Yeah I don’t want her to release in the same grammy cycle…she should wait for 3 more months.March 20, 2021 at 9:04 pm #1204147846This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 20, 2021 at 9:55 pm #1204147885This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 21, 2021 at 11:08 am #1204148790
I didn’t like the way she announced it. Honestly if you feel like the press are unjustly targeting you (meh, she’s not 100% blameless), address the matter seriously. The sarcasm in the “I will continue glamorizing domestic abuse and cultural appropriation” bla bla (idk the correct words) kinda irked me because this is not something for you to joke on. I get that she is free and wild at heart and whatever she wants but this wasn’t the move imoMarch 21, 2021 at 12:34 pm #1204148987
My favourite songs
White Dress, COCC, Wild at Heart, Dark but Just a Game, Yosemite.
In General it is a skipless album.March 21, 2021 at 12:58 pm #1204149016
Lana Del Rey + 85 on Metacritic = BARF!March 22, 2021 at 8:30 am #1204150623This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 22, 2021 at 8:32 am #1204150630
after listening to COTCC nonstop all weekend my new favorites are Yosemite, Wild At Heart, and Dance Till We Die. It gets better with each listen, I think it’s starting to become my favorite album of Lana’s.

I’ve been playing the album on a loop since it came out and haven’t grown one bit tired. On the contrary, with repeated listens I have truly come to realize and appreciate how strong the melodies and sonic vision of this album are, and what a masterful storyteller Lana del Rey is.
I hate to call an album a modern classic only days after its release, but I have no other way to put it. I have a strong hunch we’re witnessing a famous artist transforming into someone who will go down in history as one of the greats, and is hitting a creative peak that will hopefully last a while and give us a string of masterpieces like Joni Mitchell in the 70s or Prince in the 80s.March 22, 2021 at 9:08 am #1204150713
Here i come to give a negative opinion on the album, haha.
I’m quite shocked to be basically the first one to not really like it that much, during my first listen i gave it a 6.4 because it sounded so repetitive and unoriginal, the lyrics felt recycled and basic (what’s up with “candle in the wind”, change it up). Really did not like Wild At Heart, as i said, it sounds unoriginal, i know it has samples of previous songs, but it really does not sound like a new one either, it just sounds like Love Song, HTD and Hope. White Dress was my favorite by far during that first listen, it sounded perfect, the messy vocals, the autobiographic lyrics and topics, it felt like the most original and well thought song on the album.
After a few more listens i do quite like it, but not more than a 7/10, Not Those Who Wander Are Lost is one of my favorites, it’s very beautiful and sweet, White Dress is the best for me, Lana has this really great way of writing opening tracks, and the title track is the other one i really like, don’t get the love for Tulsa Jesus Freak, i guess it may be because it’s the most upbeat song on the album, but to me it’s basically Diet Mountain Dew, just boring, simple, unimpressive lyrics. Same thoughts on Wild At Heart, Yosemite had me hyped and it didn’t quite live up to the expectations, it’s good and cute, but it gets quite boring fast, For Free is sweet, but forgettable.
My problem with the album as a whole is that lyrically it has nothing new or exciting, even when Lana wrote about her daddies it felt like she had something to say, this time i don’t see originality, NFR! is what it is because it’s full of great lyrics, quotes and phrases (just the opening line sets you up to what the album has), but Chemtrails is too tamed and sonically unexciting, at this point i put it on the bottom 3 of Lana’s albums with Born To Die and Lust For Life.
Ultraviolence continues to be her all time best and no one can argue that with me, if you think differently i don’t care, Ultraviolence is heaven and hell.
