MADAME X: official reviews are in: MADAME X is a hit with the critics!


Recommended Posts

I have 2 things to say:

1. To the mods: we should have a Thread with all the reviews specially now that they will start to surface anytime soon.

2. Saying that AL is the worst Madonna album ever should be penalized with jail.

Having in mind AL is my least fav album of hers, this has me worried. RH and MDNA were generally met with praise so if no one is concerned with this seems strange. Hopefully he is mistaken and there are lots of jams and this review is an exception of the great ones to follow.

By the way, if anyone sees this reviewer in person, please tell him to return the journalism degree his parents no doubt overpayed for 🙂

1. How can you read that review? I can barely recognize words from that picture on the first post.

Just click at the picture and its original big size will open up in a new window.

Exactly.  Shitting on American Life is not a proper review of Madame X.

You can love or hate AL, but you can't tell it's her worst album, that's unreal at all!

What a poorly conceived review. Not great writing. Also, he praises it lots yet gives it a score of 3 out of 5? Am I missing something?

Not a glowing review, but also one where I think a score above 3/5 would match the description. 

I don’t think ‘some of the songs are weird’ is necessarily bad. I think it’s possible to have that reaction to some of the songs on Music and that’s one of my favourite M albums. Plus, the songs released so far in my opinion do get a lot better with repeat listens (esp Medellin and Future). 

We will see. Still loads of other reviews to come. Imo with the songs released so far it seems obvious that this will be much better than MDNA (and didn't RS give that 3.5?).

They never gave her 5/5? Ridicilous.

American Life is her worst album, just dreadful, boring, dull, uninspired songwriting, same monotonous guitar on EVERY song etc

 

Thank God for Confessions and Hard Candy, which is extremely underrated and probably the last Madonna album that the General Public is aware of, judging from the bizarro rollout so far, it certainly won't be Madame X

 

I was not happy when I found out she was working with Mirwais again, probably my least favorite M collaborator, even Music was a huge comedown compared to ROL, I just don't like his boring producing style at all

 

Not at all

 

Confessions volume 2 please Madonna?

God NO.

I've always taken 3-star ratings from RS to mean that fans of the artist will find lots to enjoy, but the album wont necessarily be a classic or a breakthrough hit album.

As a fan of Madonna, all I care about is that I will enjoy it... and it sounds like I will.

Anyway... what happened to the June 4th embargo? 

If it's being ignored we should see more magazine reviews soon as their June publications are issued

Ah This explains everything, Gaga got her fan to write the new Madonna album review but hey RS gave her worst album HC the highest score , says it all really . Next real review please

i think he is proud that the album is bizarrely weird. but maybe he rated it a 3/5 cause he needed time to digest it.

well im not saying to dismiss it cuz he critiqued M in a gaga review, and you have to expect that this album will probably get very different reviews if it's very weird and experimental.. let's just keep this in mind when reading the review

but i care less how they rate her albums. i read the reviews to get a glimpse of what she has in store for me. and whenever i read a negative reaction to her songs i automatically decide i'd like it. that is how my brain is wired, fortunately for me.

this is how he reviewed the album.

weird,

taking risks,

admirably bizarre,  

for fans of her loca edge,

mysterious new accent in some, and plays down the accent and gets lost in emotion in another track

a vocodor singing the nut cracker, 

you have to endure her pondering political oppression before reaching her strongest songs,

can trigger that 'worried about madonna' feeling,

proud that she is still being willing to act up like this,

never lets us down in a very different way,

time will tell if mx will have staying power,

if you love madonna for her shamelessness - bitch she's loca. 

I LOVE MADAME X BECAUSE OF ALL THE ABOVE REASONS.

Worried about what? Her aging voice which needs vocoder? Or the narrative that "she doesnt take care of her voice anymore"
