Happy birthday to this gorgeous piece of artistry!! It gave us some of my very fav Lana songs, like HM, TLY, Freak, Art Deco, Salvatore & Blackest Day. HM I did you dirty when I ignored you upon initial release, but rediscovered it while I was teaching in Italy for three months and I will forever associate it with wandering the Uffizi and looking at art from hundreds of years ago. I love when Lana works in the realm of jazz and this is the apex. Long love Honeymoon!

Happy birthday, Honeymoon! What a beautiful body of work you are. Honeymoon was the first Lana album I really sat down and listened to in full, and it completely blew me away. I truly believe it's one of Lana's best. It somehow manages to be completely ahead of it's time while being an ode to an almost 60s-esque sort of sound space. My favorites are Swan Song, Honeymoon and Terrance Loves You.

Happy birthday, Honeymoon! I cannot believe it’s been 6 years since its release —— what a timeless record with some of Lana’s most creative and impressionistic writing. I truly believe Lana tapped a new creative vein with Honeymoon that made for a collection of songs that served as a culmination of her life and career in the spotlight. The conduit between anxiety and glamour that underlies this record is one of Lana’s many creative identities and she challenges that identity so confidently but coolly on this record. The title track is one of my favourite songs of all time, and the soundscaping on the entire record is so retro, luxe, and dreamy. I will never forget how songs like Honeymoon and Terrence Loves You made me feel upon first listen. Happy birthday to a masterpiece that is emblematic of Lana turning all the way inward and capturing her essence beautifully. <3

Happy birthday to one of my favorite albums of all time. Such a special record. Still her best work imo. The songs, the lyrics, the photoshoot. Everything was so beautiful. Honeymoon, her best title track (and most underrated). Other masterpieces like Terrence Loves You. The absolutely heavenly final two minutes of GKIT. The sampling of HBTB in Swan Song. The lush, beauty of the entire record. An album that has really, deeply inspired me over the years. I'll never forget listening to the recordings from urban outfitters. The iconic shoplifting beeps and other random noises. 

 

Also, happy birthday to her most beautiful vinyl pressing. That cherry jolly rancher, translucent red is so fucking gorgeous :defeated:

Six years later and 24 is still jaw dropping and chilling. The best song on this record. I will fight for her until the day I die. What a defining record. Nothing bad about it (except swan song)

 

24 is such a great & underrated song! (as well as swan song :slayty:)

Happy birthday, Honeymoon! I love listening to Honeymoon on an early spring or fall afternoon, where an endless summer feels like it's about to begin or come to a close. :oprah3:

 

Her most cinematic, cohesive and unique record to this day. Freak, Terrence Loves You, Swan Song, Honeymoon, High by the Beach, The Blackest Day are amongst her greatest work.  :oprah:

“Swan Song. It’s on my album Honeymoon. It’s the antithesis of hopefulness. It’s about trying to find beauty in giving up. If I had my way, I would continue to persist in all areas of my life, but it can be quite challenging because I can be too trusting too soon.":sadcore2:

It's impossible to rank this album. I've had so many special moments with each and every song. Even 24 - the last minute & a half is GODLY. This album is truly her magnum opus  :oprah:
