O auge da mãe mostra. Deliciosas batidas eletrônicas, grandes ganchos, voz com personalidade e video clipes e shows impecáveis. A ultima grande superstar!

Huh. Seems like all the elitist rockists and prog obsessives deliberately come here to vote down a popular artist’s songs in bulk.

Beneath the meat dresses and weird for weird's sake persona lies a handful of generic electropop tracks with a passable voice. Who knew. There are catchy tunes on this EP, however she has absolutely nothing (new) to say and most songs on here are sort of bland. Decent in comparison to mainstream pop in 2009, but really this isn't anything to fuss over.

I really want to agree with soundguardian’s centrist comment. But taking the middle road on this site is still biased. This album is not supposed to be funny, like The Beach Boys’ Smiley Smile for instance. People need to realize that one’s inner and most sincere thoughts and preferences are just very cringy, and the artists that dare to tap into those feelings that people don’t dare to express, inevitably receive hate from the people that don’t even dare to admit to those feelings, because they think they’re fucking capable of feeling higher emotions, but in fact those emotions are just different and they are denying a part of themselves. And ironically these people often unironically enjoy really laughable music like AC/DC and Guns ‘n’ Roses. “But isn’t that just because you are biased too?” No, because I can actually enjoy some hard rock from other artists; I don’t throw a whole genre in the garbage bin.

About this album: some songs are pretty derivative, but the good ones are very good. Much like her first album.

Her absolute best work and a great mini album. Hopefully she releases a short cohesive project like this in the future.

This album is the perfect pop dance album. She has a great voice, the songs are weird and over the top. Lyrical is a bit different from what the norm is in pop music. And 'Dance in the Dark' is one of the best dance songs I've heard in recent years.

This album is underrated in this site but I think is because people are really against pop mainstream. If you are not an one sided music lover, you will appreciate the greatness of this album.

"Bad Romance" is the best single in the top 10 in the last 20 years. The other two hits from the album ("Alejandro" and "Telephone") were among the best of 2009 and 2010. Just on the strength of those three songs, this album gets a place in my Top 40. The rest of the album holds up along the aforementioned three.

I see this is particularly polarizing. And it IS laughable, indeed, just not necessarily in a negative light, depending on one's perspective. I find it amusing, and a sense of humor is sometimes required to like this.

Admittedly, I don't treat this strictly seriously as I do for the rock and alternative that I listen to. Pop is pop, and so expectations are different. Enclosed in this album is a diversity of dance music (diversity in style, diversity in quality, and diversity in tone). "Bad Romance" is whimsical; "Alejandro" is delightfully excessive and overstated; "Telephone" is infectious. Some alternate short descriptor can be applied to each of the other tracks.

It's not terrible, but it's also not very ground-breaking or profound, at least not to the extent that the number of sales, the ardent nature of her fans, and her distinction as the 'weirdest musical act of contemporary music' would suggest. I would suggest take a listen, but hold low expectations to avoid disappointment. And don't take it too seriously!

Best tracks: "Bad Romance", "Teeth", "Speechless"
