Madonna: Sticky and Sweet Tour
Dang, Madonna does sure know how to throw a party live, huh? Culled from her most recent tour, this album does include plenty of new tracks from Hard Candy (including "Beat Goes On," featuring a guest shot from Kanye West). But she also includes plenty of classics and fan favorites, reminding us that, among all the many identities she tries on, Madonna is also an inveterate crowd-pleaser. She sounds pretty good, too, if a bit anesthetized and overly polished.
