Madonna Has an Identity Crisis on MDNA

Who's that girl?

Up until that point, though, "I'm Addicted" is probably the best song on the album, with Madonna's voice processed to next week and a thumping beat that will probably sound great at 3 a.m. early Monday. It's the sort of song that Madonna has always done best—it doesn't merely pay homage to cultural trends, but instead models them in her own image. But Madonna spends much of the rest of MDNA looking back, both at her career and at the musicians creeping into her rearview mirror's view, and the end result is disconcerting enough to make one ask, simply, "Who's that girl?"
