i think by the time widespread economic infrastructure can afford electric tank production we'll have moved past using tanks in warfare



we'll be at the point where the army just zoops! around with armor piercing shells shot by Amazon drones

It's really odd to me that people complain about the album being slow and stacked with piano ballads, but also want to dismiss it as being just a conventional pop album "catering to the masses".

Conventional pop albums usually have way too many shitty piano ballads to fill in the large space between their few singles and they are also usually the worst part so

"Conventional pop albums usually have way too many shitty piano ballads"



I'd be surprised if most massively successful pop albums released in the last 10 years are more than 50% slow piano torch songs (maybe someone like Adele), but I could be wrong. Born to Die seems far more like a conventional run at the charts (it just also happens to have some classic timeless songs on it). Regardless, these might be piano ballads, but they aren't shitty songs.

" just bleached beige boredom"



Well, I hear lots of classic, restrained songs with beautiful melodies that flow, with a distinctive viewpoint. I think her voice is unique, and she's effortlessly expressive. Yeah, I get you can say lyrically and thematically it's similar to previous work, and that it's a constructed persona, but some artists have been pulling the same schtick for 20 years and they're still acclaimed (Tom Waits springs to mind).

I guess she just doesn't connect to everyone. Which would be very unrealistic to expect anyway. Because the feeling she flawlessly invokes in me, time and time again, is indeed boredom.

I still have 'Video Games' rated a 5, sounded quite unique and catchy but she had just the one good idea



That's better than a lot of us sure, but no one is going to convince me she had any more ideas beyond that one song blueprint

Because this is one of the only active threads currently (the other being Tool). That's why I'm here at least.

Why are we here? Partly because this is one of the most critically well received albums of the year (look away now, it’ll feature in a lot of top 100 of the decade lists) and is in a mainstream genre that should appeal to most to some degree. To not listen to this is more a statement than to try it.



Also always fun to see who’s riding the hype train and who isn’t for any ‘big release’.
