I need youtube to cut me off on the reaction videos, I can’t stop. The consistent sleeping on If You Lie Down With Me is really starting to get under my skin

the reactions to this song and Thunder have me...:whoopi:

 

even my boyfriend loved the album, but Thunder and IYLDWM he said he needed a few listens to "get" whatever that means

I feel like i'm in the minority who loves the production choice in WFWF. It elevates the song completely and fits the title and thematic elements of the track

It’s the sound of 1995 pop and I’m obsessed

Comfortably numb, but with lithium came poetry

 

Obsessed with Wildflower Wildfire lately :oprah3:

 

This makes me think of the Nirvana song Lithium, which is right in line with the themes of WW, and as it follows the name of another legendary song, could this be a double-entendre? 

 

With Pink Floyd and Nirvana came poetry. Or when I added some Nirvana to my Pink Floyd.

 

Imagining the young woman in hospitals, listening to Nirvana on her ipod and finding poetry as a way out :dua:

Another 4.5/5 review.

Quote

While Blue Banisters is a definitively long listen (one hour and two minutes to be exact), it by no means feels in need of editing or trimming down. Each individual song on the record has its own purpose, and Del Rey’s vocal and lyrical abilities shine throughout the album’s entirety. Entering a new era of Lana — one of minimal production, near-unaltered vocals and entrancing songwriting galore — the LP is Del Rey’s best work yet and is certainly worth being thrown on repeat for months, even years to come.

i'm not ready for anthony fantano dragging the previously unreleased songs we all knew & loved, cherry, nectar, living legend, & thunder... :ohno:

 

this is 1 reason why i wouldn't want aka to be released, i don't feel like people would understand it and i would hate to see reviewers & critics hate on it or act as if it's just a plain old album with a bunch of "cheap" & "incohesive" songs

People would tear AKA apart if it got re-released 100%. Especially songs like QOTGS, Brite Lites, PMIAM and Smarty. The only tracks I can see the GP liking are Pawn Shop Blues and Kill Kill. I would say Yayo, but I've seen Lana get shit for that song in the past about it being too "submissive". But anyways, in terms of Blue Banisters, I have noticed that there's such a different between people who already knew the songs listening to the unreleased tracks on the album and the people who didn't. I mean, obviously there would be, but that difference is a lot more obvious than I had expected.
