Funny, the thing about this record that I don't like is the lyrics which I thought the two times I listened to it (before putting it away forever) is that the lyrics sound like high school poetry. Sorry. Madonna may indeed have deep thoughts but she's not a good writer imo which is why I've always preferred fun Madonna to trying-to-be-deep Madonna.

I think her new song is great.
I'm looking forward to hearing the whole album.

Well, maybe when you said that you were thinking about that rap part in 'American life' or 'Die another day', but try to hear tracks 3 to 9 and you'll understand what I'm saying.
I do not prefer the funny Madonna cause she sounds silly like that, but I like a good pop album - like Madonna does perfectly - with good and conscious lyrics.

I am watching it right now. I can't take my eyes off of the tv, and I never thought I was a Madonna fan before.

Ok, I will admit Gimme Gimme Gimme is an ok production. One of my ABBA faves is Dancing Queen, but the original is too perfect anyway, she might have fucked it up like she did with American Pie.

The intro of Gimme x3 could be a little more.. sure I like the opening filters but how often is it that I heard those.

Everyone likes Ray of Light. Its more a William Orbit album though..

So Madonna! Punk girl! Bitch! Dancer! Back after the American Life disaster (her lowest selling album by the way). She does a lot of publicity stunts at the moment.

The title track is just first single, but there are best songs there as 'Intervention', 'Nobody knows me', 'Mother and father', 'Easy ride', 'I'm so stupid'. I like the mixture or the Mirways sound and with lots of acoustic/electric guitars, sound sometimes like Depeche Mode, someting like that.
The album flopped because of American sales (because of the first 2 tracks that sounded too political and like a punch for some... guys). Here in Europe the album was quite successful.
I tried to like this album, but I really can't stand it outside of "Hollywood." I do like that one. And many of the lyrics annoy the hell out of me, so I would really disagree in terms of describing the lyrics as "deep."

Quote:
I hope the new album beats American Life, Ray Of Light, Erotica or Like a Prayer...
I'm listening to the radio edit of "Hung Up" right now. It already blows "American Life" out of the water, and will probably be her most epic album since "Ray of Light." I'd accuse her of ripping off of Kylie Minogue or Cher, but both of them were just ripping off of "Ray of Light"-era Madonna anyway. How things go full circle.

Sorry, but I do not find any of the lyrics on American Life to be "deep." Again, that's not to say that Madonna does not have deep thoughts or that she isn't a deep person but that lyrics are not her strength, imo. The lyrics on American Life almost make me laugh in fact. Good lyrics are certainly not a requirement for me to appreciate good pop music either but I just couldn't find much on American Life to connect with. Also, I said I prefer "fun" Madonna--not "funny" Madonna--two different things. Anyway, it doesn't matter--we both adore Madonna and it doesn't have to be for the same reasons.

I just realized at the movies the other night that Hung Up is in a commercial they show before the trailers..I think it's for a cell phone that has iTunes on it. I've been seeing that commercial at the movies for over a month now.

Madonna is in the commercial as are some other musicians

If it's the ABBA song you're talking about then....

People writing beautiful new pop songs would give us hope for pop music. Digging up old songs and putting some electronic crap on top of it, won't change the world of music.

'American Life' - sigh. It had such potential. Lets put it this way - I have amix CD with 21 Madonna tracks - 4 come from 'AL' - 'Holywood', 'Die Another Day', 'Nothing Fails' and 'Nobody Knows Me'. Frankly the rest is a bit diabolical. I see what she was trying to achieve - but goddamn - Mirwais' bleepy shit just annoys the hell out of me.

'Hung Up' is excellent though - and will be the new track 21 on my next Madonna mix. Sorry 'Where's The Party' - you will have to be cut from the playlist to make way for the new - you are now the weakest link!

This is one of the greatest pops songs of the last 5 years by a distance. I've never considered myself a madonna fan really, I saw the VOgue video for the first ever time on holiday and was blown away, it's fantastic. Heard this yesterday and downlaoded it when I got home, it's incredible.

It's so good to hear an artist try something different and for it to work. I didn't think this time last wee I'd be buying the new madonna album, but I may not be able to resist.
