Imagine she wears neon to the Grammys.

 

She would do that.

The bells in HTD kinda work in that instrumental break. While she's singing? Absolutely not.

 

As you said: they detract from her vocals and imo they detract from the instrumental too because there are all these other effects/instruments in it but the bells drown them all out.

The one time they honored her with a nomination (for paradise) she decided not to attend so for that reason I don't think they will bother with her from now on unless she promises behind the scenes to actually go this time around.


Nah pretty sure Eminem mentioned plenty of times that he stayed home with his daughters rather than go to the Grammy’s when he’s nominated and hes always up for RAOTY when he drops. That would just be petty

Doin time and cinnamon girl are def ties but I’d have put CG as the top #1 lol. Also 1-12 are all 10/10 for me so the ranking is sort of pointless, bartender is like 9/10 and idk about love song, I really can’t get into it but she’s cute

 

Love that you're not afraid to admit the truth that Doin' Time is one of the best songs on the album. Her version of it is just perfect. Most of my rankings would be fairly similar

I think she'll be nominated but I don't expect her to win. It's really political and I just don't know if the good sis can get past Taylor, Ari, or even Billie ...

Billie will win just so they can name her the youngest person to win a grammy in 10 years or something

 

Ari and Taylor could also win but mainly because they're more popular than Lana so they already got a better chance

 

And yeah I'm probably biased but I do believe Lana should get a grammy because NFR is actually a solid gold album

I know but the difference is, to an extent the grammy's is a popularity contest because they do need the ratings. So an act with more chart success like eminem has more leverage in that department.

Here's hoping for an AOTY now though :smile:

I don't think being political is an issue. "this is america" was one of the big winners last year and that is as political as you can get.

Political as in ... it's a popularity contest. Popularity politics, if you will.

If not AOTY, then at least Pop vocal album, that's a good category for her too. Ugh, I just know she'll get unfairly snubbed once again

NFR reminds me a lot of Golden Hour in the sense that it’s a perfect hybrid between styles. Dreampop country for GH and pop, folk, trap, piano whatever for NFR. The sound is really cohesive in itself and there are not really songs you can take from the album without missing something essential. With Lover you can just take out any song. Even Doin’ Time fits nicely in the first half.

Considering NFR is one of the best reviewed albums of this year I'll be really surprised if Lana isn't nominated for AOTY. I have no idea if she'll win though...
