Artist: Lady Gaga
Label: KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records
Genre: Pop, Rock
A rather unusual feature for MetalRecusants.com… a pop artist! ‘How dare they!’ – trve metalheads will be shouting out. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. This also applies to music. Forget everything you knew about Lady Gaga as a mega pop star and press play to listen to the music. It is evident from Joanne that Lady Gaga has matured as an artist. It is undeniable that these songs are personal. She has stated herself that one of them is “a story and look into my life”. The music speaks for itself on this album, you sense the maturity and get a better feel of the real person behind Lady Gaga. Definitely one of my favourite and most-played albums of 2016.
