      • I'll never understand people who listen to illegal leaks. Isn't it better to wait a few more days and actually support the artists? I can't wait to listen to the album as I absolutely love all of the singles.
        Haven't been early since '88

        • Apparently Lana shouted at workers at Target for putting the album on sale early.

            • Some of the songs are quite old. Dealer, Thunder, Cherry Blossom and Nectar of The Gods have been online for years. I’ve heard they have updated production on the album though.

              Apparently Black Bathing Suit is THAT TRACK.

              Im just going to wait until Friday. I don’t know how people can be bothered to scroll through the internet to find leaks which are usually LQ.

              • It’s good to know it’ll actually be released as planned (sort of).

                Looking forward to it, I quite like the songs released so far

                • I’ll wait for Friday. I like to be in the mood for listening to her nee albums. I have to set aside time like on a journey where I won’t be interrupted or I put the vinyl on and really take it all in.

                      that’s fake, confirmed by the kid who spread the rumor.

                      I’m excited to hear the album, have been resisting the leaks (and too lazy to find them), but so far I liked everything.

                        Even if it wasn't fake, she had every right to yell at people who sell the album before it's street date

                          Yeah, my expectations going into this are also as low as never before for a Lana album, but I still hope it will click for me.

                          • 'Norm ******* Rockwell' and 'Chemtrails' were mostly produced by Jack Antonoff, while he is not involved on 'Blue Banisters' at all. Can we expect a different sound?

                            • theMathematician ^ I think so, at least in some songs (Dealer for example), but overall she’s not the BTD Lana anymore and she seems done with pop stardom (as seen in the subject matter on Chemtrails and her deactivating social media), so I reckon she’s not going to make bops anymore. For me she’s getting better and better.

                              True, but I mean if sth like that happened, her label/management has every right to get involved, I doubt she herself would go to a random Target to yell at employees who have nothing to do it with it

                                It's a rare case of commercial and critical response being polar opposite. Yesterday, I watched a video of her albums' chart performance on the Billboard 200, and while it's normal that the more current albums chart higher than older works, it never took long before her 'Born To Die' album outcharted each more recent release. At the same time, it's her worst reviews album by the critics, while her last two albums are her first two to receive 80+/100 ratings on Metacritic.
                                I loved the hip hop-influenced pop sound she presented on 'Born To Die', 'Lust For Life' and, at least to some extent, on 'Honeymoon'. I agree that she seems to move away from an overall mainstream-friendly sound that made her breakthrough in the first place. Not sure how much of her initial love for hip hop and the Hollywood lifestyle mentioned in her earlier works was really her though...

                                • Chances are high that this will be on par with the last album… which wasn’t her best but not her worst either.

                                      1. Actually it’s quite common for alternative artists, just look at Bjork, PJ Harvey or Fiona Apple - not exactly slaying singles charts and played on the radio, but huge critical acclaim.

                                      2. She can love the genre but not make the same kind of music after 10 years and 7 albums. Besides, the interlude
                                      on this album has a fire beat, you can hear it at the end of the Arcadia video

                                      • Listened to the previews on Itunes.

                                        Beautiful, Violets for Roses, Thunder and Nectar of the Gods all stand out among the new ones So beautiful!

                                        Dealer is... a choice. Curious to listen to that in full.

                                        If you lie down with me & Wildflower Wildfire might be the songs I enjoyed less.

                                        The interlude has no connection to anything else on the album, weird that it's even there

                                        Black Bathing Suit also sounded very interesting. Might be the song with the "most" production there.

                                              The music video is freakin‘ weird though. Have you seen how she‘s looking into the cameras while painting them banisters blue?
