"My baby used to dance underneath my architecture" - Lana Del Rey

Joe writes: Sometimes, rarely, I feel the need to listen to an album all the way through just to see what the artist is going to say next. I remember doing that with Eminem's debut album and also did it most of the way through Lana Del Rey's Lust For Life. There are 16 tracks on the album which is a shame - she could have made the year's best nine track album, and avoided any danger of slipping into self-parody. But even across 16 tracks she's still a cut above her contemporaries.

13 Beaches is my favourite track on the album:

My favourite Lana song since Video Games isn't on the album, seemingly because it was leaked. I love the lyric to Best American Record. Here's a cover from someone who sounds a lot like Lana:
