Lady Gaga - The Fame (2008)

Rating:6/10
From start to end Lady Gaga (aka Stefani Germanotta) surprises with her wide musical inspiration. I've read that she influenced by Queen, David Bowie and Madonna. OK, i hate just that they love counting idols to sell more records and recieving positive reviews. She copies some formulas:

Recall list:
Beautiful Dirty Rich recalls Bang Bang by David Bowie
Love Game recalls 4 Minutes by Madonna
Beautiful Dirty Rich recalls Shoes by Liam Kyle Sullivan
Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) recalls Gwen Stefani cross Robyn
Again Again recalls both Queen and David Bowie
I Like It Rough recalls Break The Ice by Britney Spears
The Fame recalls Original Sin by INXS

For the rest, these songs sound like any pop artists such as Sugababes, Britney Spears and even Pink. She's better get used to hearing Gwen Stefani, Robyn, Pussycat Dolls and Fergie comparisons. Honestly song named "Summerboy" surprised me, it's been a great work. Wow so many names, this must be one of the most eclectic music recently. The Fame will crush music lists that's for sure. Because all tracks are written to make the lists. If you have watched oscar winner "Dream Girls" you'll absolutely understand what i think about The Fame. This is well-done commercial dance music despite its fugitive soul.

Highlights: Just Dance, Paparazzi, Money Honey, Again Again, Summerboy

Do you realize that you contradict YOURSELF.

==> Your review is dud.

And 6/10? Are you serious? Say better first that you don't like Lady Gaga.

EDIT : Do you realize that you contradict YOURSELF? (Sorry for the wrong dot.)

Plus, nowadays, almost all beats and tunes have already been made. So, it's kinda normal that a song sounds like another's one. (And about your comparison of 'Dirty Rich', it's kinda off the wall.)
By the way, the songs you mention have been inspired by some other songs too!

Don't know if all beats have been made. They said the same thing in Beethoven's day

ok please someone must know, I will be very dissapointed in you all if you cannot tell me this- Lady Gaga's "the fame" begins with that catchy electric guitar melody, that is so obviously a rip off from this 90s song that shares almost the same electric guitar melody...can you tell me the song? It was in a hair commercial, begins with this girl's voice starting on a high note, going lower...
