I have never seen anyone refer to Chromatica as a 'house' album or describe it as 'house' music. Liddo's barely used the term until Break My Soul was released.

 

Do you consider Chromatica to be a 'house' album?

there are house elements on a few songs. 

 

I would say Alice is the closest to straight house on the album. and the original version of free woman.

It has elements of house but it's mostly a pop/EDM record, little monsters need to stop thinking Gaga invented the world every time a major artist drops their lead.

it's run of the mill electro pop that she has been rehashing since 2011 :coffee2:

Lots of reviews pointed out how Chromatica was House/House influenced on its release. It’s not something that just came out of nowhere, so people referring to the album as House/House influenced now isn’t some outrageous or surprising thing :rip:

Well what else would it be? 

If you don't consider that house then you know nothing about the genre. The thing about house is that it's not just ONE sound, there are many different types of house that are used on Chromatica. There are also different genres of EDM as well

It’s definitely house influenced which Bloodp*p even stated, I think it’s more prevalent in the demos that leaked which I wish we got more of instead of whatever the hell bloodp*p was doing in the end result.

It's house inspired pop, but ultimately I'd say it's just a pop record, more than anything.

its just that chromatica has been referred to as a house body of work more in the last 24 hours than in 2 years of release

It's house influenced clearly. Not full house since Gaga make pop songs infused with other genres and subgenres.

Yes some of the songs are very house inspired. Espexially Babylon and Alice and Free Woman.

 

I loved it.

the early demos were giving more but they made them more pop for the album

Haven't heard it since its realise week, but from what I remember it wasn't really house. Although a couple of tracks gave housy vibes. 

 

Who cares though. Chromatica wasn't impactful during its release week, let alone two years later.

Liddos were calling it a "love letter to 90s house" on release week to digress from its poor quality. It's not a new label and the album has indeed a lot of house influence.

Pretty much. 

 

It's a watered down, run of the mill, formulaic Pop radio friendly music with House decorations. Maybe songs like Replay are most successful at balancing that but songs like Alice, Free Woman, Fun Tonight, Sour Candy, 100 Doves etc. are just so inexcusably basic :rip: Choruses like Enigma sound like some Swedish Eurovision losing entry :rip: It's also fun seeing one of the most persistent fan bases that took the atmost pride in stanning an ExPerMinTAL and RiSK TakiNg ArtIsTe settle for 2:30 length repetitive basic catering to streaming songs :coffee: Even some MDNA songs had more ideas to them. :cm:

But people are saying the only reason Beyonce is releasing house music is because Chromatica brought the genre to the mainstream with hits like ROM.

No. I would call it 2011/2012 EDM. House music is like the stuff Mariah did with David Morales back in the 90s

The poll :skull: does ATRL not know what is the sound of house music? I’m so perplexed, cause many of the songs are in-your-face house. Like the house beats are blasting out of the speakers like crazy

 

This album is 100% a house / dance album. There is literally no denying it when more than half the songs have THE classic and standard house beats and sounds on it and the house music tempo.

Gaga’s voice maybe gives it a different poppier twist and there’s a few songs like stupid love that lean to more of a dance pop sound but most of the album is house and anyone who ever listens to house music (I go to house clubs every weekend) will hear the sounds right away

Yep. She immediately ran into the studio upon hearing it. Unfortunately Ariana refused to collab with her on a lead, so she settled for Freeda
