Lady Gaga released on Tuesday “The Remix,” a collection of remixed material from her first two albums.
TRIVIA: Lady Gaga set a record last week when she was nominated for 13 MTV Video Music Awards.
STANDOUTS: For pure weirdness, it’s hard to top the atrocious Chew Fu Ghettohouse Fix of “LoveGame.” Already one of Lady Gaga’s weakest singles, the track isn’t helped by a guest appearance from Marilyn Manson.
FANS DIG: Dance clubs.
ANDY SAYS: I like Lady Gaga, but these club remixes of her hit singles do the pop phenom no favors. She’s given the voice of a chipmunk on “Telephone” and generally has to compete with far too many synthesizers on too many of her strong songs. A couple of tracks may play well in a club, but it’s hard to imagine listening to them anywhere else.
