There will never be a Madonna album better than Ray of Light or Confessions on A Dance Floor - those two albums were just brilliantly crafted. I think MDNA will fall in the same category as Hard Candy, in my opinion. I loved Hard Candy, but it will never be my favorite. And the titles of the tracks on MDNA sound cheesy. Masterpiece seems to be my favorite track so far, as it has already leaked, and released with the W.E. soundtrack.

I think Madonna is starting to run out of ideas. 'I Fucked Up'? 'B-Day Song'? 'Gang Bang'?

I wish the rumors of Foo Fighters joining for a song were true...but it seems like LMFAO will be and not them...disappointing. But who knows, there have been different rumored setlists.

Right now it's the new song, vogue, music & like a prayer. previously heard Holiday & ray of light.

If I had to pick a set of hers I'd do - Burning Up, Borderline, Like a Prayer, Frozen, Don't Tell Me, Hung Up.

Vogue is a lock. The stage will spell out the word at one point.

It's SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!

William Orbit and Martin Solveig each produced six tracks on MDNA (maybe more), one of the Madonna fan sites broke down who produced what.

Quote:
Produced by William Orbit:

Gang Bang
Some Girls
I'm a Sinner
Masterpiece
Falling Free
Love Spent

Produced by Martin Solveig:

Give Me All Your Luvin'
I Don't Give A
Turn Up The Radio
B-day Song
I Fucked Up
Beautiful Killer
So basically, William Orbit has the interesting song titles, while Martin Solveig has the cheesy song titles.

Can't wait for the big game and halftime show. Best of luck to the Queen.

Funny I would have picked Beautiful Killer as am Orbit track rather than Gang Bang. It's his tracks that I'm most interested in to be honest

To me, the backlashed American Life still is her best album, and it still sounds very fresh too.
Hard Candy is not a bad album. Most of the songs are even good. The problem is that the 4 albums that preceded it make it sound worse and pale.

Agreed about Hard Candy. I think my favorite is either Miles Away or She's Not Me.

My biggest problem with it is how bad the CD sounds.

Fuckin' loudness wars.

My favorites on Hard Candy are Give It 2 Me, The Beat Goes On and She's Not Me. Devil Wouldn't Recognize You is really good as well. All of the live versions on Sticky & Sweet surpass the album versions.

Die Another Day, Love Profusion and Hollywood are my favorites on American Life. I prefer Mother & Father and Nobody Knows Me when they were performed on the Re-Invention Tour.

MDNA is number 1 on iTunes in 49 countries - according to her manager. Only 5 more countries till worldwide status. Good marketing move to do this on the same weekend as her Super Bowl appearance.

I like American Life a lot, but I think Die Another Day is just terrible. I think you're the first Madonna fan I've heard from who actually likes it.

And there was me thinking that there are lots of people that like Die Another Day!

That was kind of a mixed bag. She looks great. New song not as annoying as I first thought. But it just all seemed kind of weird, and she even looked awkward a few times. It didn't help that the synch on NBC seemed to be off.

Also, I'm pretty sure she lip-synched everything up to Like a Prayer, which I'm not going to rag on her for, I just thought it was weird that she busted out with live singing at the end. Or maybe that's just the one with pre-recorded vocals that didn't sound exactly like the studio versions. Am I crazy?

Well, being a huge Madonna fan, I have mixed reactions about her halftime show. I thought she was going to sing live (which I think she did for Vogue and that little mash-up of Open Your Heart and Express Yourself), but she ended up lip-syncing most of it. Disappointing in the fact that she pretty much sings live in her concerts.

Other than that, the most epic part of that whole performance - the stage and VOGUE. Enough said. It just went downhill from there, really. She also looked hot, and my friends are raving about Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A. appearing as well. That was pretty good as well.

I expected a bit more though. Now, if she can just announce the tour - please.
