CRITIC REVIEWS

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.

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.

Muitos já tentaram como, por exemplo, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Whitney Houston, Madonna, entre outros, mas não obtiveram ... read more

I was rather impressed with some of the tracks on this album. I think it does a good job (as does the movie) of presenting two types of songwriting while not overvaluing either. The album consists of country-twinged stadium rock and electro-pop with a little musical theater mixed in. Lady Gaga sounds incredible no matter the genre, and even Bradley Cooper does a surprisingly good job!

What I find interesting about this album is it has some of the most infectious pop songs Gaga has written in ... read more
