Discognant on Lady Gaga
- I, as the rest of the world, am sick of Lady Gaga. Unlike the rest, however, I love her and her music. When you consider that it took the Black Eyed Peas and 4 other producers to create the song "Ima Be" which was deliberately designed to be minimalistic, you can image that the production on the album ARTPOP would be top notch. And they are.
- As a music producer there are several sounds I hear in music that I wonder how they are created. The Masters of EDM create these sounds. I have heard them all on the album ARTPOP. Every EDM convention and experimental trick in the book is perfectly rendered by extreme talent (Zedd). I personnaly do not like Zedd's hard electro sound, but mixed with the softer sounds of Gaga's voice and the works of other EDM producers, a surprising result was achieved. To the masses, this album may not be what they were looking for. I do not see how it could have gone any other way, considering the simplicity of Gaga's debut album in contrast with her Sophmore album "Born This Way". To an EDM producer, I am extremely impressed with the quality of the album. All of the songs have a sound in common, but are so extremely different. I attribute the diversity to the producers and the cohesiveness to Gaga herself. This is not an album to top charts for long, but like Madonna's Ray of Light will be remembered for all time and a baby step in the evolution of Electrionic Music. What producers are doing RIGHT NOW is perfectly exemplified in album, and will be attributed in the future to changing the EDM genre into to just plain Pop.
