Born This Way – Album Review

Marry The Night

A great starter track for a new album, very catchy and
covered in synths, guitars and Gaga’s amazing voice
8/10

Born This Way
I’m not a fan of this track, the music is good but the lyrics are
not the best and seem a little “cashing in the pink pound” for
my liking.
4/10

Goverment Hooker
Yes Yes Yes! This is the stuff I love Gaga for, dark, bassy,
heavy and dirty! Hoooooo-keeerrrr!
9/10

Judas
I’m in love with Judas! I remember when this track got
released on iTunes and I just went “YES!”. This song is typical
Gaga, there are similarities between this and Bad Romance
but not too much to hold it back!
8/10

Americano
Oooo! This is different, this song makes me think of Spanish
street parties, really like this one, didn’t think I would when it
first started playing but it really works!
8/10

Hair
I just can’t get in to this one, a song about being like your
hair….
4/10

Schei├če
“I don’t speak German but I can if you like!” says Gaga as a
German lyric is repeated as the song grows larger – I had
heard a mix of this track a few months ago and had been
waiting to hear the full version, it’s alright but I think I was
expecting more from it – that said I think it will probably grow
on me!
6/10

Bloody Mary
This song is slower than a lot of the others on the album –
there are moments when Gaga’s vocals sound almost
Madonnaesque during the chorus which isn’t a bad thing,
really like this one!
8/10

Bad Kids
This should have been the first track to be released from the
album, this could and should have replaced Born This Way –
this one is spiked with elements of 90’s rave orchestra hits,
nice one!
8/10

Highway Unicorn (Road 2 Love)
This is very ravey to begin with and Gaga’s deep voice is
used more throughout the track which can’t be bad!
7/10

Heavy Mental Lover
I think this is the song that features on Gagavision episodes,
dark synthy beats and a distorted and auto-tuned Gaga
blend perfectly.
7/10

Electric Chapel
I swear I thought this was Madonna when it first started, this
reminds me so much of her – I can even imagine her singing it
– you’ll see what I mean! Catchy number this one!
8/10

U&I
I’ve heard this done live many times and loved it, this stays
faithful to those versions and adds some beats heard in
Queen’s We Will Rock You – it’s a rock song!
8/10

The Edge Of Glory
This showcases Gaga’s voice well and just builds the music
around it perfectly, a good choice of song to end the album,
the edge of glory – what comes after this – knowing
Gaga….who knows!?
8/10
