Album Review: Lady Gaga

It's a shame most of Born This Way is designed to appeal to the easily amused foot-tapping twelve year olds and/or socially bemused "little monsters" looking for some sort of weird, sexually ambiguous icon to rally them with a generic battle cry (Gaga's base). Her most elating work has always been filled with hooks we didn't see coming (until they haunted our commutes) or simple yet strange phrases now permanently ingrained in the fabric of the collective conscious as Gaga-isms worth knowing ("Bad Romance" and "Paparazzi" to name a few). Those songs were, on first listen, odd and enticing, and later, realized as "hits" in the truest sense. Unfortunately on Born This Way only half the songs make the enticing cut, and beyond them, almost none to the level of ubiquitous joy that the Lady has achieved with her Fame Monster persona.
