Not my Cup of Tea
Reviewed in the United States on May 5, 2019
I have never listened to Gaga much or was a fan. I am sure, according to the ratings, this was one of her big hit albums and those who like that kind of fast pop liked it.
Unfortunately I bought it because I had just seen A Star is Born and thought it would be have the same similar beautiful songs ( ballads) like Shallows and the finale number. It was not. I am not a fan of today’s sing along and dance type music, but am sure young people and her fans love it.
Oddly, like the character, Jack, feels about Allie in the movie, I think it is a waste of Gaga’s beautiful strong voice to sing this kind of music.
If you want to hear her at her Best Buy the soundtrack to A Star is Born.
