I don't even understand how he couldn't like one single track aside from the other woman. like not even ONE ? not even west coast ? girl come on now

 

it's a little ironic bc that's usually the track people DON'T LIKE from ultraviolence

 

(if we're excluding guns & roses, which i'll never get why people hate it :oopna:)

I highly doubt he's ever gotten wild and fucking crazy like the color blue

I get your point and I sort of agree, but you didn’t need to fat shame him… or anyone, for that matter

There’s nothing too exciting about a simple life with a child in a backyard and yet here you are in a fansite of hers. Do you enjoy being a contrarian just for the sake of being? How can you even fathom the idea that the songs in these past 3 records aren’t complex just because it doesn’t suit your Lolita fantasies? How can you say she’s not experimenting with her sound when you have TB, Dealer and BBS as prime examples of an experimentation within her own sound? At this point you’re just babbling things that make virtually no sense. Just say you’re not as interested in the themes she’s exploring and move on?

I literally said that the themes shes exploring about simplicity i don’t find interesting ☠️ You’re constantly projecting telling me that anyone who doesn’t find her current music captivating are all just wanting another born to die or some lolita type bullshit. 
 

She went from singing about the chateau marmont and exotic cars to her pickup truck toyota and the hilton hotel which are very normal every day places and things. Lets not act like she isn’t idolizing the mundane at this point, because she is. She literally doesn’t want an exciting life anymore and the music reflects that, period.

so what if she doesn't want what you would consider an "exciting life"? honestly if you're that bothered by her because she's not singing about the same exact things for a decade maybe just listen to her old music or stop being a fan :bye:

And that’s what makes her music more relatable  now. Who used to relate to her singing about chateau marmont and glamourous stuff?? Rich folks?

She’s been singing about her daily life and her simplest inner thoughts since NFR, and her lyrics have become more relatable than ever.

The Lana you’re holding on to is not coming back, like it or not. You’re free to unstan if you don’t like what she does now, it’s perfectly okay to not like her anymore. What’s not okay is spreading so much negativity as if Lana’s music was objectively bad now when it’s objectively the best it’s ever been.

I never said it was objectively bad I said it was uninteresting, don’t put words in my mouth. Also saying her current music is objectively good is not an okay assertion to make. 
 

And why is relatable music the measure of how good a song is??! To me at least, you don’t have to relate to something for it to be good. People watch keeping up with the kardashians because it’s relatable? No, because its exciting and fun to watch rich people do shit. Interesting storytelling doesn’t have to be relatable to be intriguing. Most of the time NOT ALL of the time there should be some element of fantasy to keep things interesting

i just feel so lucky to be in the minority of people  (basically just us) who are the closest to fully understanding what Lana is doing, it would be so sad if she was just another alt girl to me. I'll never unstan because of what she has created, which is art and just a perspective that speaks to my soul like nothing ever has. Fantano and a lot of people will never know the feeling and thats so sad for them but it makes me feel so thankful LOL :flutter:

F*ntano’s review was mostly valid, even though i disagree with him. He acknowledged that there were really solid songs and highlights on the album, which he thought were marred by her dedication to the “one take” aesthetic— not an insanely biased take by any measure.

I also find it interesting that so many people find this album to be “breaking the rules”, when so many hooks of the songs on this album just consist of one word or phrase sung three times, or just too much repetition for my taste in general.

Hes wrong abt dealer tho, if anything is wrong with it, its the hollow production.

Idk i was hoping for another 7 from him but i understand.

I also wanna clarify that even with my issues with the album, i still love it and its in my top 3.

I think it's okay to like and dislike aspects of the album and idk why some people need it to be all good or all bad

It's not even a week old and needs time to settle


Thanks for buying me my meal at Denny's and my shit at Home Depot. Thanks for that, kids. Luv ya

I'm glad Lana's left Fantano behind. Having him like her was always something of a 'turd in the chocolate box' (as a friend of mine used to put it), so good riddance. Forget about just the score he gave Ultraviolence, watch the actual video. It's one of the most moronic ten minutes ever. You can't accuse him of being a misogynist, but he is an idiot - this is a guy who (rightly) loves Lingua Ignota, who is experimental, but can't deal with someone he's put in a different box trying to go out of it. Even when, if you look over all of Lana's career, she's constantly changed what she's done.
