MDNA Rocks for sure the best madonna album since Confession I feal but Music is at the top also so I love it all
What a fantastic achievement, although I'm not surprised at all. MDNA is a fantastic album, showcasing Madonna's beautiful voice in tracks such as Falling Free and Masterpiece, whilst setting new musical trends in tracks such as Gang Bang and I Don't Give A. I've listened to nothing else by MDNA since I purchased my Delux copy two weeks ago!
