Maybe her best song that wasn't really a 'hit'.

10 out of 10

I agree. I remember when I first heard Ray of Light and I felt right from the opening it was a huge artistic leap forward for her.

Ray of Light is her best work.

The new song is ok, finally heard it and it's catchy but nothing groundbreaking.

Not a big fan of this new song. Definitely a step down from Confessions.

It sounds like 90% of the top 40 crap out there. Madonna, I thought you were different.

When someone announces they're working with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, you know it's going to sound like what's on the radio today. That's kind of the point.

I think it's kind of catchy - I certainly don't hate it. I don't love it like I loved Hung Up. I couldn't stop listening to that song when it was released.

It's funny...

The press and everywhere is praising Madonna's new single and new album.
That's not what I see in the public's (non-fans) opinion... And I agree.

I repeat that for me "4 Minutes" is like an outtake from Nelly Furtado last album that was given to Madonna for her to sing... partially.
I heard the demos of 5 songs of her new album... all of them the same Timbaland-typical-sound trash and the songs don't seem worthy.
I'm gonna keep the opinion that I feel that this album is gonna break the string of 4 great pop albums.

The first reviews of the new album Hard Candy are out there to be read.

And as I predicted...
They're positive... but not fantastic. Go to wikipedia and see the links. BBC Music and The Times wrote more or less the same stuff. Madonna switched underground producers for the whores (I mean, producers) of modern pop/hip-hip/r&b in a desperate act to save her image in the US.
The songs don't seem to be bad - for what we can read - but they're no great pop songs as Madonna has presented us in the last years.

I'll wait 'till April 28th to make my appreciations, but I don't have great expectations.

'Like A Prayer' is imo her most consistent complete album. All killer - no filler.

'4 Minutes'... meh... it's growing on me - it kind of annoyed me first time I heard it - the intro is 40-45 seconds long before Madge even starts warbling. I dont know if that upset me or not...

^I could definitely do without the Timbaland part at the beginning, but once the song actually starts I love it! When "Hung Up" first came out it really made me want to explore more of Madonna's work. I could not stop listening to it. I think we all know how that further interest in Madonna's work turned out for me. Right now, I'm as obsessed with "4 Minutes" as I was with "Hung Up" when it came out.

I love love love the woman.

Madge is one fantastic woman, BUT, I think her new work is not as fantastic as COADF. 4 mins without the video - would that have worked?

the new single is catchy, but the video is a bit boring and looks part like that American Boy one with Estelle and Kanye.

plus has she had facial surgery?


she is changing........

you can see her tired looking while dancing in videos these days. all I know is that she has been absolutely amazing til now.

but, very different route these days.

I'm guessing her brother Christopher won't be invited.
