Lana Del Rey – Born To Die (2013)

If you put the memes aside, Lana Del Rey is actually a fantastic artist. I’ve been guilty of shitting on her myself (2021 edit: read that out loud mate, Jesus Christ) here on the site but off the back of surprisingly enjoying the “bonus” album Paradise (which I listened to first), I decided it would probably be best to check out the incredibly well received Born To Die.

Born To Die is best listened to with big headphones, to let Lana’s incredible voice take you away for an hour. The production, is perhaps expectedly, gorgeous; everything hangs perfectly in the balance and does not interfere with Lana’s voice. I look forward to checking out some of her other albums.
