Biggest disappointment in any of the hundreds of CDs I own. Some songs should never be remixed and listening to these is like hearing fingernails being scraped on a chalkboard. If I go to hell after I die, this music will be on the tracks playing endlessly in the corridors.
When I bought this cd, I was hoping for some fun remixes of my favorite Gaga music. Unfortunately, I cannot listen to the remixes on this cd. I enjoy dance music, and I thoroughly enjoy Gaga, but the remixes twist Gaga's music into songs that are hard to recognize as originally hers. The distortion of her voice, the wacky rhythms, and the twisted melodies make this a cd I no longer listen to.
If you're a die-hard Lady Gaga fan, you'll probably want this disc for your collection, and if you're a casual fan, it's an inexpensive album to jam to on occasion, so why not buy it? That being said, though, it's definitely not a must-have.
The concept itself for a Gaga remix album is a good one, but I have no idea why these particular mixes were the ones chosen. There are FAR SUPERIOR remixes that were unfortunately left off, such as the Demolition Crew remix of "Paparazzi" and the Robots to Mars remix of "Lovegame."
There are a few gems on here, however. The Stuart Price remix of "Paparazzi" is a good one as it features different studio vocals. Also, the Sound of Arrows remix of "Alejandro" is an interesting softer version of the original we all know and love. Not to mention, to my knowledge, the remixes of "Eh Eh," "The Fame," and "Dance in the Dark" have not been available in the U.S. before this release, which is a definite plus.
I was also disappointed in the packaging. There are no photographs at all in the booklet besides the cover, and there aren't any liner notes besides a re-listing of the tracks with their respective producers. It's somewhat shabby for a Gaga release, but you get what you pay for. All-in-all, this isn't really a disc that one would miss very much by not purchasing it, but it is still a good one to own for the few decent tracks that are on it.
