  1. Yeah I really have no idea when I’ll get my shirt and bag , I’ve sort of given up thinking about it.
  2. That's such a shame but makes perfect sense. It really baffled me why Graham Norton was there on something which wasn't going to be filmed. I don't really know which reason seems more likely- I think it's perfectly possible she and her team were worried about more bad press if they both feel her voice isn't up to scratch right now. She came across really very well on the night at the Ally Pally and I'm sure sales would have gone up a lot because of it.
  3. I think that’s fine considering it would have been #1 in many other weeks. Glad it’s radio 2’s album of the week next week! A few of the songs would sound great on radio.
  4. Song is such a gem. I'm confident she'll do it on tour, and we'll all be chanting come alive come alive... while we try to decipher what she's singing so we can finally find out the lyrics.
  5. I hope I hear this in london gay bars and clubs. I'll get my life
  6. I still have to bow down to this song. How she come up with a sound/style that's unique to her this far into her career and deliver it so wonderfully?
  7. I like this one overall, but it's taking longer to click than some others. I find the melody a bit awkward, and some of the lyrics are clunky. It's nice to see so many people enjoying it though, it's a very interesting song and has a special "aura" about it.
  8. I like this one . I find Maluma's voice sexy as f*ck. Bit messy but I'll take it.
  9. +1 Also 'for once I didn't have to hide.......... myself' I also like 'I'm in the sky where I ought to be yeah... I been watching you'.
  10. The second photo on her recent instagram has me floored. Might be one of my faves of her ever.
  11. Given that much of their focus and measures of success is on tour receipts over the past few albums, and now that seems to be being effected (although we will have to wait and see how the tour does- I still expect it to be very lucrative- even if they lower the astronomical prices by a decent amount), maybe we'll see more put into radio connections and more of a media charm offensive from her. I can't pretend to know how that all works, though; maybe there's nothing at all she can do about radio... If she can't bring in the huge crowds anymore, I suspect that'll worry team Madge a lot more than if she can get radio 1 to play Medellin, but it seems the two are becoming more and more connected, in combination with a murdering of her reputation thanks to Eurovision and the ensuing press from it. Hope it hits no.2 and sees off Capaldi at least.
  12. Yeah it surprises me too. I wonder how much his sales would have been if the album hadn’t come out on Father’s Day release week?
  13. Radio don't touch her anymore (bar radio 2 with Medellin I guess), Eurovision did a number on her reputation so much that it's the first thing that people think of when they think of her, and her appearance on Graham Norton apparently didn't endear people to her (I haven't watched it). Not really a surprise to me that it's losing momentum quickly. 'Crave' in particular should have been massive on radio if ageism weren't playing a role.
  14. Sadly, I just think I Rise and Future will be met with muted reception from the audience, many of whom -- even people who aren't too keen on her-- will be excited to see her as she's a living legend. I Rise is one of the only two songs on the record I'm not keen on and Future did not go down well at Eurovision (though I think it would have been a lot better if people had enjoyed Like a Prayer before it), so to have those songs represent the album and the Madame X tour is quite worrying to me.
  15. I reckon, as it acts as a closer for the album, I Rise will probably be how she closes the set too...
  16. Genuinely think she should do God Control +3 oldies. It would nice way to show everyone, especially some sneery gays who think she's lost it post-Confessions, that her new stuff can stand toe to toe with the classics. Still time for her to change her mind I suppose.
  17. BIL has really grown on me and I kinda love it now but, still Medellin which I think is great. Not really a big Soltera fan but her delivery in the opening of that song kills me everytime. "That's right"
  18. Yeah I don't rly want Eurovision-like feedback for the US. (obviously on much smaller scale but still)
  19. Yeah, the review pretty much slips in a takedown of her entire career and dismisses it all as some "stealing, dumbing it down and pandering it to the masses". Absolute garbage.
  20. I just finished it. Christ, whoever wrote it really just doesn't like her does he? The somewhat oddly gleeful "oh she doesn't make hits anymore" beginning would never be written about her if she were a man. Is there anyone else 37 years in who has reviews of their current work opening like this? 'many of Madame X’s songs trip all over themselves to change course and offer something new every few seconds for the attention-span deficient'. Talk about trying to colour complex song structure as a negative. I would argue that it requires a greater attention span in order to appreciate songs that change course as much as Madame X songs do. It's a strength that the album has. And the section about her appropriation, I mean, what exactly could she do that these people would be happy with? The notion that you should just stay inside your box and never be influenced by anything outside of what is considered your appropriate cultural creed is just... So limiting. I appreciate that some of the lyrics come across ham-fisted but they truly are coloured in the worst light possible in this review.
  21. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/madonna-madame-x/ 4.8 . Lame.
  22. Obviously will be her most controversial video since American Life (original). Quite excited, not sure what to think yet. It does look explicit, the camera lingering on a bloody Madonna. The point is how guns so senselessly ruin joy I suppose... Her explanation is ironic in how she talks about deciding to go to a disco as an "escape" from the downfall of humanity, only to end up witnessing it firsthand. I'm cautiously excited.
  23. Meh, oh well. Hopefully she'll get no.2. There's much worse artists to lose the top spot to than Bruce.
