Paradise EP Track by Track Review
Ride - 9/10
To be honest, when this was first announced, my reaction was "Ride? That's a weird name for a single". When it was premiered, I was expecting for something like Dark Paradise + Summertime Sadness epicness, but hell broke. It was on my half play thru. When it reached to the climax where she sing "I'm tired..." part, I was blown away. On par with both Blue Jeans and Video Games, combined with drums and strings, you cannot imagine how this song will blow you away without hearing it.
American - 10/10
From first time hearing the snippet, I marked my word that this song must be the next single. It's catchy and nonetheless, patriotic. The production may be similar with Born To Die, nothing can stop this track from blowing you away with the catchy intro "Play house / Put my favorite record on". Love at first hear. Strings being stitched together with her soft yet high note of "oohhh" makes you wonder, can this lady get any better? Try listen to American while you're in a moving car while looking outside, it fits for me.
Cola - 10/10
"My pussy taste like pepsi cola" - Doesn't it sound catchy to you? Many of us were surprised by her with both positive and negative comment. It is simply the transition of a good Born-To-Die-girl to a more mature Paradise-girl. "Drug, suck it up like vanilla iceys" - Generally can be said as most fans favorite not to mention the outbreak of her voice after that - superbly amazing (the first time i hear her go this high pitch!). The strings in the intro really bring up the mysterious and paired together with her sedated/wasted voice makes the whole song element being projected out - which explains what this song is really all about - cunninglingus. Lana does not sing about her pussy only once, she sang it thrice which makes you ponder - does her pussy really taste like pepsi cola? (Btw, who's Ah he anyway?)
Body Electric - 8/10
The production on this track is fantastic. Why? Hop on your earphone and listen to the instrumental introduction. Not much explanation needed here, this song can be said as the one of the fandom few favorite track after Cola and Gods & Monsters.
Blue Velvet - 7/10
Classic yet, her voice fits perfectly. Even my mom loves it ! Nothing much to say though but it was quite short
Gods and Monsters - 6/10
Okay, I love this track but i have to be honest. Flashing back to the day she posted the 30 second preview of G&M, i was blown away by it. After hearing the full version of it, it sounded abit repetitive, especially the phrase "life imitates art". However, this is the first track which i love after hearing the preview she has posted. The production was precise and i love the smaller details being added into it such as the screaming on second verse. (The intro instrumental was interesting too !)
Yayo - 5/10
At first before the preview was released, I never liked the song. After hearing the preview, it makes me hated it more and more. Though, I force myself to hear to de Lizzy Grant Aka Lana Del Ray version over and over and i fell in love with that version. It is more "prepared". Yayo in Paradise was only being recorded in one shot. Which explains why it has a bit up side down sound wave, or sounded like one of her live version being recorded in studio. Though, I like the new production on this song. It sounded more lullaby-ish than using guitar.
Bel Air - 8/10
Very Paradise-ish and dreamy. Even her voice sounded dreamy. Calm and soothing even if you blasted it at night. This is my second before-sleep song after Yayo. I am not fond to this song but after several listens, i fell in love with it.
Burning Desire - 9/10
The intro's piano melody might have indicate that this song is a killer. I was wondering why isn't this song being included in physical release as well? This song is a grower the first time you listen to it ! Then you will hit the repeat button and listen to it over and over again.
Overall - 8/10
I can say that this is my second most anticipated album after Born This Way. Not to mention personal experience on caught up with a bunch of other fans counting down and desperately waiting for the album ! (plus the leak anticipation too LOL). I can say that this EP is just enough to satisfy most of us as 8 track (or 9 if we include the bonus track) is kinda short. Similar to The Fame Monster.
Anticipation for the sales - begin
