A work of art. A really cohesive and innovative album. I LOVE it.

Killers Who Are Partying
Crazy
Come Alive
Extreme Occident
Looking For Mercy

Those 5 are my absolute favorites from the album. And if i had to choose JUST 1, that would totally be EXTREME OCCIDENT.

I played it to death the first few weeks. Now I'm giving it a good rest til I feel inspired again, I'm trying to avoid getting tired of it to be honest... On the contrary, I've been revisiting some of her old music videos in chronological order and Gosh, the 90s were pure gold.

On my first few listens upon release, I just couldn't get into Madame X at all. Minus a few songs (God Control, Looking for Mercy, and I Don't Search I Find), I found it to be rather patchy, messy, over-produced, and rather 'under-cooked'. The super excessive use of vocal effects is also rather off-putting, thus pushing the album down in my Madonna album ranking. A month later, and my views on the album haven't changed much at all, with the exception that I can no longer listen to God Control. I Don't Search I Find is still the real highlight for me.... it's a track with real potential... though it too seems rather unfinished.
I wouldn't rate this album as her worst, but it is down there in the bottom three with Hard Candy and MDNA.
