In order for Lana to put out a memorable and impactful album she will have to work on it for more than than two years.

I knew this album would be a let down from the second she announced it.

Lana, what has happened to you? Take 10 years off and bring us something you've really put your heart and soul in.

This album is a one season money grab. Too bad that's all Lana seems to care about these days.

 

I commend you for having the courage to make such a clown out of yourself. We thank you sincerely for your service in providing the kikis and cackles!

Where? There might be minor pitch correction but I know how autotune works and there's no autotune in this song


That might be what I’m hearing. It’s right about the end of the first verse and it just throws me off each time I hear it? Idk it’s weird

Why? Lol

 

Because you, LanaBoards user Progidal Sun, have joined only to spread negativeness? Your otherwise well-written 6 posts consist of:

 

"See, this is where your bias as a fan comes in."

"Lana is not changing or evolving, and her writing lacks the depth and level of construction to stand on its own merit for this long."

"I think it's terribly unfortunate that Lana's last albums have received uniform praise."

"Sorry, it just pisses me off that some fans cannot stray from the dogma..."

"Lana, what has happened to you? Take 10 years off"

"This album is a one season money grab. Too bad that's all Lana seems to care about these days."

I never really loved BAR but this album version transcends me. I do agree with the fact it's a climax on the album (and I can't understand how it can be called a 'calm' song).

 

This album is a masterpiece and I hope it will leave its mark in music.

I literally don't see how any of that is negative. I'm not using vulgarities or ad hominems like the people who've responded to my points. I'm expressing an opinion.

If you'd like to give me a warning point for that go ahead, but I will take it up with whomever is the admin.

I won't give you a warning point; I was slightly kidding. But if you really only joined to spread negativeness and accusing Lana of being a money-grabber then I don't know dude...

They sound sort of off-key to me. The lyrics aren't great either with the "faster than my fastest car," "brighter than the brightest star," etc. The song would be in my top 3 otherwise.

Expose her. Every single post of his is constructed with inflammatory one-liners that are each designed to provoke negative reactions or to incite anger. It's a troll, plain and simple.

I love those lyrics a lot, and I think they come from the fact that the song is so desperate; it has this "I'll leave everything behind just for you" mood so the not-so-thoughtout lyrics make absolute sense and they shine for that.

This entire forum has been dragging LFL through the mud for the past couple of years, but if u dare to say you're disappointed by NFR during the honeymoon phase and your views why, people jump on itphoto-21141.png?_r=1565351105
I mean just a couple of weeks ago people were calling Lana a white money grabbing woman because they thought she was trying to capitalize on her Looking For America song, and staff didn't lecture them...? photo-21141.png?_r=1565351105

It's like they can't accept that some people simply don't like any aspects of the album, and as fans of Lana's music they're entitled to voice that if they so wish. Not sure why people who tear Win's appearance apart don't get publicly lectured by staff, but people who voice their opinions on an album do. photo-21141.png?_r=1565351105

Okay so it's a cool sunny Sunday so I'll go to one of my favorite places, lay by the river and listen to Norman during golden hour.

 

This is where I used to go everyday with my ex  :poordat:  Haven't been there since we broke up in May.
