Product Description


Apparently there's nothing in Kabbalah that disallows sweaty, head-spinningly good dance music, because here comes a flame-haired Madonna hawking a dozen songs' worth: Confessions on a Dance Floor darts seamlessly from Madge's early days, when she emerged as the genre's enduring darling, through the political, kiddie, and acoustic pap that drove a wedge between her and early adopters of the fingerless glove look. Songs like the pop-leaning "Jump" and first single "Hung Up"--an adrenaline drip on high that, like many of these tracks, will inspire mild shame among those who've thrilled to the much thinner disco-dusted outpourings of younger divas recently--represent both a return to form and an unmistakable march into the future. "Get Together" is a sonic freak-out in the best sense; "Push" traffics in gut-level futuristic trance; and "Forbidden Love" loops in '80s blips and bleeps for a follow-me-into-the-past effect that's both neo and retro. For all the image-affirming innovations here, though, these confessions find Madonna framed in her share of reflective moments too. "Was it all worth it/How did I earn it?" she asks on "How High," a song featuring vocoder. "Nobody's perfect/I guess I deserve it," comes the answer. A later lyrical inquiry is left for the listener to judge: "Does this get any better?" Madonna wants to know. But that opens the door to a dizzying proposition. Few of us would have guessed, after all, that it got this good. --Tammy La Gorce

4.0 out of 5 stars madonna is BACK March 10 2006
Format:Audio CD
i have one thing to say about "confessions on a dance floor":
ITS F***ING AMAZING! she's done it again with her catchy pop tunes and evolving her sound to fit the new millenium.
I wasn't really impressed with much of Madonna's music lately, her last few albums weren't that great, with the exception of a few songs. Songs like "Frozen" and "Music", but most of her stuff lately had been...bland. My mom is a big madonna fan so this is how i know all this. I thought that she was finished now.
But now she comes back with this awesome album. Almost all the tracks run into each other so its like one long song. People who say madonna needs to "grow up", they obviously havent heard her stuff when she first came out in the 80's. Although no madonna album comes close to her early works, this album definitely shows that she HAS grown up...in fact i think every album since her debut, "madonna" she's matured more and more...so i dont know that those people are talking about that she needs to grow up.
All in all, i think this is the best Madonna album since "Like a Prayer".

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and uplifting Dec 30 2005
Format:Audio CD
Madonna has managed to pick up on the mild reception of "American Life" album, and moved on to the next chapter in her lengthy musical career in the blink of an eye. On "Confessions on a dancefloor", the reigning queen of pop music claims back her title as the most entertaining female artist ever, one whose musical evolution is always interesting to listen to.
As everyone knows by now, this album is a dancefloor affair, bottom line. No introspective lyrics, no ballads, just straight-forward dance music. That can be good and bad as well, depending on your perspective. The album pounds out one flawless disco tune after another, supported by a impeccable production and some of the lady's catchiest choruses ever, resulting in one fantastic string of potential singles. Songs like "Jump" (her catchiest song in ages), "Sorry", "Future Lovers" and "I Love New York" are all begging for massive airplay, while "Forbidden Love" gracefully flows with hints of influences from the likes of Pet Shop Boys and New Order.
On the downside, of course this album fares less spectacularly once you actually try to sit down and listen to it attentively. People who are not heavily into dance music may feel the album gets a little monotoneous - the last four songs find Madonna running out of ideas, and you find yourself wishing she'd come up with, say, ten great songs instead of the twelve tunes presented here. Even the beats start to lose their pulse and their appeal by the time the album approaches its end, and the entire affair has pretty much slowed down by the time the last song clicks in. Still, die-hard fans of Madonna will gleefully welcome back an unbreakable artist who has never really been away ever since her first major hit ("Holiday" in 1983) - while the rest of pop music lovers will likely make up their own mind over the next few months, since this album is loaded with potential hits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dance-a-licious! Nov. 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
Madonna is back to her roots on her tenth studio album, "Confessions on a Dance Floor". The first track, "Hung Up", samples ABBA's "Gimmie!, Gimmie!, Gimmie!" and has so many layers of sound that it is a unique and wonderful listening experience, revealing new depths after each listen. The next track, "Get Together" is even better and arguably the best single on the album.... I can't wait to hear it the next time I'm on a dancefloor! "Sorry" is catchy but can get tiresome in a "Material Girl" sort of way... but overall is a pretty good track.
"Future Lovers" has a sexy hook but some of lyrics are not the most inspired... surprising since Madge is usually better than this effort... even worse is the laughable "I Love New York"... with such banal lyrics like "Other cities make me feel like a dork"??? Come on... there wasn't a better rhyme with York than dork?
If you have patience through I(Heart)NY and the next couple of so-so tracks, you will be rewarded with "Jump", which is brilliant pop/dance at its best. "How High" is also exceptional and shows a more mature Madonna looking back on her remarkable past 20+ career and wondering "will any of this matter?"
"Isaac" is another track in the vein of "Frozen" that has a mystical/spiritual feel, but isn't as successful... still, it's not a bad song.
The last two songs are somewhat forgetable, but overall the album has at least five or six excellent songs and is well worth buying. Check it out... esp. "Get Together".

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop's empress' grand return Nov. 19 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to pop music and Madonna in one room together, you could do no wrong.
Over the period of nearly 25 years, Madonna has crafted some of pop music's greatest gems. Selling over 200 million albums and Amazon's top seller for nearly 2 months before the record release to boot. It's a little tough arguing with those figures. You can't sell as much as Madonna has by having only a core fanbase. Madonna is genius of appealing to the public.
Of course this includes working with great talent. But not in the typical form of some rapper (Mariah and Gwen anyone???)
This time hand in hand with dj Stuart Price, Madonna takes a turn to her past songwriting methods with catchy melody and hooks. Madonna may have become "artiste" on us over the years which puts many listeners off. Coming back to form would mean facing what one is really gifted at. And pop music is what Madonna does best and with this album she means business.
Together Madonna and Stuart move dance music forward giving a darker and futuristic vibe to it, making it less colorful and chirpy as what is normally detected in dance music.
The lyrics are nothing to brag about but the genius of Madonna is that she knows that good dance music doesn't make one ponder in the middle of a dance. It doesn't mean that the lyrics are senseless, just not complex. After all who needs a science experiment on a dancefloor. She never tried to be Bob Dylan so why critisize her for it now? We bashed her enough for the seriousness behind American Life, let's not get hypocritical.
Hung Up the lead single is Madonna's new worldwide smash. Her 11th UK number one and crawling towards the top ten on the American Hot 100 in a youth/hip-hop dominated market is not too shabby for a 47 year old mother of 2.

The songs on this CD are about rhythm and thump. There are many unique sounds in this CD. The treble can be a little irritating at times the normal person wouldn't care.
