Lana Del Rey is such a beautiful woman, and one of the few female singers I do like to listen to. She's only released one studio album so far ("Born to Die"), but you're getting a great sample of her music by picking up the tracks "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans". If you don't like those two I don't recommend listening to her album, but you may be intrigued. Lana's music is sometimes a little over-processed and could do with a bit more genuity, but I don't think it's cliched. Warning, her music is often classified as "sadcore" genre so don't expect to be up dancing lol. It's all pretty down-beat.
"Video Games" is a beautiful track, love the harps and the range of Lana's voice here. This song brings to the fore that odd melding of Lana's 60's glamour/gangster style with current pop: good thing or no? I can't decide. The lyrics and music of "Video Games" start transporting you to the 1960s (especially if you watch the video, it's pure '60s Americana) and then she throws in this line "go play your video games". It's like WHOA! whipped back to the 21st century. Jarring, but it keeps me listening over and over trying to decide what to make of it. All and all it makes a different take on the traditional pop love song.
Lana Del Rey one of the few (maybe only) female singers at present who is holding my interest (aside from being my make-up inspiration lol), but "Video Games" has such odd lyrics I have to say just 4 stars here. But go listen and see what you think.
Lana Del Rey has recently become popular due to her single video games; it has really made her a well known artist and is even popular across the pound in the United Kingdom! It’s a great album and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for some good new music. Worth the money! Happy listening if you decide to buy which you should!! Had not heard her until recently but am now addicted to the song “video games” very good. You also get another of her songs called blue jeans. This is good but in my opinion not as good. :)
