Madame X album general discussion in ARCHIVE - The MADAME X Forum Posted September 8, 2019 I listened a lot in the beginning, after the release. Now not so much. I thought about it the other day and I have no clear answer as to why. It might be that the sound of parts of this album is sonically quite "messy". I understand that that is what she aimed for, but I'm not so fond of it. Although I really like the fact that she felt inspired and creative on this album. I doesn't really sound like anything else out there. But I think many of the critics were right when they made clear that people will be divided over this album. On the other hand that's what artists do, they follow their path. I think that's where she is right now. I am however, as someone else pointed out, a little disappointed in the marketing of the album. She hasn't been very visible in the media and when she has been she's seemed very nervous and I really don't understand why.
