Time Out says
She may still seem like an Urban Outfitters advertisement come to life, but Lana Del Rey has weathered the critics, the backlash and the disastrous late-night performances, finding her (considerable) audience. While some still decry the pop singer as a "fake" label creation, there's no question that even if Del Rey is just a character, she's a pretty damn compelling one. Yes, her bloated new record Lust for Life contains a groan-worthy track comparing Coachella to Woodstock, but even her missteps feel as calculated as the cinematic melodrama she so easily draws upon. She may not be as flashy as Gaga, or as woke as Beyoncé but Del Rey has a romantic vision of the world that's intoxicating, even if you don't entirely believe in it.
