Lady Gaga hasn't quite finished recording Born This Way, but the pop star is slowly revealing details of what's sure to be one of the biggest albums of '11.

"Endless melodies, hooks + poetry sledge-hammering my skull," Gaga Tweeted about the album. "It won't be much longer, it's almost perfect. But I (we) don't want almost."

While Gaga has been performing new songs like "Living on the Radio" live, those close in her circle have heard additional tracks. Akon, whose label Kon Live is involved with Gaga, told MTV the new songs are better than those on Monster. "I've definitely heard [it], and what I can really tell you about it is the fact that I'm excited - and I'm hard to excite," he said. "If I was going to compare it to her previous work, I would definitely say it's a notch up. It's like she's slowly taking you on this journey down this road."
