Is it a reach to speculate that TNBAR would have been a single from L4L, considering that the mv for White Mustang was most likely for the song?

no, not at all. I still really wish that the original BAR was on this record, it would've been a standout whereas the version we got on NFR only serves to make the second half of the album bloated

the way she just lazily added the "we played" when she songs about playing the Eagles down at Malibu makes my ears bleed, it sounds so bad

like she could have sang it in the same vocal take as the rest of that verse but

she should’ve made this album in 2 parts like Marina L+F. Everyone would’ve gotten what they wanted and it definitely would’ve sounded more cohesive

Y’all gonna cancel me but I think Coachella is good. I wouldn’t call it gorgeous per se, but I don’t think it’s bad by any means

This guy does good reviews. He only has NFR to go so ill be interested if he really thinks it's her best. 

 

This is a pretty fair LFL review. I would disagree when he says there are some tracks on this that are up there with her best, but when he says if you made your own album out of this tracklist, it would be perfect, i agree with that. LFL could have made a really sweet and fun album, plus a 'political-focused' EP and id have been happy.

It's perfect weather where I live right now, and I just went outside in my backyard and listened to this album front to back. although it is my least favorite of hers, i think i don't give it enough credit. Groupie Love was a song that really came out of nowhere on that listen and now I feel like it's one of my favorites?? Also I've concluded that the only songs on this album that i genuinely do not enjoy are the title track (fuck you max martin) and white mustang. the last minute of coachella SORT OF saves it

It doesn't deserve all the backlash it receives here. I said it before, and many times, but although I loooovveee HM, we needed something a bit more diverse for her next project. Many here listen to the demos of the songs and wish LFL sounded like that: I'm sorry, but it would have been a «toned down» HM, which would have bored the rest of the world.
