Lust for Life features the same hallowing voice that Lana del Rey has always had, but the tone of this album is lighter and less depressing. While there are still some sad ballads, there's something about the instrumentals on this album that aren't as dramatic as her usual work, but instead more accepting of life as is: a different definition for what the phrase "lust for life" means.

As much a sound collage experience as a truly "capital C" classical album, Richter's "post-Classical" style came into its own on his second album. Typewriter sounds and understated readings by Tilda Swinton nestle intimately alongside small string ensembles and swirling winds, tailor-made for cold mornings before the heat comes on.
