    Gaga is held to such an absurdly high standard. It’s sad to see a lot of her comments turn out to be from early in her career re: her legacy being felt more once she was gone. I don’t know how to speak in posts shorter than a novel, so to sum up my main points:

    Chromatica combines K-POP with Elton John in a restrained, cohesive way that she has been unable to do previously (Born This Way) on an album that perfectly blends her dance-pop glory days with the maturity of her ASIB rebirth; its personal without being burdensome (Joanne); its a digestible body-of-work crammed into the restraints of the streaming era’s 3:00 max but still touches on every topic needed to remain uncancelled: mental health, addiction, feminism, objectification, the religion of science, bullying.

    It is not only a well-curated #1 album, but it’s already amassed commercial success beyond most recent contenders for AOTY: Stupid Love (#5), Rain On Me (#1), and Sour Candy (~#15 – 40). She should also get 1 solo Top 40 out of: Alice, Fun Tonight, Replay, or Free Woman, and another hit collaboration with Sine From Above (hopefully after 08/31).

    The only songs that weren’t more than a B+ for me were Enigma and Babylon. I wish I could add ~1:00 to several tracks, but I don’t see why the following nominations would be unwarranted:

    1. GENERAL FIELD: AOTY, SOTY (Rain On Me; hoping for Fun Tonight)

    2. POP: BPVA, BPD/G (2020, Rain On Me; 2021, Sine From Above)

    With a peak of 78 on metacritic and 0 GF wins, why would she write anything at the level of Bad Romance when it wasn’t even nominated for ROTY or SOTY? Why would she deliver a vocal performance on the level of Shallow if, despite being the most awarded song in history, it was 0/2 in the GF?

    If The Fame (71) wasn’t influential enough to warrant a GF win; if The Fame Monster (78) wasn’t proof enough that she had the skills to back up her celebrity; if Born This Way (71) wasn’t experimental or ambitious enough; if A Star is Born (78) wasn’t undeniable in its cross-genre, worldwide appeal, then why did anyone expect a record that matches the ground-breaking songwriting of Future Nostalgia (88) and Chart domination of its followup singles to Don’t Start Now? In the days where bridges have gone extinct, Chromatica is a quality response from Gaga re: her relevancy and status.

    I’m waiting on Boz to give his/her/their review of the album. I’ve been anticipating it all of last night and this morning, honestly.

    Chromatica so far is being received well by critics .

    I don’t know why but I’m starting to love the album the more I listen to it wow. It’s really not bad at all it’s a good house/edm record.
