  1. The Remix's 10 songs won't replace Gaga's chart-topping hits, but the tracks offer enough interesting angles to attract Gaga diehards as well as casual dance music fans.
  2. The Remix collects 10 club-ready interpretations of tracks from The Fame and its expanded reissue, The Fame Monster; it's a cash grab, but one that handily reminds you how much Gaga has done to push American pop back toward the dance floor.

    At 17 tracks it borders on overkill, but that's fitting for Gaga, who has made excessiveness her raison d'ĂȘtre, and some of the included remixes are quite good.

    On this Lady Gaga remix album, 10 producers and DJs sink their teeth into her meaty catalog--with predictably uneven results.
  5. Most of the time, The Remix settles for simply putting Gaga's slim catalog to faster and more blaring use.
  6. If you love these songs and want to hear them sound different and not as good as the versions you cherish, this record is for you! If not, what you'll hear is a confusing collection of material you didn't much enjoy in the first place sound unpleasant in new, and parallel, ways.

    why metacritic is not fair with everyone ? it`s not fair to make a review of a remix album because it`s not an album . if u want to make awhy metacritic is not fair with everyone ? it`s not fair to make a review of a remix album because it`s not an album . if u want to make a review do with every singer of pop britney spears ,katy perry ,kesha ,etc etc i think the only porpouse of doing this its to allow bad reviews and count it for the general score of the artist so Metacritic have to delete the reviews for remixes and keep the review just for an album OK p.d where is the review for the remix album of u2, depeche mode ,etc? they are not good but it doesn`t mean that their albums are bad Full Review »
