A lyrical and instrumental improvement from Born To Die, but Ultraviolence also shows how Lana relies on one sound to carry her throughout an album that was too long for it's own good. Two or three tracks should have been cut to slim down the project in order to make the album seem a little bit more varied than it actually is. Her songwriting is matured compared to how it was, but there are still some pretty stupid lines. And with the production, which I can understand why some would say that this is overproduced, I actually like the introduction of more guitars and more prominent drums. It shows a bit more versatility from the one-trick pony type of artist that Del Rey can seem to be.
Even with all the praise that I can give Ultraviolence, it just doesn't sound as fresh as Born To Die. What is done here has been done before, sounding new and interesting.

fav tracks: Sad Girl, Money Power Glory
