Disco with a vengeance, a whomping, unapologetically airheaded engine of stroboscopic beats and succulent textures that exhumes dance music's time-honored values of celebration and affirmation. [13 Nov 2005]
But she's not attempting a simple 80's revival; for all the vaguely familiar hooks, there are also sustained, wistful overlays of strings and acoustic guitar that enfold the music like a haze of indistinct memory. [14 Nov 2005]
SantixR.Jun 11, 2010I must say that I never really paid attention to Madonna until this album. I became a fan when i heard Confessions on a Dance floor. It's great for parties and for just a person dancing in the room. For me, it's the best Madonna album to date.… Expand
JasonDNov 27, 2005Great album, will make us all forget american life.
WilliamPNov 14, 2005This is Madonna mixing fun with intelligence. Pure escapism. Love it!
MikD.Mar 13, 2009One's of the best album the last 10 years!
DeeHNov 15, 2005Great Album - Madonna is amazing. "Jump" is going to be a huge hit, especially with her die-hard fans - I hope it's the next single!!!!
Aug 24, 2010This album is one of those albums that feels like a story, meaning that the songs barely differ in quality. Although some such as "Push" and "How High" slightly dampen the feeling of, just well-made music, there's no saying that this woman isn't something of a prodigy.
Selling in its truckloads, Madonna still has it; the ability to create more of what made her originally famous. Her music. She is still talented, is looking just as great as ever in the music videos, and has topped up her talent on dancing. We are forced to ask ourselves, is there anything this woman can't do?
Still topping the charts almost 30 years on, every song has its catchiness and feel. A must-have for any fan of the legendary woman, a necessity in the form of a nice, old school Madonna album.… Expand
