Perfect Illusion is Lady Gaga’s first track since her acting hiatus that led her to star in Ryan Murphy’s FX drama American Horror Story.
While all the things that Gaga normally does right are present here, it’s missing the magic of her previous work. And that chorus is horrendous. Even her devout Monsters admit to hating it initially in the YouTube comments, before eventually fawning over it of course.
Its not a really even a bad track, but it will leave the casual Gaga fan scratching their heads and asking “Is this it?” Save your money here, and stream it if you’re curious.
2.5/5 – Nothing Special. Stream It.
