This is like Born To Die's younger brother that acts just like her, but isn't getting noticed, so he just gave up, and now is hiding in the woods, The Lana Stan Woods. Only Lana stans and her 6 studio albums live over there, they all live in harmony. Then comes Paradise.

Paradise feels like an emotionless version of Born To Die. It’s like all of the tracks here were scraps from the previous record.

BEST TRACKS: Ride, Blue Velvet
WORST TRACKS: Cola, Body Electric, Yayo
