Yeah I don't wanna be too hard on Loca. It's fun. It's like the Spanish Lesson of the album. Obviously a playful little moment. And her and Maluma have chemistry like you wouldn't believe 

 

Honestly thats the thing about Madame X... even the weaker songs are still really great. UGH I AM IN LUV

Slant review mentions that Killers lyrics could be in part inspired by the poem First They Came.  Madame X is a teacher indeed.  

 

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

according to allaboutmadonna

uncut gave 5/10 WTF? 

sadly, Metacritic gonna count this shit.

Uncut has given a very lazy review. is this a real album review? what trend is she chasing with this album? if she is, is it a fault? everybody in the mainstream music industry follows trend.

Shit. Its not a review basically. It sounds like they didn't listen to the whole album (or were skipping it to find fault) and concentrated on the 2 tracks they disliked. Out of 15...

Fuck that Uncut review is going to drag the albums overall rating down... 

That’s only 2.5 stars... i think that’s the worst review so far!?

i just searched other reviews from uncut. it seems like they have given above 7 to all the reviews. but Madonna 5? they better say that they hate her.

Reviews like the Uncut one just serve to remind us that no matter what she releases she’ll always have her haters who’ll dismiss her no matter what. Having a look at their website / reviews they seem more wanky and pretentious than Pitchfork. I didn’t think that was possible. Fuck ‘em.

This „review“ is a fucking mess! It’s really frustrating that these fuckers don’t even offer any valid arguments or explanations and just drag her metascore down.

It's the same thing as rebel heart, she could have put a well reviewed album together, but when you throw things on there that everyone hates like killers, they have to take points off

That's just an exercise in futility...and the anti-thesis to everything Madonna is. To try to make something that will somehow please the infiniteness of subjective opinion is just...ridiculous. I mean, either way they'll give her shit - "well, she played it too safe this time around" to "that's it? for what she gave, she certainly could have done more" , etc. etc. 

Not to mention the fact that she doesn't put out albums every couple of years quite like she used to. Now we wait almost double, so I'd much rather have as much music to enjoy as a fan in the time between...since it's not like critics nor the charts are going to give it up to her anytime soon.

Does anyone in Germany have access to Die Zeit? There is a new review but I can't open it...at least according to the first lines the review seems to be well written...

There should be an opportunity where people can rate a review, if the review was helpfull in any way. Some of these "reviews" are just lazy, phoned in, stereotypical, stupid write-up's. They should not have any influence on any metacritic scores.

Which brings me back to the point that reviews shouldn't matter as a whole, because it's ALL SUBJECTIVE! Music is an objective experience! Listen to the music and make up your own damn mind! Why does everyone in the world always care so much what the rest thinks?!?

hasn't uncut been shady about madonna before? anyway, let's hope it doesn't hold a lot of weight. unfortunately there'll always be reviewers who want to review a madonna album just to drag her. im sure even an undeniable masterpiece like ROL could've gotten one or two troll scores. the ones that irritate me are the 60 scores. why not at least go for a 70 since they basically say it's a great/creative album?
