[Co-producer Mirwais Ahmadzai's] deft touch for crafting disarmingly warm songs out of synthetic tools gives Music a rich, human quality that nicely underscores Madonna's quietly personal -- if purposefully vague -- lyrics.... it's the music that ultimately sucks us into Music.
It's her most patchwork record since the Sean Penn years.... In the way it tiptoes around sundry moods and beats, ''Music'' is frustratingly inconsistent, as if Madonna herself weren't sure where to venture next. At times, it feels like a collection of sounds -- clever, intriguing ones, to be sure -- that seek to compensate for ordinary melodies and Madonna's stoic delivery.
Music breaks down neatly into three discrete sections, on which I'll hang the very technical names the dance part, the good part, and the dirge part. The good part, so named because it's really good, accounts for half of Music's 10 songs, conveniently nestled into tracks four through eight inclusive, so you can play that section over and over again without interruption.

I guess that too many fans were expecting a RAY OF LIGHT PART 2...
Granted, there may not be a FROZEN and a THE POWER OF GOODBYE, but overall the album is by far more pleasant than RAY OF LIGHT (which has too many weak songs).
Not only the title track and DON'T TELL ME are some of her best songs, also MUSIC is an album full of hidden gems such as NOBODY PERFECT, GONE, I DESERVE IT, PARADISE and WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A GIRL, her most underrated single.
The only weak songs are AMAZING and RUNAWAY LOVER: they aren't bad tracks per se, they simply don't fit in the album. Unfortunately William Orbit's sound sounds dated compared to Mirwais' one.… Expand

ZaneSMay 6, 2008I personally think this is her best album since the late 80s, and still hasn't made a record of equal or better value. "Confessions," I personally think this is her best album since the late 80s, and still hasn't made a record of equal or better value. "Confessions," "Hard Candy" and "American Life" were all mediocre, while "Music," "Ray Of Light" and "Like A Prayer" were all absolutely amazing. Stand-out tracks are the title track, "Impressive Instant," "What It Feels Like For A Girl" and "Don't Tell Me."… Expand

With "I Deserve It" and "Gone," the legacy of the corporeal and spiritual Madonna lays downThe real standouts here, though, are the ballads. With "I Deserve It" and "Gone," the legacy of the corporeal and spiritual Madonna lays down amid the simplicity of basic percussive beats and acoustic guitar.Filled with vocoders, stylish neo-electro beats, dalliances with trip-hop, and, occasionally, eerie synthesized atmospherics, Music blows by in a kaleidoscopic rush of color, technique, style, and substance.... an appealing, addictive record.… Expand
