Mar 9, 2015Certainly, the ambition remains, along with the hunger to remain on the bleeding edge, but she's allowing her past to mingle with her present, allowing her to seem human yet somewhat grander at the same time.
Feb 27, 2015Along the way, the long, 19-song album offers its share of groaners, missteps and songs more indebted to trendy production than solid craft. But its best moments boast some of the most finely structured pop melodies of Madonna’s 32-year career.
Mar 9, 2015Rebel Heart, like its creator, pushes through the pain and, more often than not, lands solidly and with great grace on its feet.
Mar 10, 2015Rebel Heart has its fair share of those head-scratchers.... [But] Rebel Heart is a step back in the right direction.
Mar 11, 2015The album is surprisingly full of acoustic sounds and wistful balladry reminiscent of her 90s material, but it also plugs into a load of dark, restless and weird club rhythms with help from a coterie of in-demand producers.
Mar 9, 2015Rebel Heart is very much the first Madonna album that’s actually about Madonna with a majority of these tracks commenting on her own history and accomplishments with varying degrees of success.
Mar 4, 2015Ultimately, Rebel Heart feels like a wasted opportunity.

May 28, 2016It's not a great album but it's a perfect Pop record. She may not be able to attract a big number of listeners, but you better know what theIt's not a great album but it's a perfect Pop record. She may not be able to attract a big number of listeners, but you better know what the name is - **** (she's) Madonna".
With songs like "Ghosttown" and "Devil Pray" she nails it.
But the album could have been one of the best of Madonna if she had retained the material of her demo versions, especially in "Wash All Over Me" and "Beautiful Scars".
Here's a track by track review of the standard edition.
The album opens with a powerful dance anthem "Living For Love". After the heartache (breakup), Madonna feels empowered and there's no place for sadness or regrets. She says "I can forgive but I'll never forget".
The 2nd track - "Devil Pray" is easily the best track on the album. It's the best song Madonna has written in years. "Ghosttown" is another gem in the album where Madonna sings her heart out, says - "Tell me how we got this far/every man for himself/everything's gone to hell"
"Unapologetic **** is a ****y song which reflects the unapologetic nature of her madjesty, the Queen of Pop, MADONNA.
In the Kanye West assisted song "Illuminati", Madonna says - "It's like everybody in the praty shinning like illuminati" She refers a list of names here including - Beyonce, Jay Z, Queen of Britain, Gaga, Bill Gates and many others.
With **** I'm Madonna, she states that she's Madonna, "Who do you think you are?". You can't match her forte.
"Hold Tight" is a love song about holding hands in tough times.
In "Body Shop"she compares herself to a car and promises her lover "I would ride to the ends of the earth for you...I would ride through the dark of the night with you"
With "Iconic" she brings Mike Tyson in the Rebel Heart project and declares that if you "want to be a superstar" then understand her self made concept - "I can, Icon; 2 letters apart"
In my favourite track "Holy Water" she says **** get off my pole...Kiss it better/make it wetter/Don't it taste like Holy Water?"
"Inside Out" is a sex oriented song which finds Madonna singing her sex fantasies.
"Messiah", "HeartBreakCity", "Joan of Arc", "Wash All Over Me" are her vulnerable sides where she gives stunning vocal performance, Avicii flavoured beats and piano; and the orchestral piece. She closes the album saying "If this is the end then let it come/let rain/rain all over me...let it flow"
Jewel of the album - "Devil Pray"… Expand
Oct 30, 2018Very good album. It has deep lyrics, bops and it's diverse. Only point to make is that some demos were way better than the final cuts.
