“The Edge Of Glory” (Video)


    It’s fairly undeniable that “The Edge of Glory” is one of the standout cuts on Born This Way—it even starts off sounding a little like the Art of Noise’s classic “Moments in Love.” The official video for the song is here now, but even that’s causing consternation among hardcore Gaga acolytes. Popjustice, who have pushed pretty hard for Gaga right from the beginning, even call it “no good.” It feels like a lower budget effort (and maybe even somewhat rushed) compared to past Gaga video epics. Most of it simply features her cavorting on a fire escape and…well, that’s it. Did something go wrong here? Popjustice notes the director either resigned or was fired and the whole shoot was condensed down to just one day, which might explain things.
