Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell!

After two albums that were not bad, but very saturated and mediocre, Lana Del Rey returns with a sophisticated and mature pop album. Her singing has never been better and the production is very engaging and layered. It doesn't have the immediate hits that Born To Die and Ultraviolence had, but Norman Fucking Rockwell is, across all 14 tracks, a consistent and very progressive album for Lana's musical aesthetics. Whoever tagged this as "psychedelic rock" and "folk rock" is just outright wrong though.

fav tracks: Venice Bitch, Cinnamon Girl (standout), California

this album is really good though. so y’all could just give it 60-70s to compensate for the biased 100s. 80-85 is the score NFR deserves.

Juliano, a 85 UR means it's the best album of the year, and that's far from true

I don't feel a 80+ (considering a 85 of these recent years, we have titanic rising or twin fantasy, she is clearly not at the same level !).

I think a 80-82 is where this will settle. Not too high but still a turning point in her career. The positive reviews still come up. Unfortunately, she has to compete with Tool and their fans are dedicated af.

Both you and Pitchfork think this is a percent above TPAB lol

Pitchfork is absolutely insane for that review. 10x worse than anything else they've put out in the last 5 years. Pitchfork is the CNN of music
