Madonna’s new album “MDNA” can leave you with mixed emotions. The pop album is filled with techno beats and offers a typical '80s lyrical feel.
Although many online critics claim “Madonna is back,” I feel her new album is just like any other dance-club track recently created. The album lacks originality and a freshness that hit songs like “Vogue” or “Like a Virgin” embodied.
MDNA is Madonna’s 12th studio album with Martin Solveig, Benny Benassi and William Orbit as producers.
The song “I Don’t Give A” featuring Nicki Minaj has an individuality-inspiring feel. The lyrics “I’m gonna be OK / I don’t care what the people say / I’m gonna be alright / Gonna live fast and I’m gonna live right,” give the listener the impression that you will be alright and it is okay to stand out.
The repetitive lyrics throughout the song “Girl Gone Wild” leave you with nothing but a typical dance song. “Girl Gone Wild” simply expresses the idea that a good girl can get wild — an unoriginal and typical notion created throughout lyrics today.
Personally, the saving grace of the album was the song, “Falling Free.” The song creates a tragic love song essence through the lyrics and “Falling Free” keeps the album alive and brings out the Madonna that I enjoy.
Madonna is considered a legend within the music business, therefore, I expected more from her. I was expecting an album that would inspire me and instead I found a stereotypical pop-dance album. There are a few songs that show her true abilities, but overall, I was disappointed.
