I know we're not getting a tour for this album, but I'm bored so I decided to make what would be my dream setlist if we were to get one for this album. I limited it to 18 songs (excluding the intro) and tried to put a bigger focus on the last few albums rather than BTD and LFL:

 

Intro - The Trio 

1. If You Lie Down With Me

2. Dark But Just A Game

3. Mariners Apartment Complex

4. Terrance Loves You

5. Violets for Roses

6. Black Bathing Suit

7. Dealer

8. Black Beauty 

9. Tulsa Jesus Freak

10. Cherry

11. Cinnamon Girl 

12. Thunder

12. Video Games (on the swing)

13. Cherry Blossom (on the swing) 

14. Yosemite

15. California 

16. Chemtrails Over The Country Club

17. Get Free

18. Wildflower Wildfire

 

And then I can see her throwing in an unreleased song every once in a while, but not Serial Killer

now we come to my assessment

 

Text Book 6/10  (definitely not a bad song, but it doesn't bother me that much.)

Blue Banisters 3/10 ( it has no ups and downs. I don't listen to this song.)

Arcadia 7/10 (verses are better than the chorus. has a warm atmosphere, I like it a lot.)

Interlude -The Trio 9/10 (this is how the next album should sound like)

Black Bathing Suit 9/10 ( Born to Die says hi. One of my favorites.)

If you lie down with me 10/10 ( absolutely magical. top favorite. has what it takes to become a lana classic and is a career highlight)

Beautiful 4/10 ( boring. I switch off immediately.)

Violets for Roses 8/10 (very dreamy and special. you really have to get involved)

Dealer 8/10 .( it's a grower. I'm slowly enjoying the song more and more.)

Thunder 9/10 ( i like the atmosphere of the song very much, unique. one of my favourites)

Wildflower Wildfire 10/10 ( best song on the album. mike dean has created a masterpiece here with her. absolutely gorgeous)

Nectar of the gods 5/10 ( okay, but nothing special.)

Living Legend 8/10 ( this song is a real classic for me. simple and timeless..)

Cherry Blossom 6/10 (is quite nice, but nothing more.)

Sweet Carolina 3/10 (I can't listen to this song.)

 

 overall a 7/10

 

 

I know it's your opinion but rating both Sweet Carolina and Blue Banisters a 3 is mind boggling 


You call me lavender, you call me sunshine.

Okay so in conclusion, Beautiful could’ve and should’ve been an email.

 

If I could be more like you, I would. But I can't and I'm glad about that.

 

Signing off,

Lana

I agree with those saying this record is a mix of all the previous in some moments.

textbook has this honeymoon feeling

black bathing suit has lust  for life  

if you lie down with me has ultraviolence 

thunder has a slow born to die vibe

cherry blossom has a paradise 

nectar is may jailer

violets for rose is kinda normy to me

beautiful picks up from where cocc ended 

 

and then we have

arcadia, blue banisters, sweet carolina presents a new vision

 

dealer kinda reminds me of the my bedroom is a sacred place   

 

But none the less BB>COCC>LFL

fight me

Yes, it is a bit of a bummer that if all the variants were readily available, she easily would have been #2 on the album charts instead of #8 but ... it is what it is. 

 

She's not worried about it, so we shouldn't be, either. I'm excited for all of us to get our vinyl and merch.

I can’t listen to the title track either, especially the first third. I have the ‘skip when shuffling’ box checked in iTunes.

LANA'S TEAM TAKE A HINT CHALLENGE

if Lana's team doesn't make the most of this 'Dealer' being viral thing, I'm guessing they purposefully want her to fall.

 

Now, another question for the culture — Is truly her label to blame? Are her managers? Is it her?

maybe she doesn't really care if it's viral :whatever2:

very true. She probably doesn't. She would've capitalized on the 'Queen of Disaster' thing a year a go.

 

Oh well. Tbh I personally don't care bout the sales, I stan a bunch of artists labelled as nobodies by the media. But the meltdowns of some stans on social media are a bit concerning.

Comfortably numb, but with lithium came poetry

 

Obsessed with Wildflower Wildfire lately :oprah3:

It’s a grower for sure. Grows more beautiful and poignant with time.
