The album would be titled Music and would again offer the sound of the future and continued in a vaguely similar format to Ray Of Light. Madonna worked with a multiple number of producers on this project which included William Orbit (who also co-produced Ray Of Light), Mirwais Ahmadzai, Guy Sioworth and Mark "Spike" Stent. Music, offered another set of a diverse range of tracks that were both adventurous and compelling which has always been the genius of Madonna as she still never ceases to amaze and surprise. Madonna has always had that uncanny ability to be experimental and creative and still always come out on top.
The title track, Music is a monster dance-floor filler. Containing a swirling electronic pop-funk vibe, Madonnas playful delivery gives startling ignition to this slick offering that caught onto the public like a magnet. Unsurprisingly and very deservedly, Music became a cross-Atlantic chart-topper.
Impressive Instant is another startling and mesmerising tune with its strikingly synthesised effects and driving grooves. Would have made a perfect choice for release as a single as this would undoubtedly have been another monster hit.
Runaway Lover, is a mid-tempo dance number that contains another series of bizarre, synchronised sounds thats still vastly origanal and highly inventive with its unique musical arrangements. Actually Runaway Lover does admitedly sound like a left-over track from Ray Of Light, but still is utterly impressive.Read more ›
1. Music - The No.1 single is one of the highlights. An electro funk tune with echoes of underground dance music. 2. Impressive Instant - Well produced slice of dance pop with catchy hook and lyrics (the memorable "I like to singy singy singy like a bird on a wingy wingy wingy"). 3. Runaway Lover - Should be the next single, a William Orbit track not too disimilar from Ray Of Light but better! 4. I Deserve It - Dedicated to hubby Guy Ritchie, this wonderful ballad sees Madge accompanied by acoustic guitar. Perfect! 5. Amazing - Similar to Beautiful Stranger, this 60s influenced slice of upbeat pop isn't one of the strongest tracks but could end up a party fave. 6. Nobody's Perfect - Yet another highlight. The vocoder is used to full effect, while the production is wonderful. Quality! 7. Don't Tell Me - Funky mid-tempo track, a bit more chilled out. 8. What It Feels Like For A Girl - Rumour has it this is going to be the next single but it's probably my least fave song on here. Not terrible, though, but nothing new and a bit bland... 9. Paradise (Not For Me) - An epic six minute musical highpoint where Madge tells us she can't remember when she was young. The string arrangement is beautiful and the end result is very spooky! 10. Gone - A fine track with a memorable first line - "Selling out is just not my thing". It certainly isn't... 11. American Pie - Cheeky but class! The No.1 cover ends things nicely...
Madonna and her creative-not to mention personal-trajectory has led us to this place in 'Music"-her eighth studio release-where the icon comes full-circle relying often on the precepts of her earlier work to chart a course through this most understated, post-modern, minimalist, and intimately candid work of her career that at the same time will prove most challenging to her fans who will see Mo in a new 'light'.
No other Madonna album so aptly follows its predecessor as "Music" does on the heels of "Ray of Light". The critically acclaimed '98 set was itself stylistically a giant leap from '94's "Bedtime Stories", the set on which Madonna began to once again delve into contemporary electronica-on tracks "Sanctuary" and "Bedtime Story". Seldom had so intimate a portrait of the artist been delivered until "Inside of Me"; though direct and unabashedly simple, it was itself a milestone track in that it merged her old-school simplicity with current trends in electronica.
Not since the eponompusly titled debut, had she come across so uncomplicated and sincere. In terms of musical direction, however, Madonna has always been the chameleon. Though on some level, there was a always a logical progression from one release to the subsequent one sonically, there was never a clearly definitive "Madonna" sound that carried from one Madonna album to the next-the matters that make the artist's work more profound and legendary.Read more ›
