Crying. Just heard the full album...
She topped herself again, I love here so much and I’m so proud of her for everything she put in this record. You can feel her pain, her joy, her playfullness throughout and IT’S AMAZING.
This cd is so full of raw emotion... I’m floored.
It’s so crazy that after such a brilliant career she still have this will to experiment and has so much to share musically, lyrically and aesthetically. We are so blessed to have her...
Upon first listen faves are:
KILLERS WHO ARE PARTYING - was expecting to cringe real hard judging by the reviews but I actually cried my eyes out. This music style is to die for and suits her really well. The way she sings those lyrics makes up for their simplicity. This song touches me deeply.
GOD CONTROL... well, you guys said it all, it’s INSANE. Have to listen to it again to process all that disco-choir-crazy galore.
COME ALIVE not a fan of Body Shop so I was skeptical reading the comparisons. But omg I LOVE it. The rythms, instrumentation, choir... fuck yeah
BATUKA a bit long maybe but the fusion of genres is so well done, it’s brilliant!!!! Sounds like nothing else ever done
IDSIF just all I love from Madonna summed up in one song. Not particularly innovative but what a pleaser ! Amazing lyrics and spoken words. Her sugar is so very raw in this.
Still love FUTURE to death as well
I love love LOVE the theme of the album. All this allusions to searching, finding, rising above, while going though a wide spectrum of genres, melodies, collaboration. At the end it’s not what you’re looking for or what you find that matters but the journey. And god this album reflects that to perfection.
sorry for the long post but I’m so happy that M is back with such FIERCE and profound music.
Long live the queen
