    I agree that it has poor mixing and makes it less enjoyable. Mixing is an extremely important stage and should not be overlooked.

    If this album had better mixing I probs would like it way better. Idk any musical terms or w/e but it sounds thick it sounds muffled like theres this thick nasty gray thick syrup-y consistency in my ears while im listening to it idk if this makes any sense but it does it’s just not pleasant to the ears. It makes it less replayable for me.

    It’s an all right song in my opinion, nothing too special for me. 
     
    I usually like her high register but it sounds to me as if she has changed the way she uses it for a few years and while it still sounds good to me, it also sounds a bit generic.
     
    Then again, even « Beautiful » grew on me, so I might start really liking this soon who knows.

    See that's why Lana is the most random and unpredictable artist out there. I mean a new original song for Euphoria?  I just hope it has some Baddie Del Rey energy. What if it's LA Who Am I

    WOW very artfully said.
     
    i never thought of it this way but you're toooootally right. i was so sick of lana after ultraviolence & honeymoon. 
    i couldn't really get into them. they felt even more dismal than born to die somehow.
    i just felt like it was going deeper and deeper, harder and harder, getting darker and darker etc etc :/
    but then LFL came around and i was...... FULLY OBSESSED with this woman again lmao. i still think its her most ambitious album, and if it was a 14 track album, it WOULD be her best work. it is still my favorite, but, i think certain song choices really brought it down.
    and it helped me to appreciate honeymoon and ultraviolence a million times more. i don't know how or why. lmao.
     
    but i personally really hope BB was the bridge  cause i like the album a lot in theory, i just felt disappointed compared to NFR & COTCC. i wouldn't mind seeing jack again but i would love if we could reinvent the wheel yet again. but i'll be streaming no matter what it is!

    BUS is the best song off COTCC, can't change my mind

    not to get into the whole authenticity thing but stylised *personas* can be genuine as well

    I skip dealer every time 
    i think miles Kane makes it sound like a bad crossover with the arctic monkeys and I just don’t think it fits well with the rest of the album at all!

    2 months later I can confirm that this is a 6.5/10 - 7/10. Chemtrails outsold with consistency and lyrics but BB does have some interesting ventures sonically that I'd like her to explore more.
     
    I want her Joni Mitchell era to finally arrive, and Chemtrails was the closest to that. But I also want something lush and melodic like NFR and UV ugh I can't wait for the next album.

    I think Chemtrails is the better album for me out of the 2021 releases. To me, it has higher highs and I prefer its intimate atmosphere and shorter, more precise track list. 
     
    Blue Banisters has lower highs and lower lows imo. I also just think it’s too long of an album with too much going on. It feels messy and less purposeful to me.

    COTCC for me is the better Lana album of 2021. I’ll never forget that cold Monday in January when I was rushing to get home from work and listening to title track for the first time. It still gives me chills. 
     
    WD-COCC-TJF is the best 1-2-3 punch. WAH/NAWWAL/DBJAG are all career highlights. Yosemite proves LFL was her at her peak, BUS is a missed soundscape (I love the smokey bar feel of the song) and Dance Till We Die’s bridge still hits so so hard! 
     
    i know she killed the Chemtrails era basically the day after it came out by announcing RCS, but it deserved so much more

    She’s saying “and by the mayor, the rallies in the streets…”! This line seems to connect to part of a stanza in LA Who Am I to Love You:
     
    ”Hancock Park, it's treated me very badly, I'm resentful
    The witch on the corner, the neighbor nobody wanted
    The reason for Garcetti's extra security”
     
    Eric Garcetti is the mayor of LA, and Lana has a house in Hancock Park, so it seems that she lives close to the mayor and is alluding to this in both the poem and VFR!

    For me, 'Dealer' is just a trifle, almost a novelty track. It doesn't bother me. It would be interesting to hear Lana doing both parts.
     
    To me, it's unfortunate that the wider public always seems to get to know primarily what are essentially Lana's B-side tracks, like the 'Summertime Sadness' remix, 'Doin Time,' and now 'Dealer.' The broad public has never heard the essences of her work, all her best material.
