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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Truly evolves and expands the original album. Definitely some of the weirdest and experimental tracks I have listened to and I loved them. The remixes adds the flavour that I felt like the original album was missing.

favourites: Replay (Dorian Electra Remix), 911 (Charli XCX & A. G. Cook Remix), Free Woman (Rina Sawayama & Clarence Clarity Remix)

this is a lateral move from the original chromatica, held back by some remixes that don't work as well as the original - love the Free Woman, Babylon, Plastic Doll, and Replay remixes though
