Mixed reviews for the new album by Lady Gaga

The provocative American pop artist Lady Gaga releases his second full length album this week, three years after the rise to stardom in the music world, but while expected huge sales, early reviews have been mixed. True to their preferences for social networking, the 25 year old girl presents "Born this Way" unconventional uploading some songs to play online social Farmville before the launch on Monday, as well as other songs have already been distributed.

The song that gives title track was released in February, shortly before Gaga, whose real name is Joanne Gemanotta-Angelina, was a shock to appear enclosed in a transparent capsule egg-shaped to present the song at the Grammys The annual meeting of the music industry. "I want to celebrate and share 'Born This Way' with my little monsters in a special way that has never been done before," said Gaga.

His "little monsters" are the legions of fans who idolize the star, whose hits from the first album ("The Fame", 2008), including "Bad Romance," "Paparazzi" and "Poker Face." Sold over Lady Gaga 15 million albums and 51 million singles worldwide, won five Grammys, was among the most influential people in Time magazine and is among the top ten in the list of "100 most powerful women" in the world by Forbes according to its Web site.

Compared by some with the legendary and chameleon-like David Bowie and Madonna stars, Gaga has ascended into the stratosphere of pop despite having released only one full length album, "The Fame" in 2008, followed by "The Fame Monster", a album of eight songs in 2009. So its much-anticipated new album.

But despite a massive publicity campaign and the likelihood that their fans would buy more than what the critics say, the pre-launch reviews have been decidedly mixed. The British newspaper The Guardian gave it four out of five stars, praising Lady Gaga "the most exciting, confusing and amazing pop artist's creative world," while MTV referred to the 14 "darkly sumptuous tracks from the album.

But Entertainment Weekly, noting that the album had been leaked on the Internet, defined as "an incoherent jumble of techno-pop ice cream and greeting postcard" that has more to do with a triumph of production than songwriting. The LA Times said scornfully: "Say what you want about Lady Gaga, but the nuances are not one of its strengths, or what is your musical adventure.

She is not subtle in his message is not subtle in his clothes, and most importantly, aesthetically is not subtle. " The ability of this diva born in New York of crazy fans is legendary, helped by the fact of being leader of the first generation of stars that uses social networks to connect with the audience.

Last week became the first person over 10 million followers in Twitter, and was the first artist to exceed one billion entries in the video-sharing site YouTube. The singer quickly entered the firmament of pop stars, in April, Elton John revealed that he and his partner David Furnish had been chosen as godmother to her newborn.

Lady Gaga also generated waves in political, last November when he used his celebrity to lobby for repeal of a U.S. law that prohibits gays serving openly in the military. But rather than be everywhere, critics say he should focus on the music. "If Gaga devote equal time to extend the musical boundaries in the same way it does with social," Born This Way 'would have been much more successful, "said the LA Times.

The commentator on the Washington Post was more direct: "Whether by accident, curse or a cosmic disturbance, new music by Lady Gaga is all that she is not. It's boring. "
