Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon (Polydor Records) 2015
There’s more than meets the eye with Lana Del Rey’s 4th album. The soft and feebler sounds that assume the background position on Honeymoon should be perceived and embraced with the same enthusiasm as the voice that so effortlessly enchant us all the way through. We could call her a sex symbol of the modern ages, but that would put in danger a more accurate perception of what Del Rey, as an artist, really is. Sensuality and sexuality are not forced and impose features. They are the inevitable backdrop of Lana’s own existence. Honeymoon’s fustigating nature is a challenge that has as a reward a dazzling, at times feisty, always daring, and mesmerizing album.
