Confessions on a Dance Floor

On Confessions of a Dance Floor, Madonna, the most popular and significant female artist in pop music, returns unapologetically to her roots. A stunning blend of musical styles with one foot in early disco and the other pointed toward the future, Confessions On A Dance Floor “is all about having a good time straight through and non-stop,” says the Material Mom, who co-wrote and co-produced every track. For Madonna and music fans everywhere, the all-dance, no-ballad Confessions on a Dance Floor i

    MADONNA brings artpop dance to us her best album since Ray of Light !, November 15, 2005
    Porfie Medina “Porfie Jr. Medina” (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA) –

    This review is from: Confessions on a Dance Floor (Audio CD)

    MADONNA is back with her new album Confessions on a Dance Floor and it is an amazing album and one of her best!

    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. Sure to be another huge club and commercial hit.

    FUTURE LOVERS – This is one of my favorite songs on the album. This song also has a retro vibe to it with another trance like feel. This song has a lot of stuff going on musically and it is inspired by Giorgio Moroder/I feel Love by Donna Summer. The song has some spoken vocals for the first minute and a half, then it breaks out in to this awesome dance song. She sings “In the evidence of it’s brilliance” talking about love. This song is going to be HUGE in the clubs.

    I LOVE NEW YORK – Great dance song that has MADONNA telling us how much she loves NEW YORK and hinting towards George Bush and his home state. Singing, “If you don’t like my attitude then you can just f off. Just go to Texas, isn’t that where they golf.” Very awesome dance song with a very punk rock feel to it. This is also rumored to be a single off of the new album.

    LET IT WILL BE – this is a song that has a raw feel to it with a funky house groove and a retro 80′s feel to it. This song sounds similar to the string opening (played on a synth) from her own song PAPA DON’T PREACH. This song has MADONNA singing lines like “Now I can tell you about success, about fame, about the rise and the fall, of all the stars in the sky, Don’t it make you smile? Let it will Be. Just let it be. Won’t you let it be?”

    FORBIDDEN LOVE – This is one of the slowest dance songs on the album and one of the most beautiful. The song has computer generated, and vocoder style vocals and has another 80′s feel to it. The song is the closest thing to a ballad on the album. MADONNA sings “Once upon a time there was a boy and there was a girl. Hearts that intertwined they lived in a different kind of world. Forbidden Love are we supposed to be together? Forbidden Love we seal are destiny forever.”

    JUMP – This is one of my other favorite tracks on this album. This song has a great beat and classic MADONNA vocals. This is one song that will make the club crowd JUMP and remind anyone of classic MADONNA. Madonna sings ” We learned our lesson from the start my sisters and me. The only thing you can depend on is your family. Life’s gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree. It sways, and it swings and it bends until it makes you see. Are you ready to jump? Get ready to jump. Don’t ever look back oh baby. Yes I’m ready to jump. Just take my hand, get ready to… are you ready?” This would be a great single and in some countries is expected to be released as a single.

    HOW HIGH – This song has a great beat to it and is another song that has computer generated, and vocoder style vocals. This is a song that has lyrics (similar to “Drowned World/Substitute For Love) about Madonna analyzing and evaluating her fame and success. She sings “How HIGH are the stakes? How much fortune can you make? Should I carry on? Will it matter when I’m gone?” Another great song!

    ISAAC – This is another beautiful song on the album. Despite the early controversy this song has spawned, this is s song that has a very beautiful Jewish chant with strings and guitars that envelope you and take you on an…

    You can dance, for inspiration, December 11, 2005
    Dogville (Sunny Island) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    22 years after she first graced the dance floor, Madonna is sending you an invitation to get into the groove again. And if Confessions is anything to go by, she shows the world that she still can dance as well as inspire.

    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.

    For hardcore Madonna collectors, a Christmas treat!, December 12, 2005
    Neptunian Spirit “Q” (Dayton, OH USA) –

    Of course, like other Madonna devotees, I was out in force to pick up her newest studio outing “Confessions On A Dancefloor” last month. The album surpassed any expectations I had, so imagine my glee when I realized there would a “expanded” version being released during the month of December.

    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!
