The Ultimate Review

Confessions On A Dance Floor is one of Madonna's greatest albums. It is driven away from her previous albums of religion or polotics. The Confessions album has a very well worked sound, nice melodies, a electronic sound with many influencec of dance and club music. The disco theme is main and best feature of the album with 70's disco classics mixed for the latest generation like "Hung Up" featuring ABBA's "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie (A Man After Midnight)", Sorry which contains the intro of Jackson 5's "Can You Feel It", "Future Lovers" which has terrific sample of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" and "Jump" which has a melody of "It's A Sin" from the Pet Shop Boys biggrin.gif In spite of being a dance pop album, the songs are not cheesy or senseless, on the contrary they have a very deep sound and meaningful lyrics like Forbidden Love or Issac. In this review it will refer to the album having alot of genres like pop, dance and disco, theres also some other genres that are included such as retro and old school. infact you could almost say it has the escence of every Madonna album made but mainly 80's pop music from "Like A Prayer" "Madonna" and "Like A Virgin". Remixes is another main key of this album, the singles are filled with remixes from the PSBs, Paper Face and Thin White Duke. Like all Madonna albums it showed a new face of Madonna, the 48 year old shows that even a mother can wear a liatard or be disco queen. Buzzjacker are quite impressed with the direction of Madonna. It's basically a catchy, jumpy energetic album with different sounds in all the songs. However all albums have there bad points and being Madonna there are a few unsure.gif

Songs like "Hung Up" can loose there sparkle as being played to much on the radio, Sorry which which can annoy the listener as the repeat of "I Heard It All Before" can put people of. Buzzjackers have said some of the songs don't fit at the rest of album, main complained tracks are "I Love New York" whcih has been classed as embarrasing, "Issac" which has the most haunting sound from the rest album and final track "Like It Or Not" doesn't really show the best of her vocal talents. But in all of that the Madonna album is solid gold ohmy.gif cool.gif

During the entire era people have enjoyed the costumes, artwork and live preformances. You also loved that Madonna had made a super great massive comeback after the flop of American Life and it's singles. Speaking of singles all the singles have great remixes, when you think the pop tracks couldn't get anymore of electronic sound the remixes just burst out with some fab remixes plus also Madonna gets time to make a B-Side for Jump called "History" which has a simple tune but the choice and time of the singles could have been better. But the Confessions era really was a fabulous era.


ULTIMATE VIDEO FROM COADF


Of corse, Hung Up would win the ultimate video. Hung Up was filmed during the healing of Madonna's incident with the horse earlier that year, she mainly lived on pain killers for the entire video, The video is true pop at it's best with dancing and a bit of a plot of Madonna going to a club and "Boogie Woogie" laugh.gif The look insational with her fire red hair and her pink liatard cool.gif And the dance moves that any one would love to learn.


And another fabulous victory as it pics the best Live song of the era, with guests of the Gorillaz. Hung Up is gonna be a true classic



Live At The Grammy's... Ladies and Gentlemen I give you Madonna yahoo.gif cheer.gif yahoo.gif cheer.gif yahoo.gif cheer.gif

I would love to thank everyone who took part, And I hope you agree with the review rolleyes.gif

What Do You Like From The Album?
I love the sounds of the album, cause it mixes dancefloor fillers with experimental and electronic sounds and a lot of disco music. In spite of being a dance pop album, the songs are not cheesy or senseless, on the contrary they have a very deep sound and meaningful lyrics (except for "I Love New York", of course, which is quite stupid in my opinion).

What did you like the most about this era?
I love the fact that Madonna came back to what she does best: entertain with great dance pop music. After "American Life", which was full of ballads and controversy (I don't complain, I like that album as well) we needed something fresh and up to date, and Madonna (of course) never failed to deliver.

What Do You Dislike From The Album
This is not something I dislike right now, but when I first bought the album, I didn't feel any strong track apart from "Get Together" and the back then current single "Hung Up" on first listen... but the songs managed to grow on me a lot soon after. Now my favourite songs are the non-released album tracks bar a few exceptions ("I Love New York"/"Like It Or Not").

Fave Video From The Album
"Get Together"... I think it's the most original out of them all. "Jump" is a close second, though.

Favorite Preformance From The Era
"Feel Good Inc./Hung Up" with Gorillaz at the 2006 Grammy Awards. It was full of energy and it mixed two great dance tracks.

The top 4 on my list are all my joint faves, absolutely love them, Let It Will be is just wub.gif
Theres not a single filler track on the album, I love all 12, one of the best albums I own, and amazing how every song just flows into the next wub.gif The Reinvention tour mix of ILNY is better than the Confessions version, however.
My fave video from the era is Sorry and my fave Performance is Get Together when she did Parkinson.

What do you like about this album

I guess i love the mood, retro, old skool disco reinvented for modern times! Its the soundtrack to my everyday life. Throughout the whole CD; Its just purely classic Madonna through and through! Jump is reminicent of 1989's Keep it Together and perfect companion to Nothing really Matters, Sorry's a throw back to the pet shop boys and Hung Up proves Madonna's pop genius of marrying old and new sounds and remain cutting edge! This is what i love about the album then, that its just a collection of incredible sounds that bring back to life the likes of Donna Summer, Pet shop boys and even vintage Madonna herself!

What did you like the most about this era

That Madonna came back and kicked everyone's arse after they wrote her off during American Life! Madonna was back at making mainstream, 'Madonna' style pop music, she simply defied gravity and the whole 70's revisitng put us back on the dance floor! smile.gif

What did you dislike the most about this era

I'm most fond of this era thank u very much smile.gif

Sorry

What do you like about this album - I like the direction she took with it, I didn't expect this style from her and it was very unexpected, and I was beyond impressed when I bought this album and gave it it's first listen.

What did you like the most about this era - I'd say opened me up to Madonna more. I already really liked her, but it made me discover more.

What did you dislike the most about this era - I can't think of anything major offhand, so I'll just say the timing of the singles, they could have done with being a bit closer together.

Favorite Video from the album - Sorry

Favorite perfomance from the era - I really have no idea. blush.gif

What do you like about this album

It is a great dance album, that sounds good when it is playing and only possesses one dud (Isaac)

What did you like the most about this era

Madonna coming back huge after being written off after the criminally underrated American Life album.

What did you dislike the most about this era

I think the album is rather lightweight. It lacks the depth that American Life has and will not pass the test of time as well as Like A Prayer or Ray Of Light has done, as musically I think it will date badly in 10 years time.

Favourite Video from the album

Hung Up

Favourite perfomance from the era

Hung Up @ the 2006 Grammy Awards
