    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.

    This is a an album that is growing on you. I think most of the songs refer to her pre-2012 life and she is inspired by specific incidents of her life at the time.

    The gays won’t like Chemtrails because it’s (mostly) not dramatic.

    Ah yes, The Gays, those incurable Drama Queens.

    I think she’s always trying new things and genres. She’s not putting the same thing over and over again.

    I didn’t like the album. White Dress and Tulsa Jesus Freak, as well as the closing track are probably stand out songs but overall it’s not the kind of exciting music Lana is capable of making. I found it somewhat interesting lyrically, but the musicality was bland and disappointing, far from the glorious Ultraviolence or even NFR! days.

    FYC | Best music this season:

    Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams
    St. Vincent - Daddy's Home
    Jazmine Sullivan - Heaux Tales
    Tyler, The Creator - Call Me If You Get Lost

    Never got the hype for Ultraviolence. It’s so overdone and overproduced. Honeymoon is so much better.

    Unlikely to happen, but I’d like for her to give BTD sound another try. Summertime Sadness did really become a hit in the U.S. But I don’t think she’s chasing commercial success at this point. And in any case it’s just a shame that she’s forced to compete in the pop categories.

    She is not a pop star. She had pop crossover early in her career, but right now she’s really not a popstar and unfair for her to compete there with the heavy hitters.

    I’m sorry, but when you do pop, you compete in pop and not because you’re a “heavy hitter.” Lana’s music is clearly pop genre, so, what’s the point here?

    If your claim is any valid, that means Rina, Charli, Jessie Ware, and other non-heavy-hitter pop singers should compete in other countries i.e. GENRE FRAUD.

    Nothing on Chemtrails is pop ..literally nothing and it’s very obvious that pop voters look for pop culture + radio hits when they vote in pop so it’s pretty weird to have Lana compete in pop when she’s an alternative artist through and through.

    Had you said “Folk” or “Americana,” I’d say fine. Chemtrails is not “Alternative.” You can’t have this competing with Bjork and David Byrne.

    Will Lana be able to write a better opening than NFR!’s first two verses? I don’t think.
