Finally given this a few listens on Spotify...

09 Living For Love
09 Devil Pray
10 Ghosttown
05 Unapologetic Bitch
07.5 Illuminati (I keep changing my opinions on this DURING a listen, it's a real odd one laugh.gif)
09 Bitch I'm Madonna
06 Hold On Tight
05 Joan Of Arc (not getting the love, I find it a bit boring but it's ok)
08 Iconic
03 HeartBreakCity
02 Body Shop
06 Holy Water
08 Inside Out
08 Wash All Over Me
05 Best Night
06.5 Veni Vidi Vici
02 S.E.X.
06 Messiah
07 Rebel Heart (the demo version is an easy 10 though!!)
07 Beautiful Scars
05 Borrowed Time
10 Addicted
06 Graffiti Heart

10 Queen
00 Autotune Baby


Sooooo much filler drama.gif But then that was always likely to be the case on an album this long!! Ghosttown is probably her best song in YEARS (I'd say since Hard Candy) and Addicted/Queen are amazing. What possessed her to not put the latter on the album properly when there's dirge like S.E.X. and Body Shop on there is beyond me sad.gif Also it's a shame that Rebel Heart changed so much, would be second behind Ghosttown for me otherwise. Wash All Over Me has definitely been improved though.

Also Autotune Baby must be her worst song ever. Wow.

I understand what you mean about 'Illuminati' - do you not like the name-check verse but like the "itís the Enlightenment that started it all" parts? That was pretty much my initial thoughts but I've grown to really like it all now. I think the meaning of the song is pretty good too.

There's something about 'Addicted' that makes me think it shouldn't be good but in fact it is really good. Not so much that I'm disappointed it wasn't on the main tracking list though.

Not happy about the lack of 'HeartBreakCity' love there but, apart from that, those are pretty reasonable scores! 'Holy Water' is my least faavourite but it's still kinda catchy (unfortunately created by Natalia Kills though dry.gif).

I think it's that the lyrics are largely really wtf, and the theme laugh.gif Musically it's quite good but I can still never quite be sure.

In one interview I read, she said something about how the "Illuminati" has been misinterpreted and is seen as a massive conspiracy etc. and she explained what it actually was. I can't really remember, nor can I find the article, but it made me see the song differently.

Due to the grandness of the album I can't even consider doing an individual track rank so I'll do the following instead; I honestly think there are only two fillers out of the whole twenty-five songs but I have listened to the album in full fourteen times since its release last Monday. laugh.gif

Great

Living For Love
Devil Pray
Ghosttown
Unapologetic Bitch
Illuminati (UNDERRATED.)
Hold Tight
Joan of Arc
Heartbreak City
Holy Water
Inside Out
Wash All Over Me
Veni Vidi Vici
Messiah
Rebel Heart
Queen
Addicted
Graffiti Heart

Good
Bitch I'm Madonna
Iconic
Body Shop
Best Night
Beautiful Scars
Borrowed Time

Average
S.E.X.
Autotune Baby

I think the album's largest problem is not the amount of tracks but the way in which the tracklist is structured; if the songs were shuffled around a bit it would make for a steadier and more coherent listen. However it is nonetheless absolutely stellar and many of the songs are about as good as anything she could do. Far, far better than the average Hard Candy and MDNA records.

EDiT: forgot about Queen. sleep.gif laugh.gif

Poor Autotune Baby. laugh.gif

Body Shop was such a WTF moment for me at first but I appreciate the world instruments, the production is great and I've grown to like how she uses her voice in the verses.

We can do although probably best to wait for the Madonna vs. Kylie Survivor Game to finish.
