Albumul meu preferat este „Born to Die”, acesta fiind cel de-al doilea album al artistei Lana Del Rey. Albumul a fost lansat pe data de 27 ianuarie 2012 fiind un album baroque pop, având influente alternative, indie pop și trip pop. Eu l-am „descoperit” în 2013, la sugestia unei prietene. Pot spune că am fost fermecată de la primele acorduri ale melodiei „Born to Die” datorită vocii Lanei și a versurilor care descriu perfect starea pe care vor să o inspire.

Prima melodie de pe album și cea care m-a făcut să o îndrăgesc pe Lana spune că scopul existenței noastre este să murim (=Born to Die) și că trebuie să ne bucurăm de timpul pe care îl avem. Această baladă vorbește de o relație, am putea spune, osândită.

Melodia cu numărul 3 de pe album este „Blue Jeans”. Este o baladă lentă cu influențe hip hop. Această melodie descrie senzația pe care o ai alături de persoana iubită și te introduce într-o atmosfera deosebită, aș putea spune, desprinsă dintr-un film.

Melodia mea preferată de pe acest album este „Dark Paradise”. Nu pot spune ce iubesc mai mult la această melodie: timbrul timid, falsetul lin și ușor, versurile care spun că atunci când găsești persoana potrivită, absența ei e mai mult decât dureroasă sau titlul care pare să îți spună să te retragi în propriul paradis. Petru mine, toate acestea reprezintă combinația perfectă.

Apreciez că fiecare piesă vorbește de câte o relație (prietenie, dragoste neîmpărtășită sau chiar relația dintre decembrie și mai), fiecare melodie fiind atât de diferită în propriul ei mod. „Born to Die” e genul de album pe care îl asculți iar și iar chiar dacă știi fiecare vers și fiecare notă.

"Born to Die" has a film noir mood to it, with the incidental music of most songs reminiscent of the 1900s, especially "Blue Jeans" and "National Anthem". Indeed, Del Rey attempts to, and succeeds, at impressing listeners with the diverse emotions and melodies of her songs. Relationships seem to be the focus of this album, with Del Rey covering almost every type of relationship, be it friendship, the relationship between lovers, or an illicit May-December relationship.

In "Born to Die", Del Rey sings about living life on the "wild side", with death being the purpose of living, and as such, people should "try to have fun in the meantime". With the song's slow tempo and percussion background, listeners will find themselves swaying to the beat.

The next song "This is What Makes Us Girls", Del Rey sings about getting into trouble with her friends, and shares what she used to do with her girlfriends. The song started with an upbeat tempo, with tales of Del Rey and her friends breaking into hotels and drinking on the job (with the boss). However, the song soon takes a darker turn when Del Rey finally reveals that she was mixing with the bad crowd because they were the only friends she had, and she was soon sent off "when stuff got bad". The twist in this song is what makes it stand out, as Del Rey weaves a compelling and sad story of being forced to leave her friends, invoking both sadness and sympathy in her listeners.

"Born To Die" is the second album released by American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey in 2012, and it can be said that this album is her best yet. Comprising of songs from a variety of genres, ranging from indie pop to folk to alternative rock, Del Rey proves once again that she is indeed a lyrical genius in just 15 songs. Not only that, Del Rey shows off her vocal range in, singing in falsetto in "Lolita", and crooning "Off to the Races" in her signature husky voice. All in all, "Born to Die" captivates you with its mesmerising lyrics and catchy soundtracks, and the album's only failing? It's merely 49.28 minutes long. However, the quality of the songs more than make up for the lack of duration, and both fans of Lana Del Rey and new listeners alike will fall in love with this album.
