I love every song, I think it's her best album so far!
Jennifer Cannon
This is a great CD to play in the car, although it makes me want to dance while I'm driving.
TheMysteriousGopher
Many of the songs just didn't feel that catchy and mind-blowing like her previous albums.

I've gotta say, I'm getting a little sick of this "hate on Lady Gaga" bandwagon that seems to be all the rage right now. Sure, I had my doubts going into this album, as Applause didn't really hit me over the head the way I wanted it to, but Gaga has completely won me over with this album. I can't say I was knocked over on the first listen, but when Artpop clicked with me, it clicked big time. And now, it might just be my favorite album she's released. As time goes by, we'll see how that holds up. For now, it's sounding better with every listen.

1. Aura - The album kicks off with what almost sounds like an extended intro. The vocal delivery isn't so much singing as it is spitting the lyrics with the type of full-on theatricality and bizzaro-ness we expect from Gaga. It leaves you want just a bit more, which is always a good thing. 9/10

2. Venus - This is the album at its most self-referential campiness. I realized from the beginning that this is not going to resonate with all fans, in particular those who want their music a little more "serious." But really who the hell cares when a track is as fun and interesting as this. A perfect pop song, though I'd advise against making it a single. 10/10

3. G.U.Y. - Of the three tracks so far, this sounds the most like a classic Gaga dance track. It definitely shares pieces of past classics like Bad Romance and Poker Face, but the sledgehammer beat, gorgeously anthemic middle eight, and aggressive outro make this an instant standout. The gender politics on display in the lyrics are also refreshingly blunt. It'd make a great single. 10/10

4. Sexxx Dreams - Another winner, this piece of plastic funk sounds like it would have been right at home in the 80's.

So, I am a total metalhead. I listen to Death Metal and mostly extreme metal. However, I have my guilty pleasures in Lady Gaga. I have been a fan since the Fame.

In short I think Artpop is a fantastic album. A good variety of tunes and all are high quality for this type of music.
Gaga's albums usually have a song or two I don't enjoy. This one is no exception and the song is like usual one that most others go gaga over. It is Dope.

I will still give it full marks because I like the album overall and feel it is a great addition to her discography.

This is a clear step forward for Lady Gaga--but it is a step away from the strict commercial formula that made her famous, and that has caused some backlash in the media. Other than "Do What You Want" (which is a canny choice for a second single), the songs don't really fit the pop mold of what is on the radio, though they certainly operate within that medium. But the beats are harder. I think "Aura" is really the best thing on the album--inventive, challenging, still with a hook in the chorus. Like a lot of other songs on the album, it owes a lot to the late 80s/early 90s Industrial Dance movement. I hear Front 242, Ministry and Nitzer Ebb as influences on a lot of the tracks here--and that's a good thing. It follows on from songs like "Government Hooker" from BTW. I think there are missteps here--"Jewels-n-drugs" is not good, and neither are "Donatella" nor "Fashion," really. But "Venus" successfully updates the wackiness of the B-52s, as does "Sexx Dreams" for the sultry side of Prince. Lady Gaga is challenging herself, and that is interesting in a sea of pop music that usually aims for the lowest common denominator.

GaGa is on to something here. The whole concept is about putting ART into mainstream culture, a reverse Warholian concept: making Marilyn the canvas vs. putting her on it, putting the soup can back on the shelf. Hence ARTPOP. Something our culture needs as it seems art is slowly dying and people are quick to judge what is right and what is wrong. And the best part is, she doesn't care what anybody thinks. She's following her heart.

Now, some say the music's lyrics aren't very artistic. I agree, but the album is also a celebration for her and her fans. Life after Born This Way. But there are a few songs that are magical with their lyrics (Aura, Venus, ARTPOP, and Applause).

Defanitily purchase this album of you're looking for amazing dance music and a hell of a good time. Start the music, stop the drama.

ARTPOP is a revolutionary twist in the pop music world. A clash of old and new world charm, sarcastic undertones, love, and plenty of references to cannabis. Whether you want to listen to an uplifting record, or a fun and wild tune, this is the number one album of this year by far!

Lady Gaga really missed the mark with her 3rd studio album, "ARTPOP". This record is all over the place. I feel like she took 2 HUGE steps back while recording this album. Lady Gaga sounds disinterested, like she didn't care or her heart wasn't fully in it while composing these songs. Musically, her songwriting hasn't grown much since "The Fame". But personality wise, she's definitely suffering from some sort of a identity crisis. She's too preoccupied with being eccentric than being authentic. I've been a fan of Lady Gaga since the beginning and I thought "The Fame", "The Fame Monster", and "Born This Way" were brilliant, diverse pop albums. The main problem with "ARTPOP" is it's very inconsistent. Not every song is a train wreck, some are actually quite good. But this album doesn't make me FEEL anything besides "Gypsy". And there's too many songs about getting naked and doing the nasty. And there's also too many songs about her love for drugs and booze. Instead of being a trendsetter or a trailblazer, Gaga has decided to blend in with the rest of the pack. There's nothing experimental or groundbreaking about "ARTPOP" and that's a real shame. She can sing her butt off but I'm starting to think she's a one-trick pony, and I absolutely dislike making harsh statements like that because I truly feel she's a talented artist. Here's my rundown of the songs below:

THE GOOD:

"Aura" - Great beat and hook. The chorus is big and glorious, but the verses are awkward and I don't like the abrupt ending.
"Venus" - I thought this song was too campy at first but I've come to adore this song. It's melodic, catchy, and sarcastic.
"G.U.Y." - Another song that has a killer hook but the chorus is a bit flat. And the ending is too loud and aggressive.
