Blue Banisters is like a fine wine to me. Of course I loved it when it came out, but after this first month or so, it's become an album I see aspects of my own life in. It hits deeper now. And oddly enough, I can't help but wonder if the sharp changes and juxtapositions in sound throughout the album were done on purpose because of the time period(s) the songs were written about. This is probably her most personal record along with Ultraviolence in my opinion. It's just so beautiful. Even the tracks that aren't in my top five or anything are tracks that I adore.

the way i havent listened to this in weeks... lanas weakest album to date? me thinks so

That spot will always belong to Lust for Life I think. 
 

 

I listened to this album for the first time in weeks when my vinyl finally arrived a few days ago. It still sounds fresh to me. My top 2 Lana albums are NFR and UV while LFL is last but other than that I find her albums so hard to rank. They are all pretty equal to me

The Trio honestly fits so well I can't believe people are still acting like it doesn't :true: It's a perfect little gut punch after announcing her pained departure in Arcadia before the deep dive she takes in Black Bathing Suit.

i love the trio and dealer, i think if it weren't for them the album would sound too long winded and one tone, it adds a dash of pop and energy imo

 

the trio interlude, dealer and moments like the BBS and LL outros are what make this album so interesting to me. They give it life tbh.

To me it does, Arcadia is Lana expressing her sadness and pain and then The Trio is more about expressing anger, like she’s been through enough and puts her middle finger in the air for all the people who’ve been hurting her

thats in your head

Yes. I consider The Trio to be a part of Arcadia. I bet LDR does also. I mean...is there even a break between the two?

Love that we got Dealer immediately on the next record after we found out about it. Could have been like Yosemite where waited two album cycles later, or worse… :wat: 

 

yes!! and lana never fails to surprise me– i really thought dealer was going to be a super dark, diamanda galas esque song based on her description and it is really something else entirely. her mind...

I have a regret.

 

I wish that instead of "Skuj", I registered as "Fuckin' Mr Brightside". 

 

Edit: I like my new sig. Do you?

Ya'll I think Blue Banisters is becoming one those albums that plays a huge roll in my current state of mind/life. I don't know how to explain it, but I feel the same about UV, BTD and NFR. Don't get me wrong I listen to all her songs and etc, but sometimes i just listen to a certain group of songs from LFL, HM, and COCC depending on my mood or if I want to relive a certain memory/feeling that happened during those times that I first heard those songs. Even tho I love those albums as a whole , but with Blue Banisters I keep going to the whole thing. I know it's still pretty new, and I might just be in that mood but I can relate to almost every song in a way at this current time.

 

IDK if this post makes any sense or if anyone can relate in someway but yea lol. I know there isn't a huge gap between BB and COCC, and COCC has a bunch of songs that I can relate to a certain memory or feeling, but I feel like BB captures that as a whole a lot better than COCC did. IDK. lol
