Interesting? I mean all her other albums sounded great on any platform I was listening to them, whether it was in my car, with headphones or on speaker? NFR is a good record, but that production ain't all it. Also I wonder with what kind of cheap microphone it was all recorded with tbh.



I agree. 'Cinnamon' especially sounds thick and muffled, as if it were recorded with a pillow over the mic, unlike, say, TG. I like the arrangement on 'Cinnamon,' but the engineering is awful. Compare it to ‘Hope.’

For anyone in Canada who hasn't received their order yet, Lana's store replied to me and said the delivery date has been pushed back to 9/13 so it should be sent soon.

I love how The Greatest is the greatest "shut down anything" song. Bar closing? Greatest. End of a relationship? Greatest. World ending? The Greatest

Guys it's been 13 days and I'm still so in love with this album, I can't believe that I like every song, I wasn't expecting to at all and I'm just so happy and full of candy  :smile3:  :smile3:  :smile3:

 

 

My favorites are (no order) MAC, NFR, VB, Cinnamon Girl, Bartender, The Greatest

 

Also, does the beginning of Love Song remind anyone else of the instrumental beginning of the Blue Jeans video? The chords at the beginning of LS just recall the grandiosity of the Blue Jeans chorus for me for whatever reason.

I think Love Song is beautiful, but I do cringe every time she says "spill my clothes on the floor of your new car."

its just jacks style of mixing. He likes to leave everything very unmixed and raw sounding

 

Ultraviolence is raw sounding, but it didn't sound unpolished? A lot of tracks on NFR have either this demo-like quality or just sound like they were recored with a cheap microphone (The title track, Cinnamon, HTD, California, The greatest) I mean I love most of these songs, but the production is extremely lackluster to me.

I feel this!! Some songs border on painful to listen to on higher volumes, as if in the track itself all instruments / layers are being played at exactly the same volume so the entire track comes out very loud and almost scratchy sounding. Idk if that makes sense.

 

still love the album tho  :flutter:

Makes a lot of sense to me! I really feel that, I tend to listen to music pretty loudly especially in my car, but a lot of songs on NFR end up sounding pretty scratchy unfortunately. The quality of the recording process is questionable  :rip:


NFR title track features her clearest vocals in years girl what you on about 

 

That's debatable, when Lana goes in for the high note before the second verse it sounds a little iffy to me, also I don't like how her vocals sound super muffled towards the end. But my biggest criticism about the title track, even though I think it's one of the best on the record, the piano sounds super cheaply recorded.

Hi. I have listened to this album multiple times every day since it leaked. I cannot stop. It means so much to me. I would like to give it a rest. How do I do that? Can somebody explain what is happening here? Jesus, Lana.
