Interested in seeing the results of this...

Which of Madonnaís two most recent studio albums do you prefer.

Rebel Heart or Madame X?

For me itís Madame X all the way. Itís much more consistent, flows better as an album, feels like it has a theme and also feels like Madonna herself genuinely likes and believes in the project too.

Rebel Heart has some LOWS! (Mainly, Body Shop, Holy Water). Although Rebel Heart in itself is an improvement on MDNA.

Rebel Heart.

Both albums are very far removed from her best albums.

Rebel Heart but I put both of them in the bottom end of her discographies.

80's, 90's and 00's all produced some amazing Madonna albums but the 10's were all average or naff (MDNA)

Madame x overall. I like 8/9 songs on rebel heart but lots I donít like. Madame x - the singles are weak but some great album tracks.

I think 00s Madonna was the best Madonna.

From True Blue she hit her mark for me.

Like Rihanna, her first two albums are quite patchy but from her third she started to smash and then the fourth era they really got it spot on.

Madame X by a long way, You can make a reasonable 10 track album from everything on Rebel Heart but it doesn't even begin to imagine the same level of sheer ambition that Madame X brought back to her discography.

Madame X as a solid body of work overall, but Rebel Heart has higher highs (with a selection of proper shockers peppered around them).

THIS!

Madame X is like something sheíd have released in the 90s / 00s.

Itís daring, different and ambitious and pushes boundaries in ways Rebel Heart didnít.

Real tough one! Rebel Heart has the tour to go with it which I loved and loads of songs I adore.. but it also has some shockers and low points. Madame X has less highs but also far less lows. I'm abstaining and voting later kink.gif

Voted Rebel Heart after much deliberation. I just can't deny the personal connection I have with it because of the tour!

I'm really surprised this has been such a tight result! I love both albums but Madame X is easily the better album for me. It has a strong direction and identity, the music is innovative, daring and exciting, and showed that Madonna could still absolutely boss it. The music videos were all fantastic, so powerful and detailed.

I really like Rebel Heart but Madame X is so much more of an exciting body of work in comparison. Rebel Heart as an era felt more eventful though, always something going on, and that makes it really special to look back on.

Still surprised by this tight result. If we were judging eras, it would make sense, but purely the album content then Madame X is much stronger.

Madame X is so much better in my opinion!

I think Iíd struggle more choosing between Rebel Heart and Hard Candy tbh.

Madame X is leagues ahead of the three albums what come before it and it felt so Madonna like too she changed her image, sound become this character. Itís such a shame that promo didnít go to plan like the tour and that era was kinda messy.
