REBEL HEART REWIND REASSESSMENT RANKING: Where would it rank in her catalogue?

Recommended Posts

1. Ray of Light

2. Bedtime Stories

3. Like A Prayer

4. Erotica

5. Rebel Heart

6. Confessions on a Dance Floor

7. Music

8. Madonna

9. American Life

10. True Blue

11. Like a Virgin

12. Hard Candy

13. MDNA

The top 3 are interchangeable depending on my mood. RH, as great as it is, doesn't feel quite as 'tight' or as 'evocative' as the top 4.

I think Rebel Heart album has fallen a position (though it is oh, so strong) and I had to raise Like a Virgin in my ranking. This is always so damn hard. I love every one of her albums. Top four on lock it seems.

1. Erotica
2. Madonna
3. Confessions
4. Ray of Light
5. Like a Prayer
6. Rebel Heart
7. True Blue
8. I'm Breathless
9. Music
10. Hard Candy
11. Like a Virgin
12. MDNA
13. Bedtime Stories
14. American Life

It has fallen considerably in my rankings. The Avicii sound would have really brought something new and fresh to the project. Kanye was a huge mistake (and I was looking forward to his contributions thanks to Beat GoesOn), Diplo proved has done much better work with other artists, etc. Too many good songs left off and too many ridiculous ones included.

With some editing could have made top five for me, though. Still listen to it regularly.

After much thought, I am convinced that Rebel Heart (Super Deluxe) is part of her essential album catalogue; which, if you must know, consists of Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, the Immaculate Collection, I'm Breathless, Erotica, Bedtime Stories, Something to Remember, Ray of Light, Music, American Life, Confessions on a Dancefloor, and the Confessions Tour.

I'm talking more about her back catalogue, something that she hadn't done before. I thought most people prefer the Rebel Heart demo, at least. I know most prefer the Wash album version, which I think is awful and completely ruins the song.

I've really liked some of Diplo's work from this past year with Justin Bieber, Sia, and Major Lazer itself, so I'm even more convinced she got screwed again for Rebel Heart. Except for maybe BIM, but the lyrics are terrible.

I dont think i've ever listened to a Madonna album as much as I have listened to Rebel Heart.

It's like the soundtrack to my life.

I was trying to figure out why I ranked it so highly a few months ago but now it is close to the bottom.

Like it wanted it to be an A+ but is only now a B- for me.

No change for RH in my rankings. It's not that I think it's bad. Just worse than most of her other albums.

Wow, I didn't think anyone was paying attention :laugh:

Sorry, I've never had this situation where there are not only so many different songs floating around which didn't make an album, but mulitiple versions of ones that did. I posted in the other thread that I could make a flawless album out of my favorites.

- Rebel Heart is amazing. Madonna is in a very tricky stage in her career given her age and the genre she is playing in. Rebel Heart does the impossible: it is catchy and modern while also mature (unlike MDNA). It succeeds on that level and that alone is a huge feat. It's given her back some artistry in the public's eye.

- To that guy who thinks the Avicci sound is fresh... get a grip. Aviccii is more dated than a vocoder. Thank god she switched the sound around last minute. Sure, the demo of Rebel Heart is radio friendly BUt also dull, dull, dull.

- Fans really don't like True Blue!! WTF... it's amazing (even if it is her most pop)
