she really set herself free from others' expectations on this one. it's a different kind of immaculate, it's a perfect blend of sweet, tenderness, fire and languishing i'm excited knowing it'll be another solid album for time and others to travel with and through

Top 4 LDR album. If you get it you get it if you don’t you don’t if you know you know

 

Spoiler

That said I would probably remove NotG, LL, and CB simply because they don’t fit with the rest of the album as they are. They are stripped back ballads like much of the rest of the album but they sound a decade old. They’re her songs and she’s free to do with them as she wishes but I don’t get why she didn’t re-record or add anything new to them; as has already been pointed out she re-did Thunder and IYLDWM. The album flows better without these three songs in their current state imo

 

Spoiler

Also no NFR is not in that top 3

i remember listening to NotG years ago back when it was "Wild One" and thinking it would be so cool if she released it. i was so gagged that she actually did.

I didn’t understand the place Nectar of the Gods on BB’s tracklist until last week: all the songs starting with WFWF are about motherhood, including that one. NOTG’s chorus could be sung from the perspective of the mother getting Wild on her daughter, raging at her like it’s said she does in WFWF, and the verses are about the « hole » it created in her daughter, feeling lost.

Taking the fact that Thunder/NotG/LL/CB are old songs out the picture, the track run from Thunder to Sweet Carolina is the best sequence of tracks in her career imo (I feel like I say this every time I come in here, but it's true. I also really love Dealer, but Thunder to Sweet Carolina is where I see it as a sequence)

It really does hit, I remember playing all those songs on vinyl and being like wow what a way to end this album

 

especially with sweet Carolina, I had to pause for a minute and regroup

Arcadia, BBS, IYLDWM and Thunder are all aging like fine, fucking wine.:oprah3:

NotG, LL and CB = unbothered :worship:

Happy birthday to the 3 surprise singles!

 

What a glorious day that was, I remember being so shocked that we were getting not one but three new songs so soon after Chemtrails was out, and then being completely blown away by the emotion and maturity of the tracks. All 3 are masterpieces and such gorgeous parts of this album.

This album is so slow like it moves like a glacier. But I also think it's pretty gorgeous in a messy, very personal way. Lana is so intimate, it's like she tells you her darkest secrets but you still don't really know who she is.

 

Let's rewrite history, I'll do this dance with you...

 

There's a hole that's in my heart all my women try and heal
They're doin' a good job convincin' me that it's not real
It's heat lightning

 

I promise that nothing will burn you.

Wait do ppl actually hate NotG :pout:

 

I mean I don’t really care for its presence on the album bc it’s a random demo from 2013 on an album full of more fleshed out/recent recordings but as a song it is THAT Girl and deserves Respect

Tbh, this album was the most Lana album since Honeymoon. If this was the release after Honeymoon I'd have absolutely zero criticism about her music and it would have made perfect sense tbh. Realistically, it's stupid and pointless to imagine that, but like, IMAGINE THAT
