Reviews The Fame Monster [Deluxe Edition]
THE LADY CAN SING!! Her voice is a rich and powerful instrument.
The cut-and-paste way with both words and melody keeps
us both guessing and entertained at every turn.
The ecstatic hook of 'Alejandro' errupts out of the swirling,
raw-edged, synth and big-beat backdrop like a ray of sunshine
bursting through a black cloud.
When Lady GG tells us that "...he ate my heart and then he
ate my brain" on a subway train, we know that we are not in
the company of an ordinary or restrained musical imagination.
A song like 'Monster' confirms both her eccentricity and her genius.
'Speechless' delivers one of the finest vocal performances she
has so-far given us. Soulful, sincere and totally believable.
Back to the dancefloor with 'Dance In The Dark' (begging for
a more uptempo remix!). The thundering percussion and
deleriously infectious chorus are magnificently uplifting.
So too the electric collaboration with Ms Knowles on 'Telephone'.
The chemistry generated by these two not inconsiderably large
egos could have burst the song at the seams. Full credit to the
production team for keeping the train on the rails.
Both Divas would appear to have survived with their dignity intact.
'So Happy I Could Die' layers instrumental and vocal harmonies
to splendid effect. One of the album's strongest tunes.
