Amazing: Alice, Free Woman, Plastic Doll, Replay, Breebylon
Good: Sour Candy, Enima, Sine
Meh: 911, Stupid Love, Rain On Me (barely makes it this high in my rating)
This is trash mawma: Fun Tonight, 1000 Doves
I'm just so glad this remix album exists. It felt like this mythical thing that, like much of what Gaga promises, was never going to materialise. Yet here it is in it's spectacularly messy, chaotic and maximalist glory.
There is a cohesiveness across it that I find astounding given the huge lineup of people involved in it's creation and almost all of them nail the assignment. Rina and Clarence deliver the Free Woman we all knew should've existed in the first place. Bree and Jimmy Edgar bring it on Babylon and even Ashnikko and Dorian (whose material has never really clicked with me) take Plastic Doll and Replay and dial them up to 11.
I know this album won't be for everyone but after such a lukewarm era that only had glimpses of the brilliance that Gaga is capable of it's so nice to just be thoroughly enraptured with this.
Now we just need her to work with these people on original music for LG7 and ditch Bloodpop and co.
