HUNG UP - This is the first single off of the new album and is a huge hit in the clubs. The song has a sample from ABBA's song Gimme Gimme Gimme (which I have never heard) and has MADONNA singing about someone she is hung up on. The song has a very great groove and it's definitely the most commercial song on the album. With the chorus line "Every little thing that you say or do I'm HUNG UP, I'm hung up on you." and lines like "Ring , ring, ring goes the telephone, the lights are on but there's no one home" the song gets stuck in your mind and you find yourself singing these catchy lines. No Madonna song has as catchy lines since "INTO THE GROOVE" which had Madonna sing "At night I lock the doors and no one else can see". Very strong single that will keep the dance club crowd on there feet.
GET TOGETHER - This is a great up- beat song (inspired by Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You) with a very laid back trance like feel to it. The song has Madonna singing to a person she really likes asking "Do you believe in love at first sight?" Even if it's an illusion she states she don't care. "Can we get Together? I really, I really want to be with you. Come on check it out with me, I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too." Put some head-phones on and close your eyes and the Great retro dance beat along with the trance feel take you to another world.
SORRY - This is rumored to be one of the new singles from the album. Madonna sings "I don't want to hear, I don't want to know please don't say your SORRY." to someone she is probably never going to forgive. The songs chorus sounds similar to the bass line from The Jackson's' 1981 hit Can You Feel.Read more ›
Working with her new partners, most notably the savvy Stuart Price, Confessions is a 12-track segued mix of dance ecstasy. Lead single, Hung Up, amazingly mixes Abba's 1979 hit Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight) with Madonna's and Price's retro-disco fluffiness into a bona fide dance floor anthem. Follow this with the throbs of the electro-futuristic Get Together where Madonna makes you check it out with her as she really wants to be with you. Then, the song fades cleverly into Madonna saying sorry in a few languages before she sends you to gyrate along with Sorry. On Forbidden Love, Madonna morphs into Giorgio Moroder and creates a superb 80s-sounding yet stylish song of two star-crossed lovers. On the Indian-inspired, beats-driven Push, Madonna pays tribute to the one (presumably Guy Ritchie)who has constantly pushed her to her best.
On Confessions, Madonna's lyrics are never overly self-indulgent though short of any major revelations that we don't already know. There are self-discovery, enlightenment, empowerment, love, and lament.
Confessions is a true return to form for the Queen of Pop, something all fans have been eagerly waiting for.
The expanded version includes a 13th track Fighting Spirit, an electronic dance track with an uplifting message. Other goodies include a journal book with selected entries by Madonna, a picture book and 1-month trial membership to ICON, Madonna's fanclub. This is by far, the best Madonna special edition.
For fans only.
To be fair, I gave Mariah's "The Emancipation of Mimi" re-release only three stars. This was due to how it was marketed as a partially "new record". But this expanded version of Madonna's new album is clearly aimed for the Madonna devotee, & succeeds on that merit alone.
Housed in a sturdy, book-shaped black slipcase, you get the album, with one new track "Fighting Spirit".
"Fighting Spirit" sounds like an "American Life" leftover, Mirwais of course helming the production. But it seems that the track was given a re-newed spirit for the "Confessions" re-release. Lyrically, in the vein of the material from "American Life" the acoustic elements abound, in a quiet sense, & a dance element is brought to the fore. The tolling bells give it a haunting feel.
Now, that is great...but I personally wanted this due to the amazing 40-page booklet of Steven Klein's COMPLETE photography of the "Confessions" photoshoot, which is of course breathtaking. Wish Madonna would've stayed with the red hair! You also get an empty journal with lyrics in the lower right hand corner from "Like It Or Not" (regular cut from "Confessions"). And a one month trial membership to Madonna's official fanclub, ICON.
All in all, this is for the Madonna purist/hardcore person you love this holiday season! They may've bought the original album, but they will love the expanded version. Die-hards need only apply!

This album is very disconnected to me. I much prefer Bedtime Stories and Ray of Light. Madonna comes off as desperate (moreso than usual) and a tad pitiful. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mike Scott
