I must say I was initially a bit skeptical about this album, judging by its first two singles (which were alright, just not as epic or attention-grabbing as Gaga's past singles), but after hearing the rest of the album, it eventually grew on me and now I truly love it. While not as life-changing for me as The Fame, it incorporates quite a variety of music genres (in addition to her usual yet awesome synthpop sounds), including New Wave, electro-industrial, electroclash, techno and yes, some darkwave. I've always thought "pop" was a rather limited term to describe her music anyway. My personal highlights are "Bad Kids", "Electric Chapel" (the synth+guitar combo = WIN), "Government Hooker", "Scheiße" (I can picture myself dancing to it in some high-end Berlin nightclub) and "Heavy Metal Lover".
