MOTHER MONSTER: Lady Gaga released her new album, which is filled with powerful vocals and uplifting beats.—COURTESY OF INTERSCOPE RECORDS

Going Gaga Over Mother Monster

By Zayda Costa

Lady Gaga’s new album Born This Way proves what the eccentric pop star is capable of. The album is filled with powerful vocals and uplifting beats and features a little of everything from pop to disco, and even some rock and roll.

Aside from the most popular singles, “Born This Way” and “Judas,” Mother Monster has a plethora of hits on her new album. Even though the pop star is best known for her trendy dance/pop style of music, her third album showcases the different styles she can transform her music into.

Her new songs are most impressive and will catch you by surprise. Lady Gaga’s inner glam rocker is clearly heard on the album when the influences of Elton John and Billy Joel shine through on the songs “You and I”, “The Edge of Glory,” and “Bad Kids”. Lady Gaga also shows her cultural side and devotion to her fans by singing in both German and Spanish on the songs “Scheibe” and “Americano,” respectively.

What is most intriguing about the album is that it’s more than just fun-filled music. Behind all of the techno party beats lie messages of self-acceptance, conquering our fears, and staying true to oneself. Born This Way also takes on issues such as gay marriage, immigration laws, the government and death. Overall, the main theme is about equality for all.

The album perfectly showcases Lady Gaga’s ability to take real, personal issues and cleverly turn them into mega hits. The pop star’s third studio album is truly a work of art.

Born This Way—Lady Gaga—Interscope Records—Regular Edition: 14 tracks; 61 minutes 12 seconds—Special Edition: 2 discs; 22 tracks; 1 hour 39 minutes 51 seconds—5 stars
