A NEW HIT MACHINE?
Born This Way felt a bit odd to me. After the groundbreaking The Fame album and its subsequent equally groundbreaking re-release The Fame Monster, I was wondering if Lady Gaga would be able to continue to produce so many hit songs again. I mean, would you want to be the producer of the album following Thriller? You get my point.
Born This Way's best and worst part is in its theme. I think it's really a great idea to talk about accepting self and exploring the fact than everyone is "born this way" and must be accepted this way. The only problem is that this is sang by a lady that is showing a very glamorous image most of the time and that is having lots of tracks about being sex and rich, which is a bit counter-intuitive.
LESS RADIO GAGA
Still, the album is really excellent, with lots of catchy tunes, even though it never fully reaches the straight to the point (aka Radio Gaga) beauty from The Fame or The Fame Monster.
I give it 7 out of 10. Excellent.
