Chromatica gives the impression that Lady is at a crossroads, because we feel at the same time the ambition to make an overly hyper-pop album, but on the other hand it's as if she doesn't really want to play the role of Gaga again.

Whether you like the character and her music or not, Lady Gaga has transformed the pop landscape considerably. It's hard to imagine what pop would be like without her, it's so immeasurable. And I don't think that's an exaggeration. In fact, what I've always liked ... read more

Gaga In Your Area.

When you're no longer pushing pop boundaries and instead resorting to cheap, sterile nostalgia for ineffectual party bangers, just how quickly does the formula begin to wear thin? The pop diva's latest collection of pop tunes attempt at capturing the catchy, anthemic glory of her Fame Monster days, but severely lacks the intriguing pop presence that defined those iconic pop hits to begin with. Chromatica's aspirant, loud party anthems are instead derivative, stark pop songs ... read more

And with the bots...comes the fun police.

This is the fun police. I am here to tell you that this new Lady Gaga album could have been better. Stop having fun. This is...not...fun....Stop it......

Oh fuck it, I can't keep the charade up much longer! I liked this album, just a little!

Lady Gaga (even though my relationship with mainstream pop in my reviews has been...negative at best) is an artist that I really do genuinely love. Her presence, her live shows, her identity, her sound and ... read more

Even Lady Gaga has a bot clan now? Bruh..

But anyways, to keep it brief: Chromatica is eeeeeehhhhhhh quite bad. Which comes as really sad to me because this album has many admirable things going for it, and it's clear that Gaga really went ambitious with this one.

Mainstream Pop veteran Lady Gaga comes with a new project, relatively fresh off the A Star is Born thingy, and it's honestly what one would expect a 2020 Lady Gaga album to be like. Not to knock her abilities off the table or ... read more

Dearest Lady Gaga stans, we are not here to sabotage your precious album. We're actually here on this website for music criticism to do, well, exactly that. Art is subjective and music is art. Therefore, music is subjective. Now, on to the actual review.

So, "Chromatica" is alright. I'm actually surprised at how much I actually enjoyed some of it. Some of my favorites from the record, "Sine from Above", "911", "Enigma" and "Alice", are all ... read more

Lady Gaga just pressed RESET on her career and constructed a WHOLE NEW WORLD of pop music. I'm beyond impressed, and I'll be the first one to say that I don't give a single FUCK, to the indie pseudo edgy users of this website, this is everything I've EVER WANTED from Gaga since day one!!!! BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR. I wanna dance and cry to these songs till the day I die........

Consistente!!!!!

Os fãs e pessoas que acompanharam toda carreira de Lady GaGa sabe de todas as origens da cantora e entendem o quanto ela se dedicou para fazer com que suas eras fossem todas extremamente especiais. Dentro da era "Chromatica" nós temos uma retrospectiva de todos os álbuns e trabalhos da Gaga desde o "The Fame" ao "Cheek to Cheek".

A estética da era é linda e muito bem trabalhada, é um auge e um marco ... read more

F*CK, this is stuffed full of bangers, love the production and Gaga's voice.
The most fun I've had listening to an album in a long time.
Edit: I know that this album isn't very innovative and it doesn't give off big brain energy, but I find this really fun. Even more fun than the other highly rated pop stuff this year.

A real disco so hot, but still lacks something that has essential Lady Gaga. I see good and well produced beats, but much of it ends up being exaggerated but still does not lose its magic. I missed productions like Mark Ronson, but it's not a point where he sinned and where I find the best tracks on the album and in the end and their partnerships stand out. Gaga's vocals are impeccable, and I remembered a lot of a strong, powerful woman. It is noticed that the album was worked in detail, and ... read more

Chromatica é um álbum que na minha opinião leva demasiado hate, a maioria das músicas aqui são sólidas e divertidas, a posição das músicas é coesa além de trazer uma produção teatral e ambiciosa (mesmo que não chegue ao seu máximo potencial), as interludes complementam ainda mais o projeto e traz o retorno da Gaga a sons mais dançantes e energéticos que são os seus ... read more

Ok, I defended artpop, I liked Joanne, but this... I can't, this is bullshit really, it's not good, almost all songs sound like they are the same, I am really sad about it because I really really reeeally wanted to like gaga's new album

Very good album.

