I was flying when Star Girl with Lana Del Rey came on. It is so spacey... Damn! Loved it so much.
The whole album has such a good atmosphere. Some groove here and there daaamn.

Lana should work with the same team of producers for her next studio effort .
cdschart wrote:BBTM is miles better but I can still appreciate this album. I don't understand how most of y'all hate Rockin' though. Stargirl and Reminder are the only ones that should've been cut.
My favorites at the moment are I Feel It Coming, Six Feet Under, Party Monster, and Die For You.
Hermes wrote:The album is definitely in my top 3 of the year.
Party Monster is my clear favorite, but there are so many standouts : Six Feet Under, Reminder, Rockin, Starboy, I Feel It Coming, Secrets, Sidewalks, A Lonely Night, True Colors, Ordinary Life, Nothing Without You, Stargirl, etc... I just have to mention them all due to their quality !
hellohello wrote:I love this album. She really excelled with the production and the vocals. I think she has been taking notes from the Neo-Soul acts like D'Angelo and Lauryn Hill, her sis (obviously), Aaliyah (maybe), Minnie Riperton (maybe), Janet Jackson (maybe) and the PBR&B genre. Every track is smooth and compliment each other really well. Solange has shown how unique she is with this album.

It really is a perfect body of work.
It reminds me of "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" a lot...

I can't wait to fully digest this album lyrically, there's so much poetry in there. Cranes in the Sky is the track that's really stood out to me most so far. It contains such a creative and fitting metaphor for depression, while the verses create such a heartbreaking portrayal of the things we'll do to try and fill that void in our lives. Mathew and especially Tina's interludes are particularly powerful as well.
The visuals for the two singles are stunning, agree that the aesthetics are so on point.
As for people pitting Solange and Beyoncé against each other, that's ridiculous. Both sisters would hate it. They're both extremely creative individuals who touch on similar subjects due to having the same upbringing. But they're individuals with different personalities and an array of talents.
Taurus wrote:She definitely shows vision on this album. I definitely hold firm to my belief that its very akin to music from D-Angelo, maybe Voodoo era? Instrumentally its very relaxing. I really like it so far but I cant lie and say I miss the pop melodies that were on True. True was absolutely perfect. This album is a expansive experience. You really need to give it time. Its almost like a movie how it plays. I will say that this is her strongest ALBUM. Its cohesive in feel, sound and aesthetic. She really put together something solid. I miss True though Im sorry

you're seriously missing out on Sex With God Pose is kinda trashy I'll admit, and Goodnight Gotham is nothing but an interludeDnBLover wrote:If Anti was 4 tracks shorter (ok, 3... Finish with LOTB), it would be a modern day urban masterpiece, and would have won in any other year where Lemonade was not up for competition. Funnily enough, I've never played any of Anti's deluxe tracks.
If we exclude the visuals, I would rank Solange #1. Her album is the best.
