On this Lady Gaga remix album, 10 producers and DJs sink their teeth into her meaty catalog — with predictably uneven results. Stuart Price gives "Paparazzi" a breezy shuffle that diffuses the track's gritty tension, Marilyn Manson roars unnecessarily on "Love­game," and Glam as You add a bloopy bounce to one of Gaga's coolest grooves, "The Fame." Passion Pit do the most effective surgery on "Telephone," sliding arcade synths under Chipmunks-speed vocals — a makeover beautiful and grotesque enough to earn Gaga's seal of approval.

"It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