I think this is my favorite Lady Gaga album. "Chromatica" beyond just being an album, as she described it is a world, in which Gaga tells you many things. I love how the album is structured by 3 acts. The songs are super catchy, danceable, and quite entertaining.

Favorite tracks: Alice, Stupid Love, Rain On Me, Free Woman, Fun Tonight, 911, Plastic Doll, Sour Candy, Replay, Sine From Above, 1000 Doves, Babylon.

Least favorite track: Enigma.

Why this sounds like a playlist from H&M?

Eu demorei pra chegar em uma conclusão sobre esse álbum, mas depois de ouvir diversas vezes, eu finalmente cheguei em uma opinião concreta...
O álbum tinha um conceito promissor, a própria GaGa disse o que cada cor significava, e que o Chromatica é a visão ao qual ela possui sobre o mundo, a própria tbm disse que queria passar mensagens simples porém contagiantes, e que cada assunto abordado no álbum é o que ela ... read more

The greatest issue with Lady Gaga in 2020 is that her music sounds almost identical to her work in 2008 and beyond. Gaga has been willing to vary her sound from the maximalistic dance-pop she was born out of, but her return to it gives Chromatica a stale feeling throughout. It's this undeniable sense that everything on the album I have heard before, and I am likely to hear again.

This is a shame, really, given the level of talent coming out of pop today willing to push those boundaries ... read more

Edit: This has grown on me a little bit. (Original score was a 65)

Original Review:

This is a decent album, but a disappointing release for sure. Where an album like Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia succeeded in expanding on classic pop formulas, this album feels like it just IS a classic pop formula. The production is decent, but the songs just feel a little flat and underwritten. It’s not bad, just disappointingly average.

Fav Tracks: Alice, Stupid Love, Rain On Me, Free Woman, ... read more

It could just be me, but I think Chromatica consistently has possibly the worst bridges. The robotic rap in Alice, the disjointed spoken-sung break down in Rain On Me, the prolonged reverby snares over repetitive vocals on 911, the build-up over her awkwardly delivered vocals on Enigma, along with just about every song. What makes it worse is that it's the same thing every time, a couple verses, a couple choruses, then a really weak or just downright bad bridge that it supposed to hype the song ... read more

I'm rewriting this review since my opinion on this album has changed quite a bit. I still think Chromatica is a great pop album with electrifying dance tunes and Lady Gaga's most focused record to date, but I think some of the songs did not age that well. A lot of the beats on here sound super groovy, energetic and fun, but at points the production feels a bit generic and repetitive with all the buildups and EDM drops. However, I still admire the fact that this album tells a story and is really ... read more

Chromatica é o sexto album de estúdio da Lady Gaga, e marca seu retorno a famosa "farofa" musical, esse é um album que certamente vai agradar e divertir muitas pessoas, principalmente seus fãs mais antigos, a sonoridade que o album passa é bem contagiante e dançante, e isso é algo que a Gaga sempre fez de melhor, as letras desse album em sua maioria são boas e bem escritas, porém o album erra em certos momentos em suas ... read more

“Chromatica” marca o “retorno” de Lady Gaga a uma vertente mais voltada pro Pop em comparação aos seus lançamentos anteriores; Joanne (2016) e A Star is Born Soundtrack (2018). Lançado oficialmente em 29 de Maio, o sexto disco da artista, reúne 16 músicas trabalhadas de uma forma muito interessante de analisar e refletir.

O álbum é dividido em três partes separadas por interlúdios (*Chromatica I), ... read more
