Lana Del Rey is a modern day love tragedy searching for light at the end of a dark, turbulent tunnel. In her fourth major studio album, she departs from her previous trilogy of tender, melancholic heartbreak, and delivers a 72 minute journey towards enlightenment that calls for love, peace, and justice. If it sounds a little flower power-y, that’s because it is. Lust remains inherently true to Lana’s smooth, sunlit SoCal sound that blends lush instrumentals with super-imposed celebrity symbolism (and a little bit of hip-hop styling, thanks to longtime collaborator ASAP Rocky), to make her most relevant statement to the world outside of herself to date. —Rebecca Speiser
