It has the same producer as Born To Die and that album is my fav right now!
"The Saddest, Baddest Diva in Rock" - Rolling Stone
"She’s a pop music original full-stop, and there are not nearly enough of those around." - Pitchfork
"Ultraviolence is the masked bacchanalia that finally unleashes the full potential lurking beneath the hype." - EW
"Ultraviolence rages to fill the vacancies behind the icons, to imagine the sorrow and desperation and flat-out anger of the women still cast in men’s spotlights." - COS
Some Nights is definitely the best moment on album.Its anthemic and it has what We Are Young lacks:strong verses.
It Gets Better is God-awful.It sound like it came from those awful teeny-bopper movie soundtracks. Why Am I the One is very good with great melody and cute chorus.
All Alright is contagious while All Alright & One Foot are both average.
Album ends with pretty much amazing Stars.
In my opinion some of their songs are predictable(isn't necessary a bad thing) but besides that album is very enjoyable.Oh yes make sure to skip 'It Gets Better'.
Just started listening this album. Some Nights (both the song & intro) are amazing. WAY is still pretty good. Carry On is ok I guess. I don't really understand the hate for It Gets Better. It's really catchy imo.
