CD REVIEW - Lady Gaga - The Fame Monster

Tuesday, November 24 2009 1:33PM
With her ever-growing popularity and unstoppable creative mind, we can’t be surprised Lady Gaga as decided not to wait in order to have enough material before releasing an entire new album, giving record sellers yet just another reason to put something new from her on their shelves. Like title announces, The Fame Monster is an extension of her previously released record The Fame, only this time with the addition of some unreleased songs, meshing perfectly with the material already created by the enigmatic diva.
In order to round-up perfectly these 8 new songs (35 minutes of listen in total), the diva decided to incorporate the pieces to the ones found on her first album and re-release the song set in a limited edition double CD album! This way, fans who had waited until now to get to The Fame, and those who had gotten the album at its first release, can now enjoy this maxi-album. And, of course, it comes just in time for the Holiday Season.

Follow-ups to Poker Face and
Just Dance
The first single to be released off the The Fame Monster album, Bad Romance has proven to be a huge hit on both the radio waves and on the Web with the video clip.

Proof that songs Just Dance and Poker Face were more than just momentary successes, singer and hit maker Lady Gaga is back for more.

Although the album title The Fame Monster grossly refers to past success by fame artist Madonna in the 80s, it still proves to be destined for the same planetary hit: radio waves and dance floors combined! Same for the album single Dance in the Dark which in itself is not spectacular but very efficient in its conception.

As well for the duet recorded with none other than Beyoncé, song Telephone is assured to reach the top of the charts. Nonetheless, it’s with songs such as Speechless, a slow ballad with an intro reminiscent of The Beatles and Teeth that we can truly appreciate Lady Gaga’s talent for intricate song composition and creativity.

Other songs, less prolific, like Alejandro, where the Lady explores a more comical approach to song writing remind us more of Ace of Base than the actual pop music hit makers the diva seems to be emulating in her other compositions. But nothing to serious to take away the brilliantness that is The Fame Monster.

All in all, The Fame Monster as revealed to be a made-for-the-dance floor record, just gutsy enough to still be played on the radio waves and dominate the music charts.
