Muze PNote Not long into the ceaseless promotional parade for Born This Way, Lady Gaga's second full-length record and easily the most anticipated record of the 2010s, a certain sense of inevitability crept into play. It was inevitable that Born This Way would be an escalation of The Fame, it was inevitable that Gaga would go where others feared to tread, it was inevitable that it would be bigger than any other record thrown down in 2011, both in its scale and success. Gaga has taken it upon herself to filter out whatever personal details remain in her songs so she can write anthems for her Little Monsters, that ragtag group of queers, misfits, outcasts, and rough kids who she calls her own. Whatever performance art shock Gaga had on The Fame/The Fame Monster has turned into pure theater. Her drama club ambition to marry rock & roll rebellion with her disco beats turns Born This Way into Like a Prayer by way of Bat Out of Hell. Gaga has chosen not to dig under the skin. She's quite content to state her themes then let them be, using them as the connecting thread on an `80s pastiche set to a relentless Eurotrash throb. Echoes of Whitney Houston, Pat Benatar, and Bruce Springsteen -- whose longtime running partner Clarence Clemons blows sax on two songs --- can be heard throughout, but it is naturally Madonna who is the cornerstone, giving Gaga the "Express Yourself" melody and a pop precedent for Catholic guilt. Lady Gaga knowingly recontextualizes the Material Girl for a post-modern collage, the sly similarities offering tangible reminders that Gaga is the heir to the diva throne. And Born This Way does solidify her standing as something of a pop visionary. Gaga's true gift is her considerable dexterity at delivering the basics. Unlike so many of her peers, she does not cut and paste her tracks digitally, she constructs from the chords up, then accessorizes at will. She doesn't abandon this sensibility on Born This Way, but she does take it for granted, never pushing her compositions or productions into unpredictable territory. She serves up the expected, which can be quite satisfying: "Marry the Night" glistens with a neon pulse, "Born This Way" has a giddiness to its self-importance, "Judas" turns "Alejandro" into towering gothic disco, she achieves her metal-disco fusion on "Bad Kids," and she even shows vulnerability on "Yo and I." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Expert Review Lady Gaga - Born This Way - CD Review
By: TYRONE S REID Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 5/24/2011 11:31 AM
No-one can deny that Lady Gaga is a workaholic. In the span of three years, the inventive 25-year-old phenom has single-handedly hoisted herself from fledgling ingenue to the perch where she now sits as one of the planet’s instantly recognisable pop successes, boasting multi-platinum record sales, multiple Grammys, consistently sold-out global concerts and rabid supporters (“the little monsters”) who have utterly redefined the term fanbase....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.69)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "BORN THIS WAY is her Eighties arena-rock move, going for maximum goth Catholic bombast....BORN THIS WAY has all the electro-sleaze beats and Euro-disco chants that made her the Fame Monster."

Rolling Stone (p.68)
- Ranked #6 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "BORN THIS WAY saw the dance-pop queen embrace homegrown Eighties schlock pop and Springsteenian romanticism."

Spin (p.30)
- Ranked #29 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "BORN THIS WAY delivers a message that old glamazon Pete Seeger could dig: She thinks pop can still move policy, and she might be right."

Entertainment Weekly (p.110)
- "She brings expert songcraft to each cut -- tectonic chord changes, soaring choruses, and that sawtooth-edged voice..." -- Grade: B

Q (Magazine)
(p.114)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Third single 'The Edge Of Glory' makes for a fitting crescendo, giving full vent to Gaga's torrential tonsils..."
