    i hadn't put this on in ages and though i doubt i will again soon, it's a pretty enjoyable little album with some great tracks, some terribly cheesy tracks i quite love regardless and a couple of real stinkers

    it's ABSOLUTELY SENSATIONAL

    those who moan obviously just don't get it. It's possibly the 3rd best New Jill Swing album of the 90s (behind TLC and En Vogue) and that's NOT BAD from a WHITE CHICK

    NEVER be ashamed about "I'd Rather Be Your Lover" :evil:

    I mean it features Me'Shell Ndegeocello playing bass and rapping - WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?

    The clunking bassline, the plodding tempo, the naff lyrics

    Well I liked it before I went on any Madge fan forum that told me otherwise, apparently it's not cool to like "One More Chance" either, who would've thought?

    I've just recently discovered how wondrous "Love Tried to Welcome Me" is, LUSH

    My second least favourite Madonna studio album, but still a 9 from me. The last 4 tracks are fantastic and the opening 3 very good, its the middle 4 that drags a little for me. Overall a couple of my favourite songs are on this, but not enough to make it a favourite of mine.

    I make it a rule never to listen to loons because, well, they're loons for a start

    "One More Chance" is gorgeous

    How do people not like 'One More Chance', I have been titled a Madonna 'loon' recently and I think its quite amazing.

    erm the bassline is clearly the BEST PART, how is it clunking? The beat and bass are such a perfect tribute to the North East nu-jazz club sound of that era as well, her tribute to artists such as Joi and N'Dea Davenport

    not to mention it's a jazz sample and co-written by The Isley Bros... therefore GENIUS

    and not every Madonna song can be a 4/4 gay euro dance beat, Christian, especially considering this was an R&B album :(

    Which is why I rated it 9/10 :evil:

    That song, however, is the weakest link by far. Sample, nu-jazz bollocks and rent-a-cred artists NOTWITHSTANDING

    that may well be the very reason you've been titled a loon

    It's a very solid album, it just lacks highlights for me I'm afraid.

    Solid, moments of absolute greatness and quite "nice" as an album, but it doesn't feel like a Madonna album SHOULD in some ways...if that makes sense. 8/10, but I DO LOVE IT

    Quite so. It's always been a stone cold 10/10 moment for me. Lovely lyrics too - current Madonna, take note please.

    Reading this has just reminded me that I'd Rather Be Your Lover is by far the worst Pre-2000 Madonna song and now I have it in my head. THANKS MOOPY :evil:

    There's not nearly enough love for "Love Tried to Welcome Me" around here.

    These are my lips, but they whisper sorrow
    This is my voice, but it's telling lies
    I know how to laugh, but I don't know happiness
    And I must confess, instead of spring, it's always winter
    And my heart has always been a lonely hunter


    :(
