Best of 2014 - Ultraviolence - Lana Del Rey

Best of 2014

Song: Black Beauty
Artist: Lana Del Rey
Album: Ultraviolence

With her sophomore album Ultraviolence, Lana Del Rey proved to be the artist I thought she might be.  Her debut Born to Die was great, but Ultraviolence showed a new dimension to her songcraft and abilities at creating full, dramatic moods with honest emotion and storytelling prowess out of her Lynchian, Hipster death-spiral "Narco Swing."

Huh?  (Just listen to Ultraviolence.)

Ultraviolence casts such an enchanting spell I wonder how she can follow it up.  But then again, I couldn't have imagined Ultraviolence after Born to Die.  This is a special record, can't wait to hear what she does next.
