Critic Reviews (56)

Norman Fucking Rockwell! celebrates the sinister melancholy with which she gained fame in the old-fashioned way; Lana sings about life as a modern tragedy full of deceit and unfulfilled desires under the California sun.

So-So I’ve been a dedicated fan of hers since the beginning. Before she was famous. It seems she has lost her ability to make songs catchy and unique. The lyrics aren’t as relatable and chilling as they used to be. Beautiful voice as always. Missing her National Anthem period.
