That song videogames is nice and smooth. I think way to much emphasis is put on her style, look and videos, rather than the actual music.
Try and listen to these songs without the video, especially for the first time. The whole aesthetic and visuals seem manufactured...which resonates along with the music. At the end of the day, (at least for me) it's about the music, I don't think she is doing stuff that's too spectacular in that realm. She is more like Lady Gaga than Bjork, by that I mean valuing visuals over musicality, and one influences the other. I think she is going to blow up, but not by the merit of her musical prowess and ability. I'm interested to give her album a spin without the 1950s Hollywood film clips over it all.
She also seems to be going along the same route as Odd Future with the over-encompassing image assertion. Although Odd future made killer beats and have incredible raps.
LDR might be style over substance...but I'll see how her full LP sits.
Just my opinion.

I agree with listening to her music without watching her videos. The music behind her voice is also quality stuff.

Okay upon first listen I find this album to be quite boring...
Its not bad but its also not great… The only track i really like is videogames.
I’ll give it a few more spins but i’m not really that impressed with what i’m listening….
Album not on waffles = prolly not out yet = officially out Jan 27 UK Jan 31 North America = you confuse me.
EDIT: Unless you mean the EP which is just the first 4 songs.

Thats "Lana Del Ray aka Lizzy Grant" the shelved 200(9) or something album, that was brought out later once hype hyped up. Some songs are reworked and upgraded for the forthcoming album. This similar tracks etc. The real deal is in 4 days amigo.
Wow apparently the files I have are demos and some of the songs are not even from her at all... I feel like i've been trolled.
