Fantastic album - going to be HUGE

Lady Gaga - Born This Way
Five of five stars (because six is impossible)

Lady Gaga has once again broken new ground and proven herself a pop superstar to be reckoned with. This album is going to just explode. Born This Way is one CD that incorporates the best of many different influences, mainly electronic and dance.

Highlights include the three singles you already know ("Edge of Glory," "Born This Way" and "Judas") as well as the title track, the aggro-tech-tinged "Government Hooker" and "Schei├če," the retro-Madonna-esque "Fashion of His Love," "Electric Chapel," which smacks a bit of Goldfrapp, and Gaga's love song to her Nebraska beau, "You and I," easily one of her best tracks ever. That's a lot of highlights for one album. She set the bar high with The Fame, but any Gaga fan will be extremely pleased with this purchase. Highly recommended.
