Omg lmfao, you're going  hard for him. Are you his fan or is he your secret crush? The cocc argument is irrelevant & we'll continue acting deranged if & when we please. Do not @ me again, I don't come on here to argue with people - I come here to laugh with my girlies. 

 

Begone! :tommy:

Please take your toxicity to a different site, perhaps twitter.  You’ve insulted multiple users but sure you aren’t here to argue….

 

This exhausting discourse aside, the album is great on the 20th listen. I dont care very much for Beautiful or VFR. That’s not to say they’re bad but I think the rest of the album is much better/ intery

I don’t see anyone ever praising the title track… It’s my favorite song on the album, it’s so simple but the lyrics are just striking


I'll do it for the right reasons

Withstanding all the time, changes and seasons

One of her best songs ever! The lyrics, the atmosphere, the emotion. It amazes me every time I hear it :wowcry:

Simply untrue, I only insulted the rat who body shamed Lana which deserves to be dragged. But if anyone I have "insulted" would like to come forward at this moment I'd be happy to apologize (except to the rat). If you're going to make up things at the very least, make them believable - I've never even gotten into an argument on here because (in my time here) even when people disagree, they're still pleasant. 

 

Yes I agree Beautiful is not as strong as the rest


Truly ethereal, and it’s a huge pain in the ass

Omg the amount of reviews I've seen mention pandemic weight gain in Black Bathing Suit and then move on to a different track blows my mind. This is like the track that they should be analyzing deeply considering it's a full drag of them, but instead they're just like wow Lana is so relatable singing about clothing sizes. :um2:

 

people are supposed to be analyzing her work and are focusing on her appareance and particularly in her weight gain, so gross and definitely misogynistic :pls: 

 

especially since it literally seems to be in the nature of "she's so relatable singing about pandemic weight gain". I'm sure - even though this may be insensitive to speculate - that if she truly is on lithium or some other medication, like antipsychotics or antidepressants, they are the main cause for the changes in her appareance. and not that it even matters, but she honestly has made very clear that she's not interested following the glamourous lifestyle or impossible beauty standards set by the industry, but is focused in living the simple, carefree life and manifesting serenity.

 

for me, Black Bathing Suit seems to be a way of Lana saying that if she gains weight it doesn't matter, and it can be interpreted as a sign that it's to her, a side effect of happiness in a way. I have a long history of unhealthy eating and body dysmorphia, this is one of the reasons I love the song so much :wowcry: 

 

IMO, if people want to discuss the changes in her apparance that she herself addresses in Black Bathing Suit for example, they really should be paying attention to how it can also be an allegory for Lana realizing that she really doesn't care about anything but finding inner peace and happiness.

the transition from Thunder to Wildflower Wildfire is interesting. "If you're on fire, if you're on fire you should just keep burning" turns into "I learn not to turn into a wildfire" and "I promise nothing will burn you" and "like the others baby, burns, burns, burns"

Counterpoint: the album release is a moment of global celebration for fans and a listening party is a magical way to appreciate the music with friends old and new
