    Chromatica is pretty solid. It’s a quality wave for me. Starts out with two songs (Alice, Stupid Love) that were pretty forgettable, then the next three (Rain On Me, Free Woman, Fun Tonight) were really good, then the next three after that (911, Plastic Doll, Sour Candy) just didn’t hit me at all, but the last 5 (Enigma, Replay, Sine From Above, 1000 Doves, Babylon) pick up the slack and carry the album to a strong track. Lyrics are pretty weak in some of the tracks, but in others (Free Woman, Sine From Above, and Replay especially) they’re actually really good. It’s way too short, but still somehow has more standout tracks than Future Nostalgia, and better production value too (fight me). Overall I give it a 7/10.

    Also, I’m firmly in the camp of “not a fan of 911”. GLADoS Gaga can go somewhere else.

    My Top 8

    8: Fun Tonight

    7: Babylon

    6; 1000 Doves

    5: Enigma

    4: Free Woman (sounds like a Taylor track in the best way)

    3: Replay (is it bad that I bopped to a song about date rape?)

    2: Sine From Above (might be #1 if not for the weird ending)

    1: Rain On Me (still the best, probably one of my favorite Gaga tracks period)

    Stream After Hours and In Your Eyes (Remix)

    It’s actully better than Furture Nostalgia for me (fight me too) 😳 Really surprised about that! It was my favorite album of the year until now. I liked 3-4 songs on Future Nostalgia while I like 7 songs on Chromatica.

    Free Woman and Fun Tonight should be the next singles.

    Sine from above, 1000 doves and Babylon are next in line. I can’t choose one! There’re so many good track on this album.

    It’s an excellent dance album, her best since Born This Way. She still haven’t top The Fame Monster tho.

    A solid 8,5/10! Should win the Grammy for Best Dance Album easily.

    Is it eligible for best dance album?  I thought recording academy changed the rules for that.

    Love Roger Federer ♥ the most.

    Hope so because it’s really a dance album and not really « pop »

    Honey, stop being delusional.  Crapmatica will be rightfully placed in Pop.  The screening committee do NOT play that.  Dance Album, my ass!

    Now I get the dance talk everyone’s talking about. This is the first time in a while that I’m listening to something that blurs the line between the two. But the production isn’t the star of the album (even though it’s decent enough), it’s her vocals and the dance category is very production focused, so, my vote for Chromatica would be in pop.

    On whether or not she’s still a threat for either category, I say a fat yes.

    This will do. I liked it more than I expected. Gaga has replaced aggressive, dark, thrashing dance-pop with something more light, tight and bob-your-head-y. And it mostly works. Nothing here makes me feel as ethereal or perverse as her best songs. But it’s a solid, consistent dance-pop album. That’s not really enough to make it particularly special, especially since this past year is full of solid dance-pop albums. I do think she mostly succeeded at what she was aiming for. 911, Alice and Babylon are my standouts. Is it better than Future Nostalgia? Possibly. I’d have to spend more time with it. But it’s not as if I liked FN that much.

    This why I don’t play with chu....

    I enjoyed Chromatica more than I thought I would. I’ll have to give it a few more listens in order to form a better opinion. I thought the use of intros and interludes was a smart idea, they work so well with a dance record like this. Alice was a standout instantly, I think it might be my favorite! SL and ROM work better on the record than they do as singles. I love the first first half of the album. Chromatica II + 911 is a great moment in the record it sounds like an actual sci-fi epic, they did a good job with the production. I wouldn’t t be surprised if this nabbed Best Engineered Album. The rest of the middle of the album was kind of meh and forgettable (like i said I’ll need to listen again). I loved everything after Chromatica III Syn From Above absolutely slaps It’s classic twisted Gaga which I love! 1000 Doves and Babylon where great closers. Honestly I don’t see anything else from the album being a hit. I think Rain on Me is the most radio friendly of the tracks. I don’t think this is the type of music the general public will like. But us gays are living.

    No song reaches as high as some of her earlier highs, but the overall album is a well produced cohesive body of work. The lyrics are wacky but they’ve always been that way. That transition between the instrumental and “911” is genius. I’d give it 8/10. I don’t really hear any other radio friendly singles, nor do I think this is a sound the traditional Grammy voters will embrace. But we’ll see.

    “Sour Candy” is two-and-half-minutes of utter nonsense. Hope there’s a video to redeem this one. Otherwise, yeah. Looking forward to finally hearing the rest of the album later.
