I think this is an album that I would consider pretty good if it had sneaked up on me, but all the pre-release hype has made it difficult to judge objectively.

It seems good but not great. I don't like anything else on the album as much as Video Games.

I bought it yesterday but haven't had time to listen to it yet (or even throw it on my iPod).

It's a shame you didn't have the CD in your car the day it got stolen. Nobody would have gone near it.

Most of the review sites that I trust the most have been unimpressed with it to say the least, so I do not feel a rush to hear it, although I probably will at some point.

I was intrigued by Entertainment Weekly's review, which said there were some tracks that were worth a solid A, but so much that was so inferior that it dragged it down to a C.

I like it. All the missteps (and there are plenty) are absolved by that hook in "Radio."

Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice, bitches. HaHA! College basketball!

It's on Spotify. I've given it three full listens over the last three days. It's hot. My favorite stretch right now is probably Dark Paradise -> Radio -> Carmen, there in the third quarter of the album.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit burnt out on the title track, Blue Jeans, and Vidja Games, but the fact that those songs (especially the latter) have been around for a while and everybody's familiar with them shouldn't take away from the fact that they're still great songs contributing to a strong album.

I also just realized that I haven't been listening to it with the three bonus tracks (Without You, Lolita, Lucky Ones) so I think I'll hit those up right now.

"Lolita" is complete garbage, but I like "Without You."

Just got the green light to write about this album for the university paper.

My editor will never take giving a shit for granted ever again.

This is how I feel about the album as well. I'll probably give it a listen one of these days on spotify. I'm a huge fan of Video Games so it can't be that bad.

Well, it's better than I was expecting based on the reviews, but it's nothing earth-shattering. Not sorry I bought it.

If that is a standout lyric, I'm damn glad I've stayed away from this album.

No one's listening to Lana Del Rey for Dylan caliber lyrics, dude.
