FAVORITE LANA DEL REY ALBUM?


3-albums

 

Updated: Since the poll was posted, a fourth Lana Del Rey album is on its way. Will her new album, Lust For Life, exceed her previous three?

Original article: Lana Del Rey has managed to put out three album since the 2012 debut. And since the producer and co-writers play a major part in Lana’s sound, she’s got three quite distinctive records even if her lyrics are centered around the same themes.

So, if we ignore the unofficial albums, bootlegs and her work before Born To Die as well as the mini-album “Paradise” – What’s your favorite album of her? Comments are welcome!

    Whoever writes these short things does a great job. Would love alot more of it!
    I’ll vote as soon as I’ve actually bothered listening to Honeymoon.

    After three days or so of listening to Honeymoon, my vote still goes to Ultraviolence.
    Never been that much into Born To Die, and though Honeymoon is astoundingly beautiful but I keep falling asleep at the end; I don’t know why.

    If if BTD Paradise then that wins easily for me. Total toss up between Ultraviolence and Honeymoon, they’re a close second.

    Such a tough decision. All of her albums have a unique sound to them, instrumentally. I like all three (four if you count “Paradise”) but I’m going with “Ultraviolence” since it has some of the most beautiful vocal harmonies I have ever heard. Not to mention one of my favourite tracks of all-time, “West Coast”. However, I still think “Born to Die” & “Paradise” are tied with “Ultraviolence”, since they have some of my favourite Lana tracks on them. It was hard to choose!

    Born To The Die Paradise Edition will always be the best work she put out. UV and HM (which I love) cannot compare to the work of art BTD was. Every song was perfection, and I don’t think anybody will ever forget about how beautiful it is

    I first knew Lana when I heard her BTD album, I got really excited for Ultraviolence but got disappointed upon release, ultraviolence sounded very different from BTD, it sounded cheap and rushed tbh. Honeymoon was kind of a mix of both but leans more towards Ultraviolence. I choose Born To Die.

    Like I wrote – AKA (Elizabeth Grant AKA Lana Del Rey) should be here and I really consider it as her proper debut. Even if she actually released Sirens and maybe some other EP before it. Because of its release status (plans of its re-release were abandoned) it’s overlooked, and that’s a shame because it includes some of her best works. Kill Kill. Oh Say Can You See. Alternate version of Yayo which is universally considered better than the one officially released. Kinda house-y (not in Gervais way lol – and with Arabian music sample!) Brite Lites. Guitarish For K. There’s also some pretty psychedelic stuff on this record. It’s sad we’ll never get to hear this stuff live. :((( Shit, if this album would succeed she would be VERY different by now.

    Everyone should hear it, even if you’re not necessarily her fan (you might change your mind) and especially if you’re her fan. I keep forgetting how good it is, I think I need to put it on my regular cellphone playlist or something.

    Choosing between Born To Die and Ultra is “who do you love more? your mommy or your daddy?” for me :D I would compare it to the other question “Lana Del Rey or Jessie Ware?”. I run Jessie’s fanclub for 5 years and she’s basically my mate but I hate comparing her to Lana…. I know as a pretentious indiehead I should say “well, obviously Ultraviolence, because it’s her ROCK album”. Well, it’s not really rock, maybe dream pop and not very Beach House-y either. I love West Coast and Shades – two of her best singles, but my only problem with this album is that I expected it’s CO-WRITTEN with Dan Auerbach and it would feel bluesy. But apparently Dan only touched the final product to make it a bit more “alternative”. I remember complaining how Sad Girl and Pretty When I Cry sound almost identically. But there are songs I mentioned, Brooklyn Baby, maybe Cruel World and there’s this magical track called Old Money. And there’s great mashup album of Ultraviolence LP with other songs by ToToM and friends, Ultraviolent Boots. Big recommendation!

    But Born To Die brings more memories! Every track brings me back to this crazy 2012. Well, it was my album of the year back then and i only placed Ultra at #7 respectively. I think about my love-hate relationship with her at first, about the time i spent being active in her fanbase, meeting fans who are close to her, then meeting her in person during Paradise era. Oh, off-topic note: fans usually consider Paradise a separate album, but it’s not that important. Which album I like more? I don’t really know. As much as I like Emile Haynie, I think he really ruined Born To Die a lot with using the same sample from Blue Jeans on every track. Listen to the demos. Her voice feels unprofessional (and much different than on AKA, interesting) on them, okay, but I still like some of them more than album versions because they don’t have the idiotic sample where it doesn’t belong! Million Dolllar Man is MUCH better as a demo. Radio is better as a demo. This Is What Makes Us Girls is hard to recognize! I wonder how this album would sound if Haynie never put his hands on it…

    You can tell I tried to love Honeymoon in the same way as Born To Die and Ultra and I just couldn’t, that’s why I’m nervous about this new record because I feel the same again… :/ I wish she would release something and I wouldn’t stop thinking about it for days, like before. Will it even happen again? :/

    Shit, I really wrote a lot :D I could write a book about her.. Real talk – I am actually willing to do so in the longtime future. I hope someone won’t be quicker, but I think as pro music writer and person who used to be in her fanbase I have a wider perspective than the others.

    TL;DR: Elizabeth Grant AKA Lana Del Rey is very underappreciated album and everyone should listen to it. I can’t really choose between Born To Die and Ultraviolence. Amen.
