1. The Descent
Starts as a very slow ballad. Lots of dark-sounding strings and synths. No beats until the outro comes and the song explodes into a long chaotic electronic instrumental part. The songs ends with the strings from the beggining
2. Welcome to the House of Madness
Starts with slow strings and then the guitar comes and Madonna goes wild in this explosive metal-influenced track with electronic elements. The song's ending is the beggining of the next track
3. Bitch (feat. Nicki Minaj)
Dark EDM track with trap beats and some house elements. Starts with a 80s synth. Madonna raps too
4. God Save the Queen
Trip Hop downtempo song with beats that get each verse heavier and depressive lyrics. Madonna's vocals are sad, heavy and slow. The songs ends with very heavy drums mixed with piano, strings and hip hop samples and goes slowers in the last seconds.
5. If You Go Away
Similar production to the 2000s cover, but with more reverb and slower piano
Midtempo EDM song with dark, angry but sad vocals. Trust No Bitch younger sister.
7. Knives and Guns Are a Girl's Best Friends
Now it's full 90s House mode. Gun sounds in the beggining, this song sounds like something from Erotica but heavier, it's like Deeper and Deeper meets I Don't Search I Find meets Living For Love. Spoken word bridge with French lyrics.
8. Don't Call Me Baby (feat. The Weeknd)
Dark Disco song with some Trap beats in the post-chorus. The bridge features slowed and quiet instrumental that progressively goes into a explosive final chorus.
9. See You in Hell
Addicted 2.0 with even heavier guitar amd very intense vocals. Starts slower with only the electric guitar, the chorus is heavier and it introduces the drums. Ultimate sad femme fatale song. It's like Lana Del Rey's Pretty When I Cry but angrier and more midtempo
A rock ballad with only electric guitar and some bluesy beats, the word cum is not feature in the song btw.
11. HerStory (Interlude)
Madonna talks about life, legacy, being brave, horny and never stopping being the baddest bitch in town. Starts with quiet ambient sounds and in the end there is a strings solo.
12. meet ME
90s-inspired House song with strings and some Disco elements. Lady Gaga's Sine from Above and Free Woman meets Dua Lipa's Boys Will Be Boys sonically and goes a little but not too much darker. The outro is very different from the rest of the songs, being a metal ballad that turns into a guitar solo that fades into strings and some spoken words.
13. Never Let You Go
Reworked Rebel Heart outtake, with better production, but similar instrumentals. Ends with strings leading into the final track.
Dark EDM track with hyperpop elements and angry vocals. The outro is longer and the sing ends with slow light-sounding strings and quiet ambient sounds
