Unpopular Lana Opinions

Dealer would've sounded perfect if it had a less monotone instrumental. I like the lyrics, their singing, the intonation, basically everything except the music. I feel like an instrumental similar to one in the Ultraviolence album would fit perfectly. 

 

The instrumental is the only thing keeping me from completely loving Dealer (although I do really, really like it). Hopefully once Lana starts doing shows again, whenever that will be, she performs it with a more interesting instrumental with her live band.

personally, i love the instrumental. even though it's simple it reminds me so much of mermaid motel type beat and a similar underground alt rock psychedelia vibe. 

plus i think the instrumental needs to be on the simpler side bc of the wildness of the vocals. it might have been overstimulating if there were more dynamic production elements on top of I DONT WANNAAAAA LIVVEEEEEE

They would definitely have to strike a delicate balance between the instrumentals and vocals because of how chaotic her voice is. I would like it they did an even more psychedelic spin on it. Similar to Mermaid Motel demo, but even more so. It would be an eargasm. That's just my opnion though.

 

She better perform that song live one day. :defeated:

I agree. I like the idea of a simple instrumental because a maximalist one wouldn't fit Lana BUT the one for the song sounds cheap and random. It's like they had a random beat ready and asked Lana and the dude to sing over it. I feel like a Cruel World or West Coast type of instrumental would fit more. 

I still love the song tho.

i think there's more innovation in terms of production on blue banisters but after listening literally a million times and going back to chemtrails, i think COCC is the superior album. it's just sooooooooo well thought out and cohesive and makes sense as a WHOLE.

 

but i think blue banisters there are only CERTAIN songs that are miles ahead in terms of production and lyricism. i think lana has a lot of ideas right now and these two albums represent that and im excited for the future as always.

Lana's been going downhill for me since LFL. I only like a few songs on NFR, and COCC and BB are un-listenable to me, like nails on a chalkboard. I really wish I could get into her new stuff but I just cannot. 

not an unpopular opinion but you are seen and valid sir

(although i personally love her new stuff much more than LFL)

Blue Banisters would have made a much bigger impact if it wasn't for that halfassed CoCC release earlier that year.

 

I totally agree. But with Tulsa, Wild at Heart being included on Blue Banisters too, with better production. :true:

Chemtrails is such a waste. She could have gotten away with it better had it been a 5 song EP.

Guys, I made an Unpopular Opinions thread, so not Lana related. Please check it out and maybe post something 🖤

Yeah, after having some weeks with Blue Banisters, I must say that it went down in my rankings and I certainly enjoy Chemtrails Over the Country Club more as an album. White Dress, the title track, Not All Who Wander... :angie:

On the subject of Swan Song, I honestly think it's one of the best songs Lana's ever made. I will never understand why it's so disliked 


well for a start , during the chorus all i can hear is ‘it’ll be our swanson’ so now i can’t listen to it without picturing ron swanson
