New record from quasi-Lynchian pop star Lana Del Rey. Honeymoon has the trademark Del Rey vibe: sunny production and subject matter (the lead single is titled ‘High By The Beach’ for example), but with a pitch dark undercurrent carried through the haunted vocals. Released as a CD, or as double black vinyl.

1/10 Dan John Customer review, 19th September 2015

Aren’t Honeymoon’s supposed to be happy and enjoyable? I suppose that’s the not-so-subtle wry joke, given that this is the usual slow to mid-paced ballad wallowing. It’s so deeply boring and samey throughout, not just in the vocal delivery, the topic of the songs, but also the instrumentation and arrangements. The songs just blur together into one smudge of distant emotions and turgid noise.

How and why this album exists….and for who? Tasteless, damn fools crying into chardonnay? It’s also soooo long at 65 minutes, which is inexplicable, given that there’s plenty of filler that could easily be trimmed. I really can’t find any positives about this, all of the songs are forgettable, there are no hooks whatsoever. The fact the album ends with a cover of ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ serves to a) by comparison highlight the utter lack of songwriting chops on this album and b) prove how even with good source material Lana serves up a piss-poor cover that is borderline embarrassing for so many reasons. She adds nothing to the song.

She should have quit after ‘Video Games’ for her own sake and all of ours.
