Oct 5, 2018The songs from the early portion of the movie are almost impenetrably perfect. ... Cooper’s voice, lowered for the film to create the world-weary, addiction-addled Maine, is surprisingly great, either crackling like a pit of fire when he begins to holler or settling into a warm, smoky rasp during the ballads. ... The music Gaga helps write for this stretch in Ally’s career, where she’s still brunette and performing with a man she is falling in love with, is gorgeous--romantic without being trite and powerful.
Oct 9, 2018Save for a digital flourish or two on the pop songs that make up much of the film’s back half, there’s very little here that would’ve sounded out of place on blockbuster film soundtracks of decades past. At its peaks, the album delivers on the promise of its star-wattage with some of the most affecting and emotionally overwhelming pop songs of the year.
Oct 5, 2018Nelson co-writes many of Gaga’s songs too, which essay a slightly awkward journey from rock balladry to slickly superficial pop. In one sense, there is a tangible jump in standards as Gaga comes to the fore on the second half of the album--she is a major musical talent. But there is also a weird disconnect as the soundtrack shifts gear to anodyne modern pop.
Oct 10, 2018There’s undoubtedly a strong 10-song album lodged at the core of A Star Is Born, but unlike the film, wherein an outsized sense of sentimentality is rendered affecting by the more grounded performances, there’s not nearly enough substance here to justify all the bombast.

Bradley Cooper's voice is incredible, it is amazing to see how an actor can actually be a good singer. For day-one fans, Gaga also gave them some dancy pop tracks, such as 'Heal Me' and 'Hair Body Face' produced by long-time collaborator DJ White Shadows.… Expand

The transition from Bradley's "Black eyes", performed in the best country/rock tradition , to Gaga's truly heart-touching ballads including "Is That Alright'', ''Always Remember Us This Way'' and masterpiece ''I'll Never Love Again'' is organic and really good-story-telling. Also switching genres is very typical for Gaga, confirming her incredible versatility as an artist. i'm truly captured by the lyrics - feels like purified love. Definetly won.… Expand
