Excellent Debut Album which everyone should have
This is a superb debut album that is an instant classic, if Lady Gaga didnt release another album these songs would be played for years to come. Parents if you are buying for your kids bear in mind there are some saucy lyrics, adult content and bad language you might not want younger childen to be listening and singing round their school or shops! Also watch out for the album version - there seems to be about 3-4 different releases some of which dont feature all the songs of the UK release. The tracks should be as below:
1. Just Dance
4. Poker Face
5. I Like It Rough
6. Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)
8. Beautiful, Dirty, Rich
9. The Fame
10. Money Honey
11. Boys Boys Boys
12. Paper Gangsta
13. Brown Eyes
15. Disco Heaven
16. Again Again
All of them could easily be singles and I would suggest it to anyone.

Lady GaGa - The Fame [ECD] (CD 2009) GOOD ALBUM
Generally speaking, this is a v. good first album.
She has written most if not all of the tracks on this CD in collaboration with other writers.
The ones that stand out for me are 'Just Dance', 'Lovegame', 'Paparazzi', 'Poker Face', 'Starstruck', 'The Fame' and 'Money Honey'.
'Just Dance' and 'Poker Face' should pretty much speak for themselves for most people. 'Starstruck' has a watered down hip hop influence running through it esp. from the point of view of the lyrics and is excellent, good rhythm, good general all round production. 'The Fame' and 'Money Honey' are favourites of mine. Listening to these on my ipod, I can easily visualise how the music videos for these would appear (if released as singles) bearing in mind the subject matter and Lady Gaga's overall look and image.
The heavy electronic component to these tracks, crisp production, strong vocals with polished delivery, clever lyrics and prominent retro 80's/pop/glamour influence make this a very entertaining CD to listen to.
Based on what I've heard so far, I don't think this lady is just simply hype. In my opinion, she appears to be the real deal and should be around for while yet.

Best album i ever bought
Brilliant recording, really good music, better than the dance version by far. I normally like rock (bonjovi etc) but this album has it all dance rock ballad. Love the tounge in cheek Boys Boys boys stating how she loves them a real cheeky twist talking about boy and their cars its a real laugh at the boy culture.
Some really catchy tunes too much better than i was expecting, and the album could have had loads of no. 1's from it I am sure.
Nothing like as good as the more recent stuff she has done but still has a good dance beat. One of her earliest works, Lady Gaga sets out to connect with the more eclectic (but still very pop) and risqué genre but fails to really write any catchy tunes. Given the choice, I'd buy her more recent stuff from 2010.
