    Knowing how often I disagree with you I kind of predicted that you’d feel this way. I listen to Born to Die on a regular basis. For me, it’s only the last few tracks that don’t work. You used to speak about how you weren’t exactly the target demographic of Gossip Girl. I wonder if the same couldn’t be said for Born to Die and Artpop.

    It should have been “Ready To Die” VS “Born To Die”. THAT’s a matchup.
