Madame X, with certain stuff, is ambitious and superior to Like a Virgin. I even used to place MDNA above LAV. The thing is, MDNA had some very embarrassing songs for someone like Madonna. Perhaps, if she made Superstar in the 80s, it wouldn't have been a big deal, but it was in 2012. As a whole, LAV flows better than MDNA. When it comes to Madame X, I am simply not that much into it. The ranking is subjective.
