    Coherently channeling R&B, techno, disco and rock music as a pop artist while discussing sex, drugs, lust, God, fame and creativity, Lady Gaga has offered fans her most sonically and lyrically diverse album to date.

    She doesn’t do anything wildly original with them [musical genres], but she has fun.

    The concept is artful and logical, yet ARTPOP never insinuates or settles in the subconscious; it always assaults, determined to make an impression even when all it has to say is that it doesn't have much to say.

    It's no instant classic, then, but neither is it the calamity that some have foreseen, being a typically mixed Gaga outing with some ludicrous highs, questionable digressions (Jewels 'N' Drugs, in which three rappers add little to the mix; or Donatella, a charmless ode to the equally charmless Versace supremo) and plenty of not-unpleasant filler.

    ARTPOP wants to hide that it doesn’t have much to say.

    This is two albums in a row now that were basically a bit boring, and she needs to sort it out soonish please.

    Throughout ARTPOP signifier upon signifier is piled on top of sometimes brilliant melodies, creating enough room for breathless readings of Gaga’s ‘art’ certainly, but failing on the more basic level as engaging pop music.

    This record is amazing. I can't stand the mixed or negative reviews this album gets when compared to the artistical "crap" that was releasedThis record is amazing. I can't stand the mixed or negative reviews this album gets when compared to the artistical "crap" that was released by Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus or anybody else. The entire album is written, (co-)produced and "done" by the artist not by a dozen of different songwriters or producers per track.

    ARTPOP is a truely epic pop release this year, far beyond every other release by a "high class artist".

The tracks are all uniques, from the effervescent MANiCURE to exciting Gypsy, all with wonderful lyrics and the unique and booming voice of Gaga. Was a shame that it has flopped, I really loved this album, one of the best of 2013. Expand

    Um Álbum diferenciado dos anteriores da cantora, com essa pegada forte eletrônica, que é pouco mesclado as músicas. Melhores faixas MANICUREUm Álbum diferenciado dos anteriores da cantora, com essa pegada forte eletrônica, que é pouco mesclado as músicas. Melhores faixas MANICURE e DO WHAT U WANT, a primeira devia ter sido single, outras que não deixam de ser boas é SWINE, VENUS, FASHION!, AURA , G.U.Y e claro ARTPOP. o restante seria melhor se tivesse sido descartado.

No matter how hard I tried to like this record, I couldn't atThere's something that is truly fascinating with Lady GaGa: her flawed honesty. No matter how hard I tried to like this record, I couldn't at the exception of the exquisite (and by that I mean, stunning) Gypsy, and the 80s oriented Applause. Yes, some of the hooks are insane: I'm thinking about Aura, Venus (which is more an experimental attempt, than an actual song in my opinion) Do What You Want, etc. ARTPOP feels like an experimental rush, but doesn't feel like an actual end product. It really feels like GaGa wanted to stick so much to her theme, that she actually forgot about the music... In that sense, it feels forced, and not honest. Sticking to the ambivalence reigning between art and pop didn't do her any service: it actually made her album feel unsure, and definitely not finished... It really feels to me, like every song is not really certain of its direction. The production is interesting, that's for sure, I commend DJ White Shadow, Zedd and Madeon for the beats, but I really can't help but wonder why anybody let Venus get on the ''final'' product. Yes, Gaga produced it, but she didn't finish it. I feel there's something missing there. I can't stop thinking about the amazing vocals on Gypsy though. Really feels like the most honest song on the album, and the most beautiful one. I do not know who GaGa was trying to convince, especially by trying to make us believe that this album was done 1 year ago, when it definitely wasn't... Feels like a lot of songs were written at the last minute, or finished at the last minute. Expand
