  • Summary: The album of remixes of Lady Gaga's hits was originally released in Japan.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 1 out of 6
  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.

    On this Lady Gaga remix album, 10 producers and DJs sink their teeth into her meaty catalog--with predictably uneven results.

    At 17 tracks it borders on overkill, but that's fitting for Gaga, who has made excessiveness her raison d'être, and some of the included remixes are quite good.
  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 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. This album easily re-invents the song, some even more interesting than before Expand

    The album does not work out as a whole, however each track itself, not as an album, pull off something truely incredible. All the proof you need is in the 'Alejandro' and 'Eh Eh' remixes. Expand

    The Remix shows that it's about time GaGa gave us something new to listen to and a couple of the songs drag on FOREVER, but this is hardly the worst remix album there's ever been. Expand

    The remix album is okay. There are some really good mixes in here. good for parties and good to play at clubs. I like the mixes. The mixes does not make the song horrible. Some people doesn't like this remix album. This remix album is okay nothing bad about it. Expand

    What already sounded like a remix is now remixed again to sound somewhat different. If by different, you mean generic, boring, and annoying to listen to. I mean, Lady Gaga already repeated ''alejandro'' 50 times on the normal album version, why bother make it even more obnoxious? I fear for the future of music. Expand
