Chromatica could have used a huge dose of SOPHIE to save it from its blandness. Sophie’s clanking metallic sound engineering and bubblegum bass really embody the title “Chromatica”. Her more pure pop records are just blissful ear worms and would have been a perfect fit for Gaga. Apparently they have worked together but their song never saw the light of day.
It is the bonus track. It sounded really nice.May 29, 2020 at 3:37 am #1203507004
Hmmm I just listened to Love Me Right. Like the album, it’s… fine. I like it, but it wouldn’t even be in my top 30 SOPHIE tracks (her catalog of unreleased on Youtube is incredible). The most flamboyant gay-icon pop diva and a queer experimental bubblegum icon get in the studio together, and they make a subdued slowjam?? They could have scaled the extra-ness all the way up to an 11, buts its at like a 4. It just doesn’t make any sense.May 29, 2020 at 3:39 am #1203507007
Yea agreed it’s not what you’d expect from a Gaga & Sophie collaboration. It’s cute but not really like Sophie’s sound.May 29, 2020 at 3:43 am #1203507010This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.

Speaking of R&B.. Ro James releases a really great album. I’ll have him as a R&B album contender.May 29, 2020 at 7:59 am #1203507250
Who has the highest chance for AOTY?May 29, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203507269
Chromatica is…fine. Some nice production, some catchy hooks, it plays like a Born This Way B-sides record, but more polished, soft and rhythmic. This really is an ode to gay music with all the vogueing/ballroom style tracks like Babylon, Rain on Me, and Replay. The classical interludes are generic and seem like an afterthought/likely motivated by streaming optimization. The album only has one undeniable hit. Tracks on the second half are at best half baked, and at worst pure filler. There isn’t enough variety to keep things interesting when quality gets stretched thin. Honestly, all Gaga does on Replay is literally ruin a really nice instrumental. I hope this will not be submitted in Dance/Electronic since Gaga is a singer/songwriter and not an electronic music producer. This breaking into AOTY is a tossup depending on how it performs and what critics say. It has zero chance of winning. Standout tracks are Rain on Me, Free Woman, Alice, Fun Tonight, Babylon.
Arca better be nominated for Kick I in Dance/Electronic!May 29, 2020 at 9:28 am #1203507326

Chromatica starts off with an 81 MC. Good reviews but no raves so far. Similar to how Lover was perceived and will probably perform just like that when it comes to the Grammys.
