|Lady Gaga in Toronto - March 2011|
With news of Lady Gaga's new Single Judas being rush-released for today on iTunes, Monsters everywhere have been clamoring to get to their Computers.
Does it live up to its hype? Well, it is a bit of a Grower admittedly. One part Bad Romance and one part pre-Glam Kylie in its "wo-oh-oh" bits, Judas delivers Gaga's promise of Avant-Garde Techno Rock, with tons to listen to. Its arrangement is quite busy and this obviously is much darker fare than prior Single Born this Way, which I'm still absorbing in all honesty. Most interesting of all is her decision to go Reggae in her Rihanna-like delivery of the Verses.
And how about that hook, "I'm just a horny fool/And Baby it's so cruel/I'm still in love with Judas, Baby"? Unforgettable.
