the main reason i like nfr better than lfl is that she literally advocated for gay conversion therapy with Change meanwhile on nfr she literally has a song about being a lesbian

and how many things have changed since then... she got the best critics reviews in her career, released the album (finally) and she's talking about Ariana all the time.

ANDDD who would have thought that we'll get collab with Ariana and Miley?  :oprah2:

i think nfr is starting to age for me   :ohno:  it doesnt feel THAT great anymore, but i guess its natural to not be so hyped about an album after the release.


You have issues, it’s literally a fucking week old. Wtf.

It's normal to want a break from a certain album if you listen to it for a week straight. That doesn't make the album any less great.

I'm usually against ranking things and always trying to pick apart a body of work because even though you may love one song in particular it doesn't really mean that any other song is "less good". The Next Best American Record is the only song that I think is weak other than that the album is so solid to me.

 

Venice Bitch is probably my favourite even though it isn't the best song if you know what I mean. The mood Venice bitch creates >>

Didn't say they had the same sound, but that doesn't prevent the use of sleigh bells from being (as I said) a nod to the Beach Boys who used them in multiple songs including Dance, Dance, Dance, I Can Hear Music and God Only Knows. 

 

Huh?

 

It's not a nod if your song sounds nothing like the song you're attempting to emulate the sound of. 

 

That's a reach. Not a nod.

She actually has a really good shot at an AOTY nomination if her team remembered to submit.

It’s a weak year and she’s the most acclaimed of the popular albums by a good margin.

I’ve never cared about Grammys for Lana but now that she said in that interview that she cares, I care a lot. Like, she better fucking get it

I picked up the Target exclusive CD (it's on sale!) for the poster and throw me round like a hot potato, that photo is GORGEOUS.  :defeated:  I wish they had chosen that for the cover. Going from standing in front of cars to sitting on the ocean...the power that that has

 

also I hate that the poster has all those fugly fold creases in it but whatever

My official NFR ranking. It's so accurate wow. Also, the lines between Love song, Bartender and Cinnamon girl are sooo thin, really hard to choose when those ones where up against each other, but it ended up right. 

 

1 Venice Bitch
2 California
3 Norman Fucking Rockwell
4 Mariners Apartment Complex
5 The Greatest
6 Love Song
7 Bartender
8 Cinnamon Girl
9 The Next Best American Record
10 Fuck It I Love You
11 Doin' Time
12 Happiness Is A Butterfly
13 Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have - But I Have It
14 How To Disappear
