MojoAug 20, 2014While her David Lynch qualities remain, there's also something of the masochistic Lars Von Trier heroine in the resigned drowse of these songs. [Sep 2014, p.92]
Jun 16, 2014In 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.

Lana del Rey e Dan são umaDepois de certo tempo com preconceitos com esse álbum, finalmente decidi ouvi-lo e perceber oque eu tinha perdido. Lana del Rey e Dan são uma ótima combinação, a melancolia natural de Lana del Rey continua desde seu debut sob novo nome porém com o rock psicodélico de Dan, oque poderia dar errado?
Lana explora a guitarra em todo álbum, com toda a inspiração no hip hop e uma notável semelhança com AM do Arctic Monkeys na estética toda rock n' roll com direito á jaquetas e cigarros oque, notavelmente, Lana já tinha nos mostrado em Born To Die, mas desta vez mostrando talvez uma sonoridade mais "obscuras", impossível não se apaixonar por esse álbum, é uma pequena chama que realmente nunca se acaba.… Expand

Lana takesThis album is one of those albums that are/must be considered a masterpiece (like Madonna's Like A Prayer). It's like a fairytale. Lana takes us to a different time. The songs are emotional and beautifully composed with dark tunes -- "Lana Del Rey style". They are actual poems by Lana Del Rey turned into songs. Her voice is seductive and sad at the same time. Something about this album makes you feel like waking up after a good dream. During he day you'll ask yourself "was I dreaming or was it reality".… Expand

The album flows along well in Lana Del Rey's self-described narco-swing style of music, while her songs retain the darker topics that originated in Born To Die and Paradise.

Here, it's more diverse, though most of them create the same atmosphere. The vocals are quite enchanting, thanks in no small part to Lana's voice, which is just as beautiful, sad, and eerie as it has always been.
While these things contribute to making this the great album that it is, the lyrics are what truly elevate it. Full of melancholy, reflection, and nostalgia. An album about broken people, love, happiness, the America of decades ago, and the women who inhabited it.
Perhaps my only problem with this album is how it - sometimes - felt repetitive.
Deciding what my favorite tracks in this album are is a bit meaningless. There's too many of them. Besides, the album is best experienced as a whole. Also, try to get the deluxe edition; it has four bonus tracks, two of which are pretty great, and the other two are still worth it.
I liked Born to Die when i heard it a year or two ago, and became very excited for her career and what she might have in store for us. With Dan Auerbach as producer, this album exceeded it's predecessor in more ways than one. I'm still as excited as i previously was, and i hope she gets to create more wonderful work.… Expand
