The Hit-Porduzenten have remained, however, the issues have changed.
Rebel Heart is the album of an artist who is concerned to a large extent. Whether the events in the world, whether the still lingering reservations women and minorities over or whether the crude conspiracy theories on the Internet. You couple this concern with the seemingly indestructible hope in the goodness of people in love. Here you will find the strongest tracks on the album.
The lead single Living For Love is a highlight in the Madonna indicating the permission of heartache, however, it does not want to be bitter. The track Devil Pray in which makes them aware that drugs, religion or other forms of ecstasy only offer short-term solutions for individual problems, and instead the interplay, the love of the keys to happiness are, is another highlight. This may sound obvious, but many people in our society seem to have forgotten this banality. Wash All Over Me is a song, their own helplessness whether certain events recognized in the Madonna in the world, Joan of Arc is a song that explains in the Madonna, how much they hurt falsehoods and Häme in the press. Together with Heartbreak City and Messiah, these tracks represent great ballads, a genre that has since Madonna American Life largely ignored. It was above all her ballads, in which she has left her mark in the past demonstrated. Rebel Heart, albeit not nearly as good as the demo version, is a great look back at your career, Addicted and Borrowed Time are on the special limited edition more than out of place, the tracks would have had to the standard version , Iconic and Hold Tight are solid pop songs, Ghost Town, finally, the second single, is a radio-friendly ballad, not Madonna's best, but one of their catchiest songs since the Music-ago 15 (!) Years. More than half of Rebel Heart belongs to the best material that the artist has written and recorded for over a decade.
Then there are tracks like Holy Water, Bitch, In Madonna, Unapologetic Bitch or Veni Vidi Vici, which clearly fall high compared to the rest. The biggest disappointment is the song SEX in which Madonna sings relatively striking about just sex, to an instrumentation that is so dreary and slow, is that you are far fallen asleep before the climax. There is a lot of swearing, and much thrown with the word Bitch around. For its critics is a godsend, Madonna honest, the youth, should finally be their age according to behavior or best completely disappear from the scene. If you listen to the tracks listed again under this background, then it is clear that here an artist is singing which does not want to be told what they have to do, when and how. And if she wants to take childish songs with ridiculous lyrics, then makes the flat. SEX still leaves a bad song, but the concept of the album goes on. Rebel Heart is just that, an album of an artist who her soft, romantic, vulnerable, thoughtful side shows as clearly as ever, and also makes it clear that they will not cease to accrue their critics and the limits of what is considered appropriate to exceed. This can be called chumming and helpless. However, if an artist like Madonna, to whose career not an artist, regardless of gender, will come, which the world needs to prove nothing, because it has all been proved, this step goes, then we all would do well simply to respect this.
Rebel Heart is musically and lyrically a 4 of 5 star album, the fifth star, there is the great design, the great packaging and the abundance of new music. Even if you do not like in 24 new songs 10, you still have more good new songs, as 2008 on Hard Candy were included.
