Despite her unlimited talent, I’ve never been a big fan of Gaga’s pop efforts. Mainly, because I’m not a fan of mainstream pop in general, but also because I know Gaga is capable of so much more. The album she made with Tony Bennett was superb and “Joanne” is fantastic, as well. This album is stripped down and feels much more real and heartfelt than usual and contains an eclectic range of music. It also brings out her natural talents, rather than resorting to autotune. This is the direction Lady Gaga needs to continue to go in. She a generational star and head and shoulders above pretty much any current pop star. She needs to be able to show off her abilities, rather than wasting them.
