I’m consumed by this record in a way that hasn’t been present since Honeymoon 🥺🥺🥺 The run of  Dealer to Living Legend is perfect. And I cannot get the melodies from BBS and VFR out of my head :wub: 

 

Same, I really thought Lana had lost me after COCC but then she came back and released her best album :icant:

As long as Flopde stans don't go on twitter and call out the sales numbers....

 

Bah who cares? The new Billboard rules are stupid AF and sure were never meant to be in a pandemic situation, with vinyls getting delayed for every artist and with a jammed-packed fall schedule. Lorde had the good idea to release before the big fall rush.
But in the end, even for GP, We all know which album is superior :true:

I love all of those songs, but I had never noticed that there wasn’t a clear « successor » to those on BB… That’s how good this freaking album is.

We know she reuses words and phrases a great deal--I hope, for example, that she never writes another song with 'beautiful' or 'beauty' in the title.

 

A lot of people thought what is now called 'Nectar of the Gods' was 'Wild One' due to the similarity of the lyrics.

 

'Black,' 'blue' everything, 'pools' or 'by the pool,' 'wild,' 'fuck'in crazy,' guns, drugs, older men/daddy, flowers of all kinds, the beach and the ocean----these are words, symbols, phrases and ideas Lana loves. 

 

We haven't seen the 'Queens of Saigon' in a while. 

I’m actually disappointed their is no ‘Candle in the Wind’ on this album :crossed:

I want to articulate something, I feel like while I prefer this album immensely over COTCC, a few songs from COTCC are like untouchable. Like White Dress, COTCC, Wild at Heart are just like elite and while BB has serious bangers, they never touch the height of these songs.

 

does anyone have similar feelings? Like BB is a better album/experience, but COTCC has some utterly beautiful songs?

 

Yes! As as whole, I prefer BB, but, just like you said, White Dress and the title track are in another level of greatness.

Other fan bases making fun of Lana for doing only 30k when their fave is struggling on there 3rd album.  I’d like to see Halsey or Billie do next to zero promotion, disable social media still sell 200k on an 8th album…them girls would drop fast.

Yes...Copysey or Bullie Eyelash can only dream of even making 10 albums in 10 years.

Lol.

Lana literally walked so L*rde and H*lsey and B*llie and all these other flops could run… and they STILL tripped over. Not a single female contemporary artist is even in the same league as Lana.

:thumb3: I’ll add to that that Billie and Halsey both have strong pop vibes to their « alt », which helps them get played on radio (by the way, no way Halsey could have released her latest in the beginning, it’s her least «accessible » album to date). Lana is a singer songwriter. What she does is art, with very little consideration in making her songs sound like « singles ». She is bold to keep on doing music that she loves without seeking a commercial sound. And yeah, she is incredibly successful when you line up the facts like you did!

Once again, I totally agree with you :flutter:

Here we go again bashing other female artists just because their fans are being annoying :pls:

 

We are not bashing them, we are just pointing out the immaturity of (some of) their fanbase, and spilling facts about Lana's importance in the musical industry - which is merely objective. 

 

Now, having said that, 

Spoiler

Floper Fower sucks so bad it hurts :creep:

Guys. We really do need to organise a streaming party. Is there any way to ask other fandoms to participate?

Dealer & IYLDWM are having their moments. Let's do something for them!!! :justride2: If we play the cards right, Blue Banisters might secure its #1 spot on Billboard 200 next week.

I’m so conflicted with Dealer… I love Lana’s part so bad and how sultry the production is, but I really cannot stand Miles Kane’s voice…

I now understand how frustrating it was for the people who liked Breaking Up Slowly but didn’t like Nikki’s voice. At the end of the day, we cannot force ourselves to appreciate every singer in the world, but I wish I could play Dealer more often without having to directly skip to Lana’s legendary screaming part


I'll do it for the right reasons

Besides 'Cherry' that's only really great live, I never thought the other two were that great tbh—they're just kinda there for me. 'Dealer' is above it all honestly. :smile3:
