Confessions on a Dance Floor,
This review is from: Confessions on a Dance Floor (Audio CD)
Madonna's best work has always been designed for the dancefloor so it's no surprise that her latest, an album with an hour of unbroken dance grooves, is a success. This is what she's good at. She's rarely been a lyricist of note. And the lyrics here are often trite, especially on the otherwise fine, I Love New York. But what Madge does better than anyone is keep herself current. She's working with a top producer here, Stuart Price, and it's his work that helps push Madonna to the best pure dance record of her ouevre.
You have to admire, even if you don't like the woman. She continues to craft catchy tunes, Sorry and Hung Up. That said, the latter's single success must be down to that ABBA sample. Certainly more than that frightening video of Madonna in spandex.
The album can grow tiresome. Isaac manages to spice things up near the end with its sheer eerieness but at that stage the similar beats of the tracks have become weary. However, put it down as one of Madonna's better records.
