  1. Me and my friends are going! Late and in middle of a week but finally at least some Madonna related activity in Toronto in yearsssssss... Miss the good ol' Madonna all-night parties in Church lol.
  2. Hmmm, maybe I'm mistaken but I'm pretty sure that those Hi-Res HD Tracks ones were Vinyl rips at 192. But I came across this MQA article that they explain the mastering process of "Like a Virgin" and seems like all their blog posts are from 2017-2018. Perhaps they just posted it on that date, but I definitely hear an improvement on the clear vinyl in comparison with the old pressings...
  3. I remember reading that a newly remaster was done back in 2019 with a scan and re-recording of the old tapes, that's why got the new Hi-Res 192 khz files on Qobuz and Tidal, plus the Crystal Clear vinyl of the first three albums + WTG OST. I think this happens because the record label has the mentality of: "If this sells very well already with a regular edition tracklist/edition, why bother?" - Smaller bands/labels release shitload of box sets, remixes, editions because they need the cash flow... Madonna selling a standard lazy 10-track "Music" album, already does millions. That's why they released "The Holiday Collection" after, as a companion EP of The Immaculate Collection. Of course she's a musician, but above that, she's a business woman first who just happens to be an artist and have passion for music. She will NEVER do anything beyond or extra for the sake of love for the music, if it's not making her money or supposes a future interest. Whereas Bowie or Prince I think breathed music and just sat in their houses to play instruments for free on an afternoon. It's because everybody has a different notion of "what should an upscale be". Interlaced did an amazing job upscaling but he loved to keep all the grain, vhs tape noise and other vintage artifacts faithful to the original tapes. Nasty and other guys did the opposite, they did almost a CGI plastic version of her videos, which pleased many people (myself included in some cases). Personally, I'd be in the middle considering that they should remove all the noise and do a great digital restoration of the image to make it as clean and sharp as possible, but without making her look like a Final Fantasy character, lmao.
  4. Expansive could also mean the "useless" extended, instrumental and dub versions we got on the True Blue and Like a Prayer Spotify edition... I really wish they'll include demos and unreleased material, but also seeing that Madonna herself "will oversee" the releases, she might not want to put enough unreleased material (or at least not all) and hold off on many things, since she didn't put them in the album in the first place (if it were just Warner, they def would include all to make more $$)
  5. well it says "apparently"... while in the official press release it says 17 studio albums, so probably they just don't want to confirm / announce anything yet about new material (which won't happen in a few years anyway).
  6. I'm so excitedddddd!!! I just hope she doesn't get in the way of releasing demos and unreleased stuff...
  7. Thanks for the thorough explanation! My concern is for the music videos shot after the 1990s (when editing software began to appear, rather than manual cut and paste, transition effects, etc)... which yes, could've been shot in film but then if it was scanned at whatever resolution the machine was capable at the time (576p probably), feed that into the video editing program and edit from there, the master would be locked at that resolution (or whatever resolution a master tape would handle, but I doubt 4K or even HD). Unless specifically it was re-exported back into film. So in that case, it would be somewhat of a complicated job as they'd have to scan all the original film footage again in 4K, and have someone to re-edit the music video (or replicate it frame by frame as the original) to have the same result. I think George Michael did that with one of his videos (the director himself was involved in the re-editing process) and it looked amazing. However, I doubt Warner/Madonna would invest that much money, time, and people power into doing something like this... which is very sad considering she has many best videos ever in the pop music history :( Maybe they'll put an effort only with big videos like Vogue.
  8. What sometimes glooms me is that "what if" one dies before Madonna and just the thought of knowing she'll make more new music (or unreleased stuff surfaces) and one won't be alive to hear that... daunts me, lol. Or not be able to witness a Blond Ambition Paris 8K remaster made from long lost tapes found in the Paris' catacombs... xD
  9. or they'll just release another CD-DVD combo with previously released material and standard DVD in a cardboard box set xDDDDD
  10. I remember reading somewhere that after the Confessions massive success, Madonna was already lining up with the Pet Shop Boys to create a second dance album, like Confessions 2.0; but Warner for some reason (maybe so she won't sounded repeated) thought it would be cool if she went to the RnB/Urban direction and they convinced her to go that route... Big mistake. However, listening this album nowadays, I still enjoy it and find it at least somewhat more coherent than the mess that was Rebel Heart or Madame Mess, MDNA is another generic EDM mess but I really enjoy that album lol.
  11. Well, I gotta admit that after last night's Time Square 1 minute loop video I was disappointed when they "promised us" a short film and it was nothing like it, and I thought that private event was gonna be just her, the DJs and a few people in it considering the Covid situation. But this morning I woke up to all these videos and wow, didn't know it was gonna be a packed venue full with fans and press, that was very amazing to see (still wondering about the health issue, fully vaxed people can still get sick and be contagious). Anyway, she finally remembered Hung Up! Was so happy with that and IDSIF performance. Not a big fan of the boobs out looking sideways, but the outfit and the blue wig was very cool and she looked happy. You could see she was really enjoying herself and seems like she really missed being in touch with the audience! Hope this gives her strength and motivation to release a dance record! <3 A cool surprise for the fans with this casual appearance :D
  12. ...Introducing: MDNA Pride Skin, be proud of your skin whoever you are.
  13. If this is all that it was... Then why did she posted a video with all those DJs names (making us think there will be some sort of release), then hyping up with mysterious photos... then the whole Boom Boom Room event, then Ricardo saying "Yall not ready"... of course this is going to create big expectations... And now, not even the event that she's in is right now is being streamed.
  14. This is just like the Olympia show... people thinking it'd be a full MDNA intimate show hahaha. But seriously... all this hype about a short film and stuff, just to get 2 minute video repeated on loop without audio??? She looked hot though! But it reminds me so much of the Xstatic Process photoshoot / Vogue RIT backdrop... I guess she could've at least put a speaker and say a message, since she already gathered all these people in one place, better take advantage xD
  15. Another short film like Secret Project, HER Story to be screened tonght with a short Madonna appearance at the Boom Boom Room (to sell the polaroid for charity I guess). Madame X tour will be on Netflix later this year.
