article imageReview: Madonna back with compelling new album 'Rebel Heart' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 14, 2015 in Music
Pop superstar Madonna is back with her brand new album, "Rebel Heart," which features her soaring single "Living for Love."
The pop queen co-wrote all of the songs on the collection, and she co-produced the project with such acclaimed musicians and producers as Diplo, Avicii and Kanye West.
Her CD was released on Interscope Records and it opens with "Living For Love."
It is followed by the laid-back "Dirty Pray," which is easy to clap along to. "Ghosttown" is a haunting ballad, while "Illuminati" has an infectious melody that is reminiscent of a Lady Gaga track. While her collaboration with rapper Nicki Minaj is mediocre at best, she more than makes up for it with the upbeat and refreshing "Hold Tight," where her vocals are crystalline.
"Joan of Arc" is a highlight track on the album for sure. Her vocals are mellifluous coupled with its empowering lyrics, especially with the Joan of Arc comparisons. She sings it like a delicate lullaby.
"Iconic" is a collaboration with Chance the Rapper, and "HeartBreak City" is a piano-driven ballad. "Body Shop" is mellow and "Holy Water" is a spitfire dance track. "Inside Out" is sonically powerful and melodically stunning. It closes with the haunting "Wash All Over Me."
The Verdict
Overall, Madonna delivers on her latest studio album Rebel Heart. There is a lot of variety on this album that will please her diverse group of fans. It is safe to say that one could never go wrong with any Madonna CD. It is no wonder that she is the best-selling female recording artist of all-time. This new CD earns an A- rating.
