  1. Awesome! I'm happy so many people are at least curious about her. Some of the "casual" searchers had to have been turned into fans, right?
  2. I love Mylene Farmer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puQJbvnbycE I actually just bought a ticket to her November '13 show in Brussels, even though I have no idea if I can make the trip yet. I do have a friend there who gave me an open invitation to come visit any time next year, but we haven't worked out the details. It's not a huge deal if I end up not being able to go, but at least it's a possibility!
  3. I like the live version better too, especially for her vocals on it. I don't think the album version is bad, though, at least the melody wasn't messed with.
  4. Over the last week or so... Lana Del Rey - Born To Die (never had a physical copy of just this one, haha) Rihanna - Unapologetic The Weeknd - Trilogy Alicia Keys - Girl On Fire t.A.T.u. - 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane: 10th Anniversary Edition Peter Gabriel - So
  5. Had to vote for "Burning Desire," because it sounds like what it is --- a bonus track. It's the only one not totally integral to the album's story.
  6. "Bel Air" for sure. It's drippy and sad and haunting, just like "Carmen."
  7. Apart from "Bel Air" and maybe "Body Electric," nothing on "Paradise" is as haunting as the best moments on "Born To Die." I'm not necessarily disappointed in the EP, since I like almost everything on it. It just doesn't get under my skin as much. "Born To Die" is one of those rare albums that can still give me chills long after the point I should have overplayed the thrill out of it. I'm not sure if "Paradise" will hold up the same way yet.
  8. I don't have my box set either. Starting to get worried/impatient. :imbeingsarcasticbitch2: EDIT: Arrived today, 11/29!
  9.

  10. I think it's "motel speed sprees." Like binging on drugs in a seedy motel.
  11. Is this the US edition you're talking about?

    "Roc Me Out" is a nod to her record label, Roc Nation. Rita Ora, her labelmate, has the similarly titled "Roc the Life." The others are just slang/Twitterspeak.
  13. I like them both, but I think Lana deserves the award more. She's so underappreciated by the critics, but the more positive recognition she gets the more respect she'll have in the industry. This helps her longevity.

    I actually really liked the snippets. As pure (guilty?) pleasure pop, she's never disappointed me, and this new album looks like it's loaded with exactly the kind of thing I like from her --- grimy beats.

    Kerosene + Affection + Pale Flesh + Sad Eyes + Violent Youth = That said, I seriously love the whole album. I'm not sure if it tops (II) yet for me, but it's definitely right up there with it.

    Lady Gaga

    Does anyone know what she says about Sartre in "Stache?" The line is too mumbled/buried in the mix for me to make out.

    Crystal Castles

    YES, YES, YES. Alice eloquently explains something I've felt for a long time but didn't know how to say. I want "Purification is Genocide" on a t-shirt.

    Emilie Autumn

    As much as I find the whole "Plague Rats" thing endearing, I haven't been able to connect with any of her albums the whole way through. This track is nice, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rlDFsExijo

    Sounds fantastic! I especially like the clip of "Kerosene."

    I finally got to see my ultimate fave live for the first time last night. We had 2nd Row seats along the left side of the "outer triangle," which was where she seemed to do the very best parts of the show! Well worth the wait, especially since she did my two "wishlist" songs that I've waited for YEARS to see ("Express Yourself" and "Open Your Heart"). The new songs really came to life, too, especially a stripped-down version of "Love Spent" and (somewhat surprisingly) GMAYL.

    Charli XCX

    Nice to finally get to hear that "Dinosaur Sex" song she talked about in her Pitchfork interview!
  22. Nice detective work! Very interesting about the Nevada Reservation --- I bet that's where all the "Nevada" references come from, like the alternate title for LDRAKALG. That means we have one more part of her history that we know is grounded in fact.

    And I'm a "Celestica," "Baptism," "Untrust Us," "Reckless," and "Intimate" kind of chick. You know, the ones with lots of layered synths.
