Madonna will release her 14th studio album, Madame X, on June 14 via Interscope Records. Ahead of its release, the "Material Girl" hitmaker has been praised by those who have been lucky enough to review the record early.
In a four out of five-star rating review from The Guardian, they state that the album is her most bizarre record ever, but she sounds more natural than she has in years. They mention that the album is all over the place, but most of the songs are really good in their own right.
"All this baroque weirdness knocks the album off its axis, but most of its 64 minutes are actually full of very decent pop songcraft," reviewer Ben Beaumont-Thomas summed up the album.
In another four out of five-star rating review from The Times, they insist that Madame X is her boldest album to date.
"Now comes probably her boldest, certainly her strangest, album yet. Madame X veers between pop, Latin and clubby dance music, jumps from the personal to the political and is bound together by an exotic, breezy mood that feels strangely intimate, as if she is revealing a hitherto hidden part of her soul. She isn't really, of course, but she does a good job of pretending she is," Will Hodgkinson wrote.
