Underrated gem!

This is Madonna's unapreciated album but why?Maybe because is introspective and darker than the others of her dance/electronica period. But this is not bad. It is quite a stripped down album and some songs sound like rock or folk songs. These are very good pop tunes.Personal favourites Intervention, Nobody's knows me and Mother & Father both with great bassline.Also Nothing Fails up there with her best ballads and Easy Ride starting slow and bursting to some killer beats half way are brilliant.The only bad track is the So Stupid and American Life must be one of her most average singles.Ofcouse I got this album.Every Madonna fan should own this.


Beautiful songs, cool production, worth every penny. Buy the whole album, put on your headphones and get inspired. Madonna at her introspective best.


I LOVE this album!! I love madonna n this album is one that really stands out for me! Excellent songs, and the lyrics have so much meaning! I love american life, die another day, mother and father, nobody knows me, im so stupid, love profusion....and the rest but i love them most! xxx
