  1. HeartBreakCity was solely produced by Avicii, but damn that demo 3 was REALLY good and it sounded a bit more like him. Borrowed Time and Devil Pray were probably the best reworks. Messiah and RH probably would have gotten a proper rework had there been more time. I also feel that Addicted and BS were rushed.
  2. I'm so glad Avicii got eradicated from this album pretty much. He simply used the same beats he used on his own tracks and re-used them. He is one-dimensional and repetitive. Madonna made an album that didn't sound like the people that produced it but the sound she was going for. The real genius behind his tracks are his songwriting team, including Carl Falk.
  3. Illuminati Iconic (Part 2) Bitch, I'm Madonna Best Night S.E.X. Holy Water Inside Out (Demo) Unapologetic Bitch Veni Vidi Vici Rebel Heart Body Shop Joan of Arc (Acostic) Hold Tight (Demo 5) Devil Pray Ghosttown Messiah (Loud Orchestra Demo) HeartBreakCity (Demo 3) Living for Love Wash All Over Me No abridged version, Super deluxe with the same bonus tracks, but BS closer to the demo and Queen included.
  4. Body Shop and it's not even a contest. I'm embarrassed thinking about the days when CS was my fav HC song. The song is still a demo tbh.
  5. Well, it's because Demo Castellon did the mastering/mixing again. He really is the most amateurish idiot she has ever worked with imo. The funny part is, that he mixes her voice the same way he mixes the vocals of his wife, Nelly Furtado who sounds like a squirrel most of the time. That results in him putting the emphasis of the vocals on the high notes which takes away the volume of her voice and makes it sound very thin. There's a fan made mix of L4L on M-Infinity which uses her unmixed demo vocals and my GOD it sounds fucking amazing!!!
  6. Okay I genuinely love this entire album. It's really hard to pick only five songs. As of now (They change all the time) 1. Devil Pray 2. Holy Water 3. Living for Love 4. Hold Tight / Ghosttown 5. Bitch, I'm Madonna Honorable mentions: Body Shop, Wash All Over Me, HBC, S.E.X., Best Night
  7. And thank god it wasn't. It really falls flat compared to the other tracks of the album. It will be a great live moment but the song itself is just boring as hell, regardless of it's version. The album version is less cheesy imo.
  8. 1. Illuminati 2. Bitch, I'm Madonna 3. Best Night 4. S.E.X. 5. Holy Water 6. Inside Out (Demo) 7. Unapologetic Bitch 8. Iconic (Part 2) 9. Veni Vidi Vici 10. Rebel Heart 11. Joan of Arc (Acoustic) 12. Body Shop 13. Devil Pray 14. Hold Tight 15. Ghosttown 16. Messiah 17. HeartBreakCity (New Vox Demo) 18. Living for Love (A better mix between the glorious Demo 3 and album version) 19. Wash All Over Me Disc 2: 21. The One That Got Away 22. Beautiful Scars (Demo) 23. Graffiti Heart 24. Borrowed Time 25. Queen The two sides perfectly showcased through appropriate and cohesive sequencing, nearly no Avicii and the superior version of the songs included. The standard edition doesn't exist.
  9. Still hate the demo. I'm glad she went for something that was a bit more timeless. I think the demo version just sounds "thin" and distracts from the meaning of the song, just like the dance version of Wash All Over Me.
  10. I'm back after quite a long hiatus. I have to admit that this album really left me speechless for a while. I barely knew what to say because I really loved it to bits. It has it's weak spots but even those are better than anything that came after 2005. 1. Ray of Light 2. Like a Prayer 3. Rebel Heart 4. American Life 5. Confessions on a Dance Floor 6. Music 7. Madonna 8. True Blue 9. Hard Candy 10. Bedtime Stories 11. Like a Virgin 12. MDNA 13. Erotica
  11. Queen is mediocore and melodramatic #justsayin The song that should have been replaced is the awful version of Beautiful Scars.
  12. How do you rate song a half star on iTunes? Not judging you but that's so clicheed of you, sorry.

  14. Oh yes, definitely! So far it has not entered the "untouchable three but it might actually replace COADF after a while. I love every single track on the album and that has never been the case with any Madonna album. I can't get into Messiah, but being a 19-track album this is quite impressive. Like a Prayer Ray of Light Confessions on a Dance Floor Rebel Heart American Life Music True Blue Madonna Bedtime Stories Hard Candy Erotica MDNA Like a Virgin I wonder what everyone's ranking would be had the demos not leaked 3 months before the album's release.
  15. So it's not good because she decided to not go the safe route and be commercial and rather go for something she felt was more befitting for the song and the album? I personally never felt that Rebel Heart was a commercial song to begin with. It's very intimate and personal. It's not single material...it's too precious to be wasted as a single that would flop these days. I find it funny how ppl complain about Madonna not being commercial-sounding but whenever she does she's being generic, boring and bandwagon-jumping.
  16. I will never get over how beautiful this fucking song is. Perfection from start to finish.
  17. This song is one of the most empowering songs on the album. I prefer Part 2 but this version is just as good. I don't really know what to say about it but it really is an amazing song. This will be one of the best parts of the tour.
  18. I'm honestly gonna kill the next person I see complaining about the album version not sounding like the Avicii Mix. NONE of the songs on the album have those cheap recycled synths and instruments he used on all his tracks. It would have sounded completely out-of-place. In fact, if you listen to his song "Wake Me Up" you cam hear the stems he recycled for this song. M saved the album and especially this song by ripping it off of those annoying synths. The way it is now is not the best it could have been, I agree. But it was never the best song to begin with. It's cute and it has a nice melody but it's not as edgy as the rest of the album. A re-work alá Devil Pray would have been nice but I think the stripped version makes more sense paired with the retrospective aspect of the lyrics.
  19. This song is probably my least-favourite song on the album. It's lyrically great and the melody is quite intriguing but it just won't click for me. I probably expected too much from it. Anyway it's a great song and it deserves it's spot on the album but I just don't like it that much.
  20. Out of all the cute love songs this is the best and most interesting one she has ever done. Comparing herself to an old car that needs to get taken care of. It's such a beautiful metaphor, especially with the other retrospective songs in mind. "I've been through so much and I've travelled for so long...who will rescue me and fix me up a bit?".
  21. This song is one of the tracks that had major improvement after being reworked. Probably the most drastical rework out of all the tracks and the most befitting one. The song itself talks about dealing with mortality and has a very apocalyptical feel to it. The militant beat even adds to the meaning of it and I'm SO glad she got rid of the cheap dance instrumental that drowned the vocals and the song and distracted from it's actual meaning. The perfect album ender!
  22. THIS SONG IS THE BEST "Rebel" SONG ON THE ALBUM. Yes, it is. It's sexy, it's cheeky, it's pure Madonna. The juxtaposition of religious imagery and sex is what Madonna, the artist is all about. hell, even her name and the brand "Madonna" stands for exactly this metaphor. The production is sublime and the song is damn catchy. The lyrics are slightly silly but they're not happy-go-lucky silly. They're pervert-donna at her best. Holy Water is her essence, in the most literal sense.
