  1. Double CD releases count twice saleswise in many countries.

    The cameras can hang from the ceiling without blocking the view, and there are cameras that are small in size.

    I enjoyed the whole album. But I have a problem with understanding most of the words, her pronounciation is off and it sounds as if she wore the grillz on in the recording studio. It takes away from songs like "God Control" which should be "serious", or at least have a clear pronunciation. It sounds like gibberish.
  4. LAP wasn't that bad, it just sounded rather lifeless without the original music and choir. Future was meh, the autotune or whatever is distracting. They could have used playback. So many candidates that night sounded off key, I mean... Russia... UK... terrible...
  5. So the flags at the backs of the dancers were a political statement?

    Vocal Type: Mezzo- Soprano Vocal Range: 3 octaves 2 notes G2- B5 (approx) Longest Note: 17 seconds (Ray of Light at Live Earth) Vocal Pluses: Adapts her vocal style to the music she's singing well. The middle of her range is her strongest suit: it's solid, with a warm colouring and a clear timbre. Her chest voice is bright and sharp. While her head voice can be either soft and delicate, or direct and solid. Vocal Negatives: Voice becomes thin and nasal, very quickly, as it gets higher up and into the chest range.

    It's a nice song to play on the radio, it doesn't really bother me in the sense I can vacuum the house and still enjoy it. The autotune effect is unnecessary, I kind of expected a more "organic" vocal.

    Looks like something obscure Mina would do in the 1970s.

    Why domplain, it's what we deserve according to her.

    Well, we can hope that it leaks making the files worthless, so.
  11. NOTHING REALLY MATTERS stands out, the slower tempo and the harmonies really show a different side to what later became an anthemic song. HAS TO BE 1 - I like the vocal here, it sounds very intimate, rough yet polished. Probably one of her best vocal moments for me. HAS TO BE 2 - it's so trippy, I don't feel it 100%, but it slightly shows the direcrion. FROZEN - it lacks the pizzazz, but still very beautiful. Orbit elevated this into a different dimension. YOU'LL STAY - beuatiful, the chorus is sublime, the verses lack a bit of direction SKY FITS HEAVEN - I like the Orbit version, but the core magic is here too. TO HAVE AND NOT TO HOLD - one of my gaves, in every shape and form. THE POWER OF GOODBYE - I know it leaked long ago, but it doesn't sound right without the FX effects Orbit added. They could have easily put this as a b-side naming it a "remix" or sth FLIRTATION DANCE - I like it while it plays, but it's not memorable at all, it's too "same" sounding, not big moments. NEVER LOVE A STRANGER - it sounds so 1994, reminds me of some Selena song I'LL BE GONE - the sound of 1994 again, but I understand her trying that sound in 1997. Could have worked with a more modern production approach
  12. Toy Soldiers sounds nothing like Madonna. Causing A Commotion is only known among fans. It sounds as 80s as it gets and not in a memorable way.

    That's my suspicion. It's only being sold because it got shared with too many special snowflakes and things are at risk of losing it's worth.

    I think they could do anything of they bothered. Kathy Perry's censorship in music videos long after being released is a proof that things can be done.

    That reminds me of the vibe of the song "Ave Cesaria"... I'm intrigued by what she will come up with, maybe it will be a very French approach to mixing "sound of the moment" with "ethnic appropriation".
