Lana Del Rey Honeymoon Album Review

Artist reviewed by:

Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon is a passive, romantic journey through the pains of love and heartbreak. Elizabeth Grant A.K.A Lana Del Rey, released her fourth full length album on September 18, 2015 much to the delight of her fans. 



The first thing that struck me, was the use of real instruments. In the era of ProTools and virtual instruments, artists have the freedom of writing and recording music on the road. Although this is an incredible achievement, it sometimes leads to the overuse of virtual studio technology. For traditionalists, you will be pleasantly surprised by the mic-ed up guitar amps, orchestral instruments, and live horns.

The track “High by the Beach” is the obvious radio single, with its massive beat and hypnotic vocals. It demonstrates Del Rey’s ability to incorporate modern elements of music to her retro, cinematic style. Following “High by the Beach”, is a track I thoroughly enjoyed called “Freak”. Freak exhibits Del Rey’s amorous writing style.


“Flames so hot that they turn blue

Palms reflecting in your eyes, like an endless summer

That's the way I feel for you

If time stood still, I'd take this moment

Make it last forever”

Lyrics from "Freak"


I found Honeymoon to be a very relaxing and reflective listen. Honeymoon grants listeners the chance to listen to something completely original and different from everything in main stream music today. My only problem was that the last 5 tracks didn’t maintain the intensity and emotion that the first half of the album did. I love the originality of Lana Del Rey’s sound. It’s truly refreshing, but in future albums I’d like to see her try and broaden her sound, simply as an experiment. It may yield incredible results, but for now I will happily enjoy it for what it is.
