The reviews so far are a mess...60/60/40 out of 100...critics are also slamming the album. If this ends up with less than 60 on metecritic after the monsters have been so cocky this entire time I'll die. It's currently at 53 with those 1st three reviews. :hang:

The review thread on ATRL had 200 members yesterday and it's currently 74 pages long with only 4 reviews in.

The party is about to start tomorrow midnight when the album is out  :hang:  :hang:  :hang:

The album isn't *that* bad and I understand the concept of reinvention (she needed it + it's what popstars do cfr. Madonna with 'Music') but it's just that the music is not exciting at all... Most titles are average at best. 'Million reasons' is the obvious radio single but Adele does it better tbh.

Metacritic shading her ruthlessly  :hang:

Her going off on a NYT reviewer and being extra on twitter   :hang:

Her fanbase claiming the reviewers are judging her persona not her music :hang:

It's actually sad. Whole situation, especially with the media. Because they want Lady Gaga the character, not Lady Gaga the artist.

Ppl think that Gaga is The Fame (Monster), they have THAT picture in their heads and everything that is not crazy costumes, performances and videos, catchy Pop tunes and scandals is not good enough for them because they can't benefit and profit from this Gaga. It's sad, because i am sure that she put her heart and soul into this album and "internet" and media reacting the way they are doing... is just not cute at all. Definition of Digital Distortion.


And BTW. i don't have anything against her or anyone else talking about things they think are not ok. I mean ppl used to make fun of Iggy, Demi, Gaga and other artists for speaking their mind on social media... i think that they should speak if they feel like that.

I think the problem is that we don't know who Gaga is and even worse, she doesn't know who she is. 

Toning down pop songs and adding a country flare to them doesn't mean you are artsy or innovative, these can also be bad and uninteresting. She ditched the costumes to play with cowboy hats, i agree with the NYT review that this feels more like a concept, not a new direction.

She has the talent but she is misusing it in the worst way possible. She could be really good if she wasn't so stuck up and defensive, her personality holds her back.

Well so far i like ayo, some ballad i heard once but the Florence duet is cute af. I really like that song but Florence's presence probably did that since ive become obsessed with flo since how big came out lmaooo so im prob biased but the song is cute af. Nothing bang hitting but sometimes just a laid back uplifting song is nice it'd make a nice 4th/5th single

After listening to Joanne a couple of times now, I think it's a very pleasant album.  There aren't many songs I'm dying to listen to over and over again (ala some of the songs on The Fame and The Fame Monster), but when listened to as a whole, the album is a great collection of songs that flow beautifully ... I can't envision myself skipping any songs when listening to the album.

Just saw the superbowl performance (I missed the game as well due to a family funeral) & am I missing something?

I saw a lot of people saying she was amazing but where? She rehashed every single performance...every dance move, every prop, every back up dancer, everything was exactly the same as she's been doing for years. There was absolutely nothing original or unique about her performance...in fact it was one of the most boring half time performances in years IMO.

Hmm.. i wouldn't say it was boring, but she played it safe.

There was nothing that wowed me because i've already knew all the steps and stuff. 

 

She delivered a show that as usual gets overrated by the GP/media

She left Joanna in her closet and brought back futuristic disco Gaga so fans were elated.

Also they praised her for doing a subtle political statement in the beginning of the show.

 

I always try to imagine what would Shak do if she ever did the SB (not in Trump's America, obvi!)

I enjoyed the performance. A lot of nostalgia.

 

It's funny though, some Gaga fans were upset, becuase the performance showed that she hasn't had a memorable hit since 2011.
