It’s finally here! I was a huuuge fan of Madonna’s "Hard Candy" and her "Confessions on a Dancefloor" album in 2008 and 2005, respectively. And the list goes on with “American Life”, “Music” and “Ray of Light” somehow finding the way to my soul. I know, Madonna is too old for her image and she can’t age with dignity, but that doesn’t change the high quality of her music!
“MDNA” debuted at No. 1 of the US Billboard Charts being her like 100th album to do so. :) In Europe, however, it has not found that great of an applause. I have to admit I am a tiny bit disappointed that Madonna hasn’t discovered a new style of music for this one, but you can’t always expect her to do so.
With collaborations with Martin Solveig, Benny Benassi and more, this album guarantees us to have some groovy dance-moves in it and I absolutely love “Superstar”, “Love Spent” and “Some Girls”. However, the new single “Girl Gone Wild” does it as well for me as does the Golden Globe winning “Masterpiece”. The only real disappointments are “Turn Up The Radio” and “I F***d up”, with “Beautiful Killer” and “Best Friends” convincing on a quieter level.
For a Madonna album, it is indeed not a revelation, but an album with SO many groovy, funky and mass-friendly numbers with great melodies can’t be so bad. And it certainly isn’t. :) Please make one more, Madonna!
