After another listen, the only songs I can really get into are the singles. I'm not feeling this album at all.

this album is absolute garbage - not a single track has staying power. no idea how this is the same artist who made a genius pop album like the fame/the fame monster. seriously bummed.

betch you are high!


I think these songs are so badass:
Marry The Night
Judas
Hair
Bloody Mary
Electric Chapel
You and I

I really really love Electric Chapel, guys. Also I just got the special edition, only one worth it is The Queen.

I don't know, some are flops and some are fantastic. It's definitely different that TFM, but that doesn't make it bad. Maybe we just shouldn't all have expected The Fame Monster v2.0

Nothing really stuck with me much either. One song had a chorus I really dug but I can't remember which one it was. Should have stuck to the The Fame Monster style.

Oh? So then why her most lauded release (TFM) an EP? A decent amount of her success is based off of strong singles, and not because she created a cohesive album. No one can deny that.

Because this time around she wanted to make a solid cohesive record that makes more sense as it's entirety then a bunch of gold singles. She can do what she wants. No one can deny that.

Last two tracks are the best. A handful of others I enjoyed, and a whole lot of filler. Probably not going to hold onto this whole album.

I've only listened to this once, and it may change, but this album very much so pales in comparison to her other stuff. That "hugeness" is missing in the songs.

What are you talking about? I'm not speaking about TFM at all so I'm not sure what you are trying to infer from my previous post.
The Fame & The Fame Mons†er are cohesive albums. I felt all of those songs were really good or amazing and could've done well on radio.
With The Fame, she was writing from an outsider's perspective on what the "fame" is and then with The Fame Mons†er, now that she had "the fame" she was able to give a more insightful perspective on how it affected/did not affect her.
I do feel the same about this record. I just feel this record comes full circle when it comes to sticking to one message.

I feel Born This Way is light years ahead of any other pop album that has been released since 00s.
She's finally putting her money where her mouth is.
Her message lately has always been "be proud of who you are. don't change yourself to please others." Her music never really reflected that til this album.

Maybe she'll put out another mind blowing EP by the end of the year or beginning of next year.

Man, I really need to listen to this.

Nervous to listen to this. Opinions are all over the board on this one.

I'm talking about the fact that she became insanely huge because of the popularity of her singles. TF and TFM were single driven albums. TF had 5 singles worldwide, nearly half the tracks. TFM had 3 singles, nearly half the tracks. All of those tracks follow the same basic formula.

People have a hard time reading in this thread.
Uhm...that's kind of what happens with pop stars in case you don't know. Pop stars release songs on radio. They promote them via tv performances, radio visits, interviews, etc. and then the world rejoices. hahaha. I'm not sure what you are trying to say, honestly.
Also, The Fame had five singles but there are fourteen tracks. That is not half.
What "same basic formula" are you talking about?
Structurally? they are not the same. Lyrically? No. Vocally? No.
Yes, each song had infectious hooks. That's kind of why they are popular.

I just put on "Scheiße." Wow. If this is not a single, I will figure out a way to get close to her just to kick her myself.
