Born This Way: The Remix

On one hand, a Gaga remix disc makes sense: Her songs are supple and tuneful enough to handle whatever the beat doctors toss at them. Then again, why mess with Born This Way’s carefully sculpted Eighties pop-rock wallop? The album has some diverting moments. Goldfrapp's down- tempo "Judas" is less a remix than a smart cover, and the Weeknd and Illangelo re-imagine "Marry the Night" as a strobe-y, atmospheric R&B epic. But there are two or three duds for each winner – like the bludgeoning "Scheiße (Guena LG Club Remix)," a gratuitous exercise that strives to make a dance-floor thumper out of a song that was born that way.
