I cannot believe people actually hated it when it leaked? Disgustinnnnnn! lol jk

 

I've seen some people say that it's getting big on tiktok?

It's starting to. One sound on there using the song has about 2k videos under it and some of the videos using it are getting over a million views. And like I said, right now it's the most streamed non-single on the album. It's kind of surprising, but I'm definitely not complaining because it's a fantastic song

I'm all about freedom and all that shit, but is it bad I low-key hope Lana's label forces her into making Dealer and Thunder singles :creep:

I posted about in the Text Book thread, but I'm too floored by it for it to go unnoticed lol. 

 

Text Book is actually far more layered than I initially realized. There is the obvious distinction between herself and Sean in terms of where they may stand on certain sociopolitical and/or human rights issues that is used as a backdrop for the dissolution of their relationship – but I am realizing that there are nods to the karmic family lineage that she keeps referring to peppered throughout the song. I think there is a level of genealogical ill situated in a historical and racial context that underlies this song, too (think about the track’s declaration to “rewrite history”, nods to the Black Lives Matter movement, and references to "Ol' Man River").

 

It is brilliant how she manages to create a lyrical and thematic interplay between the end of a committed relationship, reparations of historical family karma, public infamy, and strained parental relations. This is one of her best – if not the best – written songs. I think it is absolutely one of my top 5 favourites from her ever:cryney2:

since we’re talking about the trio… don’t hate me but imo the original is infinitely better and the interlude sounds cheap and unimaginative like it reminds me of something you’d hear on a sports channel or something . I’m so sorry yall lmfao 

agreed, like sure its fun to shake the ass to, but it doesn't fit in the context of the album, 

she shoulda added some moans or added a short sexy song instead (ie Gods & Monsters esq ;))

So true!! Must read your song/album analysis if you haven’t posted it already. Have you written the entire thing or only Text Book so far? :stareney2:

I gotta admit i miss that weird synth from the leaked version for dealer. 

im thinking if she were to release videos she'd probably just release them w no announcement like hope, or we'd have to wait a longer time post covers album. 

i actually think this just might be my most favorite Lana record. undoubtedly actually. the yellow cover's been growing so much on me, it just connects and for me at least, reps the overall feel of the record. 

i think intuitively, listening to the album the first few times i already got how things connected and it was just so powerful, and what's better about it is that the music on this one just seems like it was made for some kind of eternity, it has a feel of being eternal. it's gentle, it's flowing, but still leaves a kind of imprint. 

i'd love some more music from Lana ofc, but I think it'd be alright if this was her last album as her own artist/ Lana Del Rey. It feels like she's already said all that she's wanted to say with her career (at least so far?). the point is, the album's strangely contenting and powerfully fresh and overall, serene.

I feel very proud to have this on my shelf when the vinyl finally gets to me

So I'm not the person who's hippest to youth trends (if I can speak like a boomer for a second ;) ) but won't releasing Dealer as a single and making and pushing a video, basically destroy it in terms of its coolness/viral status?

Regardless, a (proper, interesting) video (that people will want to watch + has true replay value) will never be out in time to truly capitalize on it's viral-ness. Sadly these trends move too quickly.

Arcadia still amazes me and it being Lana's favorite track makes so much sense since it is poetry at its finest as the metaphors are very subjective but not hard to interpret and get, plus the outro's a persevering & sweet "fuck you" and a display of confidence in reference to carry on. It's a comforting tune <3

That bitch ass fuck face The Observer just gave her a 60/100 review.

Damn, we really need a 9/10 or even a 10/10 right now. Why is there still only 16 reviews at this point? :trisha:

One thing this era taught me is to avoid leaks when possible. Similar to Honeymoon, I’d argue this record is best when listened to from start to finish as a cohesive work. 
 

I think my initial indifference toward the album would have been avoided had I not just skimmed through the “unheard” songs when they leaked. 
 

I definitely have a greater appreciation for it now, and I’m almost considering avoiding future singles until the entirety of LDR9 is out:smokes:
