yawn. I suppose she had potential but this album is not even surprisingly bland.

Really good review, best I've seen here in a while. I've been really looking forward to this but the clips I've heard have curbed my expectations quite a bit.

She's a'ight. I never got the hate for her. She's enjoyable but not enough to make me keep wanting to
listen to her. I guess a lot of it is her image, which is a pretty cool one of retro classy indie girl
with pouty lips that and lens-effect videos that the Tumblr generation would appreciate.

Still getting the album, but kinda disappointed to hear it's just average.

Love "Off To The Races", though.

There's this whole 60's nostalgia thing that I love about the title cut and Video Games. I'm a sucker for those strings and the sweeping emotion.

As for the SNL appearance, she just came off as really nervous. I'm probably one of the few people who don't care how an artist sounds live. I don't care if artists use studio trickery, I don't give a shit about their image, and I don't care how pretty she is. I only care about how the music sounds when I hear it. Period.

If you look at Born To Die as anything but a really decent pop album, then you are only trying to fool yourself.

Good review. Mind-POS'd

if you strip everything away, its 4 perfect songs in the beginning followed by 8 pieces of repetitive shit that proves that she has run out of ideas

but all this controversy around intrigues me her and i can actually listen to this album enjoyably front to back for some reason

shes just another one of those katy perry/britney spears molds, no real talent but they're just... there

Video Games is fucking terrible so I can only assume the rest of this is too. She seems to be more about appearance than actual musical substance.

I'd still hit it.
I'll check this out one day, but today is not that day.

I just watched her SNL performance. Not bad. Same average poppy bullshit as most. Only thing that bothered me a lot was the way she moved around like she had a stick in her ass and sang "wit" instead of "with." Also, Nacy Sinatra was way hotter in her day.

Just wanted to say (again) that this is a really good review, Adam. I'm going to avoid this like the plague for as long as I can... Everything I've heard so far has failed to interest me in the slightest =/
