  2. I looked on the Daily Mail comments section earlier, and people are actually saying nice things about Madonna. They're saying how beautiful she looks without all the filters and they liked her dress.

  7. First of all, yes, we all know the first edition of Celebration had a couple of big errors here and there, but they were fixed for subsequent editions. As for streaming, if you listen to it in the MQA version on TIDAL it's quite the treat. Have you warmed up to it since? I certainly have. I appreciate it a lot more than I did back then. A lot has to do with that rant about how awful everything on it is, a rant that got to me, even though I thought I managed to escape it. So before Finally Enough Love, I think it's time to give Celebration another shot at taking its rightful place in the M canon. GHV2 may have given us an amazing megamix, but it gave us nothing in terms of remastered or new content. Celebration really delivered if you think about it. So here are a few of my thoughts on revisiting Celebration and it's legacy. Would love to hear yours... Pros: - remastered Immaculate Collection remixes - remastered radio edits - extended Frozen version - unique edits: Cherish, Dress You Up*, Express Yourself etc. Cons: - Wasted space on album versions that didn't need remastering (Hung Up, Music, Hollywood etc). I think they should have stopped remastering album versions around Ray of Light. - The remastering is well done, but I still would have preferred they didn't go so far with the loudness - Holiday taking up 1 and 1/2 the time of most other songs. The Immaculate Collection version should have been on there imo. * I know people freaked out that the first three drum sounds were gone, but they were only included in the album version as a nod to live music imo. Even today, listen to any live band rock concert and the drummer does those three drum sounds before actually starting the song. Considering that, for me the new version is better without them. It's a studio version, the tap-tap-tap just sounds weird to me if it's not in live music.

  8. You can't tell me Madonna doesn't look insanely beautiful and as naturally gorgeous as she looked in the RH era here in these unfiltered pics. She looks deadass stunning. Also seeing her with long and colorful dresses after years of corsets and shorts is something amazing!

  9. It's hard for me to make peace with it, and I try from time to time, but... I've learned to accept that is a general public release and for them it's a great collection full of hits and don't give a damn about the versions or the mastering or whatever. If you check out the Deluxe tracklist is amazing to see the amount of HITS there and still there are more hits not included. How many artists have that? Also, I try to see it as a product of its time: 2009 was loudness war at its peak and also iPod and MP3 players peak, everything was mastered and compressed to death with those in mind (it was going to sound not great anyway) plus she was leaving Warner and nobody seemed to care that much about the whole project. Things I love: - The new songs (yeah, "Revolver" too), three if we count the "Celebration" remix (OK, mum, you were right about that decision, it's better than the album version). - "Lucky Star" and "Borderline": to these ears the only two properly remastered songs on the collection. "Lucky Star" never sounded better than this version. - The segue of "Erotica" into "Justify My Love". - The personal Thank You's from her in the booklet. - The marketing campaign! Warned didn't spend a dollar on the proper product but the marketing part was quite good Things I don't: - That they never cared to fix "Music" when it's full of clips and glitches and sounds AWFUL. - That they combined Album Versions with Single edits and Immaculate remixes without any logic. - That "Like A Prayer" comes from a bad master or a video rip or something and it's slower than the original. - The overall "remastering" (more like a bass booster and make it everything louder). - "It's So Cool": don't like it that much, to be honest. - The booklet (not enough pages, not even a small text looking back etc.) and the credits (those mistakes...). - The DVD. Plus bonus beats! The Cover I LOVED the original revealed cover, back in July 2009: It looked quite iconic until they decided to add the lyrics for the final version: A little bit messy and too much in my opinion. Since that, I like best the Standard cover:

  10. Britney is one of us, she's as thrilled to have Madonna there as we would be. Wishing her the best.

  11. i just hated the sequence - to me all greatest hits should be oldest to newest songs. its an ok compilation even though we have most of the songs already - to me the biggest letdown was the video compilation .... a travesty for someone who is probably the best video artist of all time - MJ and Bjork being the follow ups

  24. I respect you have doubts about her but in my opinion, it's not about "not being afraid to speak the truth". She's a professional actress. You don't have to "see it". She just have to act and convince you, it's her job and what she's good at. She's already convinced Madonna and a whole team of casting and movie professionals but you don't "see it" watching a couple of interviews of her... that's my point. Just wait, please. If the movie is out and Julia is not great, I'll be the first one to say so. But in the meantime, trust Madonna and her project - I don't believe she's messing with it at all.

  25. I'll say it again: we need to launch a petition to Geffen to release a special 40th anniversary edition of the Vision Quest soundtrack, including WS and the demos and movie versions of Crazy for you and Gambler! Also petition to re-release the movie including deleted scenes and full Madonna performances! We need to find a contact for Geffen representatives and director Harold Becker (who is already 93...). I don't have hopes that Warner is interested.

  32. Not to mention, Lucky Star and Borderline has a unique Q-sound remix that is different from the IC Q-sound remix but other than that and the ones you mentioned, the whole Celebration project was a hot mess.

  33. @thegoldencalf @Prayer Oh, you're right. I've forgot "La Isla Bonita" Super Mix and the 40 CD-Singles Japanese collection. No Geffen logo at least on the CD-Single (only the Sire logo) Well, we'll wait patiently for the extended version & instrumental on CD or Streaming...

  34. Seems like it? Looks like they bought the rights for "Crazy For You" (in 1990 maybe?), it's been included on 3 of her compilations and its not "licensed by: X" on the credits: (That said, the "Celebration" credits, well...) Looks like "Gambler" is not Warner BUT on the other hand, it appeared in Japan on "La Isla Bonita" Super Mix EP and later on the CD Single Collection box set. So maybe only for Warner Japan? It's confusing.
