• LANA DEL RAY "Born to Die" 2LP
Del Rey pushed boundaries with this album, exceeding what the average person would deem melodramatic. The album’s title itself is oozing theatrical energy—you mean to tell me that you exist for the sole purpose of no longer existing? She takes on a full throttle approach to love—if the average person falls for someone, Del Rey dives. She’s not incomplete without her partner, she’s “nothing” (“Without You”). She won’t be in love until the end of her life, but “until the end of time” (“Blue Jeans”).
