Ugh, you just reminded me that ARTPOP deserved better. I actually can't believe she doesn't have a higher metascore than 78

They're always exceptionally harsh on established artists and very lenient towards newer, younger artists.

Artists like Eminem, Gaga, Katy, Timberlake can barely crack 70 whereas Selena Gomez who has never been nominated for any Grammys get Adele-level scores. I also think they're extremely lenient towards new acts like Dua Lipa, Cardi B when they were debuting.

They don't judge albums, they judge artists in relation to their previous record.

Yeah it’s somehow unfair but a bit flattering. It’s the expectations. 
 

If Gaga or Katy Perry was the one who puts out Future Nostalgia (which is a great album deserving of the score) I’m pretty sure most of the reviews would view it as mediocre or worse a regression. 

FUNK ME DOWNTOWN.

Do we have any idea when the embargo will be lifting? I know usually it lifts on release day, but sometimes it lifts 3-5 days before album release. I'm excited to read reviews and think it will create even more hype for the album. :firega:

They deserved so much more...

i still can't believe that TFM and BTW didn't snatch more than 85.

My name isn't Alice but I'll keep looking for Wonderland.

I guarantee Gaga would get like a 55 for Future Nostalgia, and Dua Lipa would get 80 for ARTPOP. Dua would be praised so hard for challenging the boundaries of pop music and heralded as the new Lady Gaga or something.

They're clearly more interested in the artist than the art.

Imagine if at that time Katy Perry was the one who released ARTPOP. I think she’ll get better reviews as it’ll be perceived as a growth and something deep. 

It’s really hard to just erase the artist out of the picture and just focus on the album. I hate it.
