It's always interesting that some of my favorite records are ones I have the least to say much about. That goes for "Blonde", "Ziggy Stardust", and "Bitches Brew". Sometimes music just sounds so good that words feel inadequate. This goes for "Assume Form" as it does for the aforementioned masterpieces.
Favorite Songs: Into the Red / Where's the Catch / I'll Come Too
Lana returns with her familiar ethereal aesthetics, but this time with more contained and vulnerable songwriting. Unlike "Lust for Life," (which is also excellent) NFR does not overstay its welcome. While LfL fizzles after the 12th track, NFR consistently keeps my attention to the very end.
Favorite Songs: Mariners Apartment Complex / Fuck it I love you / How to Disappear / California / The Greatest
