u know, MAC really gives me the rural, country-folk sound echoed in AKA, mixed with the guitars and heavy rock sound of UV, dashed with the dreamy, deep beats of HM-- altogether making a very early 70s rock/west coast alternative vibe (obvious due to the RHCP influences). i'm curious if she'll delve into more 90s sounds on the record, maybe something truly grunge-y or even a bit of ska/Sublime 

 

 

idk but im glad we have a direction to look forward to!!! :oprah:

God i hope this era is full of natural imagery and greens, it would bring out her eyes so much

i wonder what the flower of the era will be too?

 

I don't know why but I'm seeing something evergreen (as a metaphor) so maybe something like ivy? (obviously not a flower) I really am excited to see the visual direction she takes with this record.

i like the idea of abandoning something like flowers (temporary, beautiful but not forever, and often cut from their homes) to something more sturdy and permanent- like lush leaves. god!!!! a bitch can dream

When Lana drops a lead i'm ALWAYS afraid that I won't like the album, this happens since Honeymoon

:icant:

I really hope she don't go the rural country-folk road from AKA. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Yayo and Kill Kill, but this doesn't match anything we heard from BTD to LFL

I really hope one day we get a documentary or book from Lana herself to talk about her career, it's interesting to me that she spent so many years constructing the persona of Lana Del Rey (lyrically, sonically and visually) to gradually take it apart record-by-record and eventually return to her natural self. I'd love to know the thought processes and reasoning behind it all...

about Sylvia... I've been thinking lately about that song, that she mentioned it to fans at one or two of her shows... but has anyone recorded her mentioning Sylvia?

I am so excited for this era, MAC is spectacular. Probably cant surpass Ultraviolence, but I think it will come really, really close.

I think the only lead single I haven't immediately connected to or enjoyed was Love, even when it leaked I was hoping it wasn't the lead and just an album track haha. And I wouldn't worry about Lana going country (just yet), this is very much in the same vein as her other works, almost a hybrid of them all (unreleased included).

I don't think there is any proof of Sylvia existing, just word of mouth at this point. However I believe multiple fans who attended the show that night mentioned it and that's why it became credible.

after listening to MAC, I have high hopes for this album. it seems more sincere and stripped back compared to LfL and I can't wait for the next single  :flutter:

This is what LFL should have been

LFL was way too ambitious. The acoustic part of it kinda got tossed away and this is now a part of MAC.

As much as people hate LFL, it was a necessary album. I loved HM. Still is my fave from her, but to transition directly from HM into the sounds of MAC (even if I love them), it would have been a «too easy transition» between the two. We needed LFL's big production, all in major tones, in order to return to calmer seas (lol).

im kinda shocked at the amount of fans that seem to be worried about her losing the LDR persona, i'm personally here for it

in fact, i think this may have been her plan all along

believe me i'd be so scalped if she ever released anything under lizzy/elizabeth grant

 

i feel like she's grown up a lot since 2012, and now she sees music as less of a time to play dress-up and pretend life is a movie, and realizes it to be her truest outlet for explicit self-expression and emotional honesty

Part of me is glad that this doesn't sound like anything from BTD to LFL, cos that shows artistic growth, however I think the Lana Del Rey persona has been getting slowly removed from every project since Ultraviolence and it is inevitable at this point... I understand your concern but just embrace it, she's finally comfortable enough to be herself and explore new things and no longer feels like she has to hide behind a persona or character. The sentiments of the songs are very much the same, just a new perspective.

This!!!! I'm here for her shedding the persona. It's gradually happening. She is def in a diff place than when she first started. You really just summarized it so nicely.
