I only listened to it all the way through very recently, so that's kind of why this has taken so long to appear, and I can't stop coming up with songfic plots and such for half of these songs. *sigh* But anyway, here we are, taken track by track.

So, uh, overall, it's an awesome album. I love how it puts itself on the edge and doesn't shy away from 'dangerous' topics like sexuality, feminism, politics, and religion, but she doesn't sacrifice her artistic vision for any of her views, either. Fantastically put together, heavy in its content, and shot through with very danceable beats, Born This Way is a phenomenal third album. I know I can't wait for either another single/video, or for her next album. My top five tracks are:
1. "Bloody Mary"
2. "You and I"
3. "Marry the Night"
5. "Born This Way"
And I'd like to wish everyone a happy new year!
