About to listen to this. I promise to be more open-minded this time: I listened to Hard Candy once and couldn't actually hear it because I was too busy shouting WHY MADONNA WHYYYYYY?? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING

Superstar might be the worst song I've heard all year. I cringed for the entirety of the song and for several minutes afterward. Just abominable in almost every respect. The the guitar-driven beat sounds like R-list Cut Copy, and the lyrics sound like something a 9 year old wisely hid in her diary. My jaw kept dropping further and further until it was through the floor. I can't grade it because I don't hate any letter in the alphabet enough to associate it with this song.

I don't mind the album itself, but it makes her present place as follower instead of trend-setter all the more obvious. These dubstep beats are going to sound absolutely horrendous in 5 or 6 years, and I already dislike US dubstep. A few bright spots here and there, more so than Hard Candy (the last few tracks are, in general, way better than everything else), but it's not some excellent return to form. There's nothing particularly refreshing or interesting here...I hear songs like Girl Gone Wild on the radio every day.

I need to listen to Hung Up/Sorry/Get Together now, for about an hour straight.

I cringed through the entirety of it. I don't know if I can bring myself to listen to it a second time.

What I love: Love Spent, Masterpiece, Falling Free, I'm Addicted, Some Girls

What I like: Gang Bang, I'm a Sinner, I Don't Give A, Give Me All Your Luvin' (seems to work as an album track)

What I despise: Superstar (every bit as bad as LM says), Girl Gone Wild, Turn Up the Radio. (All three tracks are generic radio crap.)

I never once expected the album to be on the cutting edge. Madonna is fifty-plus now and is probably only exposed to new music through her teenage daughter and whatever toy boy she's shagging this week. There's nothing new in pop music anymore anyway. It's all been before, mostly by her. If she's going to reference anyone, it might as well be herself.

Falling Free is the kind of strange drifting ballad she excels at. It reminds me of Paradise (Not for Me) and To Have and Not to Hold. I wish she'd do more of this and embrace maturity.

Madonna "Love Spent" (acoustic)

"Love Spent" is to me the best song on MDNA... By far!

And I guess I love this acoustic version as much as I love the album version.

It really frustrates me that the last three songs are good (got that William Orbit ballad magic going, a la Substitute For Love) while everything else is mediocre.

Gang Bang is really that point where Madonna becomes aware and palpably insecure of Lady Gaga. The monologue at the end with the race car samples is so stupid.

The last three songs are indeed the best, by far. I would have included Gang Bang but the ending just kills it. Hopefully it will be a single, cuz an edited version would be superior.

My favorites:
- Masterpiece
- Love Spent
- Girl Gone Wild
- Give Me All Your Luvin'
- I Fucked Up (Bonus track)

Songs that are growing on me:
- Beautiful Killer (Bonus track)
- Falling Free
- Gang Bang
- I'm A Sinner
- I'm Addicted

Cringe-worthy:
- I Don't Give A
- Superstar
- Some Girls
- Turn Up The Radio
- Best Friend (Bonus track)
- B-day Song (Bonus track)

The album's not bad, but like Hard Candy, I expected better. I mean, it is Madonna.

Goodness. I must say, I'm a little apprehensive about hearing this now.

SO stupid.

This record reeks of desperation.

I'll have to listen to the last 3 songs again. None of it made any lasting impression on me at all. I just wanted the pain to stop.

Listening now ....

Damn, you guys weren't kidding about the end of Gang Bang. Shame. I was liking the song quite a bit up until the ending.

I find Gang Bang quite amusing, mocking Guy Ritchie and his sub-Tarantino mockney gangsterism.
