"Ultraviolence" So Far Receives Critical Acclaim

Recommended Posts

It's received an 81/100 on Metacritic so far which is a high number compared to Britney's, Katy's, Gaga's, Rihanna's, and other pop stars' usual scores. It's also Lana's highest scoring album so far on Metacritic.

Ultraviolence is the masked bacchanalia that finally unleashes the full potential lurking beneath the hype.

Overall, the writing feels sharper and stronger. Every chorus clicks, the melodies are uniformly beautiful, and they soar and swoop, the better to demonstrate Del Rey's increased confidence in her voice.

A record that’s a hundred times more cohesive than Born to Die.

Repeated listens reveal nuances, like the acoustic guitar bristling beneath the blues-rock verses of "Sad Girl" and the male backing vocals layering the final chorus of "Brooklyn Baby," but the album's steadfast narcotic tempo and Del Rey's languid delivery, doused in shoegaze-style reverb throughout, conjure a hazy picture of the singer swaying wearily in some sweltering sweat-lodge of a dive in the deep South.

Ultraviolence marks real progression: never has Del Rey sounded so compellingly crystalline on a set of recordings. Thematically, though, tracks can appear content to splash in the shallows.

I will forever flawlessly stan for Dan Auerbach production on this record. He fleshed out Lana's sound and made her the true Elusive Chanteuse :mhm: #LanaDelSlay

I love it! It's really her most solid album to date.. even though I still prefer the hip-hop influence of Born To Die, Ultraviolence is a much better record as a whole

 

It took a few spins to really get into it, but I'm growing to like most of the songs.
