Madonna – Rebel Heart

Caryn Ganz from Rolling Stone felt that the album focused on two subjects: listening to one’s heart and being a rebel. Madonna explained that these concepts were not the initial inspiration, but emerged during the sessions with Avicii. One group of musicians explored an upbeat approach to songwriting, while the other team chose darker chords. Madonna observed two distinct themes emerging organically, and felt the need to express that. So the record was titled as Rebel Heart, since it dealt with two different facades of the singer—her rebellious and renegade side, and her romantic side.  A generally pop record, Rebel Heart was different from Madonna’s releases in the last decade according to Bradley Stern from MuuMuse. He called it an “eclectic record” merging an array of musical genres like 1990s house, to trap, to reggae to usage of acoustic guitars. Stern felt that unlike chasing the current musical trends—like those of Hard Candy (2008) and MDNA—the album was progressive in its sound. Jed Gottlieb from Boston Herald found the album to continue Madonna’s “increasingly interesting, innovative approach” by combining contemporary musical styles with her previous tastes. He found Rebel Heart to be an improvement from the generic dance tunes in MDN. Overall this is probably her best album in years, landing Madonna squarely back on the musical chess board as the Queen of Pop.
