Do you have any songs on it that you enjoy?

Yes! I really like Beautiful, Dealer, NotG and I think some of the other tracks might grow on me but in my head this album is a mess

I'm struggling to perceive it as one body of work 

Idk as I said I'll give it some time


Thanks for buying me my meal at Denny's and my shit at Home Depot. Thanks for that, kids. Luv ya

Tbh I think the album would’ve been perfectly fine without beautiful, violets for roses, and cherry blossom :true: in fact, it seems more cohesive without these songs (also my most skipped songs hehe). 
 

also, the fact that trio doesn’t transition smoothly into BBS? an absolute missed opportunity. idk, I know Lana made the track list to chronicle her life as lizzy to now, but I think a lot of people would enjoy the album more if it was rearranged differently. Personally, I don’t even think the tracklist is a good representation of lizzy to Lana, but it’s also not my life story to tell

1. Text Book

2. Blue Banisters

3. Arcadia

4. Black Bathing Suit

5. Dealer

6. Thunder

7. Wildflower Wildfire 

8. Sweet Carolina

 

There it is, perfect BB. We have progression (TB, BB, BBS, D, WW) we have classic lana (Arcadia) and mix of both (Thunder & SC). And don’t get me wrong I like all the songs but those UV outtakes are truly unnecessary, same with Cherry. She has 7 albums and we need evolution, not weaker versions of older songs

Damn You is bad and one of Lana's worst unreleased songs :eek: I couldn't care less about the final version leaking (although I did like that alt. Chris Braide version of it)

Arcadia, Beautiful and Violets are so syrupy to me. I think Lana has always made music that adults would enjoy, like Video Games, Young and Beautiful, Old Money, HM, Love Song ,etc but these straight up sound like adult contemporary songs that would play at my local CVS or something. Strange to see an album full of this and then Dealer lol though it concerns me that these songs are likely her most recently written ones??

 

 

i love VFR but agree on beautiful (especially) and arcadia– hard to square away that the same artist who made BBS made those

lana's old songwriting > lana's recent/current songwriting :oopna:

if you mean

 

writing songs about something that possibly never happened, creating new worlds with your music, using captivating language with scenarios and allegories > writing songs about literally anything and anyone without proper editing like any diary entry, making the result seem like you're bored to even try to come up with something exciting 

 

then I must admit, I agree :true:

 

Spoiler

I will always love her poetry and lyrics and BB truly has some great moments but still

 


strong like a tree but the unlucky one

I love Black Bathing Suit but can’t stand those birds bitches hollering in the first few seconds, like shut the fuck up
 

I’ll have to crop them out later 😒✂️

It depends on the song for me. Like, for example, I think that AKA has some of the best lyrics Lana's ever written but I also think that Blue Banisters does. And then there's a few older lyrics that just make me cringe, same going for recent lyrics. That was just a long way to say I'm somewhere in the middle on that lol :omfg2:

Lol I like them because it reminds me of butterfies G&M remix that I used to listen to (still do)

I think it's to add beach vibes? Seagulls? Idk they don't bother me but in my country there's no shortage of noisy arse birds (or noisy arse animals in general)

I am, however, annoyed by the lyric about laughing at poor people. That's incredibly cringe coming from a multi millionaire

:wtf3:

This may be a bit of a hot take, but I've seen so many people mention that they've liked BB way more than they thought they would, and I kind of agree with them. As I've mentioned in other threads, I really do love all the singles, but I don't feel as though they best represented the album throughout its pre-release promotion. Dealer, IYLDWM, BBS, and others have some more grungy vibes that I feel like didn't really shine through from the promo. So many of us on here were nervous about getting an entire album full of piano ballads (which I would have been more than happy with, but this album had many more sides to it). That said, I am glad that Lana chose the songs that meant most to her, and that's the most important thing, but I do think even replacing one of the singles, or dropping one or two more from those I've listed, would have definitely given more hype to the album's release to some of her more casual listeners.
