    Blue Prince got a reaction from Levon in Music Vs. American Life (The battle of Mirwais)   
    I prefer American Life but if it's a production battle Music has much more to offer.
    AL has some of the best songs M has ever made and people tend to forget about because they are less noisy. Nothing Fails, for example, Intervention, Xstatic Process. They would have been huge hits by a band like Green Day back then. 
    No other song feels like filler except I'm So Stupid. Music's lyrics are not particularly brilliant on the other hand, not on Paradise, not on Impressive Instant nor even Don't Tell me. But the album is the pop gem it is with glorious production and confidence.

    In retrospective, I agree with this. Music is legendary and Iconic. Ok, everybody was wondering what she was going to do after such an iconic, perfect, peak album like Ray of light, and changing the direction with Mirwais was risky but genius at the same time, for Music, Don´t tell me , I deserve it and gems, traditional but very 21 century fitting at the same time. What´s more, she was in great spirits for this albums and it´s promo, after having Rocco, with great energy, and even if the album have very dark and alternative moments like the amazing Paradise not for me, overall I remeber it as a very shining and happy Madonna era. I came as a fan in 1999, one year after ROL was smashing the charts, so American Pie and this were my first Madonna releases as a fan, and they were very succesful, so I was in the moon and still love them. On a not so positive note, I don´t think the Orbit stuff is as good as it should, ok it´s not bad, but it´s not shining either, which was downer, after doing such an amazing work on ROL. But there you have Patrick Leonard and others involved, so there you have your answer. One last thing: I always loved Gone, and has a very special place in heart forever.
    Mmmm, American Life had a very special place in my heart in 2003 and for many years after being released. It is more of a full Mirwais record. I love it for personal reasons, but I agree it has its problems. The production is not as rich as in Music, as it is a low key record for a big part, but sometimes it migh sound undercooked. Then her mood was not as happy and shining as with music, although she looked amazingly beautiful as a brunette, but overall the feeling was depressing, the retired great clip, then the one wirh the flags, people not liking the title track,  and then after all the criticism, the single without videoclip and Madonna hidding the initial concept and turning blonde again with Love Profussion and hollywood left an image of an era like semi aborted. I agree that the concept of criticising America with the Che guevara cover did not represented well the album, that is in general quite personal and low key. So all in all, despite the very good songs here and there, a mess. I agree Die another day was not fitting. But the next tour was amazing and she did recover amazing with Confessions, so, well American Life is not her best records, but it also has a special place in my heart.  
    But overall I would choose Music I think.

    Music's singles are much stronger, but as a cohesive album, I think American Life is much stronger. That's where my point goes.

    I am still fueled by the wonderful music and videos she created just three years ago. 
    It's unfair to say she's been on a steady decline since her divorce. If embarrassments like this video is all it takes to get it out of her system and get back on track for a next album, so be it.

    Let’s be honest, Madonna didn’t make Mirwais. She put a name out there for him, but he rarely ever works with other artists. Hes very stubborn. He’s mentioned numerous times through the yrs that he’s turned down many big name artists, all because “once you work with Madonna, there’s no one bigger than that.”

    Over 400 million records sold she says? I do hope her numbers get updated because she's always placed at around 300+
