Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 18% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.6/100, a mean average of 73.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.2.

I bought this album when it first came out in 2014 but it wasn't until 7 years later in the summer of 2021, that I listened to it again and realised just how incredible an album it is. It's her strongest album in my opinion.

This is probably the strongest 80 there is, considering the album took a little downhill on the 2nd half. Really good tho.

Never thought Lana could be so emotional this way. "Cruel World", "Shades of Cool" and "West Coast" are really powerful tracks. Best album of her for sure.

Solid album, though it fades towards the end. She still has that Billie Holiday sound in a lot of her songs.

Best tracks: Shades of Cool, Brooklyn Baby, Cruel World

I get a bit sad listening to her music, because - well, in the first place because of her music of course, but also because I notice I will never feel the full extent of her music, because her music is mostly made for and from the perspective of women. I'll never experience putting up her music in my teens and just vibe hard to it. And at the same time I'm glad something like this can exist in our time: music that is women's own.

The hip hop production is lost or unrecognizable, but she doesn't need it. What's left is very good and one-of-a-kind baroque pop.

This is still one of my favorite records to listen to in the summertime. Slow, sexy, beautiful.

Lana's strongest record. Although Born to Die and Lust For Life are solid albums, her distinct 'noir-Americana' persona that others have mentioned gets muddled by the heavyhanded poppy electronic rhythm sections on those two. This one (despite the heavy use of reverb) sounds far more organic than the others.

Here, I think we get the pure melancholic extract of her sound. It's an album with an old soul, but also veers on the edge of being straight-up dream pop. While the tracklisting loses a bit of steam in the second half, it pulls itself together at the end with a strong finish. The end result is a strong album that almost sounds timeless.

Perhaps it is simply my addiction to this sound, but I love this record. Something about the way her voice effortlessly shifts timbres from line-to-line and shimmers alongside those guitars...Like the chorus to 'Shades of Cool'...Damn. Perhaps it is not the most -adventurous-, but man do I find this album irresistible.

Highlights: Shades of Cool, Brooklyn Baby, Black Beauty, Cruel World

Least Favorite: Money Power Glory

I tend to like all things Lana Del Rey, which may not seem entirely rational on my part, given that her brooding, duck-face persona isn't exactly congruent with most of my other musical tastes. In fact, I'd go so far as to predict that Ultraviolence gradually loses status on my 2014 chart as I discover, and re-discover, other albums that feel like they have more staying power. But for now it still holds a prominent spot, as I do think this album represents an interest in pop music that I hadn't experienced since the late 1980s, when the alternative rock, college rock, alternative country, and grunge scenes took over my musical imagination and refused to let go for decades.
