In order for Lana to put out a memorable and impactful album she will have to work on it for more than than two years.

 

I knew this album would be a let down from the second she announced it.

 

Lana, what has happened to you? Take 10 years off and bring us something you've really put your heart and soul in.

 

This album is a one season money grab. Too bad that's all Lana seems to care about these days.

 

First things first, the quality of work Lana produces in incredibly short amounts of time is outstanding and should not be understated.

 

With that being said, I would love to see what Lana could put out if she and her producers spent maybe double the time (which would still be incredibly short compared to other artists) on her albums. Lana has an extremely high album turnover, but that often means writing a song in an hour (see: probably half of NFR), not tweaking or hardly tweaking the lyrics, having the production done and then moving on to the next song. The songs are shockingly good for the process being that short, but I do wonder about the incredible quality we'd get if she actually took the time to edit/perfect her work.

This entire forum has been dragging LFL through the mud for the past couple of years, but if u dare to say you're disappointed by NFR during the honeymoon phase and your views why, people jump on itphoto-21141.png?_r=1565351105

I mean just a couple of weeks ago people were calling Lana a white money grabbing woman because they thought she was trying to capitalize on her Looking For America song, and staff didn't lecture them...? photo-21141.png?_r=1565351105

It's like they can't accept that some people simply don't like any aspects of the album, and as fans of Lana's music they're entitled to voice that if they so wish. Not sure why people who tear Win's appearance apart don't get publicly lectured by staff, but people who voice their opinions on an album do. photo-21141.png?_r=1565351105

okay but the ppl who dragged win if i remember correctly DID get called out by staff

Seems like you found a friend baby <3

 

In all seriousness, I love you all, including Prodigal Sun; I myself didn't like Norman when it came out. But entire negativity simply screams trolling.

 

Okay now, I'm off to the races

The Win bullying has been happening for at least a year now, it rarely gets addressed. I've seen pages upon pages of it build up while staff were online.  :crossed:

 

Anyway, Lana sounds so good on Bartender. BBC Radio 1 performance please.  :flutter:

My late thoughts on NFR- 

My holy trinity is California, Bartender and Norman (title track). Can't stop replaying these! 

 

I love The Greatest, MAC, Venice, Fuck It, Doin Time (WOW what an MV!), and Hope. 

 

HIAB is cute and has a stunning pre-chorus. Cinnamon and Love song are cute too but I haven't formed a connection to these (yet). 

 

I don't like TNBAR as much as the original version. I loved the sarcasm and sass in the original.

 

How To Disappear is the only disappointment tbh. I stan the Apple live version so much it's on my top 10. But I can't get with this cheap xmas version. Just a piano and guitar would've made the lyrics shine so much more. 

Overall, this album is stunning and was worth the wait! We were well fed  :defeated:

I LOVE California's chorus/bridge, but the verses are so...ugly vocally, tbh. 

YES sis I agree so much, the chorus/bridge is so intense and fiery but those out tune verses and pre-chorus are so ugly and layered terribly that it makes it sound like a demo I wish her vocals were better produced I had this problem with heroin  :ohno:

I will never comprehend the delusion of being upset that a song has added instruments.... this album would’ve been way too slow & dragged towards the end if HTD had been another slow piano ballad. It’s got a beautiful build musically & some cute effects; to top it off some of her best lyrics / vocals that actually sound GOOD and not shouty or awkwardly layered... (looking at u miss California) idk :rip:

 

I will defend the underdog til the end
