Format: Audio CD
Lady Gaga is no cookie cutter plastic pop star in the likes that mainstream is so used to seeing. Her image is edgy and the music on this album is heavy brilliant innovative pop with dark lyrics and powerful messages. Wether at a party or a club, one can't ignore how fast dance floors fill when Gaga's songs come on, but the thing that I love the most about these powerful dance floor anthems are the thought process and the meanings behind them.

1. Bad Romance - a song about being in love with your friend and wanting absolutely everything from them, even their ugly and their most deepest darkest part of them that they think nobody else would like, but also about that relationship being in such a state of convolution that ends up being detrimental and feels like they could write a bad romance novel out of it. The way she references Hitchcock movies during the second verse is absolutely genius! Overall a powerful dark dance anthem 10/10

2. Alejandro - This song is about the fear of sex and intimacy. How your past lovers can hurt you and ruin you for anyone that comes after them. That's the dilemma between Gaga and Alejandro, as much as Gaga loves him she just can't be with him because she's afraid to get hurt again. "And all those flames that burned before him/ Now he's gotta firefight gotta cool the bad" is one of my favorite lines of the song. It explains how Alejandro tries to fight against the resistance she puts up. Overall this is one of my most favorite songs on the album, there are so many addicting layers to and it somewhat reminds me of ABBA and Swedish music which I love! 10/10

There was no mention either on Amazon or on the CD case that this album was edited/censored! "Bitc*" just doesn't sound natural as "bit." Period. If the record companies are going to continue to censor albums that I shelled out my hard-earned money for, I will have no qualms nor any feeling of emotional turmoil or moral dilemma downloading uncensored bootlegged versions for free instead and keeping my cash. Record/releasing companies: Release the unedited album now and at no additional cost to those of us who already bought this censored garbage!

Yes, this CD is edited, but the unedited version will be released online in December. I've gone through many of the different blogs and it looks like GaGa had a slight disagreement with the record company who wanted the songs to be censored. Don't worry, the uncensored versions of all of these awesome songs will be released soon enough. Personally, I think the music is awesome either way. A great album.

I am shocked that Lady GaGa would allow her label to put out these terrible censored version of her songs. Although the songs are great, do support this album until a proper version is released. It is NOT amazon's fault, it is the record label. (although perhaps amazon should indicate the songs are edited to avoid any confusion or anger) This is the only version available. DO NOT BUY this unless you want one of those ridiculous sounding edited albums that Wal-Mart is always selling. FREEDOM OF SPEECH. LOOK IT UP! IT'S IN THE THING.

This is truly an amazing album and worth every penny, but don't make the same mistake thousands are making right now. These versions are all censored on Bad Romance, Dance in the Dark, and Monster. Cherry Tree however announced that they will be releasing the uncensored tracks ASAP. The announcement was made via the Cherry Tree Twitter account.

Have patience. The best is yet to come.

NOTE: Do not blame Amazon for sending you the wrong CD because as of this posting an uncensored version does NOT exist.

The lyrics are censored on this version even with the [Explicit] tag on the music.
Waste of money.

I was excited to purchase this album. Lady Gaga is simply awesome! But if you're going to release it CENSORED, it's not going to HELP album sales, it's going to HURT album sales. Censorship is for Wal-Mart! Censorship is unnecessary, and there's a segment of the population who WILL NOT TOLERATE OR SUPPORT it! I'm one of those. Release an uncensored version, or I'll find a pirated one. It's that simple. Lady Gaga, at this point, you should consider switching labels. There's not one who wouldn't want you. I luv ya.

This deluxe "art book" package of Lady Gaga's "The Fame Monster" IS very nice, and is worth it for collectors, but I agree, they should have used this set as a golden opportunity to domestically release the 3 international bonus tracks..."Disco Heaven", "Again Again", and "Retro Dance Freak" (are there more songs I don't know about??), maybe the Christmas sex track "Christmas Tree" in proper CD form, cool import-only remixes, and NON-edited versions of the songs...there could have also been a DVD of all her videos to date included, as well as unreleased live footage??

Personally, I'd buy the Japanese edition of TFM first for the bonus tracks, and unedited versions, and if I see this set at a reduced price later on, I might spring for it...as what's included is pretty cool...but extra songs to me are more important than a lock of 1 of Gaga's wigs, paperdolls and puzzles.

Again, nice package, but it'll be for later...cheers!!

Which Cover
I like the blonde cover... something about it fits the title better. She kind of looks like a Muppet. I'm glad she fought to make it a separate release, too - I have my issues with her antics, but I do think she's a very talented woman who genuinely cares about her fans.

I really enjoyed the... Read More

Madonna or Gaga? Who's the bigger icon?
Madonna has been around for 30 years.. that should answer the question.
