Probably for diehard Monsters only!
on 10 February 2012
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.
