Product Description

2008 debut album from the New York singer. On The Fame, it's as if Gaga took two parts Dance-Pop, one part Electro-Pop, and one part Rock with a splash of Disco and burlesque and generously poured it into the figurative martini glasses of the world in an effort to get everyone drunk with her Fame. 'The Fame is about how anyone can feel famous,' she explains. 'Pop culture is art. It doesn't make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over The Fame. But, it's a sharable fame. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle.'

Even though 22 year old Joanne Stefani Germanotta (Lady Gaga) has been singing and performing for more than half of her life, she really stepped into the limelight in April of this year with the release of the incredibly popular number 1 smash hit "Just Dance". Lady Gaga was originally signed to another record label but was dropped after a few months (whoever made that decision would be easy to recognize-they're the person with the red butt-from kicking themselves in it) but she eventually ended up working as a writer and studio support person with some guy named Akon(?) and within a short time her talent shone through like a lighthouse and she became the one in the recording booth. This CD was released this past summer and as hot as "Just Dance" was, the recent release of "Poker Face" blew the top off the charts-again. To her credit, every single song on this album is fantastic. In comparison, I just heard the new Britney Spears album and guess what-it's absolute crap. Britney CANNOT sing, and without 50 layers of vocal effects on her voice she would sound like air passing though the open end of a balloon. Do you know why they called Britney's album "Circus"? Because "As Crazy as a Bag of Hammers" was too long a title! Contrastingly, this album is definitely the strongest pop/dance release from a female artist this year, putting Lady Gaga in the same league as Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce. Songs such as "Eh Eh", "Paparazzi" and "Summerboy" show just how multi-dimensional Lady Gaga is. There's a lot of variety and creativity in the tracks on this CD and Lady's musical skills are second to none. The two things that separate this disc from some of the other recent pop releases are 1-substance and 2-quality.Read more ›

I need to be honest here.

When Lady Gaga first burst onto the scene in 2008 with 'Just Dance', my initial response to her was not the greatest.

Infact, I could not stand her.

However, as I heard more singles from 'The Fame' - 'Poker Face', 'LoveGame', 'Paparazzi' - I started to think, 'hmmmm...perhaps I misjudged Lady Gaga'. Then earlier this year when she released 'Bad Romance' I jumped onto the Lady Gaga bandwagon and decided one day that it was time to finally purchase Lady Gaga's albums, and I did...I started from the beginning and bought 'The Fame'.

While Lady Gaga's debut is a decent pop record - the singles are obvious, does that mean the non singles are terrible? Not really but some are not as strong as the singles.

The album kicks off with the hit 'Just Dance' and to this day, even though 'Just Dance' has grown on me as a good dance song, I still do not feel it is one of her strongest singles - along side her recent hit 'Telephone' with Beyonce.

'Just Dance' is followed by some of Lady Gaga's other major (and excellent) hits - 'LoveGame', 'Paparazzi', 'Beautiful, Dirty, Rich' was used as a promotional single and overseas in Australia, New Zealand, and other selected European countries, 'Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)' was a single and 'Poker Face'.

The thing with Lady Gaga is some of her lyrics are so cheeky - like in 'Poker Face' when she says 'Bluffin' with my muffin' or in LoveGame when she says 'I want to take a ride on the disco stick'. Haha, I love it!

I think 'Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) is a cute little song too. It's so 90's...and I love the whole 'cherry cherry boom boom'.

The title track of the album - 'The Fame' is probably the worst track on the album.

Back in the 1930s, audiences flocked to movie theatres to watch harmless, fluffy movie musicals featuring startlets like Shirley Temple, who distracted them from the misery of the depression. And now, we've KIND OF come full-circle, only now we have listeners with ipods and MTV, and megastars like Lady Gaga, to remind us to have fun and "Just Dance".

Lady Gaga's debut is stunning fun and also shamelessly excessive; Gaga claims that she's "addicted to a life of material" in the title track; liquor bottles, Cadillacs, models, porn, riches... you name it; all of life's finest things are on display in the song, and it couldn't be more delicious to listen to. The whole album is this way; whether singing about men, partying, dancing, money, or self-display, it is mainstream at its most narcissistic. It almost ventures into the ironic and self-parodic which is what makes the record so ingenious.

So often, dance divas emerge and become big superstars but have little or no talent at all, and love or hate her, you have to always remember that's NOT the case here; Lady Gaga has a TON of talent; she can write a fantastic song and sing it like there's no tomorrow. And if there actually was no tomorrow, I would spend my last night dancing to this record.
