Album Review Lana Del Rey - Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd3-5 Stars
A record that plays out like a Tennessee Williams drama, with all its restless, unsure inbetweens left in.
Nestled within ‘Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd’ is some of Lana Del Rey’s best work - and not just because it somewhat bafflingly ends with a chunk of a lifetime-peak track (‘Venice Bitch’) that she already released five years ago. Amongst the sprawling, 16-song tracklist - an album as winding as its title that clocks in at 77 minutes but often feels like more - are concise moments you might more traditionally associate with the production touch of omnipresent pop magic-sprinkler Jack Antonoff (who sits behind the desk on much of LDR’s ninth, and duets on ‘Margaret’ - a late album highlight that nods to Springsteen, Sufjan and even Dolly Parton throughout its run time). But that’s clearly not the point of ‘…Ocean Blvd’.
