Oct 5, 2018The songs from the early portion of the movie are almost impenetrably perfect. ...

The music Gaga helps write for this stretch in Ally’s career, where she’s still brunette and performing with a man she is falling in love with, is gorgeous--romantic without being trite and powerful.

Bradley Cooper's voice is incredible, it is amazing to see how an actor can actually be a good singer. For day-one fans, Gaga also gave them some dancy pop tracks, such as 'Heal Me' and 'Hair Body Face' produced by long-time collaborator DJ White Shadows.… Expand
