"Lana Del Rey is sharp-witted, aiming to take her place among her predecessors. She is Morrissey with a better pout; she is Katy Perry with the blues. She’s the daughter Twin Peaks’ Laura Palmer never lived to have. Del Rey dares you to believe that she’s all trouble and impure pleasure, even as she crafts music so darkly inviting, it enters you like a knife between your ribs."

  1. Ken Tucker says “There’s something weirdly mean about all the negative press Lana Del Rey has received before Born To Die was even released. It’s like high-school level meanness, directed at someone who wants to be a star and is really going for it. It’s like being punished for ambition.” View in High-Res
