  1. i think she'd really like French Exit by patrick dewitt
  2. y'all why are the AI lyrics actually kind of good
  3. The way I interpreted it was Lana being lost in thought while doing something mundane, like having come home from grocery shopping, absentmindedly running her fingers over the plastic grocery bags while she thinks about someone from her past. It seems like she's rerunning moments/experiences between them and is desperately trying to find some hidden meaning behind why they did the things they did. It sounds like she was neglected/ignored by this person and was vying for their attention, and is desperately trying to deduce whether their actions were silent messages to her. dunno if it's right or not, but that's my take. what do y'all think

    Grimes changed her twitter bio to Gods and Monsters lyrics, and she posted some of Honeymoon as her teaser for the New Gods vid. She’s a fellow Lana stan

    um holy shit i am blown away so far. not listening in order so i am currently sobbing to To Be Loved... holy fuck
  6. the older i get the more i realize lana was never even a sad girl. she barely has any 'sad songs'
  7. these are so good! are you a writer
  8. what one-off comment will she make that will have literally nothing to do with the album and never show up and haunt us forever??? im so excited to find out
  9. halsey look we all went through the 2015 hate phase bc she was clearly a d-grade copycat, but we're well past that and i just... cannot get into her her voice is like nails on a chalkboard, her lyrics are usually so cringy, on paper they are sometimes good but then her delivery ruins it, and her entire persona is just. I can't stand her. I know a lot of people really liked her last album, but I just can't get into it
  10. no, this alters the meaning of the song/line. her point is, Picasso, who is regarded as one of the greatest artists of all time, created much of his work out of the bleak darkness of his depression. she is essentially saying "if he hadn't felt that way, the art we enjoy so much wouldn't have existed, just like my songs wouldn't if I wasn't sad." It's a bit of a controversial take (the whole you need to be tortured to be an artist trope), but your line alters the meaning to "how would U like it if someone asks u not to be sad when ur sad -_-"
  11. 9 quality albums in 10 years, all of which are mostly very distinct sounds and show clear songwriting evolution but go off king, unstan her for including piano on the next album
  12. not at all... he is a perfect complement and i would love to hear more music from them together. this song wouldn't work (as well) without him. it would still sound incredible with Lana singing the verses too, but this is so much more powerful
  13. I wasn't completely won over by Blue Banisters upon first listen, but I've listened to it in its entirety several times now- on one long 400km stretch of a highway from 11pm to 3am, by the river under the setting sun walking on top of yellowing leaves, in hot baths until the water turned cool, in the morning as background music to watering my plants and taking care of my bird and just doing silly little mundane things... Somewhere along the way, something clicked. This album is something very special. I will admit it doesn't have the raw, lustful passion of UV, dripping in anger and sex and cheeky recklessness, AKA's drugged out, suicidal haze, or the carefully crafted ever-blue dramatic orchestration of Honeymoon (my favourite Lana albums), but it feels so subtly powerful. It feels like an exhausted and lived woman's recollection of her life. It feels like catharsis, like accepting the baggage and pain of the past and the grace and peace of shedding the anger of the cruelty against her and finally understanding why things are the way they are and one's place in the world. It's not a "happy" album- it's Lana accepting that some parts of her will always be broken, there will always be the stain of her mother's disdain, she will always yearn for horrible lovers and for an idealistic world she can never quite reach, and yet finding happiness despite all of that, in her little home, her little family, in the temporary experiences with every new lover, and her art. In living life as a decent person and just doing what makes her happy. I don't know- it just feels like her truest work (other than Violets), her first truly autobiographical piece of art from start to finish. I love Born to Die so much, but I think any longtime fan can agree it was mostly a dreamed up world as most of Lana's massive unreleased catalogue is, and every album after that started to shed more and more of the fantasy and instead reflect the intricacies of her true world, and BB is the pinnacle of that. This whole release cycle, along with the beautiful BB video (no storyline and yet so incredibly revealing and shockingly personal) and her withdrawing from the public as well as her Honeymoon posts (signing off as L/E made me shit myself)... again, we're witnessing something really special. It just feels so human, when Lana and her world for so long felt so otherworldly and alien. This is an incredibly honest and vulnerable moment in her discography, and I'm not sure we'll reach a place like this with her for another long while. Overall, certainly one of my favourite Lana albums. I'm very proud of her and feeling very sentimental.
  14. y'all im dumb, i had only been listening to the original music video version this entire time it sounds SO MUCH better on the album omg
