Ghosttown is still that smash hit that never was isn't it.

What a song what a video what a moment.

One of the few reasons I ever go back to (the final version of) Rebel Heart. It's up there with her best ballads for me.
 
The Super Deluxe is the only Rebel Heart cover for me. Grey one is dull, white and red is ridiculous to even consider using (cute as an interior bonus I guess) and Red and Black fits the feel a whole lot better for me - especially given the album booklet photography?

True fans get the true cover. Duh.


I'll never rate any product that has something written with a font that looks like it's a tattoo on the artists' body. Just no.
 
The super deluxe cover just feels... like a stock Madonna photo. Like, I could throw a stone into the Internet and hit five other, better photos of Madonna in fetish gear. It doesn't even feel particularly relevant to the album. The deluxe cover is easily the best; serving relevant concept, and providing a striking image all on its own.

In fact, the album photoshoot in general is just bizarre. Going from posing in mom sweaters to S&M gear to armour.
 
I think they made the right decision with the deluxe black and white shot. It's the most "album cover" of the collection, although I love many of the images, particularly the Joan of Arc styling. The fist gripping the bleeding heart might have been striking if she didn't wanna go for a portrait.

I use this as the artwork for Rebel Heart in iTunes, I found it online somewhere. Have no idea if this image is at all related to the album campaign or the album photoshoot sessions; but somehow, it's able to accomplish the Rebel Heart theme better than the official artwork, at least for me.

It is. She posted it on Instagram in early 2015.

I’ve been relistening to the demos tonight and I can confirm it all still bangs.

I only wish she’d not changed some songs, like the ABBA type harmonies in Addicted for example - they felt changed for change sake, since she said everything was early demos/not to be used when the mass leak happened. I think she tampered with some things too much. But I digress. If they hadn’t leaked we’d know no different, and now we have eighteen versions of everything to choose our favourite from, so everyone won.

(Also, Revolution absolutely deserved a spot on the final track list.)
