I am so pissed over how fucking underrated the whole fucking album is, because the album is really amazing lj1

SO much was on form with this album. Artwork, songs. I think the track listing and those delegated to the deluxe disc could have had some tweaking, with some bonus songs being moved to the main disc. (I pretend Bobblehead doesn't exist).

 

The fact that the album and the whole era was cut short was so disappointing. I can just imagine Woo Hoo and My Girls both having amazing videos. To this date, Birds of Prey, Stronger Than Ever and You Lost Me and some of the best songs she has recorded.

 

And don't even get me started on Glam and Sex for Breakfast - LOVE!

 

Sadly I think the whole project stalled before it even built any momentum. NMT wasn't the BEST opening single after a long break (although its still amazing) and the Gaga comparisons, with her own massive success at the time, just sealed Bionic's doom.

 

IMO she should have just released Woo Hoo second (with a video) as it may still have performed well. I hate that her record label keep pushing for a ballard as a second single, trying to follow in the Footsteps of Beautiful. That's what killed the momentum for B2B!

if i'm being real, she sabotaged herself hottie1   it's easier to blame someone else for your own failures (though im not implying she's doing that here, maybe she's just going with the flow, but i'm sure she's self-aware that she wanted to promote Burlesque more than Bionic and also she cared about her family more at that point in time). 

 

bionic may have flopped, but that doesn't mean she had to abandon the project. she could have made more amazing videos, she's not an upcoming struggling artist, she had the ability to turn things around with her own money, but she didn't and she has nobody to blame but herself... i guess she had that "i'm not a chart-chaser" mentality since bionic.  I Am, little dreamer, Elastic Love, Monday Morning, Birds of prey... so many gems to choose from and none sounded like Gaga's sound at that time.

 

it's the same with liberation... album promotion forgotten on day 0... seriously who does that?   it's easy to say, "we have the album to listen to". 

 

but simply going to see her live on this tour already made me appreciate Maria so much--a song i didn't care about before seeing her on tour. giving fans visuals help raise the album's likability... in my opinion. The Maria opening and visuals are so amazing, this song is stuck in my head more than Deserve.

I mean, Perez really did a number on it (and he was very influential back then), but then again I think higher powers also had an influence in branding her as the Gaga copycat, and the fact that she easily gave up on the project made it dead on arrival xtina11 

Yes, she was going through a divorce and family issues, and that also contributed, but I really do feel if she fought for Bionic, it could've done better. Many factors contributed to it being a flop that it is.

 

Still a flawless album tho oprah1

Bionic was REALLY ahead of it’s time but NMT mv killed the era IMO cause she got a lot of crap for Gaga comparisons. She should have moved on from that and push another single (and there are so many fantastic songs on the album that would do well on the charts). #JusticeForBionic
