An ideal "Rebel Heart" (Let's fix it!)

Recommended Posts

I see that "Rebel Heart" is a very polarizing album with all its ups and downs.

 

I love it to a certain extent, but it's not a "Confessions on a Dance Floor" for me.

 

I dislike it to a certain extent, but I don't hate it as much as I hate "MDNA".

 

So, I made up my own ideal version of it. It is as follows:

 

1. Living for Love (with no "fart" sounds)

2. Devil Pray

3. Ghosttown

4. Unapologetic Bitch (with no "fart" sounds)

5. Hold Tight

6. Iconic (with no gothic "fart" sounds)

7. HeartBreakCity

8. Joan of Arc

9. Best Night

10. Wash All over Me

11. Messiah

12. Rebel Heart

 

=deluxe edition bonus tracks=

 

13. Illuminati

14. Inside Out

15. Body Shop

16. Beautiful Scars

17. Borrowed Time

18. Addicted

19. Rebel Heart (Avicii Remix)

 

Do you have a preference like this? We have 23 official tracks and so many outtakes. So, anyone could come up with their own versions. Especially you, @@Stevie B

I actually like your alternative version @@Turuncan ! What happened to bitch I'm Madonna? Completely omitted?

For me, a perfect album should be quality not quantity and that's what made Madonna's earlier albums so special. Usually around 8 to 14 top quality tracks.

23 tracks on rebel heart is just ridiculous and unlistenable and the whole Rebel/Heart dance/ballad split doesn't do it for me.

I don't like the production on a lot of the tracks. Bitch I'm Madonna sounds unfinished (just my opinion). Wash over me sounds like a demo, and Iconic has terrible lyrics (a bit of a cliche heavy updated "like it or not" ) and I hate the production. The demo versions were better of some tracks - rebel heart and messiah.

My choice would be:
Living For Love
Devil Pray
Ghost town
Unapologetic Bitch
Hold tight
Heartbreak City
Joan of Arc
Best night
Messiah (demo version)
Rebel heart (avicii version)

Overall it isn't one of my favourite albums. I rarely listen to it.

The only standout tracks for me were devil pray and ghosttown. Living for love is my least favourite lead single alongside Give me all your luvin

Sorry for the negativity! :/
I'm sure the album brings joy to lots of fans, but not me on this occasion!

Yes, I regard 'Bitch I'm Madonna' as never happened. Ever.  :smile:  I do the same for 'S.E.X.', 'Holy Water', and the whole "MDNA" album as well.  :Madonna003: And 'Veni Vidi Vici' is just an outtake, or maybe a b-side if b-sides still exist.

There are only three tracks on MDNA that I like:

 

Girl gone wild, I'm addicted and falling free. For me it could have just been an EP! Lol.

 

And dont get me started on Hard Candy!

It's a tempting idea to play with, I'd omit a lot of the tracks such as BIM, Holy Water and whatever else is on there I don't like. But I think I'd also produce it completely differently, mainly it's the production that makes me dislike much of the album. Holy Water could do with an entirely different vocal take and production, same with Ghosttown whilst Body Shop and Nothing Last Forever just need different production to make them listenable. Never Let You Go is a keeper though, along with Tragic Girl and Inside Out.

I love if she would kept her original vision with one CD Rebel and one CD Heart. That would be so much better than randomly mix all those different sounding songs together. Plus I prefer the Avicii versions of the song Rebel Heart and WAOM. Also I like Diplos mix of BIM more than the mix on the album.

I would have gone for several EP's, instead of realizing a whole albuM. then afterwards a physical album could have been released with the 'best' tracks of the EP's.
