Oh God, she's gone back to her American Life phase where every other word in the song is either "I" or "me."

She's also gone back to her American Life phase of sucking.

Album appears to be in *ahem* circulation now. GGW was not just a bad choice to open the album, but a bad choice altogether (this can't be restated often enough).

The album is shockingly pretty damn brilliant. The singles are somehow the worst songs on the album (which for someone with 30 years experience in the industry and for being well Madonna is ridiculous).

The acoustic "Love Spent" on one of the deluxe editions is pretty goddamn great.

"B-Day Song" is like some ridiculous joke and I absolutely adore it

so is this one of those cases where you have to get the deluxe editions to get the better tracks ?

has she ever attempted a song like "B-Day Song"? It's like ABBA attempting a kid's song played on live instruments by Muppets.

"i'm addicted" is pretty awesome

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 26 March 2012 15:06 (six years ago) Permalink

and i'm not sure about "gang bang" but it's... genuinely disturbing

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 26 March 2012 15:10 (six years ago) Permalink

"gang bang" is the best thing here imo

"i don't give a" and "i'm addicted" are the other two that stood out and if i'm being honest the chorus of "give me all your luvin'" is stuck in my head a great deal of the time. it sounds less good when i actually play it, because madonna's voice is a total husk now, it drags down decent songs/fails to elevate catchy-but-basic bubblegum tunes/sinks each of the ballads.

"i'm addicted" is great and sort of what i wanted this whole record to sound like, given the title mdna

"Gang Bang" might grow on me but right now it's just super annoying

haaaaaa I just got to the dubstep bridge

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:09 (six years ago) Permalink

well this whole song is just spectacularly falling apart

I just cannot take "DRIVE BITCH/NOW DIE BITCH" very seriously

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:11 (six years ago) Permalink

"I'm Addicted" is actually a good song

After the two singles and "Gang Bang", I was not expecting this

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:13 (six years ago) Permalink

"superstar" = worst madonna lyrics yet?

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:14 (six years ago) Permalink

well "I'm Addicted" was a good song until she ran out of ideas at the end and started aimlessly chanting "M! D! N! A"

holy fuck I am 30 seconds into "Turn Up The Radio" and I want to murder everyone I have ever known so that they don't accidentally hear it

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:16 (six years ago) Permalink

hahahahaha "i don't give a" is awesome, choral stuff at the end is so ott

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:18 (six years ago) Permalink

like, there are a bunch of components here on paper that I should really, really like, but it's put together in the most fucking annoying manner possible and I'm just sitting here thinking "SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD"

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:19 (six years ago) Permalink

don't share your hate for "turn up the radio," dan. it's just kind of nothing

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:20 (six years ago) Permalink

although "Gimme All Your Luvin" is even more annoying, lol

"Some Girls" sounds like an anonymous diva house remix, which automatically makes it the second best song I've heard on this album so far

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:21 (six years ago) Permalink

okay "Superstar" is just PATHETIC

hoo boy

"I Don't Give A" reminds me a little too much of "Top That!" from "Teen Witch":

Yeah, I think I'ma skip this one.

it's better than hard candy?

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:30 (six years ago) Permalink

I don't think I'd even give it that, based on what I've heard so far

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:32 (six years ago) Permalink

So then it's officially the worst album of all time. Check.

hot and brothered (Eric H.), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:35 (six years ago) Permalink

had the coda on "I Don't Give A" been the intro, it might have saved the song

"I'm A Sinner" sounds like it actually has quantizing issues, like they couldn't get the components of the loop to match up correctly; it's still the third-best song I've heard on this album

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:35 (six years ago) Permalink

"Love Spent" starts with a banjo, that's a good sign

haha and once that goes away the song gets much much much better

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:40 (six years ago) Permalink

did she just say "Frankly, if my name was Benjamin/We wouldn't be in the mess we're in"

oh Madonna

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:41 (six years ago) Permalink

"I want you to hold me like you hold your money/Hold me 'til there's nothing left"

this is still the third- or fourth-best song on the album

oh god that lyric made my jaw drop when i first heard it

this is EASILY the best song on the album so far

okay what the fuck, "Falling Free" just started and why do I like the ballads so much??

Lyrically, it's still kind of inane but at least she sounds like she has a personality and the melody does more than just sit on one note for entire verses

this really surprises me b/c i think even more than the underwritten songs, lyrical clunkers and uninspiring producers, madonna's terrible terrible delivery is what sinks the album - someone with a semblance of character could've rescued even the inane songs but she sounds bored and rigid and characterless for the most part, and this is especially the case where she's required to sound emotional (the ballads) or carefree (the bubblegum)

lex pretend, Monday, 26 March 2012 18:52 (six years ago) Permalink

I'm with lex re her voice. It's as if this is what happens to billions spent on voice lessons and locution: after fifteen years the warranty runs out and she forgot to keep the receipt.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:55 (six years ago) Permalink

I completely agree that Madonna's delivery is terrible right up until the last two songs on the main album; "Beautiful Killer" is also much less irritating than the lion's share of the album.

haha oh my god "I Fucked Up" on the other hand is absolutely the terrible flat affect horseshit delivery you are calling out
