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?"

I think its not true she is doing a good job and her world tour will be the best tour ever because she is giving her 100% attention to her concerts .

I think she will face this easily and ill show that she is the biggest star in pop music and her albums first week sales were fantastic to clear all this.

I agree with you, MDNA is not seems to be Madonna creation as it use to be. It’s just Madonna brand image that helped her achieving some sales but fact is she is facing real time criticism.

Pretentious, and predictable review, motivated by bad faith.

Madonna's last album is excellent.

She's rehashing her old stuff to make new stuff and using the new girls to help her out. She's her own fan club. Time for graceful retirement Ms M.
