The lack of proper promo and press for this era so far has been BAFFLING to say the least
Why come up with a brilliant concept like Madame X and 12 different personas and not let the General Public like... SEE THEM , she should of done a Netflix Madame X documentary, TV interviews in character as MX, more performances, lots more magazine cover shoots aside from Vogue UK etc
The whole thing is frustrating.
And where is her so called, supposedly excellent new PR team?
I still feel like I've only seen 1 persona in all the videos.... eye patch woman
The photo stills had so many other more interesting looks... I hope we see more of them soon!
So I-Tunes will cease to exist soon? So they are just going for the full streaming thing now instead of downloads?
Glad I still buy CDs and Vinyl.
So will my iTunes library still exist or do I need to back it all up now? (I mean the player, I know I have all the mp3s on my computer)
I use bandcamp for downloads but it all goes into my itunes library for listening...
Whats the next best mp3 player/storer besides iTunes library?
I'd prefer a "Something To Remember" Ballad hits part 2 over another Greatest Hits...
Didn't she also want to make an Orchestral versions hits album at one point?
It will take me the rest of the year to fully digest Madame X.
So if there really is another full album ready I hope she waits until 2020.

That’s the regular 13 track version.
15 track album, with stunning dark hair Art cover with monobrow and sewn lips.
I only buy physical products that I love and use, I would never buy something just to sit on a shelf or put in a box.
I will buy 1 vinyl version to play at home. It’s near impossible to scratch records, most faults and jumps happen in the manufacturing process. It may sound cliche but Vinyl sounds the best, especially through a good surround sound system.
And I’ll buy 1 CD for the bonus tracks to play at home and in my car.
Cassettes are utterly ridiculous.
The rainbow vinyl is horrendous...

Sorry if it's already posted
What the hell is that monstrosity?
I will stick with the clear vinyl.
Love the video, especially the Black and White segments.
She looks stunning like she just walked off the set of Desperately Seeking Susan in 1985.
One thing though... enough eye patch, let it go, it's not a good look... or maybe it's just overdone now.
I’m confused as far as the videos and performances go I feel like we’ve only got 1 persona.
The cha cha instructor wears the eye patch, so she was in Medellín video and performance.
but also for Like A Prayer and Future performance.
id like to see her ditch the eye patch for a while as it’s getting too samey.
wheres all the Fado influences she spoke of?
I buy Vinyl to play and enjoy them, I don't see the point in buying them to sit on a shelf.
Also shrink wrap can warp records over time and ruin them if you keep them sealed.
For me the Rebel Heart vinyl sounds better than my CD or digital versions.
Hmm, yeah JBHifi seem to have got a lot of limited coloured variants in the past so I think I'll wait unless I can buy the Blue vinyl from the UK.
Still haven't pre-ordered anything.
Dark Ballet is going to be amazing.
Love the new youtube version.
Madame X is a vocal concealer.
I love the whole performance but especially Dark Ballet and Future.
This is probably the only TV performance of Future that we are going to get so I'm happy that she did it.
The performance overall was Political and I love her for doing that, she took advantage of the Eurovision platform and shared her views, good on her for having the guts to do that!
It seems that the soundofvinyl US store doesn't ship to Australia ?
That seems strange and its not on the soundofvinyl UK or AU sites where I usually shop...Ugh!
I really want the Blue vinyl.
I was worried about Quavo and Future and it turns out to be the best track yet for me!
Love the Don't Tell Me reference but funny that it's not on one of the Mirwais tracks.
I haven't heard the new Maluma track yet, will wait until next week so I have something new to listen to!
FUTURE sounds very MASSIVE ATTACK 2019 to me, love it.
FUCK, I LOVE Future!
The best track yet for me.
FUTURE > I RISE > MEDELLIN > CRAVE
I’m so glad that none of the album covers have the eye patch...
Looking forward to hearing Future, less than 2 hours to go.

Anyone in Oz ordering the deluxe double CD from JB? $48 seems a bit steep...
JBHifi pricing can really be ridiculous sometimes.
It will work out cheaper to import it and order it online. (I order a lot of CDs from the UK as it works out cheaper)
Rough Trade UK have it for pre-order and they take off the UK VAT at checkout and do not add Aussie GST.
Are there any images of this "Rainbow" vinyl yet ?
MADAME X: official reviews are in: MADAME X is a hit with the critics!
in ARCHIVE - The MADAME X Forum
I'd really like this album to score between 75-85 on albumofthetyear.com
(website collects all the review scores from music publications and gives an average score)
60 is pretty low in my opinion and not a good review
