Is the El Pais review good? 

Yes. It's EXCELLENT. Very well written and funny. They say that things shouldn't work but end up working beautifully. That her last two albums were predicting a painful ending for her career and this changes it all. That Killers is her best song in 25 years. 

It surprised me though that the reviewer said there are Bulgarian choirs in God Control? Aren't those people from a kids choir?

Funny how just weeks ago media said her career ended with Eurovision and now this?😆

And how these reviewers get paid when they dont check the facts?

https://www.showbiz411.com/2019/06/14/madonnas-madame-x-album-number-1-on-itunes-thanks-to-ticket-bundling-for-now-until-fans-try-to-figure-it-out

 

Madonna’s “Madame X” is number 1 on iTunes and on Amazon’s digital music chart thanks to ticket bundling. Every fan who bought a ticket to Madonna’s live show this fall automatically got a download of “Madame X.” The RIAA counts these downloads as sales. Madonna’s pulled this trick before to get a number 1 chart debut for a new recording. Then in the second week, sales drop 80% or more.

This time things may get trickier. “Madame X” is a really bad album, worse than usual in Madonna’s post-career releases. There are no dance songs on “Madame X,” but there’s a lot of political mumbo jumbo. Madonna, like Michael Jackson as he got older, thinks she can save the world. So she sings Hallmark politics about the left and the right, out to please everyone and achieving nothing.

From the sound of “Madame X,” Madonna actually has no ideas. At least when she sang about sex, she was defiant. That always came through. But back then Madonna didn’t have six children- four under the age of 13– who would sing along with her records. Now that  she does, it’s a different game. Platitudes are now her business. They’re not even witty, there’s no wordplay.

But then it’s not just that the songs have no coherence lyrically. There’s also just a mess. Many of them are interrupted by strange digressions. “The Nutcracker Suite” pops up in one of them.The songs stop and start. On Wikipedia, her PR says she tried to make a record like “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Whaaaat? The problem, of course, is that unlike Freddie Mercury, Madonna is not a composer. She doesn’t write music. It’s unclear if she writes lyrics, really.

Oh for the days when Madge just worked with real songwriters. They did the heavy lifting, and she presented it in her own form. That’s how we got “Like a Prayer” and “Like a Virgin” and “Vogue.” But she can’t do that now. She can’t expose herself to a collaboration. So she sticks to Mirwais, who’s been there for her during the post-hit period, quietly trying to fashion a whole album out of thin air. I guess you could say they’ve done it again.

Someone clearly hates her! What a stupid article.

He's a vile "person," indeed. talks out of his arse and has no clue about anything. Among many errs- ticket bundles have nothing to do with iTunes or Amazon rankings, for one. And no dance songs on the album? Uh, OK lol

He buries the lead...which is that the album is fire...with endless dismissal of her music since Confessions and the Madame X alter ego...and for the record...she used one with DITA and VERONICA ELECTRONICA...so she didn't copy Yonce on Sasha Fierce (as if). 

The reviews are exhausting.

The berating tone of some of those reviews is getting on my nerves more and more. It's always the tiresome "Madonna should remember she is Madonna". It is such a shallow criticism. These people simply don't realize that this is the Madonna of now and not the Madonna of the past. If they have a problem with that, then it is their problem, not hers. They want a Madonna that fits their expectations the most. Something that is obviously not on Madonnas list of priorities. meet other peoples expectations. Never has, never will. Maybe after 35 years those critics should come to terms with the fact that Madonna is above all an artist with her own vision, not just a product. She will not bow down to market needs and other peoples expectations of what THEY want from her. They won't get it. The real power of an artist in todays World to über-selfish customers is if you still continue to create YOUR art or if you surrender and simply provide want costumers want you to provide which basically means the death of an artist. More power to Madonna for rejecting being the Madonna THEY want. And what's the alternative? Taylor Swift and Katy Perry recently became Taylor Swift and Katy Perry again. I dare to say this regressive move is worse than anything Madonna has ever done in her career and it perfectly illustrates that there is no need for a critic to tell Madonna to remember she is Mdonnna. She is very much aware of who she is.

I guess Pitchfork are taking their sweet time simply because their reviewer is so in awe of Madame X they need time to write down the countless reasons why they love the album?

I keep checking for their review. For whatever reason I'm hopping for a good one but I just know it will be somewhere between 2.8 and 4 lol
