me listening to love song imagining it as the first dance at my non-existent wedding  :crying4:  :crying4:  :crying4:


'So I try to say goodbye my friend // I'd like to leave you with something warm // But never have I been a blue calm sea // I have always been a storm'

Guys it's been 13 days and I'm still so in love with this album, I can't believe that I like every song, I wasn't expecting to at all and I'm just so happy and full of candy  :smile3:  :smile3:  :smile3:

 

 

My favorites are (no order) MAC, NFR, VB, Cinnamon Girl, Bartender, The Greatest

 

Also, does the beginning of Love Song remind anyone else of the instrumental beginning of the Blue Jeans video? The chords at the beginning of LS just recall the grandiosity of the Blue Jeans chorus for me for whatever reason.

Tbh when I listen to the album now I skip Love Song bc it’s boring and it feels like a brick wall blocking my way from the next track, her magnificence Cinnamon Girl

its just jacks style of mixing. He likes to leave everything very unmixed and raw sounding

 

Ultraviolence is raw sounding, but it didn't sound unpolished? A lot of tracks on NFR have either this demo-like quality or just sound like they were recored with a cheap microphone (The title track, Cinnamon, HTD, California, The greatest) I mean I love most of these songs, but the production is extremely lackluster to me.

I feel this!! Some songs border on painful to listen to on higher volumes, as if in the track itself all instruments / layers are being played at exactly the same volume so the entire track comes out very loud and almost scratchy sounding. Idk if that makes sense.

 

still love the album tho  :flutter:

Makes a lot of sense to me! I really feel that, I tend to listen to music pretty loudly especially in my car, but a lot of songs on NFR end up sounding pretty scratchy unfortunately. The quality of the recording process is questionable  :rip:

That's debatable, when Lana goes in for the high note before the second verse it sounds a little iffy to me, also I don't like how her vocals sound super muffled towards the end. But my biggest criticism about the title track, even though I think it's one of the best on the record, the piano sounds super cheaply recorded.

Hi. I have listened to this album multiple times every day since it leaked. I cannot stop. It means so much to me. I would like to give it a rest. How do I do that? Can somebody explain what is happening here? Jesus, Lana.

I think I relate to Hope more and more every time I listen to it. I loved it when it first came out, but I overdid it (like all Lana songs when they come out) and I haven’t listened much since the spring. I decided to give it a listen yesterday and it’s been on repeat for me since. I’m not sure how much personal stories are allowed here, so I’ll keep it brief but this song means so much to me. I’m a closeted lesbian and my family is v homophobic. They pushed me to marry a man, even tho I am not out to them or really anyone, I feel like they know and so now I’m married to man which isn’t what I want, but I do have hope that one day things will be better. Obviously not what Lana was referring to, but I feel on some level I understand what she means about having hope even tho it’s a dangerous thing.
