5.0 out of 5 stars Born This Way: The Remix
This Remix album is great version of Lady GaGa's 2nd studio album "Born This Way". The opening remix of "Born This Way" is the same-titled single which was remixed by Zedd. Zedd did great job on remixing the track and made the song even more club playable. If you search for good club/dance music you should buy that compilation. If you are a DJ and you are searching for a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably for diehard Monsters only!
It's very difficult to criticise the musical powerhouse that is Gaga, given that she does produce EXCEPTIONALLY good pop songs and rarely fails to hit the mark, but this album is really something that only diehard Monsters would appreciate. The lyrics of the remixes may be the same, but a lot of them lack the "stick in your head" catchiness of the original versions...

It's very difficult to criticise the musical powerhouse that is Gaga, given that she does produce EXCEPTIONALLY good pop songs and rarely fails to hit the mark, but this album is really something that only diehard Monsters would appreciate. The lyrics of the remixes may be the same, but a lot of them lack the "stick in your head" catchiness of the original versions. Whilst it's interesting to hear different interpretations of the music, and to discover how up-tempo tracks can be turned into ballads or different music genres entirely, there aren't really any stand-out tracks on here and certainly nothing that warrants more than a couple of listens to. It's more experimental than the music Gaga has become famous for, and this would probably have been better as part of a 2-disc special version of the album rather than a standalone CD, but if you're looking to explore the many different facets of Gaga as an artist then this album is as good a place as any to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Born This Way: The Remix, 16 Feb 2012
This review is from: Born This Way - The Remix (Audio CD)
This Remix album is great version of Lady GaGa's 2nd studio album "Born This Way". The opening remix of "Born This Way" is the same-titled single which was remixed by Zedd. Zedd did great job on remixing the track and made the song even more club playable. If you search for good club/dance music you should buy that compilation. If you are a DJ and you are searching for a good remixes you should get the remixes from this album. The "Judas" remixes (from Goldfrapp and Hurts) are really original and sound really different from the album version. The remixes for "The Edge Of Glory" (by Foster The People and Sultan & Ned Shepard) are just made for the clubs! Maybe you should probably skip the "You And I" remixes (by Wild Beasts and Metronomy), but you should definitely hear "The Weeknd and Illangelo" remix for the single "Marry the night", which is really great. I would skip just one more remix - the remix for "Bloody Mary" (by The Horrors). The remixes for Black Jesus (by Michael Woods), Scheisse (Guena LG) and Americano (by Gregori Klosman) have the perfect sound for a House party. The "Electric Chapel" remix (by Two Door Cinema Club) is really interesting representation of the original version and you should hear it. The Twin Shadow remix for "Born This Way" brings retro sound to the song. Great Remix album with great sound!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some nice remixes..., 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born This Way - The Remix (Audio CD)
I'm a bit disappointed of this compilation. While there are some nice remixes, most of the tracks are boring club remixes that repeat over and over only few words of the song. The best remixes in my opinion are those who really give a new twist to the original song (like "Marry the Night" (The Weeknd & Illangelo remix), "Judas" (Goldfrapp remix) and "Born This Way" (Twin Shadow remix)) or remixes that are funny to dance ("Scheisse" Guena LG Club remix)). The rest of songs in this compilation are very boring, cutting away most of the appeal of the original songs. I preferred the first remixes collection by Lady Gaga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised!, 25 Nov 2011
This review is from: Born This Way - The Remix (Audio CD)
I'm personally, not a massive fan of remixes, they normally ruin songs, by dragging them out to over 6/7 minutes in length and playing the same monotonous beat, So I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this album, most of the songs are around the four minute mark expect the "The Edge Of Glory" remixes which are spectacular regardless of them being around 6 minutes long.

I think it's definitely worth a listen, lots of different producers have remixed the tracks, ranging from European Duo "Hurts" (who have done an amazing job on Judas) to American indie band Foster The Kicks, so no two remixes sound the same.

Some great re-mixes on this. Listen a few times and the ones you're not so keen on will grow on you (well, it worked for me!) A must for GAGA fans.

Slightly annoyed that some remixes are from other ep's but still, really good! I like the fact that Gaga gave other not so well known artists a chance

3.0 out of 5 stars Lady Gaga's remix albums don't live up to her standard, 20 Dec 2011
This review is from: Born This Way - The Remix (Audio CD)
Lady Gaga's remix albums for some reason don't live up to the standard she sets for her regular albums, that's a real shame since her songs are made to be remixed...
