West Coast alone is literally Lana at her best, the dreamy tone to her singing, the drop to the chorus, when it picks up again for the verse etc and the best part is, the album is full of things like that even if some parts of it are so noisy it tires me out. Still one of my fave albums tho jj2

Everything about this album is amazing. The lyrics are poetic without becoming cheesy, her vocals are so raw and ethereal without becoming grating, and the production is so rich that each song immediately grabs you and yet years later I'm still noticing small things I never picked up on before.

If I had to say the highlights though?

  • all the little guitar licks and riffs scattered throughout the underrated masterpiece Sad Girl
  • the way the epic production of tracks like Ultraviolence, Money Power Glory, and Old Money naturally build off the sound that made her famous without ever feeling contrived or reductive
  • every second of her vocal performance on Brooklyn Baby, the fact that you can literally hear her smiling as the song goes on
  • the complete and utter sonic shock West Coast delivered when it dropped, both a perfect taste of the album and one of her bet songs and let everyone know right away we were not gonna be dealing with the same Lana we met in Video Games
  • Shades Of Cool's shamelessly intricate structure
  • the explosion of drums in that first chorus of Black Beauty
  • when she samples the "lay me down tonight" refrain of Fucked My Way Up in Ultraviolence, a full 7 tracks before we even hear the song it comes from
  • Guns and Roses' entire existence as Burning Desire's long lost B-Side
  • the effortless aesthetic and sonic perfection

 

Need I continue?
