    Bold, bizarre, brazen and beguiling, Madame X is Madonna living her Latin American Life. Brilliant.

    Madame X not only amply rewards such close listening, but its daring embrace of the world outside the U.S. underscores how Madonna has been an advocate and ally for left-of-mainstream sounds and ideas throughout her career.

    While it chafes against pop-musical expectations and outright defies them at times, “Madame X” does embrace that planet-altering ideal lyrically as well as musically, making it Madonna’s most compelling album in years.

    Madame X is best, though, not when it goes all CNN on us but when it plays primarily like a musical travelogue, taking us to magical mystical places so fascinating that we might not even notice the stormclouds overhead.

    Madame X is so admirably bizarre, all you can do is stand back and watch the girl go.

    Madame X isn’t just an album (if it is that at all) – it’s an opera, or a comedy of errors. It’ll make you feel confusion, frustration, happiness and maybe joy, but it will definitely make you feel.

    Overall, Madonna’s fourteenth album Madame X feels as if Mirwais had mostly completed a decent run-of-the-mill modern pop record, albeit with a cool hotch-potch global feel; hip nods in place to fado, dub and other micro-genres dunked amongst the trap and retro disco. But then just before sign-off, Herself went through the top-lines with a sharpie. ... None of these carefully curated flourishes feel as if they truly live inside the ‘whole’ of this music. Instead it all feels plonked on top of a template.

Madame X propõe uma viagem ao ouvinte e só estando disposto a fazê-la é que se desfruta de tudo que o álbum tem a oferecer. Desde a música latina à música oriental, da música clássica ao rap, da disco à house, do fado aos ritmos africanos... O que não se pode dizer é que o álbum é enfadonho. Muitos estão a dizer que houve excessos por parte de Madonna no uso de softwares de edição de voz, mas essa é uma das marcas do produtor Mirwais, que também trabalhou com a cantora no álbum American Life e imprimiu uma sonoridade similar. De toda forma, o álbum está impecável e ao ouvi-lo não senti vontade de pular sequer uma faixa. Expand

"Batuka" is something really unique. Extreme Occident and Killers Who Are Partying are unbelieveblie tracks. Even the median tracks that were released before the album, become great in the contest of Madame X. Expand

    Álbum sem coesão, músicas genéricas feito para tentar alcançar os charts mundiais.
