Lana Del Rey - 'Honeymoon'

6/10

Arriving just over a year since her acclaimed release 'Ultraviolence', Lana Del Rey has returned with another studio album packed with the despondent and subdued vocals she has become known for. While she hasn't proved to be the most eclectic of singers in the last decade, she has maintained a high level of quality over her previous two albums, so how will this new one measure up?

Opening up like the soundtrack to a 1950s Hollywood movie with title-track 'Honeymoon', the record is totally Del Rey by numbers. Soft productions, echoing vocals and a sense of impending oblivion upon every chorus, this release seems to mirror exactly what she has always been doing. While it does have its moments of magic, namely the brilliantly sung 'Terrance Loves You', much of the release shows a singer not willing to move on to new influences just yet.

It is still not a bad album, but considering how good 'Born To Die' and 'Ultravlioence' are, this really doesn't add anything to her legacy.
