  • I'm sure Lady Gaga has a fine sense of humor. She'd laugh. Love her.

    Jo's opening sounds like a Walt Disney tale, a book you start reading... There's something majestic in it, I swear.




    It's hypnotic! So beautiful. This is the most stunning and well crafted music Goldfrapp have ever produced, and I'm a Church of the Seventh Tree Completist.

  • I think Artpop better be good because it is her one chance of redeeming herself. She's been losing a LOT of fans and credibility with the second album and the way she talked about herself and her 'art' and presented both. She made a ridiculously good start before the narcissism set in and she started taking every spoon she touched a bit too seriously. 

    I like Gaga best acoustic. Just a piano and her. That is where you see the real talent behint the show and behind the bla bla. I love it when she does those sessions.

  • @Alan, @Low, @Vesper, @Sparky: can you confirm here please that the lyric 'you better run for your life' is indeed from Jo? Thank you. (Someone's been discussing it backstage but they tends to keep asking me if I'm sure it's really from that song).

    Good. That's sorted then.
    Back to M&Ms...

  • I love love love acoustic Lady Gaga!

    She really shines when she sings and plays piano.

    Lady Gaga, please marry me. I'll become normal for you.

  • Ok, Leak Freaks. Alvar is wrongly labelled as Jo, and vice versa. 

    I was at the gig and the songs were played in the order of the album track list (minus Thea) It's a concept album! 

    The first performance was a dreamy fairytale track containing the Run lyric. This is Jo. Alvar is guitarry and sounds like Sigur Ros, and was performed halfway through the gig.

    Hope that clears it up X

  • @Sparky are you sure?

    'Jo' is currently my all-time fave.

  • Yes. Leaks are mislabelled. Which is an inetersting fact.

    Spitting in their face? The leak talk is going to happen.  if there is a problem then I really don't care if people delete this thread, leak talk was happening elsewhere and people were complaining. Do with this thread what you wish :-D



    I think some people are being a little bit hypocritical and intolerant. This (spoiler) thread has been created only for people who listened to the few songs that leaked, wanting to share their emotions about it. So why people are reading it if they don't like it ? Do they expect to find some recipe to make a good ratatouille ? Or what ? Seriously...

    I'm not fond of album leaks in general, because it can hurt artists. I just know that I bought every Goldfrapp albums, no matter if they did leak or not. Don't tell me nobody ever listen to leaks, please. We're not here for teaching/learning lessons, but for Alison and Will.

    People are free to listen to leaks or not before release.
  • 'Jo' has a Japanese-Geisha-themed musical accompaniment. Love it.

    Yeah. It sounds Asian-ish. Even the first batch of violins VERY much so.
    But only in the beginning.

    Then it's not mislabeled. Thank God.

  • (It seems some people have mislabelled songs and some do not, which means either there are more than one leaks going on OR somebody is mislabeling their downloads and respreading them here).
