EDITORS’ NOTES

For the most part, Lana Del Rey’s fifth album is quintessentially her: gloomy, glamorous, and smitten with California. But a newfound lightness might surprise longtime fans. Each song on Lust feels like a postcard from a dream: She fantasizes about 1969 (“Coachella - Woodstock In My Mind”), outruns paparazzi on the Pacific Coast Highway (“13 Beaches”), and dances on the H of the Hollywood sign (“Lust for Life” feat. The Weeknd). She even duets with Stevie Nicks, the queen of bittersweet rock. On “Get Free,” she makes a vow to shift her mindset: "Now I do, I want to move/Out of the black, into the blue.”

Really good album

Not as consistent as Honeymoon, but a step in a different direction for her that can spice up her discography, especially with songs like Cherry, In My Feelings, and Get Free. The topics she introduces in this album are also quite different and not the typical lana lyrics most of us are used to hearing. This album is a grower, especially the second half, but once you learn to take in what she trying to tell, it becomes an amazing ride of optimism.

Update: This album is quite good, but I stand with what I said, it’s not as consistent in terms of lyrics, beats, and overall aesthetic. The second half of the album however, is superior to the first which is odd because the second half is the slowest. It’s a good album to listen to when you’re feeling a bit down, especially with the last 3 tracks which are equally amazing.

Otherworldly

Lana's music has always been so transcendental. This album, just like most of her previous albums, is a pastiche of 50’s Hollywood music and 21st-century Indie pop. The leitmotif of sad-core is particularly profound in Lust for Life...thanks Lana.
