I can't listen to most of the songs on Honeymoon because they make me so damn fucking sad. Not because they're bad, quite the contrary. But I don't know how to explain it. UV gives me this dark edgy feel, where as Honeymoon gives me very sad melodic vibes. It's such a beautiful album, but it always tears at my heart strings. I know Lana said UV was unlistenable because to her, that was her saddest album, but to me honestly Honeymoon takes the cake on unlistenable sadness. There's some light moments like Terrences Loves You, Freak, Swan Song, Music To Watch Boys To, but songs like God Knows I Tried, Honeymoon, The Blackest Day, Salvatore, Religion, etc. Idfk man, those are some beautiful tragedies. Truly one of her most interesting, and most depressing albums. 10/10 Lana. I'm listening to The Blackest Day again and damn, I swear I could mistake my house for an onion cutting facility right now.

It's her saddest album by FAR - totally agree with you. Ultraviolence is too melodramatic to be sad for me. Honeymoon has the quiet and ethereal sadness found in the greatest poetry.

That's exactly it! Like UV is sad sure, but Honeymoon has this soft, almost holy quietness, like something you'd listen to very early morning or late at night. Don't get me wrong I love UV, but the stillness Honeymoon possesses just frames her voice and the emotions she's trying to convey perfectly! UV and HIADT could have a baby, and I'd still say Honeymoon is her most emotional album yet.

HM is lush, majestic, luminous, grand, orchestral, etharal. She is at her most « Old Hollywood » on that album, which I love. She is more in control with that one after the rawness and fiery passion of UV. The lyrics are pretty much flawless, even when they seem a bit corny. Her voice is like a summer breeze. And there are so many heartfelt moments on that album. It’s a tour de force. To me, it is still her best. UV was stunning, but listening it from cover to cover is kinda a downer. I don’t get that down feeling after HM.

From NME interview (2015) on GKIT:

 

 

“On Monday they destroyed me but by Friday I’m revived… I’ve got nothing much to live for ever since I found my fame,” you sing on ‘God Knows I Tried’. Is life in the spotlight as crushing for you as it sounds? What are the most extreme situations you’ve found yourself in because of fame?

 
“There were unusual situations I found myself in that I didn’t know how to extract myself from, situations that needed more attention than me or the people around me knew how to handle at first. I think that song was a reminder to myself that if you don’t want the problems that come with being in the spotlight the best thing you can do is try and take yourself out of the spotlight when you’re not on stage. I think my two big goals with work are to make great records, and stay out of the press for the wrong reasons, so that song lyrically and melodically is especially poignant for me when I listen back to it. My family was traditional, and some of my extended family used to say a gentleman is only in the paper two times in his life: when he’s born and when he dies. Obviously, it’s a little too late for me when it comes to that sentiment.”

I still can't believe she never published Honeymoon video. It's a masterpiece. :(
