I disagree, Born This Way was great and I didnt like The Fame era.
I guess I'm one of those new fans who was drawn in by the last era like people mentioned above.
I don't know what I'd like to see in this new album. Something other people arent doing would be nice, but at the same time not so distant as to flop. I think we can expect moments of darkness and moments of bubbly, fizzy pop. But I'll probably like it either way. I like her voice.
