Lady Gaga - Chromatica

  1. I just wish "Sour Candy" went somewhere. The attitude is there, and BLACKPINK basically salvage the track. But it just kind of floats along on a tired interpolation, and then it's over.

  2. Moony. Taste. I'll check it.

    Edit: could I add songs? I'm so into the style of the playlist this last few months.
  3. I said this yesterday, but I think Alice would've done a good job of establishing the "dancing out of pain" narrative that's part of and been attached to this album. Questioning whether or not it would have been a hit is not something I'm especially interested in dissecting, but I can understand for that reason why Stupid Love was chosen, I guess.

    And for the record, I don't magically hate Stupid Love now that we have Chromatica or anything, but it sticks out like a sore thumb in context. How much of that is because I was so familiar with it by the time we finally made it through to the album, I'm not sure.

  4. The way Babylon said

  5. Wait I'm suddenly completely obsessed with this album I get it fuck
  6. I liked her little interview on Graham Norton. She seemed a lot brighter than in the Zane Lowe interview. She's so sweet
  7. Does the record sound that different to what people expected?

    The singles are pretty representative of its retro house and slightly updated old-skool Gaga.

    She does big pop hooks, so it was always going to have those. I doubt she’ll ever go too underground - too much to lose. And that’s fine.

  9. Stupid Love works really well next to Rain On Me and Free Woman. I'm not sure why anyone thinks its some big obvious outlier. I think the interludes are largely pointless, but they do pair up the songs that work best together in chapters I suppose.
  10. It's so weird, because "Stupid Love" doesn't actually feel that out of place to me. I don't like it, as you're well aware, but it doesn't seem like a completely misplaced inclusion.

    Its placement in the tracklist is a major misstep, though.

  11. I have completely disowned Stupid Love (for now). That 2D production has to be the most uninspired thing on the album.
  12. She was great on Graham Norton. Her personality is so pure and when she’s on a roll, she’s such a delight to listen to. Plus, Graham always gets guests on side.

    Also, I’ll always be grateful that Gaga was given a proper camera - no terrible laptop quality video is a bonus in lockdown.

  13. To be honest with you Diane, I think this has a lot to do with how I feel. Those huge-ass chunky drums and that sample coming directly after the relatively smooth, Jam & Spoon-y quality that Alice has is...jarring.
  14. We expected it to be good.

  15. ‘Alice’ as the first single with a video like a mix of Gwen Stefani’s ‘What You Waiting For’ and Kelly Clarksons ‘Don’t Waste Your Time’
