Is Lady Gaga’s Re-Release Actually Worth Buying?


Yes, apparently. The two-disc record, which drops Nov. 23, is more than just a repackaging of The Fame. It’s a little ambitious for a singer to re-release an album when she only has one album, but if you’re already sick of “Paparazzi,” there’s “Alejandro,” a “Spanishy dance track that’s unlike anything from The Fame, with touches of ABBA and Euro-pop mixed in.” And, because pop artists cannot release records without a telecommunications number (see: Britney, “Phonography”; Beyonce, “Video Phone”), The Gaga has “Telephone.” Ring ring, it’s the homos pre-ordering.
