Bloomberg reviews ARTPOP, calls its a "good pop album"

Smooth Criminal

 

 

Lady Gaga’s “ARTPOP†has serious artistic pretentions, right from the album’s title and cover: a Jeff Koons statue of the star with a Botticelli montage.

Gaga has described the album as “a celebration and a poetic musical journey.†Yeah, right.

The cover of "ARTPOP," also stylized as "ARTPOP," the third studio album by Lady Gaga. The image shows a statue of Gaga by Jeff Koons, set against a montage based on "The Birth of Venus" painting by Sandro Botticelli.

Well, at least “ARTPOP†-- out on Nov. 11 and already leaked online -- is more ambitious than its predecessors.

Rihanna, watch out: She’s trying hip-hop. Beyonce, beware: Gaga’s ripping off R&B. She’s even got soul in a duet with R. Kelly, “Do What U Want.†For all that, the hour-long collection stays mainly in the electronic-dance overdrive mode of the crazed opener “Aura.†The only respite from disco is a piano ballad, “Dope.†This Rick Rubin-produced track shows, at the very least, that Gaga can out-sing Madonna. While that may not be saying much, she’s grabbed Madonna’s glitter ball, too -- a necessary cover-up for that naked Koons statue. Lady Gaga is still fascinated by celebrity, the fame monster she’s created, and above all, herself. She asks at the start, “Do you want to see the girl behind the aura?†Assuming you do, some slick melodies follow, though few are as memorable and catchy as previous hits such as “Just Dance.†Rating: ***

 

A very positive review!  :party:

I wouldn't say it is very positive, three stars out of five is average, no matter what their "rating system" says.
Nice score, poor review.

doesn't seem very positive.. the statement at the end is kind of false IMO.
Just Dance didn't even have a proper melody.  :derpga:

You know what's so amusing? Gaga gets graded on such a tough uphill artistic incline, and no matter how negative the author is, they can't deny how talented she is.

 

 

She frustrates music critics. They want to label her as simply "pretentious" and walk away, but they realize that underneath all of the verbosity is an amazing voice.

Yeah it mentions "Just Dance" over all her other hits? Where has this person been since 2008?

Also it sounds too sassy for my taste.

ikr?

But that's the problem I see with almost every ARTPOP review limited to 20 lines.

They reduce her to her hits.
