This remix compilation is an excuse to adore Lady Gaga for her abilities as a cultural curator, one of this generation’s few – only – true interstellar pop talents.

AllMusic

Presented as the daring and liberated sibling to a more traditional predecessor, Dawn of Chromatica unlocks an expanded world of potential and reminds her legion of Little Monsters that she still has a finger on the pulse and isn't afraid to take risks once in a while.

Gotta be among the weirdest and most admirable remix albums to hit the mainstream.

Pitchfork

A remix album of Lady Gaga’s 2020 dancefloor epic is less a wall-to-wall collection of club bangers than an expansion of the Chromatica cinematic universe.

Slant Magazine

If Lady Gaga’s Chromatica favored pop hooks over musical invention, many of the versions on Dawn of Chromatica are just plain tuneless.

Lady Gaga nunca esteve tão bem acompanhada em toda sua carreira.

Em 'Dawn of Chromatica' ela assume de vez a vanguarda da música pop — coisa que tentou fazer no ARTPOP, mas acabou não acertando na fórmula experimental usada por ela na época —, porém, após a brecha na pista de dança ter sido aberta ano passado, mesmo com a recepção mediana do então 'Chromatica', tudo veio a mudar agora, uma vez que os ... read more

Deeped in acid and completely absorbing, the 'Dawn of Chromatica' is a remix album that managed to outshine the original work.

The subgenres go from hyperpop to eurodance, to piserô (which is a brazilian ... read more

lmao i don't get why so many chromatica fans are hating on this, every single song is WAY MORE interesting than any of the originals, it's not great, of course the album does have its weak moments (mainly sour candy and enigma imo), however some of these songs are better than anything gaga released since artpop.

now a bangers list: rain on me, free woman, fun tonight, 911, replay, sine from above

Although this album is filled with the possibility to recolor what I consider to be true masterpieces, many of the slots were wasted with meaningless remixes. Unfortunately, the Haus Labs remix of Babylon was a major disappointment, due to how much hype surrounded it for over a year, only for fans to be let down with an unoriginal and seemingly thoughtless product. I think it says a lot about Bloodpop’s character. However, these blemishes do not take away from the fact that stellar ... read more
