    Blue Prince got a reaction from nito84bcn in Has Madonna lost interest about music?   
    I can understand how someone can feel that Madonna's quality of work has deteriorated over the past decade. But I always saw her current work in the time it was released. It's a fact that pop music in general has deteriorated and has in many ways separated itself from art. I feel like nowadays the acclaim goes to hip hop girls, to some overrated pop sweethearts that would never get that praise in the 00's and sometimes to women who have that one or two masterpieces in them before they disappear.
    Madonna has created like  three or four of those already. Fans who mostly complain now have no interest in current popular music and have that unfair expectation of Madonna to save music for them and work with old minds, whether they themselves have the creativity any more or not. 
    I believe that some of Madonna's most recent albums pale in comparison to her previous century classics but they stand out in today's musical landscape so it's a lie that she's lost interest. She's just changed with the times. And let's not pretend that she was actually making art with records like Music or Like A Virgin or Bedtime Stories. Many fans would love to crush those albums had they not been successful. But they are and fans enjoyed the music of the time better because it was actually better.
    And Madame X rocks. It's still a masterpiece hidden behind all the autotune and the 'teenagers' she collaborated with. Sometimes it's just new seasonings so that no record of hers sounds the same as the previous ones. Who could you say that about after 14 albums?

    So you think that when Madonna was recording Madame X, she was saying to herself "lets do nothing to improve the tracks or make them more creative"? the album was the most creative record of 2019 by a pop artist, nothing sounds like it. The logic of some of the users here, I swear.

    What songs was she screaming loudly on Madame X? 
    And none of the people she worked with are teenagers. They are in their mid to late 20s.

    She didn't put much effort? Seriously? She spent almost a year working on Rebel Heart recording new music, changing lyrics, melodies, production.
    That alone should prove you she was very into the music and the project as a whole, and so she was into Madame X as well, experimenting with Portuguese music, Fado and keeping the era alive (her own way) as she left the 'Madame X' Persona go on for almost three years.
    Just because you're not into something, doesn't mean she is not into it as well.

    You’re making a lot of assumptions not knowing anything about him. His last album got a high rating from Pitchfork. 
    what makes you think her children are familiar with Nigerian singers?

    How the fuck did I not notice this earlier? Rihanna getting pregnant is the perfect excuse to keep her fans begging for a new album for the next decade.

    I'd like to add to this topic with something a little different, from the real life this time. Don't tell me that the first ever pics of Rihanna being pregnant didn't ring a bell to you?

    Life imitates art, right?

    Blue Prince reacted to Desolation Row in Difficulty Of Being A Madonna Fan Around Friends and Family   
    So recently I had a bunch of my friends and family over to my house and we were talking about music and who our favorite artists are. When I mentioned Madonna as one of them, I was instantly met with a bunch of rude comments directed at her, nobody even wanted to acknowledge how important her classic period was. Why is Madonna so disrespected musically?

    Some more random MDNA thoughts:
    I Fucked Up/ Best Friend are a very underrated duo.
    The only thing that would have made the Cyberraga/ I'm A Sinner moment even better would have been a guest appearance from Fraggle Rock.
    I think the only bad song on the album is Birthday Song.
    The tour had the best version of Candy Shop.
    I never went to see it live. It's the first M era I can remember having so many videos of people being there for rehearsal. Like I cannot imagine watching her rehearse in front of me and then do the show. It's the most bizarre and fascinating thing to me about that tour/era.

    While I don't love all her albums, I think some of them are growers. Madame X was not a favorite of mine upon first listen and now I regard it as the best sounding record she has released since Confessions.

    You know if it ranks as the lowest album of her's by definition that means it's her "worst". 
    Rebel Heart is an interesting situation. I like it a lot but I wouldn't rank it one of her better albums. I just like the sound and most songs, but it does fall flat as project overall. I think it really suffers from not being a double album. Like if Rebel and Heart were separate albums I think it would be looked on more fondly because both of those themes are there but they just collide one track after the other. It's kinda jarring.

    MDNA feels more like a solid album than Rebel Heart, which has always felt like a playlist with random tracks thrown together.
    Not saying that either of those albums are “bad” or are her “worst.” I might rank them lower than her other albums.
    They just needed some A&R lovin, like the Warner albums.

    Yes, I stand corrected. Courage sold 333k and Madame X sold 313k but it is possible Madame X could overtake it one day. I can't think of any example other than that.  Celine was 51 and Madonna 60 for their last albums.
    However, if compare Madonna to her relative contemporaries by age, Madonna obliterated Celine when she was 51, as well as all the other divas of the 80s / 90s. Time will tell how Celine sells at age 60.

    I also had a change of heart for this album. Second one actually as I loved it when it first came out and after a few years I didn't. Fans always consider this particular album her lowest point along with Hard Candy, but MDNA is far superior. You can listen to it all the way through without getting a headache, like from HC's inexplicably long tracks and their RnB beats.
    It can feel rushed and like a mess but it wasn't meant to be more than that. But even for those who take each piece of Madonna's discography very seriously, they can see it as one of the most reflective pieces of Madonna's life. Having divorced from her company, from her man, having rebellious teenage children all over the place, a woman on the last of her reproductive days, she was going through a lot. MDNA came out to be a divorce record with great energy to match her peers and even her children's energy. She was angry then she was sad then bitter and this record was her catharsis in a way.
    We have to appreciate it for the honesty, it being more vulnerable than even the least known tracks of COADF. For its dance quality which puts most of today's pop albums to shame. Of course we could all do without some of its tracks like Superstar and GMAYL. But that is for every album she makes. Like A Prayer's Love Song is kinda meh, Ray of Light's Shanti/Ashtangi, Erotica's Did You Do It? and so on.
    That said I still can't get over tracks like Girl Gone Wild, I'm Addicted, Gang Bang, Some Girls, I Don't Give A, I'm A Sinner and Masterpiece. I have started to enjoy Love Spent and Falling Free as well. The sound well has somehow aged. But I've learned to enjoy it for what it was back then and all memoried associated to it.
    There is a smaller great album in MDNA and very Madonnaesque, just not the part of her some fans can appreciate. A mourning album by a divorced woman is always better received. A mad divorced woman doesn't click. I'd even put it ahead of Hard Candy, Like A Virgin, Music and probably beside her first one. It's not polished and it's not complete, but her life wasn't either.

    "What's the hardest thing about being a mom?"

    "How do you balance motherhood and your career?"

    We know those would be the questions.
