Sadly (and unfairly) QFTC ended the highs that came with NFR, and then the mesh mask and other controversies only furthered that, so by the time Chemtrails and the three singles came out, the press was afraid to write about Lana.

I totally failed to consider QFTC (because I have erased that from my brain lol), so thanks for the correction. You're totally right on that point and I think that's way more accurate than how I said it. (However, I don't think the lack of press around her newer music projects are from fear, I think publications like Pitchfork are just kind of over it at this point, and partly for good reason. But I don't think they're really afraid to write about her at all.)

IYLDWM makes me want to have a boy / girlfriend so much for some reason, like someone I really love & trust, so that I can cuddle & dance with them  to this song while singing " Dance me all around the room ,spin me around like ballerina super high, dance me all around the moon like six times till I'm sick & I cry":oprah::wowcry:

 


' I think I need to add that song, "Dealer ", where I'm just screaming my head off. People don't know what it sounds like when I yell. And I do yell.':scream:

And she finally did:gurl:

Beautiful is Lana's revenge in the most simplistic and, well, beautiful form. It's a song where she basically says "I'm allowed to write about my experiences, good and bad, and make them into something beautiful because that's what art is". And she shows them that by making the song sound so pretty despite being a song that deals with that frustration. I feel like it seems like a basic song on the surface, but it's honestly such a smart song. The Picasso lyric is also what I find to be the most telling.

I think there was such a post-NFR letdown from Chemtrails and those three singles that some publications like Pitchfork chose not to review/give much attention to Arcadia. There will always be media attention around Lana, but there seems to be a little less nowadays. I think a lot of music critics just don't care as much anymore. People who like her will always like her, and those don't probably won't start now. NFR kind of felt like a peak for her career: she was getting all of the media attention she got during that early BTD to Ultraviolence era but instead of it being confused or negative, it was largely positive. Chemtrails kind of broke that stride and I suspect BB will really end it. 

Chemtrails is the second most reviewed album released this year on AOTY and like someone else said it’s her second most acclaimed album. Don’t know if BB will be acclaimed or not but don’t think critics are going to ignore it.

This project has a lack of press because she doesn't want it, and pitchfork write about her pretty often (they changed BTD score last week). Also the fact that NFR was named best female album by the pitchfork readers will give BB momentum in the moment they decide the score, like QFTC and the mesh mask made COTCC tank. P.s.: sorry for my English, feel free to correct me, I want to improve:hoe:

I think this year is literally her "standstill", like - she doesnt even want to do a proper promo, and based on that fact - i think Chemtrails still did a pretty great job in that given condition and Blue Banisters might do its best i believe, remember: she went offline, she basically abandoned all the possible promo activities in her ability because she wanted to prove that her music has its own voice to speak for itself - her story, and how she would decide to narrate it just the way it is. Just imagine how huge she would get if Ben gave her that Dua Lipa promotion energy?

plus we're lucky that she's doing a performance on US television, something she hasn't done since BTD if we exclude chemtrails

sis i literally stated above. I understand that she doesn't wanna do it. I only  said that to get y'all imagine the level she would be if she did WANT to do the promo stuff, because she clearly doesn't flop or nobody cares about her like y'all think she is, theoretically. It's not that i'm saying "oh what a lazy bitch" or anything like that jesus christ. :illumilana2:

i literally said above: "remember: she went offline[...] because she wanted to prove that her music has its own voice to speak for itself". I literally know that she herself doesn't want to do it. 

What i meant is " If she let Ben gave her the same Dua lipa energy..."
