I find that I loved some of her Elton John/John Lennon-inspired songs like "Speechless" and "Brown Eyes," but it's very redundant.  Her new song "You & I" was nice, but I'm sure those are the songs that will get the least amount of repeat.  "The Fame Monster" to me had NO filler.  Tracks 1-7 were pop masterpieces of the decade.  (hence why her re-release sales are far more impressive than Usher, Ke$ha, etc.)

Agreed, however initially I could listen to The Fame without skipping any tracks, then some of the songs got old. The Fame Monster was not as immediate, some tracks had to grow on me, but when they did, WOW, I thought the whole album was amazing. I actually didn't fall in love with 'Bad Romance' until the video dropped. 





You liked all of the songs on the Fame Monster?
Yup, when I first purchased the album, I only liked Bad Romance, Telephone, Teeth and Speechless. Alejandro, Dance In The Dark, So Happy I Could Die and Monster all had to grow on me, but I love them now.

The moment I heard Monster I was hooked.  That song is infectious.  Still to this day I have to listen at least twice before i can go to the next song.

For a fan it's always annoying if good songs don't get a release.
If Gaga's album is indeed full of hits, then many of them will suffer the same fate as wouldhavebeensmashes like "Monster" or "So Happy I Could Die".
And it's harder to score multiple nr.1's.

Gaga and legend Yoko last month

Lady Gaga reveals plans for Born This Way album

Lady Gaga has told Newsbeat her new album, Born This Way, will be her "most innovative" work so far

Speaking backstage on the final night of her UK Monster Ball tour, she confirmed an as-yet-untitled new single would be released in February 2011, with the album arriving "shortly after".

She described the album as "a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats."

"It's finished and all, it's just fine-tuning everything," the pop megastar added.

'More poetic'

"It's kind of like the post-operative stage of the album. I've already done the full heart surgery. I'm just sewing myself back up again," she laughed.

During the gig she showcased one new song set to appear on the album, You And I, a piano-led rock song featuring a Guns N' Roses-style guitar solo.

"I think that lyrically this album is more poetic," she explained.

"It's really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they're funnelling so much into me.
'Mother monster'

"So I wrote it for them. Born This Way is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster," she continued.

The London gig rounded off a very successful 2010 for the singer, which saw her winning three Brit awards, two Grammys and eight prizes at the MTV Video Music Awards.

And with the Monster Ball tour due to resume in north America, Canada, and Mexico from February to May 2011, Gaga is not expected to tour with a new production in the UK again until 2012.

"It's the last time I'm going to perform here until you guys hear Born This Way," she said before the gig. "It's very exciting,"

But the pop megastar revealed she will be in the UK "between February and March 2011" to debut her as-yet-untitled new single on TV.

Most innovative work so far? It wouldn't take much seeing as it will be only her second proper album I don't say that with disdain; I like a lot of her songs. It's just funny to read stuff like that so early in a career.

LOL That's what I thought. How can you say that after only 1 real studioalbum?
