In my mind this is the quintessential Lana album.

I’m so shocked and horrified that Paradise has somehow become her most underrated by fans

completely feel this! each song has like a very lana-esque element.

 

Ride is the big, bombastic anthem about the strange combined feelings of loneliness and freedom.

American is the slightly more paired-back, intimate, sweet, devoted love song with the trip-hop elements present on BTD.

Cola is the sultry, Bond Girl-esque side of Lana that sings about older men and diamonds.

Body Electric is the sinister celebration of iconography and Americana.

Blue Velvet is the classic jazz cover, obviously significant to Lana's whole thing.

Gods & Monsters is the most rock-inspired song on the EP, which again, super relevant to Lana (the song would probs fit right in on UV) and that's without even considering the iconic lyrics and what they represent in the Lana pantheon.

Yayo is obviously a re-imagining of her elusive earlier work as Lizzy and all its talk of trailer parks and putting on a show for u daddy represents the 'sad party' vibe she aims for in her earlier work and unreleased stuff.

Bel Air is a lil bit of 'Hollywood Sadcore' Lana, super ethereal and gentle but also a little glamorous and cinematic.

 

there's rly something in every song of this EP to represent who Lana is, esp who she was at that point  :poordat:  it needs more love

This is the album I think of when I think of her most mature lyrics.

She completely transcended and transformed herself here.

We will never get another Paradise.
