I am finishing this up as I type this. After a relatively disappointing year in pop music, this pretty much redeems all of it. I never listened to any of her records all the way through and I don't really have any desire to get into her other music, but I made a good effort this year to listen to a lot of music that I normally would not have. This is absolutely fantastic. It doesn't really have any depth, with the exception of Dope, maybe; however, the hooks on this record are absolutely massive. G.U.Y and ARTPOP are the biggest standouts upon a first listen. Congrats, Gaga. You greatly impressed someone who was not a fan.
