• LANA DEL RAY "Honeymoon" 2LP
Lana Del Rey returns with her fourth album (her third major release), "Honeymoon", and its a slight change in pace from both "Born to Die" and "Untlraviolence". The music production slightly smoother and brighter than it was on those two albums, but the lyrical contents is about the same though. Here she shows a little bit more emotions than like she did on "Young and Beautiful" from the Great Gatsby. The brighter landscape can sometime mislead listeners into what the songs are about, but make no mistake its still about heartbreak (hey it has worked for Sade for over 20 years), but she really shines at heartbreak. The best songs are the first five and the last four songs, I especially enjoy the "The Blackest Day", "24" and "Swan Song" which are the last three before the final song. Lana Del Rey makes excellent torch songs and songs about lament that I have ever heard since Cass Elliot.
