I just discovered Lana Del Rey. I had heard a lot of hype about her so was interested in checking her out. My first impression was that her voice is very deep, low for a woman and her range doesn't reach any great heights. Her live performances are quirky, very interesting but to those who don't really have a broad music range and have listened to a wide variety of artist's music would say she can't sing for shit and that she sucks. However, I personally find her music style refreshing in the sense that it's not generic and something different to listen to. Anyway I downloaded her album 'Born To Die' and there's some great songs on this album. Everyone's opinion will differ about Lana.

Tracklisting:

01 Born to Die
02 Off to the Races
03 Blue Jeans
0
4 Video Games
0
5 Diet Mountain Dew
06 National Anthem
07 Dark Paradise
0
8 Radio
09 Carmen
10 Million Dollar Man
11 Summertime Sadness

12 This Is What Makes Us Girls

13. Without You [Deluxe Edition]

14. Lolita [Deluxe Edition]

15. Lucky Ones [Deluxe Edition]




Standout tracks for me were - Born To Die, Off To The Rsaces, Blue Jeans, Video Games, Diet Mountain Dew, Dark Paradise, Summertime Sadness, Lucky Ones. Each song was well produced in my opinion, something I want Delta's new album to have, lots of power in the music, strings, haunting melodies etc. Each song had me intrigued. Lyrically, the album was quite bizarre but that just goes with her quirky nature I find, I may not understand it but like that she provides something different. Some songs however almost sounded identical, her voice can be interpreted as like having a bad headache lol, but it's a very melodramatic album, perfect for the moods when you're not in the best mood. Worth a listen for sure. Would love to hear other people's thoughts...

I honestly am so in love with Lana. Born To Die is just sensational. Video Games is right up there as well, Dark Paradise is wonderful but my favourite song is Off To The Races. I love the lyrics of Carmen but I just can't get into the song. I need to get the deluxe version for the extra 3 songs.

I first heard about her on myspace, then I heard about her saturday night live performance. While I like all kinds of music, I think you need to be in the right mood to listen to her music... if that makes any sense

Kind Regards,

I know what you mean, I can only take this in small doses, otherwise it can be a bit too dreary/draining.

I haven't heard all the tracks, but my personal favourites are 'Born To Die' and 'National Anthem'.

Perfect chilled / tired music...puts you to sleep in a good way. Very relaxing.

don't like the hype about her, but she's got a great voice, though

Funny how my favourites have changed since I first heard the album. Without You & Million Dollar Man are probably my top 2.

My favourite song is This Is What Makes Us Girls. Have that song on repeat. She's definitely different, which I like :)

Not an official cover for the song, but I like it :)

If ever there was an artist I just dont get, she is it.... so much hype and I have to say all her singles thus far have been nothing to write home about imo...

But I guess she is doing something right.....

I only discovered her through the hype. Thought I'd give her a listen. I can't describe how this album appeals to me, it just does. That's a good thing I think when an album has the ability to make you want to listen over and over and over again.

She is fucking amazing. I actually feel a connection to her and her music which doesn't happen a lot. My favourites are Dark Paradise, Summertime Sadness, Lolita and Lucky Ones.
