I like this album for what it is. And yeah, this could have something to do with my embarrassing affinity for bad 90's club pop. But overall, it's just not living up to The Fame Monster for me. The hooks aren't as big and there's not enough diversity, it's hard to tell one song from another. There seems to be a lot of filler, I feel like half the tracks could have been cut.
That being said, there are definitely some good tracks on here that are reminiscent of TFM. Schieße NEEDS to be a single (but I said this over and over again about Monster and it never was). Yoü & I is catchy as fuck and reminds me of Speechless. Hair and Marry The Night are fun, but still don't live up to the singles from TF or TFM.
I don't know, I'm enjoying it for now... but I'm questioning its staying power.
ahhh i share your love for "Monster"
