Review of "Born This Way - Lady Gaga"
Lady GaGa's third album (some call it her second, given "The Fame Monster" was an EP, not a standard album) is a mixture of genres, styles and inspiration. “Born This Way” became a child conceived by the artist’s craziest dreams and the title song, along with “Hair” has become the anthem of the generation: generation of the people who want to be freed from the normalised standards that the society puts on them. For that era in GaGa’s career, she changed her look diametrically, playing with the idea of the monsters. She, indeed, became a monster and ... boy, is she a proud one!Well, yes, I might be a little bit subjective here, as it was the first GaGa's album I was waiting for as I had become her fan just a year before its release. Here is my opinion about the tracks:
“Marry the night”, being the first song on the album (and the last single to be released from it) is the child of GaGa and Fernando Garibay with whom the artist collaborated on her previous album. The song is the perfect introduction to the “Born This Way” era, in which GaGa looked to her darker persona. In the track she introduced her fans to her love of rock music that was connected to electronic tunes. The same idea stands behind “Americano”, “Hair”, “Electric Chapel”, “You and I” or “The Queen” (the track to be found on deluxe edition of the album). Having not lost her pop style, GaGa became more wild with her music on this album. However, the album is the musical journey. The feminist song “Scheisse” is not only the one that in a beat tunes speaks in favour of strong females, but it also is a lot of fun as GaGa tries to use German. In “Bloody Mary”, “Judas” and “Black Jesus + Amen Fashion” the artist goes for biblical inspirations; “Fashion of his love” is the song dedicated to late Alexander McQueen, while “Government Hooker” is inspired by personal life of John F. Kennedy. “Highway Unicorn” is a mixture of fantasy and hard beats.Reassuming, that is a good album, the album of a mature, yet experiencing artist, who at the time both knew what she wanted to achieve and was still looking for her full identity.
