G.U.Y. by Lady Gaga

I feel like I’m one of the few people who really likes Artpop a lot and I’m not just some knee-jerk Gaga fan who loves everything from her. Don’t get me wrong. I loved The Fame/Fame Monster. It’s still one of my favorite albums, period. But, Born This Way was bad. Artpop approaches The Fame level quality. I think it’s that good.

I’m not sure what I think about the video. It has it’s hits and misses. I think it would benefit from some editing, especially by omitting some of the superfluous references (e.g. Michael Jackson, which might really be a reference to Das Racist’s Michael Jackson video). Overall, I think that it hits much more than it misses and, by the end, I thoroughly enjoyed it. When Gaga focuses herself, she’s a tremendous visual artist.  

Regardless of what you think about the video, you have to acknowledge that Gaga spent a lot of time and energy in trying to make something special. As a fan, I appreciate that.

Quarrel by Zamilska

The track is a haunting, effective piece of dark ambient and the video is stunning as well.
