  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]

    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

    Retrospective Review:
    It's hard to imagine Madonna topping up her best album, Ray of Light, but Confessions on the Dancefloor is the BEST
    Retrospective Review:
    It's hard to imagine Madonna topping up her best album, Ray of Light, but Confessions on the Dancefloor is the BEST album from Madonna since her Ray of Light era with its interesting concept and catchy disco-electronica tracks that are been overlooked by most people.

    Highlights: Hung Up, I Love New York, Forbidden Love, Jump, Issac and Push.
    Personal Favorties: Everything in this album.

    if there was negative score I would score - the biggest number ever. She should not be allowed to make another album after her deathworthy if there was negative score I would score - the biggest number ever. She should not be allowed to make another album after her deathworthy verison of American Pie. Expand
