unpopular opinion, but we are not all the same when it comes to admiring the endless talent of Lana Del Rey.

My album heriarchy remains as:

NFR

Honeymoon 

Blue Banisters

Lust for Life

Ultraviolence

Chemtrails 

BTD/AKA

Paradise

 

(take this lightly as something being on the bottom doesn't mean I don't like it, AKA literally changed me as a person lol)

 

But my title track ranking has switched to this:

Honeymoon
Chemtrails

Blue Banisters

Ultraviolence 

Born to Die

NFR

Lust for Life

You roll like thunder when you come crashin' in
Town ain't been the same since you left with all your friends
You roll like thunder when you come crashing in
Regattas in the wind, that's why you're visiting

 

I loved these lyrics in the demo, but these lines in the final are even more beautiful :wowcry:

my album ranking

 

Born To Die = Lust for Life

Sirens

Ultraviolence

Paradise

AKA

Norman Fucking Rockwell

Blue Banisters

Chemtrails Over the Country Club

Honeymoon

 

All of them are very close together except for Honeymoon. I don't like Honeymoon as an album (but I do like it as a random assortment of songs)

How is BB in everyone's top 3 already? :horror:

I wanna see what happens to those lists over the next month :brows:

I knew from the second I heard uv that it would be my all time favorite and it still is. Same for honeymoon. Greatness makes itself know immediately  :trisha:


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

I was just about to say this. When I heard Lust for Life, I knew that it was never going to be a favorite because of some of the messy (imo) songs in the first half. I know when I know!

Is she talking about someone who pretends to be happy to everybody but is instead depressed as f*** in Thunder?

 

I take it as her talking about someone with a strong social presence but one that is simultaneously an illusion since she got to know the person in an intimate way only to discover this "persona" the other person exudes in front of others (friends, acquaintances, maybe even lovers) is just a facade - only she knows who he's like when the party ends and all he has left is what exists besides the superficiality. That's why she knows he'll eventually leave: he can't commit to emotional intimacy because he'll always depend on veering in between party scenes and vapid interactions. At this point there's resignation from her because she's tired of this and also used to the feeling of seeing a loved one leave her for something she could (and probably did) give even though he's not willing to receive or reciprocate.

 

It's a simple song lyrically and very economic but every word packs so much meaning and feeling behind it that you can't help but picture a broader, bigger picture of what's behind their story. It's truly one of her best songs ever.
