About this deal

Born to Die' stands as a testament to Del Rey's artistic prowess, showcasing the depth of her evocative storytelling and her ability to transport listeners to a world laced with cinematic mystique. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. Million Dollar Man is an old time dirge ballad with an undercurrent of sadness, and is extremely classy. Warned by other reviews, I ran mine through my record cleaning machine before playing, and was pleasantly surprised.

The album artwork is a visual homage to the artist's vintage Hollywood aesthetic, seamlessly complementing the music's thematic essence. Born To Die" follows Lana's first single "Video Games" which began its life online in July accompanied by a video created by Lana. O álbum é extremamente icônico na cultura sad/indie, com letras que falam sobre amor, poder, drogas, decepções amorosas, vida líquida na contemporaneidade e a efusiva arte de bridar o caos que existe dentro de cada um de nós. I looked at what the internet was saying and the reviews seemed oddly mixed between those who said every track was great and those who seemed to have some sort of a grudge against her that no-one could properly define.

Sem dúvidas, a sonoridade de Del Rey fica muito genuína no formato vinil, tornando sua voz expressiva e carinhosamente semelhante as grandes divas motown dos anos 50/60. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

At this point you may think there is a theme of depression sinking into the songs, but this song is hard to describe because it somehow manages to be downbeat and uplifting at the same time. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our site, provide personalised content and advertising, analyse our traffic, and ensure you see more of what you love. Her voice is not a perfect instrument; there's a hitch in her voice which is occasionally disruptive, but she manoeuvres around it pretty well, and her ability to move from deep sophisticate to adolescent wanna-be is frequently striking. Million Dollar Man is a perfect indictment of a certain kind of flashy man who women will fall for, only to be mistreated.Lucky Ones is definitely the song that should end the album, a gentle ballad that slips comfortably into the silence at the end of the CD. I only had to listen to a snatch of one of Lana's songs, and I knew she was something special, something exciting from a musical realm that has been entirely stale for the past decade. There seems little point in reviewing an album that has already been reviewed by so many people, but a few thoughts are perhaps worth writing down, given the whirl of misinformation and hype and hating that has gone on.

With just a couple of songs Lana Del Rey has completely rejuvenated and revalidated the whole of popular music. The vinyl format heightens the emotive atmosphere of Lana Del Rey's dream-pop and trip-hop soundscapes, immersing the listener in the artist's distinctive sonic world. National Anthem is a playful song that on the surface has some lines that might make you think it's a clumsy way of celebrating the money and fame worship you hear in some other singers' songs, but the OTT way it's done and some of the lyrics, once closely listened to, clearly show it's a send up. A must-have for fans of Lana Del Rey, and an enthralling experience for listeners who appreciate emotionally-charged, atmospheric music.Del Rey’s bewitching, old Hollywood allure shines through in 'Born to Die', an album that serves as a masterful tableau of love, sadness, and timeless allure. my friend has just kindly gifted me born to die paradise edition for my birthday however the only vinyl in there is paradise.
