So why do ya'll think this album aged like milk?

 

Is it because of the low-rent production? Or is it because of the meh songwriting?

 

Joanne aged like poorly, and Gaga stans even admitted to that. But Joanne was highly praised by critics and was well-received by the GeePee.

 

:jonny4:

The album never sounded fresh. It was a pop nostalgia 2002 album. Cute and one of her best efforts but replay value is medium at best.

I personally think the album is just real, raw music. Only Head Above Water and Dumb Blonde were produced with radio in mind.

I still listen to the album at least twice a day :toofunny2:

It's my easy-listening go-to album for when I want to listen to something while cooking, commuting etc :michael:

After quite a long time I decided to check this thread and what do I see? People all around being disappointed as **** and calling this her worst album ever... Not to mention the whole era... Do I look surprised? :lmao: And this one member still trying to pretend this album is good and raw :rip:  Well let's put it this way:

if Avril Lavigne was 10/10, Head Above Water would still score only 3/10...

Let's not say the album is "bad" but all of her other albums are definitely much much better

wouldn't say 'definitely' AL was a mess

both albums are 7.5/10 to me

pretty on par with AL

having higher highs

and lower lows

HAW (song) is #2 in Japan, just behing Ariana's 7 anal rings.

It debuted outside Top 10 two weeks ago.

I don't thing it's a completely bad album. I would like to describe it as a mostly sloppy pop record.

Mix of average compositions, sometimes bland lyrics and solid production (partially). 

 

Some of the songs are qualitative as instrumental track, but ruined by middling lyrics ("Goddess", "I Felt In Love With a Devil").

Rest of songs have great lyrics, but formulaic pop production ("Souvenir", "Tell Me It's Over").

 

"It Was In Me", "Crush" and the title track have some balance between all of these messy parts.

I still love IWIM, Crush, DB, Bigger Wow, HAW and TMIO. IWIM just needed a bit more, umm, polished professional production to become a classic.
