Lana Del Rey creates another masterpiece Jam out to “Norman F***ing Rockwell!”

The foliage of autumn has appeared, the air finally feels crisp and pumpkin spice everything is available at your favorite coffee shops. Along with the fall season came a new album from Lana Del Rey that is best to listen to around the house, in your car or when you are simply enjoying your own company. 

Two months after its release, “Norman F***ing Rockwell!” is still receiving much praise. According to iTunes Charts, it remains within the top 100 played albums, placing at #77 as of Tuesday. Just yesterday, the album was nominated for a 2020 Grammy award for Album of the Year.

All 13 tracks contain titles that highlight her truth and honesty. Her lyrical focal points include love, insanity, California and transparency.  

The first stanza on the first track, which is also the title track of the album, shares honest thoughts. 

“You’re fun and you’re wild // But you don’t know the half of the s*** that you put me through // Your poetry’s bad and you blame the news // But I can’t change that, and I can’t change your mood.”

On the album’s second track “Mariners Apartment Complex,” Del Rey sings, “Don’t look too far, right where you are, that’s where I am.” This a great way to describe the intimate and personal feelings that come with this album. 

Del Rey sheds light on how deep her love goes and how in tune she is with her emotions. She sings about how she, “loves that man, like nobody else can” in “How to Disappear.” 

On “Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me to Have,” a truthful and reflective Del Rey compares herself to American poet Sylvia Plath. She sings about walking around in her nightgown and using blood as ink whenever her pen runs out. 

Her dark and risky thoughts are also on the track before, “Happiness Is a Butterfly.” She sings “If he’s a serial killer, then what’s the worst that can happen to a girl who’s already hurt?” Raw emotion and thought processes like these are on every track.

It is no surprise that many of her fans continue to rave about the album and tweet things like @watsonthanks’s comment, “Sorry I missed your call, I was facedown in a gutter thinking about how Norman f******g rockwell is one of lana’s strongest albums yet.”
