It is a futile discussion, though.

I'm just pretty sure that if this album released next year is the first one under the name Lana Del Rey, then it is Lana Del Rey's debut album. No biggie.

Let's change the subject, and talk about Scumbo's aversion to women with big lips.

After spending a little while reading about Del Rey in August when she was blowing up Hipster Runoff, I decided to try not paying attention to the conscious design of the aesthetic and just enjoy the music. But things like slapping an iMovie Super 8 film grain effect on her Premises video performance linked upthread are bugging me. I'm gonna tune her out if she ends up going for 60s!!!!!!!!! at the same turbo mach speed that Lady Gaga goes with WEIRD!!!!!!

all that said, I really like the tension in the verses of Blue Jeans.

So if, for example, Lady Gaga decided to release her next album under her real name then you would consider that her debut album? Is that what you're saying? Because I don't agree. The only difference with Elizabeth Grant / Lana Del Rey is that nobody had ever heard of Elizabeth Grant because her debut album under that name bombed and she is now releasing a new album under a different name. It's still the same person.

Look, I'm not criticizing the name and image change. Obviously it was a smart move on the part of her management because it is creating publicity for her. But in this day and age when, as you said, everyone can google everything, they can't possibly expect to keep her previous recordings a secret. Trying to build up this air of mystery around her and calling this a 'debut' album is just asking for people to dig into her past.

I hadn't heard anything about her until I read a mention of her either in the Oprah magazine or Marie Claire, or something dumb like that. Definitely wasn't on a music blog or anything. I checked out a song or two on Spotify and didn't really think much of her.

But I just listened to Video Games in this thread, and wow, I really liked it. I think her voice could get irritating really fast, so I'll have to like the songs a lot to get through a whole album.

Am definitely curious to hear the album when it's out.

I find the idea of not questioning her as a serious artist because the music is good a bit unsettling. I think a lot of the situation is totally bull shit of the highest degree. However, if the music's good, that's great. I just don't like the idea of ignoring the fact that she seems to be completely a commercial product, created to sell records.

I think in instances like this it's possible to have two debut albums. He'll, I'd be willing to say Fleetwood Mac, for example, have two. When a sound change is significant enough to warrant the situation.

January 30th.

By changing the lyric from "Let me fuck you hard in the pouring rain" to "Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain" it immediately switches from one of the biggest boner-inducing lines in pop music history to sounding like something off of Fearless. That English language, it's a crazy thing.

Lana Del Rey is slightly derivative because she always reminds me of.....what was it called again.....

I would stick my head in an oven just to be given the chance to hear her cough through a walkie talkie.
