The Fame, is the debut album of Dance Pop singer Lady Gaga (Stefanna Germanotta) which hails from the Upper West Side of New York City. It’s figuratively a dance-pop album with electro pop beats smashed with infectious and pretty much heart stomping beats. It’s a feast of those who liked trashy, high fashion but yet sophisticated anthems suited for the rich and the famous. She sings about being famous, living in front of the spotlight and of course, inching her way to the top of her game.
Tracks that caught my ear are “Just Dance” which is probably one of the best dance anthems i’ve heard last year, the much palpable “Poker Face” which is surely as infectious as it might seem to be. The album is filled with some heart-stomping tracks like the riding of the disco-stick “Love Game”, “Starstruck” and “Money Honey”.
Apparently, Lady GaGa’s lyrical creativity isn’t much showing at all, with bullshite lyrics from “Poker Face” (I’m bluffin’ with my muffin, i’m just stunnin’ with my love glue-gunnin’) and the utmost irritating “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” which I literally don’t have an idea where she got it. Although not really that obvious, “GaGa” does have a rich, powerful vocals. But i’m still doubting if she has the capacity to sing ballads like the appaling “Brown Eyes” and the not-so-ballad “Papparazzi”. Her musical style has just been embedded with much flambouyance and angst that I’m sure, many of us might like.
Lady GaGa never failed to demonstrate her amazing personality even letting us feel that she’s some huge popstar created from the trunks of Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera and Madonna. Althought it might be a little bit glittery at times, it’s a solid effort of producing an equally impressive debut album filled with 16 tracks that are hit potentials. It’s an album that is seemingly enjoyable from start to finish. She’s proven her worth of #1 with aplomb.
