    Love this girl, I have every intention of buying this album. Her EP is at #11 on iTunes, and she’s still hardly known here.

    At first she seemed like another overrated Indie artist that the Pop fanboys were gushing over but I’ve come to appreciate her style. “Born to Die” and “Video Games” are two beautifully written songs. I’ll be checking for her album.

    I hope she doesn’t become one of those lost cause singers ala Jessie J who receive alot of buzz because everyone believes they’ll dominate or SLAY but will eventually end up making mediorce music in the long run.

    She could be the next Feist or Florence Welch.

    I feel like the internet is overhyping this bitch, 

    fixed.

    I do really like “Video Games,” “Blue Jeans,” and “National Anthem,” though.

    There’s just something about her that doesn’t click with me. Her interviews make me cringe, her look is fake and her music seems forced. She seems as manufactured as Katy Perry or Rihanna. I will give her a chance, but I just can’t buy into her “sexy version of Amy Winehouse with a dash of Nancy Sinatra with thin lips” thing yet, not until I hear a full-length album.

    I agree about Lana being an extremely manufactured
    pop artist. I know she has already gained support among the hipster/indie crowds;
    but she still has an uphill battle to become an authentic artist in my eyes.
    Del Rey is trying way too hard to be edgy, distinctive and original, yet she
    comes off as calculated instead.  It
    doesn’t help that she describes herself as a “gangsta Nancy Sinatra”…when she
    is basically a trust fund baby whose career is being marketed and managed by
    her millionaire father.  However, these
    reservations will likely be less severe if the material is excellent.  I may sound harsh, but I am honestly hoping
    for the best, especially considering that I like the Lana Del Rey – EP,
    particularly “Born to Die.”

    Totally agree.

    Indie my ass!!! Interscope will focus a lot on this girl during this year, she is as manufactured as Rihanna or Kesha.

    Bitch has talent?’ yes, Is she something original, unique and trendy?? no.

    I agree that she is really not “indie,” but it baffles me how people can spend so much time shooting her down before they even hear her debut. Atleast she has something to say/show with her music and persona. Her videos are better than more than half of the videos released by other manufactured female pop artists. She obviously puts a lot of effort into her work and I’ll give her that until I hear the full album. As of now, I LOVE “Born to Die,” “Videogames” and “Off to the Races.” IMO they are some of the best/most unique pop songs released in awhile. I would definitely consider her to be more Pop, while I consider Florence alternative.

    I don’t deny that she’s talented – clearly she is, but I just have a hard time connecting with her. To me, it seems that her label is trying to mash-up Katy and Adele to make a beautiful combo – the looks and the ‘authencity.’ I just don’t know with her. She is so disconnected in her interviews and live performances. As I said, I will wait for her album to be released to get a better judgment of her.

    And how is shooting her down before someone has heard her debut any different than someone overhyping her before they’ve heard her debut?
