Madonna has had a rocky year in 2003, but she ends it on a positive note with the maxi-single for "Nothing Fails/Nobody Knows Me". It features a generous amount of remixes for both songs. All the remixes are excellent, surprising considering the number of remixers including Peter Rauhofer, Tracey Young, and Above and Beyond. My only disappointment is that the remixes of "Love Profusion" are not included as previously indicated. Maybe they didn't want to be too generous...but this is still a worthy package and even more satisfying than "Remixed and Revisited".

"Nothing Fails" is one of the best ballads from the "American Life" album along with the "Love Profusion". Very unfortunate that Madonna or her recording labile decided not to release a video for this single. In general, it's very hard to remix ballads for clubs. Most successful ballad remixes ever made by Madonna was the one for "I want you" and "Love don't live here anymore" which never got commercially released. "Nothing Fails" remixes are overall fine. My favorite mix is the Peter Rauhofer's Classic House Mix. Nevins' mixes are of a dub nature and very "noisy". Too sad Madonna withdrew "Love Profusion" mixes from this maxi-single. The maxi is a must for Madonna fans.
Hopefully, Madonna's next album will have more beautiful songs like "Nothing Fails", "Love Profusion", "Don't Tell Me" and she will stop singing like a robot AND WON'T EVER GET CLOSE TO BRITNEY SPEARS BECAUSE IT'S A BIG SHAME FOR HER!

First of all American Life is a very underrated album. If you haven't got it so far please get it. Nobody Knows Me is my favorite fast song. The remixes are out of this world. No one really knows Madonna and she talks about "people are not so kind" and "it's so hard to find someone to admire" great words. All remixes of NKM are awesome. Nothing fails is really good to. Original version with the chorus is the best. The first 3 remixes; Peter Rauofer Classic House Mix, Nevins Room Rock Mix, and Tracy Youngs Underground Mix, are a little repetitive but I would give it a 7 of out 10. The last 2 remixes are great and you would definately dance to them. This song talks about her love for hubbie Guy Ritchie and how she has climbed "the tree of life" and "no longer care if I fall". Which she has after being around for such a long time and seeing so many things and now if something happens in her life and it brings her down she will not fall, which is implied. I am so glad she sang both these songs at the Reinvention Tour!!I highly recommend this Maxi Single to any Madonna collectors!

Did you know Madonna is the artist that has the most #1 singles in any one given chart? What chart you may ask? Billboard's Dance/Clubplay chart. Currently having 3 songs at once in that chart is just amazing. It's obvious Madonna is no longer the Queen of pop, but the Queen of dance.
Madonna has a way of picking the BEST DJs to kick her songs up a notch. Peter Rauhofer, Tracy Young, Above and Beyond.
'Nothing Fails' has in my opinion 3 GREAT dance mixes on this maxi, and 2 pretty good, not quite as dance floor friendly mixes.
'Nobody Knows Me' ... Well ... the Above & Beyond mix just BLOWS ME AWAY!!! I LOVE IT! The dancefloor goes wild when that mix comes on!
I do wish the mixes of 'Love Profusion' were included on this maxi, but you can't get everything...it'll just give me something to look forward to I guess.
This maxi-single sits next to Madonna's 'Music' maxi-single as a true classic. This is a winner.

Nothsarva doesn't know what he/she is talking about. "Nothing Fails," by far the strongest single from American Life to date, serves so well to a remix, it's crazy. The five mixes here all bring something different to the song. Although, once again, I was not moved by Rauhofer's repetative mix (just like all his mixes the last few years have been, save Whiteny Houston's "Love that Man" and see below), it gives a classic-house feel to the song that others like. Though Nevin's Radio Mix ruined the song by ripping bare all the emotion of the song because of the guitars he added, his Big Room mix, being more of a dub version, works magnificently. Tracy Young, as always, brings her signature, unique brilliance to her mix and gives it a more mysterious club feel, while the Jackie Mix, the best mix by far, is just mind-blowing in it's twists and turns, strong beats, sound effects and awe-inspring use of the choir.
"Nobody Knows Me," the second-best track on the album, serves SO well to the remixes, and I had been waiting for mixes from the moment I bought the album. Here, Rauhofer finally worked some of the magic we used to know him for and has turned the track into a brilliant extented-play, harder-hitting club mix which stays true to the original. The Above & Beyond Mix turns the track into a trance-lovers dream and gives me tingles every time I hear it. The Mount Sims Mix, in the steps of Daft Punk and Felix da Housecat, turns the track into a retro-80s electro/euro track that brings me back ten years, while staying ahead of the game.
Sorry, but this is, by far, the best single off of American Life. It is such a worthwhile purchase, as every single track is unique, and brings life to two amazing songs.
