2012 release from the New York-based singer, songwriter and performer. She has described herself as a "gangsta Nancy Sinatra" and cites Britney Spears, Thomas Newman and Bruce Springsteen as her musical influences. Lana Del Rey's direct influences were visual as well as musical; David Lynch, soundtracks for `50s black and white movies, the whirring sound of the Ferris at Coney Island, fame itself.
I really liked "Born To Die" but I have to admit that Paradise is just over the top! Her lyrics/ singing style are incredible, just hauntingly, disturbingly, amazing.
So unique, I haven't heard something so "polar" in a long while, so vile, yet beautiful, so innocent, yet corrupt. I'm sure you get my point.. Either way, this album is a HUGE treat to me, and I have it in heavy rotation and it just keeps getting better! This is no flash in the pan, there is serious talent here, this album has lots of staying power and a classic feel
This is one the most beautiful records produced by an (new) American artist in a long while. Her torch song delivery mixed with all of the 'big" modern sounds of today, goes right for the heart....and the throat. Make no mistake about it, this young woman is an artist and if she never makes another album she has delivered to the listening public an album of truth and beauty and depth, through the medium of "pop" music. This has got a great sound with melodies and lyrics that stay in your mind.
A deep well of young/female desolation and sadness tinged with toughness and desire is present in her music. Her voice and style resonate with American mythical culture. Gorgeous!
Her videos are very good and the new one, "Ride" (the long story version) is even better than anything else from this album. This video is one of the best ever made about the dark heart of the "American Dream". Musically, visually and psychologically stunning.....David Lynch should be proud to have influenced this artist.
