Admittedly this isn't necessarily my type of music, being more of an indie/rock fan but I'm a fan of good pop music too and as everyone seems to rave about Lady Gaga I thought I'd give this a try.

Needless to say, it's unlikely to become a regular listen for me.

I wanted to like this album as I had heard some of her new songs on the radio and thought they sounded ok. Turns out they work best on the radio where they are interspersed with other songs by other artists. Listening to the whole thing felt kind of wearing and while there were no songs I actively disliked, I can't think of a standout track either, as they all sounded kind of samey.

Also, in spite of… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 Aug 2010
I suppose it was always going to be difficult to follow The Time Traveler's Wife. But frankly, even judging this book on its own merits and ignoring Audrey Niffenegger's previous novel this book is strangely lacking.

On the face of it the Her Fearful Symmetry has potential.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Little Bit Random, 16 Aug 2010
This compilation confuses me lots. I'm assuming that each song on this compilation is supposed to be 'epic' in some way but I can't work out what the criteria are. Someone in the music industry has a very different idea of 'epic' to me.

There are some fundamentally bizarre choices on here. When did 'This Ain't A Love Song' by Scouting For Girls become an epic song? To my mind it's a fairly generic pop song that no one will remember in ten years time. Whose definition of epic involves songs that could also be described as bland? And besides, this song was only released in March, which raises other questions. I'd be reluctant to label any song as 'epic' unless it had stood the test… Read more
