Lana Del Rey - 'Born To Die'
A predictable theme rescued by a captivating delivery
LDR’s ascent towards her predetermined throne at the high court of all music ever continues apace with her almost-as-good follow-up to ‘Video Games’. While its lyrical themes may come as no surprise to anyone except Peter Pan or the immortal, its sultry delivery is captivating enough to redeem, and besides, most of the eight million YouTubers were probably just watching her make out with tattoo boy anyway.
