  1. I still would have loved if the art was more in line with the shoot she did for Interview, using the deluxe cover we already have of course:

  2. Sort of fits the eclectic album itself though!

    I adored all the photoshoots for magazines etc that era (my 2016 calendar was so good) but I think they're a bit too cold for the album. (the ones @mindtrappa posted at least)
  3. This shoot is incredible. This one in particular gives me PCMusicdonna a bit:

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  7. The image of the nail through her hand would be a pretty great industrial/noise album cover.

  8. 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.)

  9. The changes to Addicted were annoying, but the song is not that great in any form, so whatever. It's too noisy and the lyrics are pretty bad.

  10. I'm sure I've heard an Erotica/Closer by Nine Inch Nails bootleg somewhere in the recesses of YouTube.

    There’s also a cover album of her by Sonic Youth which isn’t as miserable as it sounds on paper.

  13. I have this album, I love that Sonic Youth were obsessed with her back then, they used to play her songs through their amps when retuning their guitars between songs.

  14. It's good, though very Kiss Me Once.

  15. I'm going to give it another listen too, though I'm not sure I call it a masterpiece.
  16. Freedom >>>

  17. Both!
  18. Oh c’mon don’t be daft, they’re both terrible!.......but can I just say that Freedom ‘15 is miles better than Freedom ‘94.
  19. I wish she’d got Mert & Marcus to double up this shoot as a video for Devil Pray (should’a bin a single).
  20. Yeah none of the demos aside from "Queen" had any business on the final record.
