CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

Born This Way is an assault of theatrics and 80s throwback. It’s fun, it’s cheesy, it’s everything a mainstream pop album should be.

70
musicOMH

Born This Way's failure is that it tends to leave Lady Gaga behind in its quest for chart supremacy.

70
Drowned in Sound

Born This Way essentially finds Gaga doing more of the same but with a few new production tricks.

60
Consequence of Sound

Born This Way, then, is Gaga’s attempt to be more than just a pop culture phenomenon, a move toward the upper echelons of pop stardom.

60
No Ripcord

Born This Way isn’t a bad album by any means, it’s just that Gaga is so conscious of the image and message she projects that the music is no longer her top priority.

50
PopMatters

Born This Way is one mighty confused pop album, fusing some daring songwriting with some remarkably repetitive themes and beats.

With her 2nd album we have again sounds that remind us the '80s. A revolutionary album for 2011.

The album has some issues. It's cohesive sonically, but not conceptually. It's length seemed to bore some. It's over-simplified LGBT ideology lost her fans on both sides of the issue. Some found fault with the Reagan-era pop stylings, a departure from her earlier sound. Regardless, the album is surprisingly great. After a few listens, I forget the issues I had with it, and just ride off into the sunset. Cuz I'm a free bitch, baby.

It's an overproduced album. This is a great example that less is more
