Amazing cover shot by Glynis Selina Arban, which Editor-In-Chief Noah Callahan-Bever claims is courtesy of a skillful lighting set up and not Photoshop. The accompanying article sheds some light on the mysterious Lana Del Rey. Like many people, I was blown away by the audio visual combination of her timeless voice and sexy pout with home movies/found footage that made  “Video Games” an internet sensation (and in my mind an instant classic). When “Blue Jeans” popped up a month or so later building on the same formula and adding an epic chorus and some hip-hop swagger I was sold. But with two singles that big, crafting a whole album from the same blueprint can be tricky. So while I’m not in love with every track on her debut Born to Die  I think her talent is undeniable and the highlights are good enough to make me quickly forget the missteps.
