ItsGenuineGuy09 A Popster Is Born 10,861 Posted January 5, 2021 Share Posted January 5, 2021 Don't get me wrong - i love Chromatica, its one of her most consistent and coherent bodies of work... However: Looking at Future Nostalgia's year long acclaim that cultivated with an AOTY nom, multiple year end list love, and an over 85 score on metacrtic - Do you believe that Chromatica is the best output that Gaga could've done in 2020, or did she make this album and other factors ultimately influence it's outcome. Personally, whilst the lyrics are great, i find that the album could've been made a lot more fresher and less noisy in parts. This therefore would've made it more acclaimed and perhaps be more organic commercially vs. having big first month and then not sticking around. Stupid Love has some elements that i love, but i am not sure as her big pop comeback it really nailed it, despite sounding good on the radio. It almost does feel a little bit like someone was asked to make a song that sounded like a lady gaga song - if that makes sense. Sour Candy, on the other hand, is in my opinion some of the best work on the album - it's a dance song that isn't noisy and has disco influence - I think her coming back with that as lead would've been better and less reductive. i almost feel like Chromatica was originally thought up to really be like her 'future nostalgia' and be Gaga's return to dance, doing something trend setting. Perhaps somewhere along the way it became more about pleasing the fans and soccer moms - and it's progressiveness was stunted. ROM is a highlight of the album, but doesn't necessarily feel like it reached its potential - almost feeling like it is not as replayable as it could be. Also Free Woman the album version is no where near as strong as the house demo. Discuss! 2 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
