Re: Lady Gaga's "Artpop" release info (its complicated)

my favorite song on the album (produced by Rick Rubin)

Also Mary Jane Holland & Swine.

I'd say this album is more for fans of EDM & Trap.

Somethings just feels off. The Fame And The Fame Monsters had a higher selections of songs that stood out to me. Artpop has a couple and Born This Way had "Judas" which stood out quite a bit and a couple others.

Not sure what changed so much over the last couple albums.

Very underwhelmed by the new album just like I was for BTW.
At least there is a nice pic of her bum in the CD booklet...

She still has interesting ideas. The problem is she's not marrying those ideas to strong songs.

I listened to the album again and turned it off at song 10 (I had previously heard the whole thing). It feels like a slog to me. This has been an incredible year for music, and I suspect that Artpop will be quickly forgotten in the midst of it all.

Listened to it a few times and it's sort of meh IMO. You know its bad when it's 2013 and the catchiest tune on your album is an R. Kelly duet.

Re: Lady Gaga's "Artpop" release info (its complicated)

After a few more listens I like the first few songs but then it falls off IMO. I like it more than Born This Way, but that's not saying much.

Funny how opinions differ... for me the last four songs are the strongest on the album.

I think it's because she is already married to the night.

So it seems Artpop has flopped? Gaga overload/ backlash in full effect.

Re: Lady Gaga's "Artpop" release info (its complicated)

I thought Born This Way was absolutely terrible. Artpop, after a few listens, is certainly better. Her ship has sailed, though. I don't know how she could reinvent herself since she's so out there, but I think her shtick is just getting old and people aren't embracing generic pop like they have after so many years.

On the way home from work I saw a middle-aged soccer mom with a license plate that said "<3 GAGAA" and a 'Little Monster' (what she calls her fans) sticker on her back window. So, she does have some fans left.

I don't think it's Backlash, it's just general disinterest for what is a really bland album.

Why is pitchfork even running this story? Shouldn't they use the time and space to gush over some pretentious shit no one has ever heard of before?

Amazon is currently selling both the CD and MP3 versions of this one for $6.99.

Makes me glad I held off on buying it.

Honestly, I think she should do an "unplugged" album. Real instruments, not beats.

It would be pretty awesome. Did you see her performance from last week's SNL? Most of that was acoustic.

She has a duet album with Tony Bennett coming out soon.

Musically she's capable of much more than the dance pop she's famous for, but she seems to save that for live performances. With acts like Lorde topping the charts these days and the continued success of people like Adele, it might be time for Gaga to start showcasing more of this diversity on her albums.
