Lana Del Rey - Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have - But I Have It
Published: 9:13 am, January 09, 2019

By this point, Lana Del Rey knows exactly what buttons to press to best showcase her considerable talents, and 'Hope Is A Dangerous Thing...' deftly taps them all.

Instrumentally understated, played against a single piano line, it's LDR's iconic vocal that drips like liquid velvet, punctuated by tossed away curse words and bitter sweet constructs. Climaxing in breathy near-falsetto, it never develops the orchestral swell that might be expected, instead remaining defiantly singular.

It's to its credit. While Lana's biggest moments might be the fully formed radio friendly singles, 'Hope Is A Dangerous Thing...' is as effective as any of them. A one on one confessional with an artist at the height of her powers, that self-awareness of her own talents envelops like a warm embrace. Intimate brilliance.
