    I'll take Falling Free over Easy Ride, although I probably ought to compare them against each other. My kneejerk reaction could be as a result of comparing them to the rest of their parent albums.

    Oh don't get me wrong I ADORE "Easy Ride" and of course American Life as well.

    But there's something about "Falling Free". An off-kilter, disarming quality that's almost... sinister. It's hard to explain but personally at least, as a song, it's one of my all time Madonna favourites. It has nothing to do with MDNA being her worst album.

    There’s a different version on the deluxe than on the normal version? Or do you mean it was remixed between a leaked version and final version used?

    I think it was supposed to be on the deluxe and got taken off at the 11th hour.. or I might be confusing this story with "Queen" on the Rebel Heart super deluxe..

    Anyway, it's this version:



    It may well be unofficial actually.... for some reason I've tagged it onto the MDNA deluxe on my iTunes but not sure if it's on the CD..

    Well according to Wikipedia this version is on the iTunes pre-order deluxe... which may explain why I have it on iTunes as I did buy the album off iTunes and also on CD (LOON UP LOON UP)

    I like the more organic sound but if anything it accentuates the weird vocal more :( It's better where she's using her lower register

    And "frankly if my name was Benjamin..." has to be up there with her most cringey lyrics

    I still can't look at the cover without thinking of my nan's front door.

    Otherwise WHAT A LOAD OF TRIPE.

    I loved this album, but like Rebel Heart thought it could have been much stronger with a shorter tracklisting, starting off with the more mature songs around the theme of divorce, something like this

    01 Love Spent
    02 I Fucked Up
    03 Masterpiece
    04 Beautiful Killer
    05 Gang Bang
    06 I'm Addicted
    07 Turn Up The Radio
    08 Girl Gone Wild
    09 Falling Free
    10 Gimme All Your Luvin (superbowl Bonus)

    I love "Masterpiece" - the rest not so much. "Some Girls" and "Turn Up the Radio" were fun in 2012. It's definitely my least fav Madge album.

    I love how 'it would be much better if I didn't have to listen to half of it' has become standard for Madonna.
