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.
Born This Way's failure is that it tends to leave Lady Gaga behind in its quest for chart supremacy.
Born This Way essentially finds Gaga doing more of the same but with a few new production tricks.
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.
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.
Born This Way is one mighty confused pop album, fusing some daring songwriting with some remarkably repetitive themes and beats.
