Review Summary: In conclusion ARTPOP is an okay album, some aspects are good, this album has the hype, the glamour and the bling, but little to no core of hearty substance for anyone to really be moved or wowed by.

Lady Gaga released her junior album ARTPOP on November 6, 2013 by Steamline and Interscope records after much delay and hype. Receiving high praises by critics and fans. ARTPOP has reached peak positions in several countries worldwide, top of the charts in the UK, Scotland, and Japan, also great standings in Norway, Australia, and the Czech Republic giving Lady Gaga a strong foundation in her newly produced album still in infancy, and gaining more momentum.

ARTPOP is a colourful, and eccentric piece of music, filled with enjoyable rhythms, dynamic fluctuation in good use of catchy even sometimes beautiful melodies, especially the powerful melancholic vocals in “Dope,” or grungy twinge in “Manicure”. On the surface ARTPOP is a solid album, yet in the depths of the concept and lyrical value, ARTPOP is an over-produced and over-sexed, and very underwhelming with the repetitive subject of sex, alcohol, drugs, and more sex. The hedonistic theme explodes in the ear canal of listeners as a line from “Do What U Want,” resounds from speakers boldly expressing, “You can’t have my heart, and you won’t use my mind, but do what you want with my body.” Is a prime example of women granting men to use them as sexual objects without consequence, these lyrics in the context of the song, along with “Aura,” “Sexxx Dreams,” “Venus,” “Swine,” and “Fashion!” sum up the message of ARTPOP which apparently conveys art as "a celebration and a poetic musical journey," which is contrary to the actual message presented in ARTPOP. Lady Gaga by no means is an original or eloquent lyricist, the mundane redundancy of “I’ll keep on searching for an answer, cause I need you than dope.” Is the kind of a cliché riddled lyrics permeating through her latest album; ARTPOP is the same recycled product recorded by her predecessors, nothing more, and nothing less.

-Yours Sincerely,

There are one too many good things said in this review to make this album a 2.5, plus, your first paragraph shouldn't solely be based on chart positioning because that has almost nothing to do with the album. Oh, and no more of this:

great name though; OdinMurderFist. But I agree with Squaids, and the review is quite brief, it's still well written though and I mostly agree with it.

Few things i noticed though;

You put the word conclusion in your summary, even though it appears at the beginning of the review.

Your quote of the lyrics “I’ll keep on searching for an answer, cause I need you than dope.” is missing a word between you and dope.

uk implies scotland; thus citing it as a country in which artpop has done well is pretty dumb

Thank for the comments listed, I admit I needed to tweak the review a bit, forgive me for the mess-ups I will try to improve on the next review. Appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
