You've probably already made your minds up on whether you like this or not... here's our tuppence worth for good measure

If you've listened to mainstream radio at all in 2012 then you will have heard Blue Jeans in heavy rotation- it's slick melancholy presumably ticking all the boxes at a whole host of stations. Personally I still struggle with the millionaires daughter singing 'we don't need no money'- living off a Lidl diet for a couple of weeks would probably change her mind on that count - but the songwriting is undeniably tight, and the mix of grand 50s death pop with spooked out hip hop samples remains a great idea with healthy milage in it. It seems the wheels haven't quite come off the Del Rey bus just yet...
