[NEW RELEASES]Lady Gaga
It may be her experience as a student of New York’s Tisch School of the Arts, or it could be her experience as a songwriter for Interscope, but Lady Gaga has what it takes to make it on the pop charts.
Her album exudes the confidence of a powerful new talent. Lady Gaga wrote all of the lyrics on the album, as well as doing most of the synthesizer work.
Lady Gaga’s genre of music could be described as “discotronica.” But if disco is a little before your time, fear not. With her strong vocals, pounding beats and repetitive refrains, Gaga gives modern music a tongue-in-cheek retro touch. “LoveGame” is laced with sensual slow beats; “Boys Boys Boys” is Gaga’s answer to Motley Crue’s “Girls, Girls, Girls.”
And with her leather gloves, fishnet tights, sunglasses, and the mirrorball on stage, Gaga seems to have the same fashion-conscious sensibility for pop culture that Madonna did in the ’80s. Her creative crew, “Haus of Gaga,” designs everything from the sound to the stage.
