Music Review: Lady GaGa’s “Born This Way”

Lady Gaga has become the latest icon for more than just unity and individualism, but also as “Mother Monster,” after the successful release of her latest album “Born This Way.”

Upon its May 23 release it has seen a whopping one million plus copies sold. Billboard has projected that “Born This Way” will push past Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now,” which sold 1.15 million copies total.

“Born This Way” is Lady Gaga’s second full-length album, excluding her EP, and has to be her most dance-riveting album made yet – from the techno-pop jam “Marry The Night,” to the funk techno in “SchiBe,” then to the dance music in “The Edge of Glory.”

The entire album shows Gaga’s experimental mix that is making music history.

“Marry The Night” gives Gaga’s signature electro-pop sound a screaming intro and the message to be true to oneself. The song really opens up more meaning to the album.

“Judas” gives the album the right amount of dance, helping make the album a success. “The Edge of Glory” ends the album in an anthem style.

Of course there’s “Born This Way.” It didn’t take long for this song to be a chart topper, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The message behind the song mixed with the beat makes it more than just a hit but a peak in the album.

Those who have enjoyed “The Fame” as well as “The Fame Monster” will be highly amazed with “Born This Way.”
