Play.com Review

Armed with a catalogue of weighty dance tracks and exploding beats, eccentric singer-songwriter Lady GaGa marks an impressive arrival with her dazzling debut album, The Fame. Packed full of booming, slick riffs and funky grooves, this retro-laced release is set to reignite the sound of the electro-pop genre in a futuristic whirl of energy, glamour, and fun.

A regular performer on the New York club scene since the age of seventeen, Lady GaGa has taken influence from the eclectic entertainers of the 'Big Apple' to develop her own unique style. Now, for the first time on record, The Fame sees the multi-talented Lady GaGa belt out a selection of her self-penned tunes. Opening with the infectious top 5 single, 'Just Dance', Lady GaGa unleashes her theatrical groove and razor-sharp vocals to great effect. With charming deliverance, the captivating combination of the bass heavy tracks such as, 'Paparazzi', demonstrate Lady GaGa's ability to draw focus to her nimble vocal tone within a layered montage of dance beats. Taking a darker path with 'Boys Boys Boys', Lady GaGa touches on a rockier style that, along with 'Beautiful, Dirty, Rich' and 'Money Honey', brings a lavish Gwen Stefani dance-rock feel to the album. Nestling amongst these synth-filled tunes are the softer, 'Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)' and 'Brown Eyes'. Revealing a vulnerable side to Lady GaGa, the tracks vary the tempo and create large doses of emotion without losing any of the energy that the faster tracks generate in excess.

Exceptionally appealing and utterly memorable, The Fame shifts from track to track in a buzz of delicious hooks and vibrant styles. Bringing the sparkling vibe of the New York scene out of the underground without losing any of its smut and sass, Lady GaGa has delivered a glitter-laced album that provides all of the funky elements to intrigue and delight listeners of all musical genres.

 Absolutely Disgusting! An Embarresment to the world of music

One of the songs sounds like the Kazakstan music from Borat , She's an absolute drip and theres no room in todays society for this dribble , do not buy!

 The Fame is astonishing...Gaga reigns supreme

2009 looks fabulous for up and rising dance diva Lady gaga, she boasts nothing but excellent tracks on The Fame which is quite easily an early contender for greatest album of 2009.
Gaga has recently co wrote songs for britney's recent excellent effort Circus and her talent really shone.
Just Dance has currently been at the well deserved #1 spot in the UK for 2 weeks in a row and it is really excellent.
no Lady Gaga is certainly far away from being a one hit wonder...she is here to stay and along with Aguilera and Spears will lead her genre and become royalty instantly.
all 16 tracks are crammed with fun and unique style which reflects a more Queen incorporated vibe mixed with Cyndi lauper and David Bowie...it is really something quite incredible.
The Fame is the album to purchase if you only aim to get one album this year.
truely an exceptional talent and one to watch out for...Poker Face is sure to lead the charts as the next release from the album.
simply enchanting and wonderful for lovers of music she herself can't even compare to other artists...she is a unique and stunning talent.

 Gaga for Gaga? No.

Admittedly, I am almost embarassed to say that I enjoy three tracks from this album. (Those being Just Dance, Starstruck and The Fame). The rest of this album is just a bizarre electro pop mess. Lyrically, Gaga isn't that refreshing. The catchy hooks and choruses made by the producers make up the lack of creativity within the songs. Most of it is filler and for a first album it is quite weak but at least they are choosing decent singles to promote it.

I'm not sure how I feel about Gaga as an artist but I feel that she hasn't attempted anything new. Having heard Just Dance on my travels to the U.S. in July 2008, I was so over this track before the U.K. got their hands on it.

If you want a decent pop album with an electro influence, I would rather recommend Britney Spears - Circus (Deluxe Edition) as it is far more varied and better produced. Please note that I am not particular Britney fan, I own two out of her six albums, but I feel that as an artist of a similar genre to Gaga, they were more comparable. The Fame is over-hyped.

Lady Gaga's debut album is still filled with absolutely perfectly crafted electro pop dance beauties that have earned her her place as one of pop's current megastars. Tracks like 'Just Dance', 'Love Game', 'Paparazzi', 'Poker Face', 'Boys, Boys, Boys' and more remain as catchy as ever.

The funny thing is that after the re-release of this album as The Fame Monster and some of her hits since she first broke (Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro) some of the tracks here seem positively plain in comparison to the more elaborate production and sound of her most recent singles.

Which of course, is silly, because a pop gem is a pop gem no matter what and that's what this album is choc full of.

 GREAT ALBUM, GREAT ARTIST!

This album is fantastic, I loved every song. I also appreciate the fact that the artist wrote and produced every song herself, even still there are other artists who feel she is too outrageous, or is it just the fact that she is great at waht she does and her album has donw so well not only in the UK, but worldwide!!!
