I posted a review in that Metracritic page. I love the album so much that I only had to explain how much I like it. I think we all should post our review there. It 's so great that this album is being enjoyed by so many fans! 

I posted one on Amazon, lol. I felt very early 2000s. But like you say, it was easy because the album is that good.

This is really cool. Is it common for new albums to get a good user score and then decline, or can we expect this to hold steady?

Same, pitchfork can forgo writing a review. I don't need their back handed compliments or outright hostility. Or anything in between.

If pitchfork won't review, is she officially irrelevant 😆

Please tell me more about this Pitchfork outlet. I know they exist, that they review music and that people on this forum have a relationship with Pf that ranges from anger to fear. I have never read Pitchfork, why are they so important? Are they a powerful voice in music journalism? Please educate me.

The easiest way to describe Pitchfork is that it's a pretentious, self-serving hipster music blog that somehow caught on and became one of the more prestigious outlets for album reviews. They've become important enough to launch careers. The ego of that website and the people on it is something to behold. They get off on being hailed as the most discerning eyes in music.

Most intelligent people see right through them.

Ok, thanks. But it must be an american thing? I live in Sweden and I don't know anyone reading them.

Yes, definitely American. I’m sure Europe has an equivalent.

Not really. The British magazines, NME, Q, Mojo, Uncut etc. used to be leaders in providing music journalism to Europe. But today cultural media in Europe is more connected to each country. And I don't think (speculating of course) that the younger generations reads that much music reviews to be honest. It used to be the way to discover new music.

Idolator 4.5/5

Album review - Madonna's Madame X pushes the boundaries of Pop!

https://www.idolator.com/7803119/album-review-madonna-madame-x?view-all&chrome=1

In many ways, Madame X is Madonna’s most personal album to date. She’s speaking her truth, while revealing more of herself than ever. It might not be the collection of bangers you want, but it’s what we, as a society, need. The fact that she can stoke the flames of rebellion in a way that is original, vulnerable and inclusive (in the truest sense of the word) is a pop miracle. But, then again, Madonna has been rewriting the rule book since 1982. And she isn’t going to stop any time soon.

Score: 4.5/5

side note: typo bc the author states Rebel Heart opened w/ Looking for Love but otherwise good article, great score!

Amazing! It's so refreshing to read words like these! When they do get her, it really shows and it makes all the difference! :clap:

i would add that the site was originally focused solely on indie-rock and was run by straight hipster guys. and i've never thought they were very good writers. the site historically looked down on pop music, with a few exceptions (you had to be "indie" or not be embraced by the mainstream - think robyn, lykke li, charli xcx). madonna was basically ignored for the first 10 years of the site's existence. they published "best of the 80s" and "best of the 90s" lists and aside from "like a virgin" they pretended she didn't exist. they started covering more pop around the time of hard candy, which of course was when it became cool to just shit on everything she did and they stepped up. since then they've been bought by conde nast (huge publisher in america) so they've started covering more mainstream stuff. so not covering madame x would be weird. they could surprise us. a 7/10 would be a big deal, but it wouldn't help her metacritic score.

 Yeah. Whatever they wanna do is whatever. I know what they think about her already. A nasty album review at this point would just be underscoring what I already know- bunch of uptight poorly endowed white men who don’t know what to make of her. Big deal. They’re everywhere

it's also poorly researched because bruce recently did a long residency on broadway (something madonna should do!) and madonna is doing residency-style shows in various cities this fall. not sure why these residencies need to happen in vegas only. other cities allow people who can't travel to see them.
