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

5.0 out of 5 stars Fire 3 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
...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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blimey! 23 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Basics!! 30 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

Amazon sold this album from their good value Web audio downloads section for 79p, though I think it was part of their January sales in 2009. It's about time Amazon downloads were available to British people at home, thanks at last Amazon.

The downside is you have to Fast Forward / Rewind rather than picking tracks. Mmmm ... this was 79 pence for the whole album. Thank you Amazon. So if you're a miser or poor, or miserly for an album by Madonna, this is great value. Why not splash out with 79p and get the non-stop mix of Confessions on a Dancefloor from wonderful Amazon...?

This is a really strange album. I'm sure that's what was intended. 'Let's make a retro album to get them' - or 'double wonder retro' it's someone imagined from the retro world or 'a retro world' doing retro - 'to get them' - like those strange avant-garde artists who want to provoke a reaction of getting under your skin or something. Whilst also, you know, this piece of art disco music being a natural sort who just slowly crafts earthenware pots as a cottage industry in his backyard. It's worthy too, actually.

It is disco. Really obviously, with no identity concerns. It's certainly not house music, which some Madonna music can be a subset of. While it's modern club music as much as disco music, dance music based clubs (meaning 'non-mecca', or better, those living on the line in time which dated from rare groove and house in the 80s, sometimes called more underground clubs) aren't likely to play this much. 'Mecca' is an ancient British term for a popular dance venue, weekly fun location for many more dancers than any other dance venue type, and also an often hugely derided type of disco club. 'It just wasn't cool!'. And also, they just weren't cool at all, very frequently (that's me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like It Or Not....... 1 Oct 2005
By Mad Fan
Format:Audio CD
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!
