There seems to be a criticism in the “media” about her use of or the lack of proper melodies on Madame X. Maybe they’re not karaoke songs but it’s almost a treat to her group of weirdo fans that appeals to people that dig similar, unconventional approaches to popular music. I also wonder if as a lot of the more catchier riffs aren’t in English may be part of their issue. They could be nicer about it though! It’s refreshing to not have the bulk of the reviews trash the album or her this time around, really (yet?). The live show should be pretty cool, I’m excited to see how she integrates or alludes to her other songs.

Interesting observation. The last 3 albums have definitely been catchy and 'poppy' and she was accused of chasing trends and 'trying to be young'. On this album, she's gone deeper and has substance over melody or catchiness... she can't win!

Everybody knows the damn truth
Our nation lied, we lost respect
When we wake up, what can we do?
Get the kids ready, take them to school
Everybody knows they don’t have a chance
To get a decent job, to have a normal life
When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh
They pretend to help, it makes me laugh
I think I understand why people get a gun
I think I understand why we all give up
Every day they have a kind of victory
Blood of innocence, spread everywhere
They say that we need love
But we need more than this

We lost God control
We lost God control
We lost God control
We lost God control

This is your wake-up call
I’m like your nightmare
I’m here to start your day
This is your wake-up call
We don’t have to fall
A new democracy
God and pornography
A new democracy

People think that I’m insane
The only gun is in my brain
Each new birth, it gives me hope
That’s why I don’t smoke that dope
Insane people think I am
Brain inside my only friend
Hope it gives me birth each new
That dope I don’t smoke it’s true

Everybody knows the damn truth
Everybody knows the damn truth (wake up)
We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
It’s a hustle, yeah
It’s a hustle
It’s a con
It’s a hustle
It’s a weird kind of energy, a bizarre thing that happens to be
An abnormal fraternity, and I feel more than sympathy
We got to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

People think that I’m insane
The only gun is in my brain
Each new birth, it gives me hope
That’s why I don’t smoke that dope
Insane people think I am
Brain inside my only friend
Hope it gives me birth each new
That dope I don’t smoke it’s true

Everybody knows the damn truth
Everybody knows the damn truth
We got to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
(Wake up)
Ah (Ah), Ah (Ah)

A new democracy!

Everybody knows the damn truth
Our nation lied, we’ve lost respect
When we wake up, what can we do
Get the kids ready, take them to school
Everybody knows they don’t have a chance
Get a decent job, have a normal life
When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh
They pretend to help, it makes me laugh

We lost God control
We lost God control
We lost God control

Wow saved my Sunday night for my first listen of this album. It’s so creative. I’m loving it so much. It’s amazing. Wow. It’s so layered. The arrangements are incredible.

There is an excellent new interview in MOJO.Madonna explains why her vocals at the beginning of "God Control" are so strange....

"I wanted to sing as if someone had wired my jaw shut and I wasn't allowed to speak but I had to speak and I was coming from a very angry place".

Thank you so much for that post, I was wondering why it sounded odd and it was my only criticism of the whole album and I felt the vocals at the start spoilt the song, but now I understand why it was deliberately recorded that way, it makes sense. Such an amazing album !!

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

One thing I forgot to add - I brought the Deluxe version with "the book" as I wanted the 3 bonus tracks - but for $48 Aussie Dollars - it sure was expensive for what you got and I nearly feel off my chair when I took delivery of it. The "book" is only a CD Jewel Case size, the photos are not that great in it and the middle of the " book" has staples in the middle of her face!! It is not really a book at all. The CDs are housed in either ends of the "book" in a cardboard slot, which means that they can get scratched getting them in and out (and of course being cardboard can tear). I have removed the CDs and put in a double CD Jewel Case to protect them from damage. The Deluxe is not worth paying the extra money for if you are wanting the book - and I think the 3 bonus tracks were right to be left off the main album (as they are more dance tracks in comparison) but the album itself is fantastic - just I did feel the Deluxe was overpriced and it left me feeling a little exploited by the Music Company to pay so much more for so little in return. I know nobody made me buy it, but when you read the description online it did say "book" - this is more like a booklet that would normally be included with a jewel case in the "old days" I think? But the album content itself is astounding, even if the Deluxe Packaging is a let down.

Well deserved.

btw,isn’t it shocking that ROL was kept out of the number one spot by the ‘Titanic’ movie soundtrack?! smile

Titanic soundtrack was huge that time, but she got a bunch of number one albums in the 00s, her creative period I like to call it

I finally found the three bonus tracks from the 2-CD set, including the song that mentions Prince a couple of times. He's the last words of the song, actually. All three tracks are good.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

me too, I brought for the 3 bonus tracks - but still they work out at $10 Aussie dollars per track - it was a big jump in price from the standard to the deluxe that is for sure. But the album is an incredible piece of creative art, I am loving it.
