    I'm neither a music aficionado nor Gaga's target audience so take this review with a pinch of salt, these are my opinions not irrefutable facts. ARTPOP explores some weird musical avenues that most other artists would find too risky to try, to some success. I really liked "Aura", "Venus", "G.U.Y.", "Se*** Dreams", and "Applause", but was confused by other tracks like, "Swine" because it seemed as though she was saying that if I found her attractive then I was a pig or something. Maybe I read too much into it or just read it wrong, but I didn't appreciate the gesture. I also am not sure about the track "Do What U Want" (featuring R. Kelly), it seems as though she is telling either the listener or Mr. Kelly that they may use her body as they wish. I wouldn't describe myself as a feminist, but the general theme of this track makes me cringe that someone would allow others to objectify and use themselves so freely. "Donatella", "Fashion!" and "Mary Jane Holland" seem to aimed at fashionistas, of which I am not, so while these tracks are generally pleasant listening they do nothing for those of us who are not concerned with modern/high fashion trends (I also have no idea who Mary Jane Holland is but Gaga makes her sound like a big deal). I found the remaining tracks on the album to be okay, but not really noteworthy. The only other thing I have to say about this album is that it doesn't sound like her previous work (many of the tracks have several new producers credited). ARTPOP is very noisy, that is to say there are many different synth-instruments (I don't actually know what instruments I hear in most tracks to be honest) playing alongside numerous audio samples from I don't know what, as well as audio filters on Gaga's own voice (not auto tuning per se), this was initially a bit jarring, but once I'd heard it a few times it didn't bother me anymore, but I do think I would have liked the album better without all the filters and synth-noise.

    Disappointing

    After all the hype that was coming out about how revolutionary Lady Gaga's new album was going to be, a lot of fans were left disappointed. Both the lyrics and the music seemed shallow and generic on Artpop. I was very upset to hear that Manicure was butchered in the studio. This wasn't the song I fell in love with when I saw Gaga perform it at the Itunes festival. Aura and S*** Dreams also sounds over produced and vapid. I thought the demo of Aura (Burqa) had a lot more soul and expression in her voice than the final studio version. I was surprised and disappointed that the only song Redone was credited with was Gypsy. Gaga has written some of her best songs with him (Bad Romance, Judas etc.). I think his presence was needed once again on this record. In the end what matters to me is the quality of music. Artpop did not have the quality and charm of her past albums. I still consider The Fame Monster Gaga's best work. I thought Born This Way was a step down, but not a bow out. I personally feel Artpop is by far Gaga's most forgettable record.

    I own her 1st CD THE FAME that's all, GREAT! At least 7 tracks stay on program repeat when I play it. . Heard bits & pieces of her other 2 CD's but not enough to draw a like it or leave type opinion. I have this MP3 on my PC as the CD goes to my niece as a XMAS gift. Well, I LOVE IT! 10 stars! It is not a very commercially accessible album/songs for the mass market worldwide. It is very AVANT NON COMMERCIAL ELECTRO TECHNO DANCE POP ROCK FREAK. No wonder it failed in many critics & fan's EARS. VERY EURO sounding not USA sounding at all. I'd love to see LG team up with BOWIE/SPARKS/GRACE JONES/KELIS/ALICE COOPER to name just a few. They are to me ALL IN THE SAME BAG & MIX as artists who REINVENT themselves visually & musically. My fave songs? ARTPOP/AURA/MANICURE/DO WHAT U WANT/VENUS. It's all GOOD STUFF! I see a psycho circus of freaks & midgets flying high & speeding on LSD running & jumping thru hoops of burning fire & flames as this album blasts in the background. As John Lennon said with The Beatles... A SPLENDID TIME IS GUARANTEED FOR ALL!

    This album is a celebration. ARTPOP's audio is like your pain exploding in electronic music. Its heavy, but when you listen to it, it makes everything feel lighter again. To say that this album is breath-taking is an understatement. From the way the beats hit you in a place in your heart that you didn't know you had, to the album cover that perfectly represents the spirit of ARTPOP. Anyone would appreciate this music, not just another monster, and for some people, this is more than an album. Stef, if you're reading this, know that i wish you nothing but the best, and i know that your career is just beginning. You've come a long way, and you still have far to go, i hope your jazz record with Mr. Tony Bennett lives up to ARTPOP, as i'm sure it will, and i wish happiness to you and Taylor. Paws up! -H

    While I do find this to be an ok album, I only listen to a few of the songs. To me, most of the other songs are rather average or not all that interesting. What I can say about this one is that, like the other albums, the booklet contains the lyrics to the song. The internet can be very helpful for looking up lyrics, but I often like having the booklets contain the lyrics. I only own 3 of the albums: this one, Born This Way and The Fame Monster. To me, Born This Way is still the number 1 album.

    I love Lady Gaga, and have been a huge fan for a lonnnnng time, but alas, I regretfully believe that the height of her career is over. Fame: loved all of the songs, Fame Monster: loved almost all the songs, Born This Way, loved more than half the songs, Art Pop: I love maybe 4-5 songs. So there's been a steady decline in quality, from which I hope she bounces back, but very unlikely because of whatever is going on that's causing her to be the way she is nowadays.

    Lady Gaga Album 3... no surprises

    If you like Lady Gaga, you'll like this album. I don't think it's as deep as her last CD and not as catchy as the first one so it's not up to her normal standards. I wouldn't pay a full retail price for this but on sale, you'd pay the same for a couple or 3 or the songs that you'd end up downloading later anyway so go ahead and pick it up.

    I purchased three additional handsets - packaging reflects "caller ID announce" is on the extras I purchased. That option is NOT on the phone. I returned them once thinking they were defective. Second set doesn't have "caller ID announce" either even though packaging reflects it does. Technical Support was no assistance either.
