The Fame (2008)

Post by Andamo on Wed Aug 17, 2011 11:20 am

The Fame is the debut album from Lady Gaga.



It was released on August 19, 2008 by Interscope Records. Gaga worked with several producers on the album, mainly RedOne, Martin Kierszenbaum, and Rob Fusari. The songs are mostly inspired by Gaga's love of fame in general, and deal with the intricacies of a rich and famous lifestyle, visualized by her. Musically, the album drew inspiration from '80s electropop and synthpop while incorporating dance music and clear hooks.
The album received mostly positive reviews, with critics commending Gaga's ability to discover a melodious hook and comparing her vocal abilities to those of Gwen Stefani. The album went to number-one in countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Ireland. In the United States the album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 and topped Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Worldwide, the album has sold over 12 million copies.[4][5]
The first two singles from The Fame, "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", were both international hits, with "Just Dance" topping the charts in over six countries, including the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. "Poker Face" was able to peak at number-one in almost all the major musical markets, and it became her second consecutive number-one hit on the Hot 100 chart. Other singles released includes "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)", "LoveGame", and "Paparazzi". Gaga promoted the album by performing the songs in a number of live appearances, including her first headlining The Fame Ball Tour. The Fame is featured as a bonus disc on the deluxe edition of Gaga's EP, The Fame Monster.
The Fame has won a number of awards, since it was released. The album, and the songs from it were nominated in total of six Grammy Awards, including in the Album of the Year category. It went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album and the single "Poker Face" won Best Dance Recording.[6] On February 16, 2010, it also won Best International Album at the 2010 BRIT Awards.[7]

Poker Face and Brown Eyes are probably the best songs from The Fame. It's a great pop album!

I remember hearing this album for the first time and being all excited. Too bad she became so overexposed.

It's a solid album but I never thought it was anything more than a generic pop record. Poker Face and Lovegame were great, maybe even Just dance but I only really got into her after this era ended.
