Drowned in Sound

If Born to Die was the script-defined character, then Paradise shows the darker routes through reality once the director yells “cut”.


Paradise is best enjoyed as a follow-up EP of b-sides and bonus material, equally poignant as its main predecessor, but a separate project altogether.


a lot of people keep discrediting Lana’s and this albums impact when it’s the reason a lot of todays artists exist, this was the album that got me into discovering new music and listening to albums in full, there’s not a single weak link on the record however the last four tracks of the first part aren’t as good as the other tracks

Como um paraíso a princesa Indie chega para ficar, em 2012 lançou um EP originário do seu álbum de sucesso que ainda continua a qualidade, com apenas um cover do clássico Blue Velvet cantado já por Bobby Vinton, Tony Bennett e The Clovers, e ela foi muito inteligente aqui já que ela se inspirou muito nessa vertente do Pop Clássico, visto em Bel Air (não sei porque mas acho que combinaria com a vibe do filme de O James e O ... read more


Born to Die and the Paradise EP for me are pop bibles, the production is so interesting and fun, it's hard to put out a project with 20+ songs and make it sound good and lana nailed it.


adoro esse álbum. ele é simplesmente perfeito do início ao fim. a produção é perfeita, as letras incríveis, consigo sentir tudo o que a Lana quis passar aqui. não sei expressar o quanto eu amo esse álbum.


I tried to listen to this reissue (The Paradise Edition) on three separate occasions, and I managed to fall asleep while listening to it every single time. I’m not trying to say the reissue is terrible because it made me fall asleep. I think it was okay. I was just very sleepy every time I tried to listen to it and give this reissue the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to ensure I gave a fair review and not half-arse sleeping through it.

I like how Lana encapsulated me in her world and ... read more
