Lana Del Rey’s sophomore album Ultraviolence is out today, and it’s a masterful exercise in world-building by a truly unique creative force. This is grand, sweeping, complicated, polarizing music — music that seduces you even as it repels you, that demands you give yourself over to its fictions completely or not at all. It’s a big step forward for Del Rey, and it’s out there in the world now for all to hear. Read our Premature Evaluation while you stream the album below via Spotify.
