Lana Del Rey's highly anticipated album "Ultraviolence" will probably disappoint some fans by not, like its predecessor "Born to Die”, containing obvious radio hits such as "Blue Jeans," "Video Games", "Born to Die" or "Cola".

On the other hand songs like "Cruel World", "Brooklyn Baby", "Old Money" and the title song "Ultraviolence" are likely, after a few listening, to become favorites among Del Rey's fans. Other less catchy songs will probably require more time, while some again, for me at least, probably never be a part of the favorites.

All in all, a this is a very evocative album, characterized by great sound, Del Rey's personal attitude and her often disillusioned lyrics.
