I don't mind Hope is a Dangerous Thing. It probably won't be my favorite song off NFR, but the writing is gorgeously brilliant

I really think it’s overall one of her worst songs to date, not into the preachy rich white lady thing.

 

Sis, what do you think Coachella was? :wtfney:

 

I don't like it when she tries to do political/social issues shit, either (yeah yeah, she's not trying to be a politician ... whatever) but LFA has many good qualities that Coachella lacks. Such as ... lyrics that make sense.

 

I didn't understand the "no bombs in the sky" part in LFA; I was srsly like, "WTF is this crazy bitch talking about?" and needed actual Americans to explain to me that it was a reference from the national anthem, but it's FAR better than Coachella in pretty much every single way.

 

Sincerely,

 

Children's children's children's children.

I'm not listening to snippets of the NFR until it comes out so I can be a bit surprised.

 

she already posted 90% of the snippets on instagram lol

 

i'm very excited about Bartender though

This is definitely unpopular, but the mic bumps in LFA are plain sloppy af and Jack-the-fucking-so-called-production-genius should be ashamed.

 

That song could have 76 mic bumps and still be better than Coachella, though.

YES they are so unprofessional - how can anyone say otherwise when people are paying for the song? I mean it was obviously made in one take which gives it a more authentic feel (similar to Emilie Haynie's style) but it's sorta awkward and random too.

I don't find BTD: Paradise to be overproduced like everyone says it is. 

 

The grandiose production is what makes it so great tbh

 

If everything fits well together production-wise then I don't see what the problem is

I like most of Jacks production so far BUT I hate how its mixed and the quality of the vocals, it just feels kinda sloppy

when it comes to the unreleased tracks that we have, I think the worst 2013 outtake is still better than the best unreleased from 2005 - 2012. I love some like On Our Way or Never Let Me Go but they don't compare to Fine China, Say Yes To Heaven, Your Girl, Wild One, Cherry Blossom or Angels Forever. I know that if we had tracks like Queen of Hearts of Don't Stop which don't sound that good to me that would no longer be true but the quality of her unreleased stuff really improved a lot between 2012 and 2013

I think 2013 is probably her best year in the studio. There's so many iconic songs.

Yeah Coachella was stupid but so is looking for america. I think Coachella is a bad song but lfa is worse. Lana’s cold takes are boring and make bad songs. Also looking for america makes me psychically cringe, which Coachella doesn’t do so I have to give credit where credit is due. All of Lana’s attempts to be woke are embarrassing.

the piano version of How to Disappear is boring and a snooze-fest, but the studio version on NFR sounds genuinely good and i’m excited for it.

some UV songs are very overrated: ultraviolence, shades of cool and money power glory

Agree 100%, ultraviolence has to be my least favorite songs on the album same with mpg. I feel like all the singles from ultra are lackluster, the stand out tracks to me are the bonus tracks. I think that’s why it’s been my least favorite album of Lana’s.

The lack of structure in most NFR tracks is literally killing me, I don't care if it's "innovative" it's literally infuriating.
