  1. Her voice!

    Actually, Ray of Light was above her range then. Orbit has commented on this many times. He felt that the strain actually created a beautiful effect. I agree. One thing that has always impressed me with Madonna is that her vocals are clear. This trend has remained throughout her career. There are very few times when the lyrics are in distinguishable. Janet Jackson for instance, definitely requires lyric inclusions in her material. I agree with you 110% that God is Love and maybe Revolution should have made the cut. Not bitching but she could have left S.E.X. off and included both songs. God is Love is far more Rebel and far more Heart than S.E.X. S.E.X. is fun though as a one off demo sort of thing.

    https://www.facebook.com/sullivan.sanford Let's all meet in Miami!
  3. Miami January 23

    Count my husband and me in. We will be there both nights.

    Let's do it. I will be there both nights.
  5. Her voice!

    The writing on Rebel Heart is out of this world too. I think twelve of the songs are among the best written songs that she has ever produced. I love me some M- 1. Living for Love 2. Devil Pray 3. Ghosttown 4. Joan of Arc 5. Heartbreak City 6. Inside Out 7. Wash All Over Me 8. Messiah 9. Rebel Heart 10. Borrowed Time 11. Beautiful Scars 12. Queen

    M has a fantastic catalog. My faves 83-present...... Borderline Angel [Extended Dance Mix] Open Your Heart Like a Prayer Justify My Love Deeper and Deeper Secret You’ll See You Must Love Me Frozen Don’t Tell Me Love Profusion [Headcleanr Rock Mix] Let it Will Be (Paper Faces Mix) Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You I’m a Sinner (William Orbit Mix) Messiah Queen Joan of Arc certainly follows this trend. Long live the Queen.

    Excellent taste but I have to go with Love Profusion (although I love Die Another Day) and I'm a Sinner (almost a tie with Love Spent).
  8. Perhaps not indie but I agree with the general idea started in this thread. M is very experimental with this album and much of it comes across as artistic rather than commercial. Rebel Heart thumbs its' nose at the traditional pop music industry.
  9. Ghosttown to be a sleeper hit? Discuss

    And Blaming piracy is silly since her streams are pitiful as well. Piracy is real. Streaming also is affected. Why would anyone stream a song that was in their library? Your argument doesn't even make sense.
  10. Ghosttown to be a sleeper hit? Discuss

    Ghosttown is great. So was Living for Love. Her music is really quite excellent at the moment. She clearly still outsells most artists. YES. I SAID IT. Madonna still outsells most artists. Rebel Heart, MDNA, and Hard Candy all outsold MOST artists. Every Madonna record since 1983 has outsold most artists. Interest in Madonna is not the problem. Sales have not been her problem either. Lots of music is played that has far undersold M-s records. Is the industry ageist? Hell yes. Sexist? Hell yes. Still, Madonna is putting the industry to shame by achieving mammoth success despite being ignored by radio. Her fans are all over the world. Meghan Trainor, Iggy Azalea, and Ariana Grande are being played on infinite repeat but none of them will ever be Madonna. M has had her love affair with the radio. In my opinion, her music is much better now. I'm a Sinner is a far more sophisticated song than Lucky Star or Material Girl. M made a choice with Justify My Love to be a rebel. She chose to actually say something socially meaningful. M made a choice with the Erotica album to be an artist and not a caged, pop princess. M made a choice during American Life to reject her prior personas and radio dropped her. Mainstream media loves Madonna's HEART but does not understand her REBEL. Not being played non-stop on radio has not hurt Madonna. Perhaps, it even has kept the interest alive. She has a mystique that other artists cannot compete with. Her tours are legend and you see how every audience responds to her (including the BRITS performance). She is idolized and revered. She is not the flavor of the moment. Thank God for that as it allows her the platform to be more creative than all of her counterparts. She is an ICON. If commercial success (which Madonna still has) and radio play are your only barometers then blame the fan base. Let's face it. People steal her music by the droves. There are people on this forum and others that steal from her catalog and refuse to truly support her. I have actually read countless posts relaying the idea that they like the new album almost enough to buy. Do people have to buy? No but they sure as hell do not have to steal. Why should she invest in singles and massive videos to entertain thieves? If every person that stole her demos this go around actually now bought the record...Madonna's Rebel Heart would be number one next week. Some people would rather bitch and steal. That's not Live Nation's fault. That's not Guy Oseary's fault. That's not the record industry's fault. And that's not M-s fault. PIRACY IS WRONG AND HINDERS ART. IF YOU STEAL YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

    I am going both nights.
  12. M is quite the chameleon. LUV her. She actually has ideas behind her art. When I heard her explain the sexy clergy clothes on the reinvention da ncers, I was amazed. It wasn't to offend or just to be artsy. She was making a commentary that religion can destroy and divide us rather than promote humanity. She is a true artist.
  13. Coachella thread [continued]

    I love it. It is questionable and the questions mean that we have our M back. No more English Manor Maiden (although I love her too). It is like Madonna putting away a persona and choosing another. Queen of reinvention. Never liked the grilz or the erotic gold tooth but I love both Dita and M-dolla. It is all about playing a character. I love all of her personas. She is like Roger from American Dad. Luv it all.
  14. Hold Tight!

    I was less impressed with the demo (liked it but didn't love it). The album version is Epic but so is the MNEK version. I love this song now. The changes were made, I'm sure because of the leaks, but it really worked for this one.
  15. If she performs, I hope she does Iconic. It could be exciting and appropriate for the boring award show audiences.
  16. Miami January 23

    Yeah. Let the Miami Nationers meet up. I will be there both nights.
  17. I thought that M could not sell Bitch I'm Madonna but I was wrong. Very wrong. What a fun performance. Impressive Instant. Makes me want to get up and do something.

    My fave on the entire album (including demos). I was disappointed when it did not make the Deluxe 19 but was thrilled when it was included on the SD. In my Playlist, I play it right after Living for Love. I can't get enough of Borrowed Time. XOXOX
  19. Rate the Ghosttown video

    I am only giving this a 10 because I can't give it a 12.
  20. People will complain but two great videos from this album already. We could have got a world flag video , a Miles Away, Get Together, Give it 2 Me, or a Jump video. But we didn't. Visually stunning and the song...let's face it is off the chain. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT of it.
  21. I think that it is the grilz with the cross. Makes the gap look big.
  22. It is gorgeous! A video to rival her 90's videos for certain. Love live the Queen!

    I concur. Awesome post and welcome to the Nation.
  24. Miami January 23

    MADONNA NATION BITCHES NEED TO MEET UP IN MIAMI! We should raise the roof. Any Madonna parties/etc in Miami during that time? I am going both nights. I cannot wait.
