  1. After listening to the album myself I can accept at least some of the criticism from the worst reviews but the overall bad ratings I don't agree with. Yeah some of the lyrics are a bit questionable but Music had "I like to boogie woogie" and that's a fucking track. So to hang your hat on "lyrics" as your reason to give it a bad review, when everything *works* is just unacceptable. This album is god tier Madonna - LAP, Erotica, ROL, COADF now MX.

  2. First impressions - the album kicks ass. It definitely feels like a classic Madonna album. ie. something only she could produce/release. Still need a few more listens to really appreciate the songs but on only one listen this is how I rate:

    Medellín (with Maluma) - 9

    Dark Ballet - 10

    God Control - 10

    Future (ft. Quavo) - 8

    Batuka - 8

    Killers Who Are Partying - 8

    Crave (ft. Swae Lee) - 10

    Crazy - 8

    Come Alive - 7

    Extreme Occident - 8

    Faz Gostoso (ft. Anitta) - 10

    Bitch I’m Loca (ft. Maluma) - 10

    I Don’t Search I Find - 9

    Looking for Mercy - 10

    I Rise - 7

    Bold were the ones I wanted to listen to again first.

    Faz Gostoso and Bitch, I’m Loca are 🔥🔥🔥

    I don't like the male voice 😞 it feels more like a feat. Madonna song.

    Yeah I agree. I think he's a bit too prominent and dominates the song overall that she comes across as a feat rather than the main performer. It's not a bad track but the weakest for me so far. Her parts and the music itself are great but I can see why it was a bonus track.

    7/10

  4. Out of the 3 bonus tracks this one is my favorite!

    At first I was a bit taken aback because I did listen to the demo quite a lot and I actually really like it. After a couple listens though I think the official version is an improvement and definitely a lot more "layered". I love the flute and the kicked up bass. It does sound like the same vocals though which I think she could've have re-recorded or adjusted slightly on some parts. (A bit too high pitched but that's only a minor criticism.)

    10/10 for me. Would've happily had this on the album proper.

     

  5. 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.
