  1. Can Madonna not work with DJ's next time though? I mean what happened to the days where she hooked up with one of two musicians to make music?

    Hasn't it been since Confessions that one of her records wasn't primarily produced by a DJ? I really want her to get away from DJ's on this next record.

    Wasn't Stuart Price a DJ and are Timbaland/Danja/Timberlake or The Neptunes DJs? What about Kanye West or Billboard?

  2. Oh I know, it was not possible to make the poll like that, just wanted to point it out. Iconic has 5 producers credited though so we can't guess whose involvement was the most important. I don't think Avicii is actually the main producer on those songs, he's just the big name unlike Magnus Lidehall or Carl Falk, it's not like Messiah sounds like your typical Avicii song.

  3. ^S&ST ended in September 2009, same month when Celebration came out. They waited 6 months with the DVD release even though the broadcast had already happened before, it was most likely a contractual thing. Plus they might have known already Madonna would not release anything new for 2 years!

  4. Love it! I think it has a great flow, not entirely chronological but not completely random! I don't miss the ballads as it would have been way too slow, the only changes I would have made are replacing What It Feels Like For A Girl with American Pie since the former was not a proper hit and the album version wasn't even used in the video and maybe the Don't Cry For Me Argentina remix to have even less slow moments but that's all.

    The original tracklist sucked, putting all the faster songs in the first half and make the second half into Something To Remember part two...


  5. There's nothing urban in that campfire guitar-like album version, Illuminati has nothing to do with Avicii as it's a Toby Gad/MoZella track and like I said Wash All Over Me still sounds like one of the demos done by Avicii & co.

    Plus Messiah & HeartBreakCity also remain mainly unchanged from the demos and Avicii is credited for both alongside nearly a dozen of people...

  6. But Avicii's tracks did not become urban at all. Isn't the album version of Rebel Heart almost identical to one of the demos? There was also a piano version of Wash All Over Me that sounds similar to Kanye West/Mike Dean version. DJ Dahi & Blood Diamonds barely changed Devil Pray, mostly that post-chorus bit with weird vocals. It's not like any of the album versions sound completely different to what Avicii did!

    Plus Avicii gets a lot of credit from the fans while the tracks related to him were co-written and co-produced by a slew of other people like Carl Falk so let's not act like he was a Shep Pettibone to her who then got "betrayed" by reworked demos.

  7. Every tour she's ever done -- with the sole exception of RIT -- has been released for home video, regardless of whether it was broadcast on TV or the internet.

    By all accounts, the MDNA release was a hit for Interscope. There's absolutely no reason to think RHT won't get a release as well.

    Indeed, if there is a broadcast then it's certain to be released. So it's more important to hear news about a broadcast deal first...

    But was it really a hit for Interscope? I thought it didn't sell much and in the US they didn't even sell the live album separately. 3 years later RHT is likely to sell a lot less.

  8. Yes I agree, "Debut" is as fresh as ever. And lest we forget, it was producer Nellee Hooper largely behind "'Debut" that got Madonna working with him. His beats sound as fresh on "Debut" as they do on "Bedtime Story".

    Would love "Erotica" to be there but ROL is always gonna be on these kind of lists.

    Violently Happy sounds like Bedtime Story.

    This list is low on female artists and I doubt that the people who compiled it ever listened to Erotica or Bedtime Stories, critics kinda jumped on the "ROL bandwagon", at that point it was cool to like her. She was no longer outrageously controversial, wasn't "too teen pop" or "too adult contemporary" anymore plus all the good press due to Evita and motherhood created a "let's give kudos to her now" moment.
