5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Teenage Sister's Gaga May 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you come into Born This Way and expect to hear the exact same type of dance-pop that laced The Fame and, to a lesser extent, The Fame Monster, you will likely be a bit disappointed with this album. It isn't bubblegum.

Have you ever looked up videos of a young Gaga on YouTube? Have you watched stripped down performances of her dance-pop singles? If you have then you should realize that at her heart Lady Gaga is a rocker chick who has an instinctive ability to break these songs down to a pop enough core that they connect with a broader audience. However, in Born This Way, Gaga didn't feel the need to break the songs down as far as she did previously.

I think this is smart as it keeps her about 30 paces ahead of the Gaga mimickers who have sprung up during the past two years and the established stars who have transitioned to trying to claim a piece of her thunder (Katy Perry, I love your music too, but your public persona has become more and more Gaga in the past 18 months.)

Gaga really shows off her voice in Born This Way - in a much more clear and resonant manner than she was able to with The Fame. "Marry the Night," "Electric Chapel," "Edge of Glory" and "You and I" are show pieces from this perspective. Electric Chapel and Marry the Night are superb fun to listen to.

In reference to comments in a prior review about "Judas" and "Bloody Mary." The in-your-face parallels in songs like Judas and Bloody Mary are poetic in their power while not getting too broken down in the details of a bad relationship. Judas without the name of Judas as the song would become another cliche about loving someone who always betrays that love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why is this censored? June 8, 2011
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Sadly, the record is censored. I don't think many small children will be purchasing and playing vinyl like this, at least not without the help of their parents.

The cover and sleeves were nicely designed, and aside from the censorship, the records are fine.

The Born this Way CD is incredible. I purchased this set because I didn't have the remix or the DVD so it made sense. I was hoping since the CD was stamped with a Parental Advisory Sticker that the Born This Way album would be unedited. This album is still edited and it is the same CD that came with the Deluxe Edition upon its' first release. Still an incredible album in the little cardboard sleeve that is now comes in (but does include the original booklet). The mixes are ok and the DVD is ok. Played them one time with all the new music and entertainment coming out this month. Just wanted to write a quick review in case anyone was wondering if this is indeed an unedited Born this Way. If I could do it all over since, I already had the Deluxe edition, I would have bought the Remix and DVD separately. Way Sturdier packaging and if I got bored of the DVD I could have sold it on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gaga does everything right May 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
A success. That's all you need to really know. Get it, and get ready to hear tracks from it for the next year or more. I'm not out to address Gaga's history, her personality, or influences, whatever. I'm here to talk about the music, so let's dig into the album. And indeed, I use the word 'album' here after some consideration because this an album. This is not, as one often encounters nowadays in mainstream pop, a smattering of singles spread among a bunch of filler songs that really don't matter. This is an album; every song has its place and purpose, and there are actually no songs that I would toss out as superfluous. Contrary to The Fame, this album actually feels like a statement from Gaga, rather than a couple singles and then padding.

What about the songs? Well, let's be realistic. It's Lady Gaga, so you can expect nothing beyond the basic bass-driven, 4/4 perfect-tempo-for-grinding-at-the-club song over and over again; literally almost every song is at the same tempo, has the same song structure, and is driven by very similar beats (with the obvious exception of You and I). But that's Lady Gaga, and if you're expecting something else, walk back out the door right now, and take your pretensions and snobbery with you.

Let's not quibble about religious allusions, or whether Gaga ripped off so-and-so (SERIOUSLY WHO CARES), or whether Lady Gaga is this or that or whatever. We've already established that this is an album full of simple pop songs, but are they good pop songs? Unambiguously yes. Gaga has an ear for hooks and melodies that very few artists have nowadays. Few people seem to appreciate how incredibly rare and difficult this is; chords and songs are easy compared to melodies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Edited May 25, 2011
By ddagget
Format:Audio CD
I absolutley love Gaga and this album! But, there is one small problem. A few of the songs are edited to bleep out curse words. Nowhere does it say that the album is edited so I was extremly dissapointed to turn it on and hear beeps!!! So, buyer beware!!!!

When it comes to Lady Gaga : everyone exagerates. Firstly her with her outrageous outfits and attitudes, secondly her fans who worship her so much it becomes almost impossible to critize her and of course her haters who seem to have no limits at trying to trash her and ruin her reputation ignoring constantly that she is, no matter what they might say, an innovative artist and a pretty good singer.

Because no matter what people think about her, they can't deny that she has a voice, and what a voice. Sadly, it's often obstructed behind all the electronica and hype but on songs like Marry the night, The edge of glory or You and I, it's pretty obvious.

And when this album was released a few months ago, everyone's reactions to it were over the top as well to say the least so I think it's time to set the record straight.

No, this album is certainly not the album of the decade as she claimed months before its release but it's a good album nevertheless.

She doesn't innovates a lot in here, but in some songs, she did (Americano : daring to mix mexican mariachi with modern techno : who would have ever thought of doing that ?!, Government Hooker : a great modern rhythm like you don't often hear them in pop music, Sheisse : well, this track is strange I know, but it's so much fun !).

What bothers me the most about this album is that a lot of tracks are reminders of ancient Madonna songs, she even tries (and succeed quite well as a matter of fact) to emulate her voice on songs like Bloody Mary or Electric Chapel.

And like in all her previous albums, her influences are quite obvious as well (a little bit of Madonna here, some Cyndi Lauper there, Spagna, Whitney Houston etc...

Born This Way: The Collection Explicit?
That's the thing though, the beeps in Government Hooker are put there by GaGa herself, but the censors in The Queen and Bad Kids aren't. (The Queen: "Whenever I'm feeling strong I'm called a -itch in the night.", Bad Kids: "I'm a -itch, I'm a loser baby maybe I should quit".)... Read More

She's At It Again
No one cares for your poorly formed opinion. If you don't like her, ignore her. She has done a lot with her life, raising awareness for teen suicide and donating her time and money to fight aids. What have you done with your life? I'm guessing nothing. You don't have to like her music, but you... Read More
