"BORN TO DIE" . . .
My favourite album at the moment has to be "Born To Die" by Lana del Rey.
Lana seems to have courted rather a lot of controversy, from the fact that she apparently wasn't the new girl on the block she pretended to be, to her big bloated lips, but I happen to think she's a really talented singer-songwriter. I bought her album in mp3 format on a whim about a week ago and this weekend I decided to give it a whirl while I was in work doing overtime. It's a great album. I love her vocals, the haunting melodies, even her shitty attempts at rapping (well, I THINK that was what she was trying to do!).
"Video Games" is an absolute classic as far as I'm concerned, but there's so many other good tracks on there too. I can definitely see myself listening to this album for a long time to come, and I look forward to seeing what else she can come out with next.
Are you a lover or hater of Lana? What's your favourite album at the moment? Please share in the comments section... ;-)
