Yes, the first year anniversary was a couple of days ago. There was #StreamMadmeX campaign on social media but I think the loons all just played their clear vinyls or something

I still absolutely adore this album.

Has it really only been a year? God I feel like this was years and years ago. Erased that horrific Eurovision performance from my mind until this. So thanks for that hun. X

Oh SYNKY :D

But I digress. I played it quite a bit last year but don't bother with it anymore. It was a solid effort but I find the whole thing so incredibly po-faced to the point of distraction. It doesn't make me want to ever put it on, even if the individual songs are good.

I didn't enjoy any of the perfs (especially not Eurovision) or the interviews and I never want to see a sparkly eyepatch AGAIN.

I really like the album a lot, but whenever I listen to it now, I find myself wishing that Mirwais had produced the entire album. As much as I like the other songs, some of them just don't measure up.

It's absolutely her best album since Confessions though, by some distance. Not quite top tier Madonna though.

I can't bring myself to listen to any of it at all and haven't in 11 months. Medellin, Killers and God Control are great though.

i just find her voice too shot to enjoy anymore

This is a big problem for me also. It's a shadow of its former glory. It does sound at times like its old self though, on some tracks like "I Don't Search I Find" and "Extreme Occident". A song like "Come Alive" would be a 10 if she didn't sound so thin on it.

Overall it’s a good album with some strong work throughout it interspersed with some nonsense and some bland cliches. Strangely I am only prompted to play it if someone mentions it, I never seek it out myself but it’s definitely better than the impression that sentence suggests.
