The Evolution of Gaga

Listening to The Fame and that album is primitive as fuck. Too synth heavy and her voice was still very girlish and unformed. A year later she came out with Bad Romance and The Fame Monster and blew everyone away. A much better produced album than The Fame, with zero filler at just 8 songs.

Born This Way (2011) is the album that cemented Gaga as an icon. It is effusively the essence of Gaga: loud, brash, offbeat and emotional.

ARTPOP (2013) was an experiment in noise. Spotty and all over the place. 6/10 at best, but it has some bright moments.

Joanne (2016) is Gaga's most forgettable album but it yielded her best ballad, Million Reasons. Joanne, along with A Star is Born (2018) saw Gaga returning to her true roots as the girl playing piano ballads in New York City bars.

Chromatica (her sixth album released in 2020) is a good example of her evolution as an artist and person. Her voice is clear, vibrant, and raw – there's even a "punk growl" that emerges. She manages to make the very personal universal. It's an album full of feeling: fear, anxiety, joy and sadness, and the dead throb of depression. It expounds on Born This Way and generally magnifies her best musical moments. Gaga became a musical genius with this record.

It will be interesting to follow Gaga as she continues to evolve as an artist and to see where she goes, and to see where she takes her talent, but more importantly, her expression.

Interesting video posted by Rob Fusari, the producer who worked with her on early songs like Paparazzi.

She's so evolved that she should take the next 50-70 years off so everyone else can catch up.

Wow, Datalounge really can't stand Gaga. She is the opposite of a DL fave (DL pariah?)

People are really pressed by her immense talent

No shortage of bad taste, R6 lol. I'm sure they don't like Eyelash either, but with Gaga you get silence or rabid hatred

Wasn't that the guy who raped her?

by Anonymousreply 1005/03/2021

Yeah R10, but they also dated. There was also another singer he was working with named Lina Morgana who fell to her death from a hotel rooftop. Gaga fans joke that she pushed the girl! 🤣
