I do sorta agree with the fact that disc 1 doesn't fully commit to the remix 'theme' but the rest of the review reads like someone who just doesn't like club mixes or any sort of dance music.
Also.. no recollection of Me Against The Music???
 
A frankly gross and missinformed review from SDE. The Comeback Coroner!

"This immediately creates a bit of friction. Is this compilation about great mixes, or great songs?"

The Sasha Ultra Violet Mix of ‘Ray of Light’ sounds like the kind of music that hostile military forces play when they are trying to break the spirit of the captured enemy. ‘Nothing Really Matters’ starts well but turns into an exercise in ‘boom-tish’ tedium. The Calderone Radio Mix of ‘Beautiful Stranger’ was surely never played on any radio and the Richard ‘Humpty’ Vission Radio Mix of ‘American Pie’ is something that all the King’s horses and all the King’s men couldn’t save. The Deep Dish Dot Com Radio Edit of ‘Music’ has a name that had my finger hovering over the ‘skip’ button, but it’s actually rather good and offers some respite mid-CD, but Thunderpuss Video Remix of ‘Don’t Tell Me’ is truly awful. The Above And Beyond Club Radio Mix of ‘What It Feels Like For A Girl’ is supposed to be a remix classic; it probably sounded good in Ibiza. And so it continues.

Wow, that's a lot of words that tell me this guy doesn't know anything about or even understand dance music. Completely out of his depth as a reviewer.

I bet the person who read this didn’t even listen. It doesn’t actually review the music but regurgitates what the reviewer thinks to be witty lines.
 
He's a straight, white, middle aged fan of 'proper music' what did you guys expect dd. And he probably saves good reviews for projects he profits from which didn't happen here so...
Yeah he’s been pretty clear that he doesn’t like house music, and that Now 8 was the last good Now compilation before House music became a thing, so I really don’t know why he thought he’d enjoy a compilation based on club mixes.
His readers can’t get their head around the concept, so many comments like “she’s neglected the 80s! I’m not buying!” It’s quite embarrassing.
 
Didn't he straight up refuse to review Madame X for some dumbass reason?
He refused to do a post regarding the Madame X formats because he didn’t like Medellin, which he eventually did post because fans and readers complained and called him out, he then did a complete 180 a year later because he went to see the Madame X tour and realised he actually enjoyed the album, and did a positive write up on the show.
He’s one big walking contradiction.

I remember that nonsense lolol. IMAGINE not thinking this is the greatest comp of all time:

I go back on forth on the 7” Like A Prayer mix but I do love how overtly Prince it is, especially as it closes out. Total late 80s Batman era Prince vibes. Where his contributions to the main album (and the most well known versions of the title track) aren’t maybe as obvious, he leaves his mark here.
 
Is it the toe picture or the album cover?
Any further news on the Erotica 12" picture disc? I have not seen it pop up on any other sites for pre-order...


The original is the toe picture and that’s what I want!
Anyway, no news yet it was removed from the website but they will announce something new around the Everybody release (so late September/Early October). They guy from MadonnaAustralia said they already have the next 18 months planned.

It's always crazy to me how nowadays you have Clean Bandit ft Cher & Whitney Houston (Omero Mumba Remix when in the 80s collabs were seen as a weak move and something to be hidden.
