Amazing follow-up, steadied my love for Lana and her music and made it grew up even more. Fresh like a summer breeze and hot like summer nights, got me feeling loose and feeling naughty. I love it.

FAVE TRACKS: Ride, Body Electric, Gods & Monsters, Cola, Burning Desire (bonus track).

LEAST FAVES: Blue Velvet, Yayo.
