Lana Del Rey released Born To Die and spent a great deal of time breaking pop music with her contentious but incredible songs and their sombre, devastated predilections. Melodic and melancholy, and emo before the emo revival, Born To Die resulted in a handful of pretty eternal singles, from "Born To Die" to "Blue Jeans".

There's just something about Lana Del Rey's 'proper' debut album that just seems...engrossing. There are many reasons for this: The haunting atmosphere, her evocative vocals...this is pretty much a massive 'F you' to modern pop music. This certainly isn't a love album by any means - in fact, it's the complete opposite. Much of the songs on this album makes you realise that Lana Del Rey is fuelled by sadness, and yet sung in that crisp, hypnotic voice, Born To Die pulls towards modern American gothic that runs through classic performers like Roy Orbison and Nancy Sinatra, and ultimately nails the warped sense of nostalgia that’s been part of the norm recently.
