      I look much better than Homer :lol:

  4. Thank you, this definitely breaks it down into laymens terms on how a song is crafted these days. I've never doubted Madonna's lyrical input when she's inspired (and clearly she was in RH, whereas not so much in Revolver). So it sounds like while she might have had an additional songwriter or two in writing the lyrics (since she doesn't compose music) in most of the songs, it seems each track went through a lot of production changes which I imagine affects the musical composition -- ultimately leading to many songwriting credits.
  5. The multiple songwriters is mind boggling. Does it really take 9 producers to pen the lyrics? Or did some of the producers write the music and that counts as a songwriting credit? No joke, I'm seriously asking this. It used to sound much simpler then to produce and write a pop song.
  6. What Kurt said. RH, even with more flaws, is sincerely more confessional than Confessions.
  7. Did she? Had no idea, haven't paid attention to the show in years. That's a shame.
  8. Robin looks like she hasn't missed a few meals now. Shame she lost her braids though, she looked very pretty with them.
  9. Forget about Chris, Sandra and Gags. I wonder if he's going to go there about the plastic surgery, and will Madonna rise to the challenge? Should be an interesting interview.
  10. I still say this is the little sister to Candy Perfume Girl, and I mean that in a GOOD way. Definitely in my Top 5.
  11. I agree. It's mainstream enough without sounding too much like what the other pop tarts are putting out there, and the lyrics suggest more of an anthemic trademark Madonna song (like LAP, ROL, Secret, etc). It's a shame she missed the ball on this one, but I hope this song gets to see some light of day either on tour or as a single (even if it flopped). Plus the verses on the latter half of the song are quite a standout.
  12. This song is LIFE! But these lyrics in conjunction with that amazing vocal delivery are to die for. Honestly if you took away the vocal effects on the song, her vocals probably still sound as flawless as her ROL/Music days (same goes for Love Spent).
  13. Definitely camp in the end, which kind of kills the momentum. I mean could she sound anymore like an elderly drag queen on last part: "If you're gonna act like a bitch, then you're gonna die like a bitch"? For that I give it a 7.5/10. Chop off the last minute or so and then you have a 10/10 moment.
  14. Agreed. It's a brilliant track. Does anyone else think this is the Candy Perfume Girl of this album? For a rather simple track it's so beautifully polished and cooler than the title makes it out to be. I think if the vocal effects were taken off her, she would still own it vocally.
  15. Thanks for the info! That was a good read on popular misconceptions of Autotune. I haven't heard the record other than the few clips but she sounds passionate again, which is great. If Madonna properly rehearses her vocals like she does her dancing this tour then she won't struggle IMO. I think what was so glaringly obvious about the S&S tour was that she had fantastic stamina but she sounded like she missed alot of her vocal lessons in preparation. There's no way she should have sounded that God-awful on Human Nature, perhaps flat at worst like during the Drowned World Tour.
  16. Sigh...still waiting like a celibate priest succumbing to nightly wet dreams. It's gonna be a long 6 days.
  17. Two really awesome videos in a row from the same album campaign, is this 2001 again? Will be recreating the crouching wall yoga moves and nu-Vogue at the gym tomorrow.
  18. I agree, she totally underestimated the audience, which in turn, might kill off real interest by casual listeners. That's what gives her big hits (along with payola from the record company). In spite of misfires of GMAYL and GGW, I'm glad the album sounds like it's full of killer stuff. It'd be nice if it can reach a broader audience beyond the fanbase.
  19. Seriously! I truly think she has lost her ear/taste for what would give her a great critical reception. But I'm glad she still has enough sense to make some great music, if the last several clips are indicative.
  20. Didn't need to see that, Marge. But thanks.
  21. I think most Madonna fans are realistic at the fact that at 53, Madonna won't have much luck at radio from this point on. So I'd rather she release quality substantial work worthy of her catalogue regardless of chart success. If radio picks it up, great, but those days are pretty much behind her. What has she got to lose anyway by releasing non-radio stuff?
  22. Quoted for truth! I just don't get it, unless she and Interscope want an easy radio hit that badly. That said the tidbits of the album sound very promising in spite of those singles.
  23. I've visited other Madonna forums, the response to GGW has been pretty negative, this coming from her own fans. You'd have to be pretty naive to think that William Orbit, who is active on his Twitter account, hasn't been paying attention to the internet reactions to both singles. Billboard and Rolling Stone slated GMAYL, her first single. Madonna seems pretty out to lunch which the general response so of course William Orbit will say "the tracks aren't representative of the album as a whole". Clearly he is listening! Then why release them and turn off even the casual listener who hasn't heard new Madonna material in 4 years? None of Madonna's fans want her to flop at all. I'm still holding out hope for the deluxe edition that they'll be some great stuff, Masterpiece sounds wonderful. But MDNA isn't going over as well as it should be based on the released music so far.
