Which blockbuster era was bigger overall?

 

TFM/ TF or 1989?

 

I combined both Gaga albums because they were basically the same era.

1989 felt more solid and lasted longer but my fave's tfm was the biggest era in pop ever. i think both get the shot.

Embarrassing for anyone who voted 1989 over TFM. The cultural impact of TFM literally changed pop music forever.

1989. More acclaimed, better/more cohesive album, timeless sound, huge tour, massive singles, massive sales (despite coming out 5 years later in a worse sales climate), bigger music videos.

Album sales: TFM 15 million vs 10 million, although the former is basically 2 albums, it wins

Single sales: TFM

Acclaim: 1989

Touring: 1989

 

If you add impact then TFM is bigger otherwise, they're even.

The Fame and The Fame Monster are 2 separate albums and 2 separate eras. 

 

Anyhow, both albums separately are bigger than 1989. Although it's not a competition as both Swift and Gaga have some of the biggest albums of the century.

On a global scale, TF/TFM >>> 1989 >>> TFM

 

In the US it was 1989, even over TF/TFM.

 

Both blockbuster eras tho :clap3:

This is not true :toofunny2:

 

They’re about even in general if we combine 2 albums from Gaga which IMO is the same “era”.

Yeah, 1989. Sold better than in a worse sales climate (mid 10s is worse than late 00s) and sold an huge numbers - 10 million worldwide.

TF/TFM ofc. Maybe 1989 could've been bigger in the US, idk, but in the rest of the world it was definitely Gaga's era.

Does your knowledge of pop start in 2008 and end in 2010 :deadbanana2: 

 

It isn't even the biggest pop era of the last 10 years, let alone ever

If TFM was longer i would pick it. It lost steam after Telephone, whereas 1989s 4th single Bad Blood felt like a lead single

I never understood the whole TF/TFM thing. They're 2 completely different albums :skull: How does she get away with combining them as 1 era?
