Queen Of Pop, Madonna, has just released her 13th studio album.
The release of “Rebel Heart” hasn’t come without hitting the headlines for various reasons but let’s ignore that for now. Instead, let’s remember her previous twelve studio albums.
“Confessions On A Dance Floor” is the tenth studio album by Madonna. A complete departure from her previous studio album “American Life“, the album includes influences of 1970s and 1980s disco, as well as modern-day club music.
Released on November 11, 2005 in the United Kingdom, the album debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart with first week sales of 217,610 units – her highest ever in the country. It became Madonna’s ninth number-one album, and sold 1,288,213 copies by May 2008.
I’ll have to admit I don’t recall all the tracks on this album so this will be fun!
Track 1 – Hung Up
The first single from the album and it has a sample of an Abba track. This is probably one of the only times I’ve ever heard a commercial song use an Abba sample. I really like this song and it once again shows Madonna is the Queen of reinvention. The only think I am not so sure about is the video…it’s all a bit too lesbian gym teacher for me.
Track 2 – Get Together
This has everything apparently – a mixture of her own songs, Chaka Khan and Stardust and is made up of various slogans. It was a big success from the album but although it does sound familiar I don’t really remember it from the time. It’s certainly very dancey and not bad for a lady going into her 50s!
Track 3 – Sorry
This gave Madonna her 12th Number One in the UK and this is a brilliant uptempo dance track.
Track 4 – Future Lovers
Track 5 – I Love New York
A dance song about geography perhaps?
Track 6 – Let It Will Be
This is great – I love any song that starts with a big string section.
Track 7 – Forbidden Love
Usually by this point in a Madonna album I’m hoping for a nice ballad and this is kind of that. Slow beats but still very disco-fied.
Track 8 – Jump
A kick back to the 80s but very modern at the same time – how does she do it?
Track 9 – How High
There’s too much “noise” going on in this track for me to enjoy. It sounds a bit like the Terminator soundtrack…
Track 10 – Isaac
This is very close to tracks on “Ray Of Light” – it’s got all that spiritual vibe going on. I like it!
Track 11 – Push
I’m not to keen on this one and I’m not sure why. It just annoys me a little.
Track 12 – Like It Or Not
Here it is – a nice slowed down, chilled out track to wind this very different sounding album to a close.
What are your Madonna memories?
