I like Ultraviolence and NFR about the same. Both start out incredibly strong and grow a little tiresome in the second half. Some of my younger colleagues have informed me that Born To Die will always be her masterpiece, so: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not liking I'm Wide Awake is insane to me. I have been shocked to learn that "disliking I'm Wide Awake" is a popular position. To me it's several marathons better than anything else he's ever done. It's one of my favorite albums of all time. Not that I dislike his other work, I'm Wide Awake just hits me deeper than the rest.
