Review : LADY GAGA - Poker Face
BillboardIt was a long, slow climb to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for Grammy Award-nominated Lady GaGa's debut, "Just Dance," which took nine months to reach the summit in January. It looks as if the second release, "Poker Face," from the album "The Fame," won't have as long a wait. Once again, hooks are aplenty, with '80s-inspired synthesizers, robotic verses and a warm, sunny hook in the chorus, which is even more addictive than the previous single. Already, the track has reached No. 1 in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Finland, Norway and Sweden. While comparisons abound—Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Madonna—Lady GaGa has a singular sound and style. With a focused artistic vision, a swagger in her interview style and above all, a fantastic collection of diverse pop nuggets, GaGa is playing her cards right—and "Poker" is another obvious ace. —Chris Williams...full text
Top40It looks like Lady GaGa won't have much trouble keeping the "Just Dance" party going on her next single. That synth heavy electro feel is back, and GaGa has another brief breakdown to try and keep things interesting throughout.

WikipediaDaniel Incognito of Sputnikmusic reviewed the song saying "Poker Face shares the rest of the album's (The Fame) lively personality – the synths being anything but level. The vocal texture in the breakdown takes an eccentric turn, but strangely has a nice alluring quality to it".
The Times in a review for The Fame said that "Poker Face" was one of the finest moments of the album with its love-as-card-game cheek.
BBC reviewed the "strut-tastic" single as "expressing her overwhelming desire for celebrity and fortune."
Nick Levine, music editor of Digitalspy also praised the single saying "'Poker Face', one of the best tracks here, (The Fame) features both passable innuendo ("I wanna roll with him, a hard pair we will be") and childish, half-arsed nonsense ("I'm bluffin' with my muff")." 
Poker Face peaked at number one on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart and has stayed there for 8 weeks. It is the second single by Lady Gaga to do so after "Just Dance" which, however, spent just one week at the summit. After 16 weeks on the chart Poker Face sold over 165,000 copies going 2x Platinum on the ARIA Charts.
