In Review: Joanne

At midnight last night Lady Gaga released her latest solo effort out into the world. Entitled ‘Joanne’ (in honour of her late aunt) the album sees Gaga veer in a completely new direction from all of her previous records, a move that has been questioned by many. For such an extravagant, flamboyant performer to hang up her pop shoes and record a more stripped back, rock focused album is a big risk. Has she pulled it off?
