BRAIN: so did you listen to the new Lana Del Ray album?
MARIE: it didn’t grab me as much as the first one
MARIE: Born to Die is clearly the best
MARIE: I think the new one and the second one are about on par for me
BRAIN: I think Ultraviolence has a slightly different feel
MARIE: yeah, I’d agree… it feels less distinctly her style, to me
BRAIN: I don’t want her to go the way of Brett Easton Ellis and just become monotonous and irrelevant
BRAIN: I remember when Madonna was reinventing herself around the time of Dick Tracy
BRAIN: that was awkward
MARIE: Hard to imagine LDR reinventing herself
MARIE: there doesn’t seem to be a lot of there there
BRAIN: it would need an entirely new creative team
BRAIN: how do you reinvent a concept without rewriting it entirely?
MARIE: I mean, you could attempt character development
BRAIN: Lana Del Reyâ€¦ gets a sidekick!
MARIE: Scrappy Doo!
