    For anyone who hasn't seen inside the limited edition Blue cassette release. I opened a copy to actually play it. No need to worry guys the cassette is actually printed on, you just can't see it when it's sealed 🙏🏻😊💙

    This will probably be the last Madame X album thread 🤙, it's been a long journey with hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pages, drama, excitement and shenanigans, but the album is finally here. Beginning with New Zealand, the album is available on all platforms on June 14 at 00:00 hours. If you ask for illegal links you will get a warning / banned. I also don't wanna see any talk about insiders or useless back and forths about insiders. Nobody cares. Enjoy the album.

    I was able to fix Batuka. Here is a before and after clip of how I fixed the outro. It is a short clip of the end of the track to demonstrate the correction. The clip starts right near the part where the glitch is (at about :3 seconds in). The fixed outro starts at :18 seconds. [Hidden Content]

    It was Great! She was chatting for an hour taking questions from the audience. She sang a few lines of miles away acapella to a guy on the balcony and talked about the tour; Madame X tour Definitely NOT acoustic or unplugged, she said she ”will be very much plugged!” And sounded disgusted at being unplugged. It’s not a staged musical It will be a full Madonna show in an intimate setting with chat Give it 2 me not in the set list (in reply to a girl who wanted info and kept saying Give it to me!) Some guy shouted “Get your tits out” “I already have!” She quipped The Bad Girl Book is part inspiration She gave a guy Butterfly dance lessons, signed a guys tattoos, inspected some Madame X tattoos, and was in really great form. I think it was about an hour, and I will never forget it. Truly one off, and even though I was literally in the back row!

    @LindebergBoythis is not a forum dedicated to you. Everyone please just stop turning the attention to these 'insiders'. Its annoying to everyone else. Focus on M and the album. Thats what this forum is for.

    Thank you. My mom has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, and I feel so selfish that it's hitting me so hard. Swirling around in a mess of confusion, depression etc. Just being able to hear Madam X and feel the music in me is giving me some strength to be what my mom needs right now.

    Madame X is perfect, and y’all just have o accept it. Like she once said “This is who I am You can like it or not You can love me Or leave me 'Cause I'm never gonna stop” And let’s not forget, the Anitta's song, that some of you were criticising the entire year is already one of the most played songs of her new album, and it’s a gem!

    I waited till midnight to finally listen to the album.......it was worth the wait! Every song takes so many different directions, it transpires inspiration, dedication, work... everything that was missing in her last three albums (although I still love Rebel Heart but the leaks ruined the whole project). I was listening and thinking wow wow wow so many great moments. It is really a "bizarre world" album with different sounds, languages etc but she manages to make it work as a whole album and nothing really sounds out of place. I love when she is being political, I missed this so much! The three bonus tracks are indeed bonus tracks material but still very well done and enjoyable. I am listening Madame X non stop now and waiting for my copy to arrive... The Queen is back!

    I feel in the minority that I Rise is the perfect closer for the album. Looking for Mercy then I Rise works so well. There are some tough themes throughout the album and hearing “managed to survive”, “yes we can we can get it together, we’ll rise up we can get it together” leaves the album with some hope - not overly optimistic but holding onto “a little bit of magic”

    All the songs on Madame X have, officially for me personally, joined Madonna's discography. To explain this; I am becoming familiar with them. A powerful listen for me tonight. The album as a whole reflects a calm quiet strength that I have not heard from Madonna in a long time but what is most wonderful is that all of Madonna's more wonderful personality traits are balanced with that strength.

    I'm so proud of this album, so fucking proud. And I'm sure that if this one had been the 2008 Madonna release, the Confessions on a dancefloor follow up, many of this experts and social pundits would have been celebrating her work as the most mature, bold and experimental of her career. When she started to tell she was victim of ageism a few years back (about her songs not being played on radios or critics attacking her for some looks and choreo ideas) I was like "Yes, part of it is true, they're too harsh, it's too much, but, at the same time, let's not deny you're not giving the same quality you used to and you're getting a little too repetitive, both in terms of creativity and music (personal opinion of course)". This is a complete different case, this is just refusing to appreciate the courage and the freshness of a project that all at once appears in the pop scenario with such a different, outspoken and crystal personality. Some choices can be criticizable but saying that this record is the work of a finished artist, who's got nothing left to say or can't find a proper way to say it, to keep in touch with her audience, is just brutally false, MALA FIDE!! So let's full the theatreS for her shows, let's listen to her music and celebrate her wonderful work on and offline, let's make her feel how proud and satisfied we are this time and take the mean reviewers for what they are ...

