    Possibly, song for song, her best yet. ... She sounds like she knows exactly who she is, what she wants to say and how she wants to say it — and with “Chromatica,” she’s laid a rock-solid foundation for the next phase of her remarkable career.

    Infectious, exciting and even a little hedonistic during some of the most confusing of modern times, now’s never been a better time to get lost in this new destination.

    Across its sixteen tracks, ‘Chromatica’ is entirely over-the-top, but in the best possible way. Every song is an anthem of defiance and empowerment, turned up to 11 and genetically engineered for maximum danceability.

    Chromatica offers Gaga at her most energetic and forceful, and that is something to behold.

    Chromatica’s frank grappling with the vagaries of Gaga’s brain – and the way fame exacerbates them – ends up feeling much more real than touring dive bars with a guitar and a Stetson ever did.

    Weighed down by lesser songs like "Alice", "Enigma", and the blissfully short BLACKPINK collaboration "Sour Candy", Chromatica isn't quite a full-bore masterwork. Still, given the thundering club-filling fun and layered meanings revealed upon relistens, it is assuredly the most lively and consistent record she's made since Born This Way.

    Whether muddling the creation of the universe with both love and fame (“Sine from Above”) or teasing the theory of the world as a simulation (“Enigma”), these songs only scratch the surface of deeper ideas before falling back on the most basic of pop clichés.

    Cannot see another desperate artist like lady gaga. Her last era was in 2011 and still nobody can touch her at that time. She seeked forCannot see another desperate artist like lady gaga. Her last era was in 2011 and still nobody can touch her at that time. She seeked for another rising features artist to support her another “flop” era. Remember Stupid Love, the video was terrible, the green screen can still be seen. Another thing chromatica hasn’t any breakthrough moment, messages, nor role. She successfully failed herself again.
