Do you really show me a list of rankings? Really?

Then, of course, MDNA is just objectively her worst album, because four rankings say that. Now I can give you four list with Madonna ranking as the worst singer in the world or the worst artist. Using your logic, they would be objectively right...

I can't beat your four "holy" rankings. You are objectively right with MDNA (apparently, that's what you need to hear)

After finding myself in this thread I just start playing Madame X.

I learn to value more albums when I listen to them in vinyl instead of custom playlist etc.

Even Hard Candy that I didn't care much when it came out. MDNA I liked it at the beginning because it was so different from Hard Candy but the interest faded fast. Still listening in one go with vinyl is more enjoyable, all the bonus tracks aren't missed.

 

Ummm all the bonus tracks are on the vinyl except Falling Free Acoustic

Come on, she was barely even involved in the making of MDNA. She just bought a few songs and changed a comma here and there to get songwriting credit. 

I agree with you, but remember one thing. Madonna needed songs made by others at the beginning of her career. So for me that it's not a problem. And many of her hits are songs written by others with two words changed by her.

The songs that she did write are non-sense generic pop songs. It's a fun album and I do listen to it sometimes, but it can hardly stand next to any of her other albums. It's a Britney Spears kind of album. 

Ummm holiday, like a Virgin, Love don’t live here anymore, papa don’t preach, open your heart, la Isla Bonita, spotlight, vogue, justify my love, Fever, bedtime Story, frozen, Ray of light, sky fits heaven, Candy perfume girl. 
Just a few songs that she bought or ripped off haha.

?? La isla bonita, Vogue, Frozen and Sky fits heaven were all written by her. Fever, ROL and LDLHA are covers so it doesn't really fit this discussion. 

And yes, she had released songs that she didn't write before, but never a whole album. She had never not cared before.

Of course. However, it wasn't an entire album and it was much, much better written songs.

La Isla Bonita was done for MJ and Quincy Jones rejected it. But that might have been just the instrumental.

She wrote the lyrics to Vogue based on a song popular in the ballroom culture at the time and got sued by the original artist.

Frozen is a ripoff from a Scandinavian rock band. They sued her for it and won.

I think covers do count as well

It's the first time I heard about the Vogue lawsuit. Do you have any sources? I'd like to read about it. And even if it wasn't original, she was still the author of the song. :)

For Frozen, I think you're getting your facts mixed up. The lawsuit (which she actually won in the end) was started by a Dutch guy called Salvatore Aquaviva or something and he sued her over the lyric "love is a bird, she needs to fly". Unless you are referring to an entirely different lawsuit I've never heard about? Even then, again, it would mean that it wasn't original, not that she didn't write it.

I was wrong. She wasn't sued for Frozen over "love is a bird, she needs to fly", she was sued over the instrumental intro (and won the case). So nothing to do with the songwriting anyway. 

Why try to deny Madonna's efforts and accomplishments as a songwriter? The truth is that she has consistently written the vast majority of her songs, except for a few tracks here and there. She had more songs written by other artists at the very beginning, but that's normal for a new artist that's still following the label's every instruction.

No one is trying to deny Madonna's efforts as songwriter. But tell me why we must to love "Open Your Heart" or "Like A Virgin" and we must to hate "Love Spent" or "Gang Bang". That's the point of this debate.

You don't have to hate anything. I just personally find it a lot less appealing to know that it wasn't her input for most of the album, that's all.

Haha some of the Bonus tracks are my favorites. I fucked up, best friend and Beautiful Killer ☺️

Really? I think they all rub me on the wrong way somehow, there's something mopey about them, or maybe its because the birthday song is in between.

This is an album that I played  a lot when it came out and I was pleased with the brainless pop and EDM vibe. But annoys me  a bit now. And I do still enjoy fun brainless pop, so it's nothing about musical maturity or crap like that. Maybe I'll get back to it.

Ha I know what you mean. When it first came out I played the album to death and then I never touched it for years but now I love it again. 
Those 3 bonus tracks are my faves, along with Give Me all Your Luvin, I Don’t Give A and Some Girls. And I hate Superstar, Bday Song, Falling Free and Gang Bang.

Honestly I play this more often than some fan favorites like Confessions and Ray Of Light…

I actually love Falling Free, Gang Bang I liked it when it came out not anymore ( I think because of the MDNA tour) . I do like Some Girls and GMAYL.

I realized I was thinking about Rebel Heart when I said about the Bonus tracks.

Gonna give a couple of runs to MDNA. This thread is making me listen to all of them

Same here, and I love Confessions and Ray of Light, but I play some singles from these albums, not the albums. I play more often MDNA (the album).
