The Born This Way | Teenage Dream | Warrior VS Rate - VOTING CLOSES IN TWO WEEKS

    Gaga. Katy. Kesha. Rare creatures from a rare time in pop music that saw them burst into our lives with earth-shattering smash hits. Their debuts reflected each artists' points-of-view, delivered in their own unique styles. The Katy, Kesha, Gaga First Eras Rate that was hosted last year gave us the opportunity to assess their debut efforts. Gaga was the clear victor, occupying the top 3 spots. Kesha held her own with 5 songs in the top 10. Poor Katy, however only managed to scrape one song into the top 10.

    As we've seen time and time again in pop music, an artist's sophomore effort is almost as crucial as their debut if they want to achieve longevity. It's their opportunity to consolidate their position in the pop music landscape. The road to the pantheon of Big Pop Girls™ is paved with unfulfilled potential and one-hit wonders. Gaga and Kesha may have softened the impact of a sophomore slump with The Fame Monster and Cannibal, but those releases are still firmly tied to their successful parent albums. In pop music, there's always a risk of flopping, even when your material is good.

    So, what did these ladies deliver us with their sophomore efforts, was it as good as what they provided us with their debuts and was it good enough to cement their status in pop music? You be the judge.



    THE RULES
    • Rate each song on a scale of 0 - 10.
    • Part points are allowed, but only to 1 decimal place.
    • You may award one song the coveted 11/10. Your justification for awarding this is up to you. You can simply award it to your favourite song, or award it to another song that you love, but feel is under-rated.
    • These ladies can be quite polarising, as observed in the First Eras rate, so I'll be on the lookout for any ballots that are trolling. Please be reasonable with your votes.
    • Commentary to go with your scores is welcome, encouraged and will very much be appreciated, not only by myself but also by your fellow voters.


    THE SONGS

    We're looking at these artists' second album eras, so this includes songs on re-releases such as Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

    Also, to hopefully save any confusion, any songs where there's an alternate version due to the addition of a featured artist or an artist produced remix, have also been listed beside the album version. You do not need to submit separate scores for each version of the same song.

  7. @ThisIsRogue please change Born This Way for the Special Edition cover, Teenage Dream for the textless cover and Warrior for the japanese edition cover, k, thnx.

  8. Haha I was actually going to use one of the alternate covers for Born This Way and Teenage Dream but figured I'd stay true to each artist's original vision. Born This Way has always been particularly terrible with that Word Art style title and terrible photoshopping. The standard Warrior album cover isn't that bad by comparison!

    I can of course update the album covers if enough people find them too much of an assault on their eyes and artistic sensibilities.

  9. So here for this.

    And just to be a nitpicky there is also an official acoustic one for The One That Got Away. I imagine it is allowed to rate that version too if they prefer it?

  10. Yes, I did see the acoustic version on The Complete Confection. Must have forgotten to list it alongside the album version.

  12. I'm here for Born This Way and ..... only Born This Way. I liked Teenage Dreams singles at the time but I think they aged not very well and Warrior wasn't a good album even in 2012.

  13. I feel like this has all been rated before?
     
  14. I can't wait for Heavy Metal Lovers win x
     
  15. Can't wait for Kesha to win this with a bonus track.
     
  16. I still can't get over the hideous blue Outer Glow on the Teenage Dream font.

  17. It is amazing that Gaga and Katy, two women who are known for their strong visuals, could be OK with such ugly design choices for their second eras.

  19. Submitted already, I could rate Born This Way and Warrior in my sleep so I took my time with Katy to really be fair with my scores. @Lost Boy would be proud.

    Born This Way - 8.58
    Teenage Dream - 7.36
    Warrior - 8.15
