Listened to the first 10 seconds got bored and turned it off. Does it get better?

It's not a bad song. I do agree it's too minimalistic and Wild-at-Heart sounding to be a great standalone track. But whatever. There's 8 more songs we haven't heard yet (well, maybe less if you heard the leaks), and Solar Power is great.

Each second is progressively more boring than the one before, imagine when you start the third minute.

Not in Jack's world. The lyrics are quite nice tho, I'd suggest you going to Genius and read them as a poem.

I’ve defended Jack’s vocal production in the past (even on songs like This Is Me Trying) but it severely harms this song I think because it has no percussion, so this ballad that should be grand and emotional ends up feeling flat and unexpressive.

This has really grown on me. It's giving me a whole quarter life crisis :weeps:

No, I got a notification on my phone and I struggled to listen more than 1 minute. I skipped to middle and end and it's basically a cheap Lana Del Rey imitation. Absolute failure. At least Wild at Heart was upbeat at the end and 100x better.

 

Poor Lana clones, they think they are doing something good (tribute?) but Lana already did everything better with a more mature sound :cm:

Why come in here then? There’s a Lana base somewhere else if you want to talk about her.

Gurl, go away. The same melody is Jack's fault anyways

This song has more lyrical depth to it than 98% of Lana songs but you are entitled to your wrong opinion. Your post is definitely flamebait so I suggest you stop now and go back to the Lana base.

Critics disagree, Stoned got zero critical acclaim so far, and yet you here again with your "lyrical depth", when no one is agreeing with you. :cm:

Let's ignore this topic with incorrect opinions from both sides and look at the stats:

 

“Stoned at the Nail Salon” — Spotify Update:

 

Partial: 780,427 

Day 1: 1,338,009

Day 2: 1,298,693

 

Total: 3,417,129

 

Very stable, if Lorde got push like Cam*la, she would get more streams than her :gaygacat1:

How do you measure acclaim for a single? Tell me sis :rip: I’ve read a couple of articles that have drawn comparisons to Lana from the production and that seems to be the only major thing marring those reviews. I’ve read some really positive coverage as well from the likes of Rolling Stones praising the songwriting especially. Just because there is a legion of Lana fans on here saying otherwise doesn’t mean I’ll change my stance on this. 
 

I’m just listening to Wild at Heart’s lyrics again and the cliched lyrics are not for me. Just hearing her mention Calabasas alone :rip: The wild at heart trope is overdone and overused in popular culture too. I can go on and dissect many of Lana’s lyrics but that’s not the point. You can criticise the production (which is really Jack’s fault) of Stoned but to come for its lyrics is questionable. This is some of Lorde’s most mature and revelatory writing so far.

Lyrics are strong, but saying they are better than 98% of Lana Del Rey's songs is a total reach, she is very acclaimed, even more than Lorde, her lyrics are praised by many legends and critics. Just because you think otherwise doesn't mean it's a fact :rip: Maybe you lived under a rock when Pitchfork named Lana the next best American songwriter or LA Times called her the best lyricist of our time and so on, but who knows

Anyways...
OT: a really nice ballad from miss Ella :jamming:

Gurl let’s just ban Lana’s name from here because we’re really never going to see eye to eye on this. And there are definitely better writers outside of the zeitgeist who can write better than both Ella and Lana so I wouldn’t take those PR’d articles seriously :deadbanana: I do however think Happiness is a butterfly is one of the best songs lyrically made. 

 

Chile I’m annoyed this controversy overshadowed this song’s potential.

Sure honey, it's hard to be a stan of both women. When Lana gets attacked in Lorde's threads, I become defensive of her, and when Lorde is trashed in Lana's threads, it's the other way around
