"Tell me i'm your National Anthem"

The perfect thot pop music.I can only imagine this being some people's life soundtrack.

Lana 's debut studio album is actually better then her first project, and that's simply because it's definetly mixed better and she also shows somewhat of a vocal improvement and more variety. As far as i can tell, this album was mega hyped when it first came out and it was basically destined to hit the mainstream really hard. Kind of ironic if you think about it, since it's called "Born To Die", this record was born to win. With that in mind, you can definetly expect some mediocre/alright writing, but this actually does have some clever little details sprinkled up on a few tracks here and there.

As a quick, yet pretty important example, i can talk about the trio of songs that contains "Off To The Races", "Blue Jeans" & "Video Games". They all respectively go back in time relationship-wise. The first of the three represents a relationship that is based on nightlife, partying & drugs, which means it l's supposed to portray the kind of connection you have in your 20's-early 30's. Lana is intentionally using "a high voice so it shows how she is trying to get more money from mothafucking daddy. Blue Jeans" tackles a teenager love, with the boyfriend eventually leaving when he touches all the "bad guy" businesses, like selling drugs and gambling. "Video Games" is portraying a "first love" kind of thing, which explains a lot of the weird writing on here ("bestest", etc.).

Meanwhile i generally like most of this record, and it really doesn't feel that boring or long, i gotta say that the themes and lyrics are SOMETIMES kind of repetitive and annoyinnlg even. A lot, if not all, of the tracklist is basically saying that "OOOH HE'S A BAD BOAI, HE GOT MONEH, I WANT MONEH", but if you see past that and choose to ignore it, you discover a diamond in the rough. It isn't a wow debut, but it definetly seems like one that offered a lot of promise regarding her talent.

GF Rating: 80/100
