Stereogum doesn't count

The LA Times obviously count (and feels like a 40, at most………… terrible and unfair review)

Variety counts for albums! At least according to Metacritic lol

One of the best reviews so far. The writer really gets the point and he reviews the music  without talking about  how appropriate she is now or not. Love the little comparison to David Bowie in terms of the experimental side of the album.

One thing is certain Madonna is back!

She is the only person on earth that can generate this

level of hypocrisy..sexism...ageism...contradictory statements all in the same paragraph.

How in the world is doing Fado and Samba music "chasing trends"? I've never heard Ariana Grande or Dua Lipa making that kind of music. Fuck Uncut!

Good review maybe the Arthur Fogel calling the rag out with Fuck you/fuck off knocked some sense in them. Short lived but in ink!

They probably had an idea of what kind of review they were going to write before they even heard the album.

Pitchfork and Uncut are jokes. Bunch of white dudes who hate powerful women and get half-mast boners for Taylor Swift (who incidentally makes some of the worst music known to man)

Are they good reviews? or should her score drop even more?

I have no way of knowing, but I think it’s a safe bet that Mojo, All Music, Attitude, and PopMatters will be good.  If she can get one great one out of NYT, Chicago Tribune, and Boston Globe and not get overly bad from Consequence and AV Club then she should maintain mid to high seventies score.  Pitchfork will probably be a not great score unless they surprise us.

And for those who care about reviews not counted for Meta, she is likely to get positive from People and USA Weekly.

Is not Madonna sponsoring something from Pitchfork? They have a moral obligation to give a very good rating to her.

I very much hope that Madame X is between 75 and 80

That LA Times review really shouldn't count! Making a review of two albums comparing them? What even? Madame X should have its own review. Two completely different artists, with two differently styles.

Uncut have Bruce Springsteen album as their header on twitter, so of course they would score Madonna low. Payola wouldn't be too surprising in this case.

How is that average 73, when the average of the numbers is actually a bit lower than that? Unless some are weighted differently.

You answered it. Some are weighted differently. Which is good.
