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.

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

There is an invigorating feel of triumph through self identity in Born This Way (evident in the title track, Hair, Bad Kids), but then Gaga throws curveballs with love affairs (Heavy Metal Lover, Yoü And I, Judas) and raunchy dancehall anthems in different languages (Americano, Scheiße). This album ultimately has an awesome bad-ass feel to it, but there's hardly any connection.

From the top of the pop world, she's enjoying her transient gold status.
