American Life was one of Madonna's more serious attempts and will probably never be accepted as it should. This though is an amazing album to add to your remix collection (Remixes seem to be the new trend these days). I wish like a few others that some of these remixed versions had made it onto the album instead of the cuts that appear. These remixes, most of them, rock. This is Madonna sounding like a true rocker, as if she's back in the 80s, mixed with the Madonna we came to know in Music.
There are some stand-outs that are praise worthy. "American Life" is definately edgier than the version that appeared on the first album. "Nobody Knows Me" is simply hands down the best thing that she's done on this album. Of course with this album there are two treats; the audio of her 2003 MTV VMA performance with Britney, Christina and Missy and an unreleased track from Bedtime Stories, Your Honesty. Perhaps not the best song but hey, it's still good. Madonna wouldn't have released a track she didn't see as having potential which this does. My favorite track is "Into the Hollywood Groove" which is an extended and remixed version of the whole Gap thing. It's a must hear.
In all, I think this is a must for any Madonna fan. No, it's not a new album really but it's a good remix cd to add to your collection.
Caution to all buyers!!
This is a fun, danceable cd--like most of Madonna's cd's.
