Biography

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

Product Description

Product Description

Destined to be one of the records of the year, Confessions On A Dance Floor is the eagerly anticipated new album from Madonna. Effortlessly addictive and relentlessly energetic, Madonna reinvents dance music once again with 12 stunning new tracks under the realm of ‘future disco’ – all seamlessly segued in a classic dance club format.

Recorded in London, Confessions On A Dance Floor was primarily written and produced by Madonna and Stuart Price - the British musical director behind 2002’s "Drowned World" and last summer’s "Reinvention" tour.

While Madonna’s music is often both ethereal and political, Confessions On A Dance Floor is sheer, absolute discotheque. "I want people to jump out of their seats," she says. "My record is about having a good time straight through and non-stop."

"This is music that just comes very naturally to her," says Grammy Award-winning Price. "The songs flowed very quickly. Madonna was very interested in capturing the moment because, when all is said and done, it’s that instinctive joy of rhythm and movement that comes across best on the dance floor." Madonna and Stuart Price co-produced the album together with contributions from Henrik Jonback and the Grammy Award-winning team Bloodshy & Avant. Mirwais Ahmadzai, who produced Madonna’s last two albums American Life and Music, has co-written two new songs and co-produced one track. Other collaborators include Anders Bagge and Peer Astrom of the Murlyn Music Collective and Jo Henry whose previous credits include "Don’t Tell Me".

BBC Review

You probably already know the first single "Hung Up". The album is in a similar vein; full-on dance, dark, disco, fun, big. At first it's a shock: where is the re-born English Lady? It's been an age since we listened to this kind of Madonna. Think "Vogue", "Deeper & Deeper" and "Ray of Light", instead of "Don't Tell Me" or "Nothing Fails".

The album's closest relative in its overall sound is Erotica, during its Shep Pettibone produced club driven moments. It's also destined to be loved way more than 2003's chilly American Life, an all-time sales low for Madonna. Highlights here include the lethally catchy "Sorry", "Jump", "How High", "Push", and "Like it Or Not". The word 'dork' in I "Love New York" is awkward, and "Isaac" is Shanti, 2005-style. However, this is the most commercial album Madonna has made in 15 years and it's magic. --Alan Braidwood

...that's the best word I can find to describe Madonna's futuristic techno-dance effort. It's one of those albums that I live for discovering. Confessions on a Dance Floor is its own little musical universe, where the music flows through you like fire and each song connects so seamlessly to the other that I forget that I'm listening to songs at all. With tempestuous melodies, sounds and beats, this high-charged, all-enveloping musical experience is in my opinion one of Madonna's most recognisable and breathtaking works; an unforgettable sonic journey. Were fire made into music, it would sound something like this.

Madonna and Stuart Price made something truly magical come to life here. Listening to this album for the first time challenged my notion to what an album is supposed to be. Confessions on a Dance Floor is as close as I have dared hope for an album to become something truly spectacular as a whole. Just try to separate the song order, or to insert a silence - you can't do it. The whole album would fall apart. It's all produced as a whole, and this gives the album added character. The sleeve is the perfect hint at the beauty and passion of the music it adorns. The art direction was great.

The music is fantastic. It's electrical and riveting, full of energy and zest, and I don't just mean in the catchy department. This is thoughtful and moving music in its own right; it's music you actually would like to hear pop up on a dance playlist, something you look forward to hearing. The album's hits need no introduction. Check out Stuart Price's version of Cornershop's "Sleep on the Left Side" to see what he's capable of doing with already existing material. "Hung Up" will make even more sense then, and the extended version on the album is far better than the truncated radio edit.

I have never been a huge fan of Madonna, take her or leave her to be honest. OK so Vogue & Like a prayer re-kindle fond memories from my childhood but that is about it. As for her recent albums, Ray of Light and American Life almost missed my radar completely!
But Confessions on a Dancefloor has left me a little gobsmacked. Madonna has returned to what she always did best (even if I hadn't noticed until now!), disco. And not just your bog standard "down the local club on a friday night" kinda stuff, but original & catchy songs that keep on coming. Forbidden Love is not to dissimilar to some of Air's songs, hints of the Petshop Boys can be heard in "Jump", and is that a Donna Summer sample in "Future Lovers"?
Highly Reccomended.

Madonna's latest LP once again proves her critics wrong; yes it's lyrically shallow, yes it's never going to be called a classic by the music press, but this collection of hi-energy dance tunes is a salutary lesson to those young pretenders out to steal Madge's crown as Queen of pop - there's life in the controversial old dog yet (no offence Guy). Ray of Light was a thoughtful move into a more contemporary sound, and to my mind remains Madonna's best album to date, however 'Confessions...' runs it a close second, with the ABBA sampling belter 'Hung Up' and the Pet Shop Boys produced 'Sorry' arguably its highlights. The whole CD though is top-notch, and although she may be nearing fifty, Madonna remains the only artist who can reach middle-age and still pull off THAT leotard.

Most people here have been slagging this album - why? This is what she does best. A solid slab of 80's disco, beautifully produced, infinately listenable.
She's revisted her roots and sliced some Kabala in here too. Great album, deserves to number one for at least 3 months, or until everyone has bought it.
BTW, I am not a hardcore Madonna fan.

Lets get one thing straight, Madonna is officially the biggest selling female artist of all time, more than deserved too. People who write in with pithy biased reviews of her albums are either insane, jealous, blind or down right rude! Confessions sales and popularity around the globe speak volumes, simply put the fans (Who matter most) Love it, as i type copies are still flying off the shelves in Europe, Asia and the US where last week 219,000 copies were sold thats almost 14 months post its release! Globally its sales have now surpassed the 9 million mark and are steadily rising. This album is in most peoples opinion the best of her career, heart and soul have been put into the tracks which themselves have broken countless debut and sales records globally, credit must also go to her remixers and producers such as monte pittman and stuart price, whithout them Confessions would have been bereft of any vitality or life. As for the music i am of the opinion that Madonna lived though and experienced the 80's electro dance culture first hand, she was there, many say she inspired the dance move herself with tracks such as Eveybody, Burning Up, Lucky Star, Holiday and Physical Attraction. However you choose to view her influences on dance music its fair to say wherever theres a disco you can be sure somewhere there will be a Madonna classic thumping in the background, encouraging the disco dollies to throw caution to the wind, take one day out of life and dance and sing, get up and do your thing. Confessions brings Madonna right back to the dancefloor that she so righteously owned throughout the 80's and 90's, harking back to the days when lace, neon, bangles and hairspray were the attire of the day or night depending on what time you preferred to dance!Read more ›
