El Hunt of ''DIY'' praised the album for being "a record that is prepared to be truly vulnerable, and is all the more impactf​ul for it". Hunt labeled the album as her most honest album yet, as well as her best to date. Jon Paroles of ''The New York Time'' interpreted the album's lyrical meaning by stating: "She’s [Del Rey] thinking not only about the troubled romances that fill most of her songs, but also about a next generation". ''Billboard'' named the record their "album of the week", calling it her her most self-assured album yet, and writing that "in a 2017 pop game riddled with thirst, trend-hops and burn-outs, Lana Del Rey has earned a remarkable, singular consistency".<ref>[http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7873902/lana-del-rey-lust-for-life-album-of-the-week Payne, Chris (July 21, 2017).
