They're generally considered two of Madonna's least good albums, but which comes out on top when each corresponding track battles it out?

01. Candy Shop / Girl Gone Wild
02. 4 Minutes / Gang Bang
03. Give It 2 Me / I'm Addicted
04. Heartbeat / Turn Up the Radio
05. Miles Away / Give Me All Your Luvin'
06. She's Not Me / Some Girls
07. Incredible / Superstar
08. Beat Goes On / I Don't Give A
09. Dance 2Night / I'm a Sinner
10. Spanish Lesson / Love Spent
11. Devil Wouldn't Recognise You / Masterpiece
12. Voices / Falling Free

01. Candy Shop / Girl Gone Wild
02. 4 Minutes / Gang Bang
03. Give It 2 Me / I'm Addicted - the best songs on their respective albums, shame they are head to head here
04. Heartbeat / Turn Up the Radio
05. Miles Away / Give Me All Your Luvin'
06. She's Not Me / Some Girls
07. Incredible / Superstar - JESUS WEPT
08. Beat Goes On / I Don't Give A
09. Dance 2Night / I'm a Sinner
10. Spanish Lesson / Love Spent
11. Devil Wouldn't Recognise You / Masterpiece - really tough as these are the second best tracks on their respective albums, oops
12. Voices / Falling Free

EVEN STEVENS, which is about fair really. Hard Candy is the ''better'' album, in that it's not the sound of an artist who is SPENT as a creative and artistic force in the way MDNA is, though the latter does have a share of great songs, albeit entirely faceless ones. Hard Candy also features the worst song of her career up to this point, however, and even now it's still bottom 3.

5-7 in favour of MDNA. The hardest for me was deciding which track 8 I preferred - 'Beat Goes On' is one of my favourites from Hard Candy but I've really been liking 'I Don't Give A' upon my relistening of MDNA and ultimately it feels a lot more Madonna.

As John highlighted, it's quite coincidental to see similarities between songs when the tracking lists are side by side - the track 3s are largely considered the best; track 7s are among the very worst; the two songs most resembling ballads on each album being at the end.

One thing I've noticed is that her voice sounds so much more passionate on MDNA. The production on Hard Candy is instantly recognisable as that of Timbaland and Pharrell, which is usually considered one of the downsides, but it in fact kinda carries the album.
