Unpopular Lana Opinions

Recommended Posts

I'm not a fan of folk music or jazz or whatever it is 😂 BUT because I love Lana so much, songs I would have otherwise never gotten into, I've gotten into bc of her, like on COCC. Ugh 💖💖💖 Still hoping for a strong production for RCS but ye

heroin is her most powerful song

 

It's one of her most mysterious songs, I wish she wrote more "disturbing" lyrics like that.

One of my least fav songs she’s ever released- I listen to LFL pretty regularly but never to this song. I just find it so boring & lackluster.

 

I actually thought for a long time that Lust For Life was the album opener since I took Love out lol.

This is embarrassing. :toofloppy: Just say you don’t like folk music. Her recent music isn’t any more like Joni Mitchell than her old music was, in fact it’s actually less so. Joni Mitchell was never a folk singer. She was mostly an experimental jazz musician, if you could even put her in a box. In fact, Venice Bitch and Cruel World and Shades of Cool are way closer to Joni Mitchell’s music than anything on COTCC (except maybe Yosemite). I suggest you go listen to The Hissing of Summer Lawns, then go find an actual “folk musician” to hate on (there’s lots to choose from!) :kiss3: :byeh8rs2:

I've never actually listened to Joni so ig that comparison was wrong. But anyways my point still stands. I don't mind the album I just don't vibe with the folkier sound as much.

Idk if it's because i've been playing it so much, but the flaws of COCC are definitely starting to come out for me. Dark But Just a Game is very good, but it is rather dry.  I wish there was something more interesting about the production or the lyrics to make it really pop. 

Dance Till We Die...probably one of her least eventful songs ever until the bridge literally SAVES it.

At the moment I have no criticism for DBJAG, but I'm now wondering if it will follow the path Cherry did for me- best song ever for the first 3 months, so groovy and sexy, but then you realise the production really is off and lacking what would have made it a 10/10 song.

the only real criticism i have rn of DBJAG is that the verses sound like they were recorded with the p*per and the chorus doesn't and the lack of consistency is kinda annoying

I dropped DBJAG in my 4th listen and I'm going to blame Jack. The majority of his songs came with an expiration date. Can be days, weeks, months, or years. Rarely it's over a decade

I’ve hardly listened to COCC this week :(

 

I listened to the leak, but didn’t play it tooooo much (other than wild at heart)

 

After taking a little break from it, im just not itching to come back to any of these songs right now the same way I was her previous albums which is sad. 
 

think the leak and release hype might have got the best of me with how I rank it amongst her other albums

No because it sounds like Portishead and Portishead's music is timeless :agree:

But speaking of LFL - if I'd heard DBJAG and didn't know it was a COCC song, I would've easily believed it to be an LFL outtake. I feel like she's taken elements from each of her past albums for this one.


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

Definitely, and I do think dbjag will be timeless, or at least nostalgic in a good way, 10-20 years from now.

 

In some ways this album feels pretty close to BTD and I can't explain why, or maybe it's closer to AKA. the writing maybe.

I find myself coming back to White Dress, Wild at Heart and DBJAG but that’s it.

Tbh I liked COCC upon first listens but the songs that I have on repeat the last couple of days are Yosemite , White dress, TJF,  DBJAG and BUS .  I don't listen to the whole album from start to finish . I don't know maybe in some months that will change because I still like it as a whole . I had the same problem with NFR and the things were even worse because when I first listened to it when it got released I was so frustrated when I didn't like many songs on there . As time passed I started to appreciate it more but unfortunately It's one of my least favorites of hers even though I do enjoy more songs on the album that I did initially and that saddens me because I really wanted to like it :cryney:

Heroin is the best song of her career and maybe my fav song of all time. I will never forget the first time I heard the bass drop in the chorus  :lange:

 

Idk if this is an unpopular opinion but I just needed to share it
