You can dance
So here's Madge with a dance release! I vaguely remember an awful attempt at club/dance music in the eighties by Madonna called "You can dance" - Yes maybe we can and probably we can't but I really can't imagine many folks swung their stuff to that album. But some 15 years or more on - she's got it right. Very catchy tunes all blended together and very polished production as you would expect. Influences of house , disco , trance and I'll say it again "catchy" tracks - instantly likeable album for singing & dancin' round the bedroom , lounge or dance floor. I'm not a big madonna fan but I do like dance music and this is a very good dance record. I would love a few more instrumental/dub sections to break up Madonna's vocals and perhaps a few more tempo drops would not go amiss. As a party record it's just great and this should do very well. I'm looking forward to the single mixes that will appear over the coming months - hopefully some thin white duke / sasha masterpieces will be gracing my decks. Overall Good 4/5 - Perhaps a little longer and more imagination on the sections that link the tracks and I would have given it a 5/5.

Madonna Back on Form!
Following the almost 'dismal' effort that is otherwise known as 'Music' i think this newest offering really shows Madonna at her finest - doing what she does best, pure dance music with the kind of vocals that only madonna can deliver.
I personally really enjoyed tracks 1 and 3 which are just superbly 'get up out of your chair and dance' - you'll be tapping your feet and singing along in no time (If you aren't already!)
Track 2 is again very nice, a little more mellow but funky all the same.
Track 10 is really unusual, i can almost detect some undertones of the Ray of light album, as i can in track 4.
Some of the tracks are edging on trance style synths and rhythms, very unique indeed. If you like Daft Punk, The Orb and good old funky beats then this is the album for you.
All in all - if you love Madonna, her attitude and her style, you'll surely love this!

Get yourself on the dancefloor!
I bought her album following 'Hung Up' hitting the charts. It's a BRILLIANT album. Good tunes and beats for listening to in the car, singing in the shower or just before you go out clubbing, it will get your feet tapping & sure to get you in the dancing mood! There are a couple of less catchy tunes, but we can't all be perfect! I can highly recommend this album to everybody! In truth, I don't like Madonna, but I do like most of her music & this is far better than her last 'Music' album. Very Disco influenced & catchy music! Definitely, top 5 in your CD collection!!!

What's next after house?
A fantastic album from a production point of voice, and effortlessly programmed to journey through the tracks, but it might be argued that the album is slightly dated. The typical and predictable 4/4 house beats, synths and house/disco samples. Suffice to say the big club hits including Hung Up, Get Together and Sorry are great, but give it a second, third and fourth listen and you might only be listening to the first few tracks before switching off again.
Overall rating, 4 out of 5, but it's not ground breaking.
