I’ve had “Daddy, I miss them… I’m in the mouuuuuuunnnnntainnnnnsssss!” stuck in my head all day. Along with “That’s how the liiiight gets in…”
 
I can't put my finger on it, but in my couple of rushed listens I've done of this the ballads feel melodically akin to 90s Kate Bush. I kept almost singing Top of the City at points in Kintsugi particularly - not sure why, but just an observation, and definitely a compliment.
 
I’m afraid Candy Necklace fits really well between the two interludes dd. This is definitely her best album for me, aside from Norman.
 
The gigwise review is 10/10. It’s a very popjustice style review of the way labels just press play on a tinny speak while the journos eat popcorn and then go off and write their reviews… almost sounds like a quiet quitting paradox of the whole review game.

I feel like this has been her narrative for the last four albums ddd, she believes the critics hate her, but then she gets critical acclaim...

Yeah, is this not what spawned Question For The Culture? Dd

I can understand feeling like that for her first few campaigns, but she’s never gotten more adoration and acclaim than she has been getting for the last near decade, so it’s always funny to see her be like, “when will EYE be cherished and adored and unquestioned???” like she’s not already at that point.

Exactly ddd. She still seems to be stuck in the Born to Die-era when it comes to her own view on her relationship with the public and industry it seems dd.

From what I've read online this album truly seems to be her most honest and darkest album yet lyrically? I'm very excited to listen.
 
It’s wild recalling the how critics treated her in the early days to now seeing the Guardian write “Pop’s new generation seems to look to her as a guiding light, perhaps more than any other star; her impact on culture is outsized”.

I feel like a proud mum.
It is funny how I can see her influence on many younger artists, but no one seems to do it as well as Lana. She's truly in a class all her own.
