Last week I gave my first impressions of the album and now is time for a more in depth take on the tracks of ARTPOP. Now that I've had a week or so to digest them, I feel that my opinions are more what they're going to be going forward rather than some innocuous first impressions that don't always mean that much with new music.

Left her in the trunk on Highway 10
Put the knife under the hood
If you find it, send it straight to Hollywood
