    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    Ready to be devastated with whichever album is sent to the guillotine next - but hoping it isn’t time to kick out the debut juuust yet. Bedtime Stories & Music are stronger albums/have brighter highlights… but there’s something so immediate and charming about ‘Madonna’, I go back to it more...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    Happy to help out with whatever is needed! Just say the word. Hope your schedule & health stuff eases up soon, and a huge thanks for all the excellent work done on this so far - it’s been a gift. The write ups, the artwork… I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say it’s all been really...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    For me, playing this album always comes with a slightly sour taste. I was one of the greedy goblin heathens that consumed as many leaked demos as I could find as they were popping up, and whilst it was exhilarating at the time hearing all the differences & edits between mp3 files… I fear that...

    Madonna - 15th Album

    Oohh this is interesting as Madame X is one I’ve never thought to have a fiddle with - what does your re-sequenced track list look like? I think how it got delivered to us flows brilliantly as is, but I do occasionally resent how heavy the first half can be straight after Medellin ends and...

    Madonna

    Very exciting news, but these songs don’t seem to include the same “- 2024 Remaster” wording that the very recent Material Girl release did? Argh, questions! Soooo was that prior release a ‘separate/special’ upload compared to this one, orrr are they just getting messier with the labelling of...

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    Erotica girlies blessed with torsos and shoulders, get ready to have a meltdown with me. These were apparently “exclusively” sold during the MSG shows. The way I am SOBBING rn at there actually being official merch celebrating the song Waiting (?!!) and yet there’s no way for mom to fleece me...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    Even in the most filler non-single tracks you can sense there’s that quintessential Madonna magic brewing (and occasionally bubbling over) beneath the surface of bubblegum and pearls. A huge shame such a legendary album has gone so soon, but a further testament to the quality of her career. I...

    Madonna

    Just had a quick pre-bedtime listen on my headphones, wow, the new Pretender remaster sounds great?? Not overly fiddled with, it’s just as you remember it but now it’s more dynamic, there’s all this newfound space and separation between the layers (me, acting like I know anything technical about...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    In addition to the above, another album outtake I really enjoy and think should have bumped Incredible or Spanish Lesson off of the main album’s tracklist is this one. Far too much Justin on it of course, but aside from having the spotlight hogged by annoying boys (as with pretty much every Hard...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    I think it’s fair to say “MDNA is likely her worst album” in the same breath as “there’s a fair amount of exciting moments & glimpses of excellence hidden in MDNA”, and that dichotomy is so captivating to me? It’s not often a great album to listen to, but it’s a great album to think about and...

    The Celebration Rate: Four Decades Of Music - The Madonna Album Rate

    I sent my scores in earlier, the stress of fiddling with numbers / changing favourites around was getting to be too much. I think my lowest score was a 6.75 and even that album would be a highlight contender in any other great artist’s discography. It simply cannot be overstated: MOTHER.

    Madonna

    This has taken 5 years off of my lifespan. Already in a rage at my own choices. Just five votes?! The BBC is sick for this.

    Madonna

    A random thought whilst catching up on the posts about her movie career (and I’m sure it’s already been discussed before, apologies if recently) - was there ever any fun stories or an acknowledgment from either of them about how rightfully cockhungry and nuts M was around Antonio Banderas in...

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    I finally got my poster from the third London date framed & up on the wall the other day, am so glad I ran back to the merch bar for one just before the show began. A reminder of an incredible night (and woman, career, etc). Haven’t stopped listening to her back catalogue since. Wishing I could...

    Sky Ferreira - "Don't Forget" + General Discussion

    Secured the tickets! It’s a good job she’s playing at The Marble Factory because i am absolutely going to lose mine during the show and can easily grab some new ones whilst i’m there, gorg.

    Sky Ferreira - "Don't Forget" + General Discussion

    Standing in front of Sky whilst she’s performing, whilst not singing along with her & doing your best to pretend you haven’t heard any of these newer songs before? That’s Masochism.

    Sky Ferreira - "Don't Forget" + General Discussion

    … a proper U.K. tour?! Wow, this seems vaguely hopeful that things are happening again for her! And if this actually goes ahead & is accompanied by some new songs/Guardian I am going to be insufferable. Truly annoying. My friends and family are on the brink as it is.

    Halle Bailey - "Angel" + Debut Album

    It’s probably a mix of being overly cautious as The Little Mermaid has made her an idol to a lot of young fans, and also as an attempt at a ‘I am not my sister’ statement, surely? After seeing Chloe get some ridicule for leaning too hard into that forced-sexy energy, I can imagine Halle choosing...
