Indeed! Still can't believe some reviews stated that LFM is the weakest..

It was actually only a couple of reviews that did not love it in hindsight.  Multiple reviews list it as a highlight which it is!

HUGE fan. One of those WTF situations where one of the gems is a bonus track.

Yes. This is Beautiful Killer territory. She leaves the best as bonuses. lol

Listened to this for the first time and as others have said, the vocals are very impressive! I'm overwhelmed with how epic this song is! It's very powerful!

People always wanted Madonna to do a torch song. Here it is. 

I hope she performs it on her coming tour. 

I think she will, to be honest. As far as ballads go it’s heavy duty. Imagine hearing this song being performed in the intimate setting of a theatre.

WOW!!  Where did this song come from- I was not expecting this at all!  What a beauty!  Her vocals and delivery are absolutely stunning throughout but my favorites are the pre-chorus "Somebody teach me how to love" and the way she sings  "I'm looking for love" in the chorus is absolutely heavenly (another Karen Carpenter moment @Jazzy Jan) .  How was this not on the standard edition along with EO??  For me, it's an essential part of this album and the Madame X journey.  It makes me sad that someone might only listen to the standard version and never hear this gem.  Just brilliant and gorgeous!  I think it may be my favorite at the moment 🥰

I guess they thought the album had too many ballads and went for Bitch I'm Loca

How could this song be considered weak in several reviews baffles me. It's one of the strongest! 

They probably don’t even listen to the whole album.  That’s nuts.  This song is incredible. Top notch and a highlight on the album.

Why again is this a bonus song?  Ridiculous.  It is my favorite Madame X song.  I bought every version but still.

This is the most surprising song for me. I was expecting a *bonus material* from this one and then BAM!

One of the most beatiful and emotional Madonna songs on her career and you guys know that means a lot!

Damn, Madame X :dramatic:
