some new elements thrown in. This creates my second favorite album from her behind Ultraviolence. Top tracks are the title track, Terrence Loves You, Freak, and Salvatore. One of my favorites of the year so far. Expand
