What i always love is Madonna and her ageless spark you know? Its like the Peter Pan effect. The idea of being forever youthful in character and showcase really...which is really appealing and attractive.

And yes i believe it is this that really put me off the imagery for both now that you mention it :P

the artwork for HC could have been so inspired..Willy WOnka/ironic but it felt way OTT photoshopped for the wrong reasons

Whereas this era Madonna really has exorcised the demons that plagued her while recording HC and she is happier, more scandalous and attractive than ever IMO
wasnt she gonna do the black madonna for hc but chickened out

And yes she is back on for this time and not controversial or button pushing but just joyous and happy

Yeah...i feel personally she should have gone with that original concept. Utilised the productions she worked on with Stu Price, Pet Shop Boys and original versions she did with Pharrell and have gone with it...bringing the past, current and future elements into it...would have really shown what was going on in her head much more.

And this era i feel she is going with her gut instinct really. I mean the controversy literally came from nowehere with MDNA as the name, the attention to the artwork was critically praised, the lead and follow up single have divided fans...and the snippets have recieved generally positive verdicts...and the lyrics are gonna be her most confessional and eprsonal ever....we are onto a winner

Ah right and yeah you're right it is, it's not a religion is it? but more of spiritual ideology with no judgment...unlike a lot of religion in my opinion

Sanskrit (संस्कृतम् saṃskṛtam [sə̃skɹ̩t̪əm], originally संस्कृता वाक् saṃskṛtā vāk, "refined speech"), is a historical Indo-Aryan language and the primary liturgical language of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism.[note 1] Today, it is listed as one of the 22 scheduled languages of India[3] and is an official language of the state of Uttarakhand.[4] In Indo-European studies, Sanskrit occupies a pre-eminent position along with Greek and Latin

Right. Every so often I come up with a hyperthetical idea for a Madonna album. Now MDNA is virtually upon us, I am now imagining her next album.

It is October 2014

Madonna is in Paris, wearing a beautiful tight dress, cleavage slightly revealed but sexily safe in her dress! It is a black dress with red flowers on. On her legs are ankle bracelets and she is looking totally gorgeous. Short hair, straight and looking like Liza Minnelli. This is a 56 year old woman who looks 40! The internet is full of threads suggesting "Madonna is trying too hard to look youthful". The media pick up on the fact that a 56 year old should not be making dance records and even, controversially, on BBC1's Question Time a question "Is it time for Madonna to start acting her age" was light heartedly discussed with a tory MP suggesting it wasn't, a Labour female MP who said she was still an icon for million of women around the world and a Daily Mail reporter suggesting that she is the sperm of satan.

Madonna is in Paris promoting her new album. There is to be no World Tour this time around as Madonna has decided to take 2 years off so that she can mentor her 18 year old daughter who has decided to become a professional dancer.

But between now and Christmas, a number of TV appearances have been arranged and on BBC1, as part of their recent hit "A Sunday Night With....." series, a whole show will be dedicated to Madonna who will perform 4 songs from her new albums.

Her new album is called : Distant Drums and is a cracker!

Like MDNA (the critically acclaimed album of 2012 which has sold 8.2 million copies worldwide) it starts off with a bang!

1) Thunder In The City
A huge dance track produced by Madonna pal William Orbit. In the vein of Music's Runaway Lover but with a beat like Celebration, this is a great album opener. At the end of the song, she sings, without any instrumentation, a psalm before a mighty boom echoes throughout the speakers and we're straight into track 2 which is....
2) Party Time
Another great dance track, not quite as frenetic as track 1, but this time Stuart Price is the co-producer. Remember "Get Together"? Well this is that but on ecstacy!
3) When I Remember Paradise
This is a beautiful, meaningful song which highlights Madonna's maturing vocal style. It is the best ballad she's done since "Falling Free" and this is co-produced by William Orbit and her old collaborator Patrick Leonard.
4) I Feel Like Crying
Another tender ballad. Produced by Patrick Leonard and Stuart Price.
5) If You Trust In Me
After 2 melancholy, but beautiful tracks, the pace quickens! This is a beat laden song that will have you up dancing! Produced by Shep Pettibone and Tony Calderone.
6) Distant Drums
The title track and the UK Number 1 single. It's a belter of a song and the gospel choir are sublime! Another great track produced by Orbit and Leonard.
7) Family Ties
Hooray!!!! After 25 years this is the first Steve Bray and Madonna collaboration. It's very 80's and thank God for that! Great little dance track that won't tire you out!
8) Faith
A church organ opens this song. It starts off like a hymn, with the gospel choir of Distant Drums just humming beautifully in the background! Then it becomes a brilliant jazzy, electro number that will make you put it on repeat for days. Produced by Stuart Price and Patrick Leonard.
9) Where You Are
William Orbit's distinctive beats echo throughout this mid tempo number about her lost love.
10) Bedazzled
A cute, poppy little song, similar in style to "Amazing" but slower. This is the first real sign that the album is coming to an end. Co-produced by Mirwais Ahmadzai.
11) Into the Night
A big band ballad! A first for Madonna but brilliantly executed. Produced by Patrick Leonard.
12) Once There Were Dreams
Now there are memories. A sad song sort of highlighting the stardom Madonna has experienced. A fabulous ballad. Co-produced by William Orbit.
13) The Last Dance
This is by far saving the best until last. A very Abba-esque ballad that will leave you wanting to play the whole album again. A first too as this was co-produced by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. No wonder it sounds Abbaish!
