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 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

Sep 21, 2014I was a big fan of the first album "Born to Die" but Ultraviolence tops it. There is a uniqueness to what Lana Del Rey is producing. HerI was a big fan of the first album "Born to Die" but Ultraviolence tops it. There is a uniqueness to what Lana Del Rey is producing. Her voice, phrasing and general sound are all individual. She sounds incredibly organic and authentic (an irony considering she has been labelled as "manufactured"). The subject matter of the songs themselves are interesting and engaging. It's not often that a collection of songs (as in the first album) written purely from a woman's perspective, can be so enticing as to draw the ear of a male audience, but Del Rey achieves this - no-one is safe from the allure of her voice!
This second album is well-paced, reminiscent and even more damaged than the first. There is a sadness pervading through the songs, a rueful resignation or poor choices made and lives taking unfavourable paths. There's also a dignity and a defiance. A heroic trashiness if you will.
This is an outstanding collection of tracks, never pandering to the radio crowd. When one looks at the other female icons of the day (GaGa, Beyonce, Shakira, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, etc) and the shallowness and vacuity of what they produce, it becomes clearer that Lana Del Rey is the only one flying the flag for true female artists these days. She deserves all the credit in the world for this and for the affecting experience of listening to her music.… Expand
