I will never comprehend the delusion of being upset that a song has added instruments.... this album would’ve been way too slow & dragged towards the end if HTD had been another slow piano ballad. It’s got a beautiful build musically & some cute effects; to top it off some of her best lyrics / vocals that actually sound GOOD and not shouty or awkwardly layered... (looking at u miss California) idk :rip:

I will defend the underdog til the end

I know right? Finally, for once! I actually listened to just the title track multiple times today and it honestly has such unexpected replay value.

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.

 

Honestly worse has been said in here

After listening to Norman Forking Rockwell these days I went through BTD to refresh my rankings and ugh... the songs... are just all masterpieces... it kinda has the same issue as LFL does, maybe the songs don't all come together as an album to me but woah the lyrics, the songs, the themes, she was so ahead of everything tbh

 

ranking all the Lana albums is just an impossible chore tbh but I'll try:  NFR = HM = BTD = UV > LFL

 

Lana is really the best artist of our generation, huh, she did that

the title track is one of the best 

 

the opening strings foreshadowing the chorus melody, the loose piano, the witty lyrics (ICONIC), the brass, the high notes like the heavenly BLUUUEEE at the end 

 

perfect opener

Doin' Time is surely a great cover. It's catchy, its length is just right for radio and the video is visually and creatively much better than any of the videos for Honeymoon or LFL.

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 have no idea where you're getting this shit from, your ass would be the obvious answer

I'm getting that from the fact she releases an album every to years. That's not being a musician as much as it is fulfilling a contract.

as much as I LOVE the title track and think it deserves to be heard, its most likely due to its placement in the tracklist, most people will start the album with it and might not finish it, you know


The guy who said Lana will never be beautiful cause her ears are too low and talked a lot of shit about her for not wearing enough makeup and not having her hair in a pretty style to her surgeon’s birthday party even though she looked completely fine is calling the “You’re just a man” line sexist.. Yeah seems about right

also, he went on a wild rant months ago about how Lana using the expression "crack another beer" was unappealing b/c it sounded like a trashy way of putting it. DRAG HA
