CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

All the songs make sense narratively and on their own, so they hold together well and would amount to a first-rate soundtrack, if it weren't for those meddling dialogue tracks, which wind up sapping any kind of momentum for the album.

The Guardian

Bradley Cooper shows he can sing as well as act and direct but it is Lady Gaga’s pop prowess that lifts each track, be it spectacular piano ballads or heart-rending duets.

80
Rolling Stone

Its most powerful moments are among the best of Gaga’s career.

NME

Overall ... A Star is Born is one of the best Hollywood soundtracks of recent years. Far from being Oscar bait, these are songs that could feasibly shine on their own – and ones that feel entirely believable.

Consequence of Sound

There’s real joy in this music — real pleasure in the making of art. Bradley Cooper is a delightful surprise, and Lady Gaga adds to her legend.

Pitchfork

At its peaks, the album delivers on the promise of its star-wattage with some of the most affecting and emotionally overwhelming pop songs of the year.

The Telegraph

On its own terms, A Star Is Born makes for a very peculiar album, mixing grunge, Americana, country, soft-rock Seventies power ballads and slick modern digital RnB performed by a 21st-century pop powerhouse and a middle-aged actor singing in public for the first time.

Slant Magazine

There’s undoubtedly a strong 10-song album lodged at the core of A Star Is Born, but unlike the film, wherein an outsized sense of sentimentality is rendered affecting by the more grounded performances, there’s not nearly enough substance here to justify all the bombast.
