Madonna's 'Madame X' is underrated


Recommended Posts

Why was Madonna's Madame X so underrated and not a commercial success?

The way the album was received reminded me of American Life which was one of her best albums  and ahead of its time with its message and topics it dealt with.

Madame X was as well one of Madonna most ambitious albums music wise , creativity wise and even the music videos.

"Dark Ballet" reminded me of the "Like A Prayer" video and song.

So why was Madame X overlooked? 

Does Madonna's age have to do with it? Is she expected to fail and go away and never do music again?

70 on Metacritic is good. Especially compared to "American Life".  She's been in the industry for almost 40 years. I think you're expecting too much in terms of commercial success. Besides, she's stil

Besides, she's still a big touring force. It's just that no one cares about her new music besides fans, but that's completely normal. :idkney:

commercially dont have expectations but among her fans wasn't received very well as usually her albums do . even American life which wasn't commercially successful was loved by her fans.

The album is good and very global music wise, but I don't think it's up to the standards of Ray of Light, American Life, Music. 

The best tracks are: God Control, ***** I'm Loca, I Don't Search I Find and Ciao Bella.

The best lyric from the entire album: Quiero ser tu perra, también tu bebecita (I wanna be your *****, your little baby too). :madance:

Yeah, it's very ambitious, eclectic and creative in terms of production and styles. And the subjects treated on the album are not quite common. There is something for almost everyone. 

Love the comparative between Nelly Furtado and Bjork. :makeitrain:

the problem is that she always choose the worse and most stupid song of the album for the first single in the attempt to like to young listeners. and it's so absurd because nobody wants stupid songs from her. God control deserved to be the first single. 

agree her maluma single wasnt the best choice

Maybe people weren't ready for such a kind of release. Maybe people were expecting something more between the lines of Ray Of Light and Confessions On A Dance Floor. 

As long as she does not want to recreate Rebel Heart, we're all good. :jj:
