    both lana and marina are insufferable that's why their friendship ended

    We're talking about the girl who decided to release a music video for Ordinary Superstar, who scrapped Cherry from Sawayama and who wanted to cut 10-20-40 from Rina, like she's always had bad decisions

    I can't believe that after all this time, we have Yosemite on an official tracklist.
     
    Like, for some reason Yosemite has always felt even more obscure and elusive to me than Life Is Beautiful, and that's quite a feat. It just feels unreal that we're actually gonna get to hear it in less than two months. Hopefully.

    Yeah, but unfortunately no one normally understood the meaning, especially critics who slashed her for this album a lot. A random person listening to Electra Heart wouldn't even bother to visit the Tumblr etc. I don't even think her label realised what the concept was -- remember how her manager wanted her to get rid of Teen Idle?
    I agree with you and regardless of the popular opinions, this album indeed was her magnum opus. Not because of the sound, vibe or anything, but the amazing conceptualism. She's done so much research and was able to blend so many ideas using the commercial pop surface it's just amazing.

    I think what I miss the most, and I’ve thought about this a lot, is that in her other albums, especially Electra Heart, she was making societal criticisms but she did it in a way that really made you think. Like the average person would hear primadonna and think “oh catchy fun bitchy pop song” and it worked that way on a surface level, but for those that really looked into it, it obviously was satire. I miss the more hidden pretty on the surface but dark deep down kinda thing. I love her obviously! I just want less in your face and more “make me think in that special Marina way.” Idk I just thought Electra Heart was so much better than people let on. She really studied women from the fifties and sixties and nailed it with these over the top descriptions of them. Not to be that fan that can’t move on from EH, but I just miss it. Marina stuck out to me because of how you could easily bop to it but you could also really analyze it. I low key think it was more of an effective way of getting a point across. Electra Heart really made me think about materialism and roles and identity concepts without saying “This this and that” Idk. Rant over! But I miss that magic charm. I loved it. I loved the smoke and mirrors of it all. I loved analyzing it. I still study that character and rewatch the videos to see if I missed anything. I just loved everything about it. It was the perfect concept album. Everyone gives Lana credit for changing alternative sad pop but I swear Electra Heart was a huge part of that too. (And TFJ, and FROOT, too.) I heard in an interview when she said “they wanted me to be more commercial so I said okay, I’ll do it, but I’ll do it as a different person.” Amazing. 
     
     
    TLDR: I miss the Marina that made you think “there’s more to this than shes letting on” or “this isn’t what it seems.” The songs that could be played on the radio and no one but some people would listen and think “oh this is actually mocking people who really act like this I.e primadonna.”

    Lust For Life 
    Folklore and Evermore; or pretty much Taylor Swift in general aside from some Reputation tracks 
    Disco by Kylie Minogue 
    Chromatica

    I'll check that one out, thank you! <3
     
    Her successful albums are lowkey her worst albums ddd. Like, there's usually the big single(s) and just lots of filler. I think her "flops" like Impossible Princess or Body Language are much better and more interesting than the "big" Kylie albums. Also, some of her best songs somehow never even ended up on her albums, like Skirt, Cherry Bomb, Take Me With You, Waiting For The Sun, and the Sleepwalker and Kylie + Garibay EPs.

    yeah I hated TS too this time last year aside from like a few singles/tracks
     
    But I feel like she has literally a song for (almost) everyone... try listening Better than revenge, it’s a punk/rock/early paramore tease I think you’ll like

    I really really really hate Chromatica 
    I wanted to listen to it open-minded, I even initially included it among the records I was the most excited for in 2020 BUUUUUUUT every single song has something missing imo

    I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous but Taylor Swifts lyrics are so embarrassing. The production can be literal magic and everything I want in a song and then she says something like "then you hold my hand and crush my plans" and I can't deal
     
    Willow was so beautiful then mama said "but I come back stronger than a 90s trend" and I never streamed again

    So after the anniversary edition of L.A.M.B., Urban Outfitters is coming through with a The Sweet Escape release! 15 years after the album's release, it's finally available on vinyl for the first time ever! https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shop/gwen-stefani-the-sweet-escape-limited-lp

    Fever was written at the same time as Pretty Please (at least the inferior Dua solo version) together with Julia Michaels.
     
    Dua recorded Swan Song and I'm Free (YSL song) between DL1 and FN and they were no indication on FN whatsoever, i don't see why she would now start teasing DL3 on the moonlight edition which consists of album outtakes of FN and features. 
  25. SlowGinFizzzz liked a post in a topic by Kurt in Dua Lipa   
    Why do you think so? Those songs aren’t new - they were made at the same time as the rest of FN. Only the features were new!
