  • Summary: Stuart Price co-produced the 47-year-old Anglophile's latest dance-oriented effort.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 26 out of 28
  2. Negative: 0 out of 28
  1. Confessions... is vocally sharp and (at times) lyrically breathtaking, but it is difficult to imagine this album working without Price's involvement.
  2. Sweaty, head-spinningly good dance music.
  3. Swirling, throbbing and altogether great. [19 Nov 2005]
  4. 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]
  5. The first half, in particular, has irresistible momentum... The second half drags a little, and you wish Madonna would strip the synths back to work a bass line every now and then.
  6. While she succeeds rather handsomely on those modest terms, it's more than a little odd to hear Madonna scaling back her ambition and settling for less rather than hungering for more.

    [It] sounds as if she's happy to give the people what they want: escapism and nostalgia. [Dec 2005, p.152]

    I 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.

For me, it's the best Madonna album to date. Expand

    Teach people to stunning original Madonna's music can still be so cool.

    Her most non-stop and party-influenced album yet! And it still maintains some good lyrics, so you don't have to feel guilty while you dance.

    I honestly love this album, and would say it's one of my favourites by Madonna. Every track is worth listening to and the the songs getI honestly love this album, and would say it's one of my favourites by Madonna. Every track is worth listening to and the the songs get darker and darker as you go on the album, which is why the album is named thus. It starts out fun but then as you get more involved, it gets more and more personal. Standouts on the album are "Hung Up", "Forbidden Love", and "Isaac". Expand