    How is this direspectful?? Mass shootings survivors and the relatives of the victims should THANK her for openly addressing this topic! It's like when she was accused of being disrespectful to the soldier in the Iraq war with the American Life video. For presenting things AS THEY ARE! She is not making fun of anybody, she is taking a stance and sending a message like the fearless icon she is.

    I’ve listened to Madame x non stop all weekend and now and I’ve decided it is the best album of her career so far. It has everything I love in a Madonna record. Sheer goosebumps with looking for mercy, euphoria with ciao Bella, 90’s style dance music with I don’t search I find, beautiful simplicity with killers who are partying, experimental genius with god control, tongue in cheek cheekiness with bitch I’m Loca and lush melodies with crave and Medellín. Everything is so different and original yet it all fits together seamlessly as one really clever piece of work. I am in awe once again and so so proud. Love it.

    The 'Madame X' Fan Reviews Thread

    I haven't been this compelled to listen to a new Madonna album all the way through over and over and over again in YEARS. Repeated listens are so rewarding because these songs have actual substance and depth to them that most of her material hasn't had since 2005. And the production on this album is some of the best of any Madonna album EVER, in my opinion. So, without further ado... 01. Medellín (5/5) - The beginning. Madame X's mission statement. "Let's take a trip," indeed! This song is pure magic and I haven't tired of it in spite of listening to it countless times by this point. Maluma's contribution is essential, in my opinion. He actually elevates the song - a fact that some fans inexplicably can't seem to understand or appreciate. And GOD BLESS MIRWAIS. 02. Dark Ballet (5/5) - Completely unlike anything Madonna has ever done before. I absolutely love when she goes into full-on bonkers mode and really lets her innate creativity and avant-garde tendencies let loose. 03. God Control (5/5) - A MASTERPIECE. I can't say enough about this song. It's definitely the biggest surprise on the album in terms of sheer balls-to-the-wall madness. Protest at the disco! Bloodbath on the dance floor! 04. Future (3.5/5) - I appreciate this song much more in the context of the entire album. It definitely feels essential to the experience. I just don't absolutely love it as a song on its own terms. I love various elements of it (the effect on her vocals, THOSE HORNS ), but this one is just a solid "like" for me. 05. Batuka (4/5) - This song definitely takes several listens to fully appreciate. Initially I thought it was too long without much variation throughout, but WOAH does this song ever shape-shift. By far one of the best moments on the whole album is how this song just disintegrates into chaos followed by those haunting, distorted strings at the very end. 06. Killers Who Are Partying (4/5) - I'd be lying to myself if I said that I still don't have problems with some of the lyrics, because I do, but the rest of this song is just so perfect that I have to forgive them to a degree. This is basically exactly what I was hoping for when we were under the impression we were getting a Mirwais-led, fado-inspired album. The melody just lodges inside your brain and gets under your skin and the whole effect is gorgeously melancholy. And she HUMS! It’s been AGES! 07. Crave (5/5) - That this song wasn't a complete smash hit will always be one of the greatest Madonna mysteries to me. The sad fact is that had she been 30 years younger it would have been. It's just a perfect pop song. And Swae's contribution here is probably the most successful of all the features on the album because he's not there just to be there. His voice works on the song almost as an additional instrument. He adds texture. 08. Crazy (4/5) - Another absolutely strong pop song. I love the opening accordion and her vocals here are arguably the best on the whole album. She's full-on belting "My God, look at me now!" and it practically brings a tear to my eye. 09. Come Alive (5/5) - The hands-down best song on the whole album for me. Nobody does euphoric pop quite like Madonna. "They say be all I can be, and all I want is peace peace peace peace peace peace." FUCKING TRANSCENDENT. I simply DO NOT understand fans who don't like this song. 10. Faz Gostoso (5/5) - WHAT A SURPRISE, Y'ALL. I never in a million years when the tracklist was announced would have thought that his would be in my top 5 favorite songs on the album. I'm so lukewarm on Blaya's original, but Madonna and Anitta improved this song in just about every way possible. There's an almost sinister undertone to the song that juxtaposes BEAUTIFULLY with the joyous lyrics and performance. And that carnaval-esque breakdown is simply breathtaking. 