Album Review – Honeymoon by Lana del Rey

Rating – 8.5 out of 10

May Jailer only knew a few chords on acoustic guitar and she created an album. Then, she changed her name to Lizzy Grant (inspired by her real name, Elizabeth Grant), and released a sophomore album, only to have it be taken out of stores because her record label couldn’t fund the sale of it.

Then, she renamed herself Lana del Rey and became known. In 2012, she released an album titled Born to Die that was sweet and beautiful. It’s music for frolicking. It doesn’t have a whole lot of depth, but it’s touching somehow.

Then, in June of 2014, del Rey released the album Ultraviolence. It’s more complex than Born to Die. Ultraviolence is dark, moody, mysterious. It’s music for an overcast day.

I think the album covers sort of serve as metaphors for this contrast – The Born to Die
