    Now that it has officially leaked in full, what do you guys think?


    I just finished listening to it. Born This Way definitely makes much more sense as a whole and I get why she decided to let us listen to it before it's released.

    Standouts for me:
    - You & I - Easily the best song on the album. Beautiful melody. Love the country harmonies and the production is spot on. It's much better than I expected.
    - Heavy Metal Lover - I expected to hate this song based on the title. It's all over the place but simple. It's lazy, it's sexy, it's grimy. A clear second favorite for me.
    - Bloody Mary - Completely unexpected but very Gaga. I remember being pleasantly surprised by this one.
    - ScheiSe - This song is all over the place but makes sense as a whole. The melody really anchors it. The chorus is a LOT stronger than Judas.
    - The Edge of Glory - Love everything about this song but the lackluster instrumental section in the middle. And I love saxophones in pop music. But that middle section just drags for way too long.

    The only songs I don't remember feeling too much are Government Hooker and Americano. I'm going to need to listen to it a few more times.

    I hate her as a person, and hate the singles so far, but the record has a couple great songs. Heavy Metal Lover would sound insane in a club.

    Doesn't take a rocket scientist to search the words "Born This Way Lady Gaga album leak." But here's the link anyway:

    The album is officially on my ipod. its really good. Its an acceleration from her last two albums. The Fame was her foot in the door, the Fame Monster was her fist in the air, and Born this way is her smack to yo face! lol

    Please just delete this thread. The album isn't worth speculating over. Why don't people speculate over good bands... probably cause the people who enjoy good music aren't tools, and they JUST enjoy music instead of idolizing some stupid bitch who got a break.

    this is her on the boiling point before fame, just a plain old stupid bitch you guys, nothing special.

    I hate lady gaga, I always have, she had a cool persona for a while... but she has copied every single thing she has worn from someone else in history to the T.

    Even all the twinks on my facebook have started going from love to hate, the die hard fans that have been doing this shit since day one. They even know she sucks.

    I just liked GaGa "okay" before this album, but I think this album has gone from her being a good POP musician to be good musician in general. It's a great album.

    I'm sorry, but passing off YOUR opinion of GaGa (that she's not worth discussing) to everyone else is incredibly arrogant, and kind of a waste of your time.

    Highlights for me are all of them except Born This Way and Bad Kids. Best songs are Americano, Scheibe, Bloody Mary, Heavy Metal Lover, and Electric Chapel.

    Have listened to it as a whole about 1.5 times...

    Songs I absolutely love = "Government Hooker," "Judas", and "You and I".

    "You and I" is incredible imo.

    and LOL @ the guy who's like "why don't you listen to real music"...WHAT THE FUCK IS REAL MUSIC!?!?

    Not feeling the whole album, even after listening to it a couple times. The only standout track is You and I. Then come the so-so Born this Way and Judas. I personally didnt really like The Edge of Glory when I first heard it, and now, even after having listened to the whole album over and over again, still dont like it. But yea, she definitely nailed Glory and You and I with her great vocal skills. Sorry but Im not buying this album lol. Fame Monster was a much better effort.

    The songs feel a bit forced to me. It is like "ANTHEM!" and here is "EURODANCE" and here is another "ANTHEM"!

    I don't think the song construction is as complex as it was on her first album.

    So....for me...... it is average.

    The Fame's song construction was about 3,000x simpler than the this. That was the whole point.