11. Bitch I'm Loca (3/5) - I can appreciate this song on the album as sort of a palate-cleansing interlude before the climactic finish. I'm relieved that it's nowhere near as cringe-inducing as I imagined it would be. I don't find myself scrambling for the skip button when I get to it. The fact that Madonna and Maluma have genuine chemistry is what makes this song work. 12. I Don't Search I Find (5/5) - It's more of a mood piece than an actual song, but I LOVE IT. Madame X is such a fucking LADY. And, let's be real, how the hell did Shep Pettibone not produce this? It's uncanny! 13. I Rise (5/5) - I'm glad I didn't overplay this song when it was first released because it hit me pretty hard now as the album closer. I love how it builds and builds and then her voice warps into this apocalyptic robot chant. It's devastating. I must say that the standard edition is my go-to. I love the way the album flows here and it goes by so quickly! "Extreme Occident" and "Looking for Mercy," at least in terms of where they're placed in the deluxe edition's track order, just grind the momentum of the album down to a near halt. That being said... 14. Extreme Occident (3/5) - I feel like there are some good ideas here and it's baffling, I know, to have this rated so low. This is a song that I SHOULD love on paper, but it just falls kind of flat for me next to everything that surrounds it. 15. Looking for Mercy (3/5) - Grandiose, majestic, dramatic - again a song that I SHOULD be head over heels in love with. I don't know why I can't connect with it. And I definitely think it's a song on the album that needed to be edited somewhat. The song reaches a point where I feel it should naturally end and be pretty great, but NOPE. We still have an entire minute left of "Looking for looking for looking for mercy." By the end I'm just exhausted. And, lastly... 16. Funana (2/5) - NOPE. Bad. Not the worst ever, but pretty bad. Musically I think it's sweet, but those lyrics and her vocals just destroy it for me. 17. Back That Up To The Beat (4/5) - SO MUCH BETTER than the demo and I don't care if it's sacrilegious to say so! That flute sample is ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. I don't know that I would want it anywhere on the album proper, but I love it as an epilogue. 18. Ciao Bella (5/5) - Now THIS is a song that I wish had made the album proper. It's so gorgeous. A touch of GRACE. Her vocals in the spoken word parts are almost unrecognizable. Madame X is an enigma. Lately I have the entire standard edition plus "Back That Up" and "Ciao Bella" at the end as a postscript and I just love the idea of "Ciao Bella" sort of closing out the entire Madame X experience. Final Album Score: 90% UNQUESTIONABLY her best album since Confessions on a Dance Floor. End of discussion. I look forward to seeing how time and experience effect my opinion of this album, but I honestly can't get enough of it right now. I imagine it will settle comfortably somewhere in the middle of my ranking of all of her albums.

    I remember becoming a member of this wonderful forum almost a year ago. There was so much speculation and anticipation. We were all ready for an album release in 2018 and we were so disappointed we had to wait until the next year. Then finally 2019 came, but to our dismay M14 was postponed again. We had to get through the winter without any new music from Madonna and had to wait until spring, perhaps even summer. Some of us even believed the new album would never see the light of day. But here we are now, celebrating Madame X. It was quite the journey, but it was well worth the wait.

Don't you try and police me on what's illegal and what isn't. If we are forced to talk about the album... well, the other three tracks leaked too.

    Her vocal performances this album are so much more passionate and interesting than in the last 3. Shes performing, instead of just singing. Not to mention the background vocals and harmonies which were like completely absent in recent albums.
