MDNA by Madonna
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Interscope
Her Madgesty takes a stab at reclaiming her throne in an era of shivery smooth dance-pop that seems readymade for her. At times, MDNA labors to make that stab, shooting a bit too high to achieve badass status on "Gang Bang," and alternating between weirdly anachronistic teeny-bop confessionals and desperate housewives anthems. But mostly, this is a regal demonstration of superiority that effortlessly works in smoke machine beats, but also doesn't shy away from challenges, like the complicated "Love Spent" or the pretty "Falling Free," featuring some of her loveliest, most mature vocals.
