I really like Born This Way and (most of) ArtPop. I liked their ambition, though the deluxe edition of BTW actually diluted that album's power, and ArtPop strayed a bit at times. With Joanne, though, Lady Gaga has embraced everything that she's best at: Great singing, great songs, wonderful rhythms, tones, and production. Take away the visuals that are so key to her persona, and just listen to her music, and you get an expressive voice. Paired with high quality songs, she stands out not just for her extracurricular activities and outlandish glam outfits, but for being one the premier artists working on the worldwide stage today.
Certainly this comes with a lot of hype. The singles leading up to the release indicated we were in for a good one, but the full album, taken as a whole, is even better. From the very beginning of Diamond Heart, through a variety of styles (dance pop, rock, R&B, and even country), until the end, this album never gets boring and never disappoints. I...
JOANNE sounds unlike anything that is currently on the radio. It's Gaga's most personal album to date. This is her bearing her life and soul without any make-up, wigs or costumes.

This is one of Lady Gaga's most well-produced albums. With producers and Grammy winning artists such as Mark Ronson, Florence Welch, Beck, BloodPop, Kevin Parker, Josh Homme, and Father John Misty involved, there is no surprise that this album is cohesive and flows so naturally. Joanne tells the story of a young New York girl whose happiness, sadness, tragic life experiences, and motivations are so relatable and carried through her music. This album is an ode to her later aunt, Joanne, whom Gaga believes would've wanted to spread messages of love, compassion, and self-care to the world if she were to be alive today. She does all that with this album and still manages to keep every song memorable, catchy, and plain gorgeous. I will for sure purchase a vinyl copy once it's available for those days when I want to relax and sing-along with my close friends. This is Gaga like we've never seen or heard her before, with no hard to understand lyrics or outfits. It's Gaga wanting to reflect...
