If you are a Lady Gaga fan (aka Little Monster), then you already know that she came out with the Born This Way Standard Edition CD on May 23rd. She also came out with a special edition 2 disc Born This Way the same day. When I saw the chance to do a review and giveaway of her newest album, I got very excited. I’ve been a fan of hers since she did “Just Dance” which I heard during my first semester of college. Although, I resisted buying Fame and purchased Fame Monster my sophomore year of college. So, needless to say, I was very happy to receive her newest stuff. In case you’ve somehow managed to miss seeing or hearing her, below is the video for the song “Born This Way”. I think it’s a very artistic piece (btw: the actual music doesn’t begin until 2:30 or so).
Since I already own and listen to her previous stuff, I think I can give a fair and true review. Most of the cd consists of some of my newest favorite songs to dance to! In that sense, it was exactly what I expected – good beats that I enjoy. However, the lyrics/tone of the album is a bit more deep/controversial than her past songs. For instance, “Judas” has lyrics about Judas being the demon she clings to. I like the feeling of “Government Hooker” (just so you know, the cd you can win is edited – so the cuss words are beeped out). One of my favorite songs from the album is “Bloody Mary”. I like its beat and the lyrics about dancing with my hands above my head. It just puts me in a good mood. My boyfriend likes “The Edge of Glory”.
I really, really like this cd. I know that some people do not appreciate her art or lyrics. However, I’m a big fan and really like her newest stuff. I’ve been listening to this cd several times a day for over a week now, if that tells you anything. There’s not really a song I don’t like, just songs I like more than others.
