I do like the album. It just doesn’t take me to the places I felt it was promising
I'm listening to The Fame and honestly... these crunchy, fabulous album tracks were just too much for the girls to take. They could hear that three day old hairspray in her wig and that perpetual snort of a cistern sniffer and it sent them running. Funk the punk indeed.
I can't help myself
I'm addicted to a life of material
It's some kind of joke
I'm obsessively opposed to the typical
All we care about is runway models
Cadillacs and liquor bottles
Give me something I wanna be
Retro glamor Hollywood, yes, we live for the
FAME! Doin' it for the fame
'Cause we wanna live the life of the rich and famous
Fame, doin' it for the fame
'Cause we gotta taste for champagne and endless fortune
I totally agree with this. My timeline seems to be almost unanimously worshipping it, and while I love the message and the lyrics, I really just cannot buy into the production. It veers off into just noise at points. Which is strange because most of the album, if anything, lacks that hallmark of most Gaga records.
I’ve had the album on today again and let it marinate for a bit. It’s not bad, I enjoy it a lot for all its basic boppery, but it’s just not the album we’d been promised? All the watered down references, the way it’s all so polished. It’s a collection of excellent Eurovision entries which isn’t a bad thing, but not what I really wanted from a Gaga album.
The numerous earworms from this won’t leave my mind for a second today.
While I have some favorites I really enjoy listening to the album as a whole all together. Her lyrical content and delivery are what round out the album for me. I took it for a spin in the car when doing errands and it bumps a lot harder than I thought it would. After hearing how well the vinyl is pressed I might end up getting the silver one. I of course want one with the cover but...I hate waiting.
I don't think so. Gaga is an overall very strong album maker. Kylie is not; her albums are fillerlicious for the most part. And Kylie definitely has a bad album or two.
Anyway, I'm done listening to this album. There are some strong hooks and melodies here and it's way better than "Stupid Love" indicated, but it's a creative failure. It often sounds very good, but there's a lack of interesting ideas. Replay, Enigma, and Babylon strike me as the most satisfying things here (they really improved Babylon a lot). The production is extremely straightforward and hollow.
I think the Elton duet is kinda bad. Surprised to be see it mentioned as a highlight.
That guy is me right now except I can't cry and I deleted Facebook a long time ago because I am not a middle aged woman. But he is pretty much me.
The Me Company-style CGI Spotify graphics for the whole album are kind of incredible. I just checked to see if the video in that tweet was one of them, but apparently not. Interesting...
The Fame is still stellar. Nearly flawless from top to bottom. Its always so weird to me to see people rank it low in her discography, like the fact that it was the debut somehow negates its quality. She's had bigger, more ambitious albums since, but she's never quite captured that quality control again.
The brain worms in my cranium bumping to this album.

Wait, has this been Melanie Blatt the whole time? I could’ve sworn it was Supernanny.
Once i thought it was Amy Winehouse :(
I will use any excuse to praise this underrated masterpiece.
ONE, TWO, THREE,
Chromatica II into 911 is sublime.
Yes, I believe it’s official. Skrillex tweeted it before the 3D artist and the album just came out, I don’t think they came up with the concept and rendered the video just yesterday (?). Or maybe, some 3D artists are fast ;;;
Yeah, this was by Beeple, they’re an amazing artist on Instagram with some crazy apocalyptic visuals.
I wouldn’t hate a full length video.
