This album is amazing! I can't wait for a proper HQ version. It's a true Lana Del Rey record.

From my first couple of listens the ones that really stand out are;

Lust For Life
Summer Bummer
In My Feelings
God Bless America
Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems

The whole thing is great though.

Just as i expected it's her worst record, definitely. It lacks inspiration, some songs are just there on the album being basic. I'm quite disappointed. I really love some of the tracks though. Cherry, 13 beaches and White Mustang are everything. Especially Cherry, which might be one of her best.

The album started quite good(not including Love), but after Coachella everything went downhill. God Bless America is one of her worst tracks ever, absolutely boring. The only great tracks from the other half of the album is When The World Was At War We Kept Dancing and Heroin. Change also has potential, verses are so freaking beautiful but chorus is annoying as phuck. Also don't understand the love for Get Free, chorus is quite good but other than that part the song is totally uninteresting. Featurings are nice but damn, so uneventful. I understand emotions are the main thing in those two, but i feel 0 of em.

I don't know why i feel like she had no inspiration for this album. It's like she wanted to record something like Born To Die. I'm quite sure people will like this, but oh Lana, how you let me down :cry:

Best tracks: Cherry, 13 Beaches, White Mustang, Summer Bummer, Heroin.

Imma keep playing the album with hope it will grow on me.
Ultraviolence remains her best record. And i doubt that she could top that.
Pleasure over matter.

Anyone has an idea where we can buy this physically tomorrow?

Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Just saw RaFanatic's review. Can't imagine I'll like this when even he says this is her worst record, but I'll stream it later. Summer Bummer is my jam.

Listened to it twice, I see very little resemblance to BTD, if I had to compare it to sth, it would be Honeymoon. But I already feel it's better. The songs will need repeated listens to stand out, there's quite a lot of them

Sad to see Get Free is not a Major Lazer cover, but happy that she ditched the cover-closing track tradition

Totally disagree i think this is her second best album after Born to Die, Cherry and 13 beaches are amazing.

13 Beaches should have been lead single and she should have promoted this would have slayed.

I liked "Born To Die", so I will probably check this out.

After "Ultraviolence", I didn't even bother to buy or listen to "Honeymoon".

On my second listen... it's still underwhelming. I feel like it lacks some Inspiration... or direction. I definitely don't feel the lust for life after listening to this Album.

I hope it will change tho

Honeymoon >>>

I think the problem with Honeymoon was that it lacked inspiration. This album is like a much better version of Honeymoon. I think it'll match BTD and UV for me after a few listens.

I am ADDICTED to Summer Bummer. Might be my fave lana track ever.

I can't with people ignoring / not listening to Honeymoon or saying it's a bad album :cry:
It's probably the best and most cohesive album she's ever done. It's hauntingly beautiful.

It's a magical album to me.

Can't wait to listen to Lust for Life tomorrow.

my problem with Honeymoon was mainly the weird murky production, as if she's singing through a closed door + some of the songs were just meh. fortunately it gave birth to her magnum opus Swan Song so I'm ok with it

I don't know how I feel about this album yet. I do agree with people saying that it doesn't really give me the "lust for life", I expected more songs like Love (not in terms of tempo, but overall mood and message). that was such a strong lead into the era
