Madonna Says ‘Take It Or Leave It’ With New Album

‘Confessions on a Dancefloor’ producer Stuart Price spoke briefly with about Madonna’s latest effort, due out November 15th. “Basically, it’s saying, ‘This is who I am. This is what I do. Take it or leave it,'” Price said. He added that the entire album was recorded in his home studio in London, which presented a challenge due to a neighbor that cries throughout the day and night. Price warned that if you listen to the album closely, “You may hear her on background vocals.” Read more, including the track listing, here.

    Hate to play devil’s advocate here, but Mariah said the exact same thing about “The Emancipation of Mimi” during the pre-release hype. It’ll be interesting to see which album will do better during the week of November 15, because Def Jam is re-releasing “The Emancipation of Mimi” on that day as well. Maybe it’ll get quiet around here when one of these ladies’ albums shows the other one up on the charts.

    Ok…if he was producing songs in a house/apt that you can hear your neighbor crying in another home/apt, then Madonna must be insane to record in such conditions. Or, she could be doing the “Cher, Michael, Elton, Prince” thing- as they get older, they become odd in their actions. Cher and Michael now have the same face. Elton and Madonna are two little girls that run around acting foolish. Geez, sometimes celebrities become their own worst enemies.

    Hmm, “this is what I am, this is what I do” seems like an old and overdone statement from Madonna and many artists. But anyway, I bet the album is cool, not really planning on buying it right away though.

    I’ll give her credit for experimenting. She knows she’s taking a risk and that is what credible artists do. She could have played it safe by hiring Jermaine Dupri or Nelly like some other overweight divas who I don’t even care to mention but you all know who she is. Anyway, Madonna does has a knack for knowing who’s who in the underground music scene and hiring the right producers to fulfill her always experimental musical directions.

    Are you serious.. I like Madonna’s music these days, but there’s no denying that her vocals are extremely subjected to major studio magic. Ray of Light is a prime example. There’s no way she has the range that is depicted in that CD. I’ll give her credit for singing most of her live stuff actually live, but you can’t say her recorded vocals aren’t manufactured and produced to the hilt. In reality, Madonna has a distinctive and instantly recognizable voice but it’s also rather thin and weak.

    She does take more risks than the typical mainstream star, although I would classify these as calculated risks. In other words, she will only go so far, in order not to alienate the bread and butter pop music fan base she has. Anyway, I’ve always said Madonna’s strongest talent is her ability for recognizing and finding exceptional producers. She does go for different sounds, and I like that about her.

    I don’t think there’s Studio Magic when it comes to her voice in the studio, it’s’, ‘just more rested. She banged out ROL live on Oprah yrs ago before the interview and sounded great, she hit all those notes. But then if you look at the 98 VMA’s where she gave interview after interview all day, her voice was strained, this is why her voice cracked and she struggled during her performance of ROL. Some singer that I know will rest their voice til after their performance and this is what she should do. I’m not saying Madonna is one of the best singers, but she has improved and has stretched her range. I’ve heard they filtered her voice back in the day but doubt this is the case now.

    But I do deny that she has a strong voice. :) I’m sorry, I know you’re a true fan, and I’m not trying to dis her…I recognize her voice is distinctive, you immediately know it’s her…but it’s not strong in terms of really being able to hold a complicated note, or go up much in range. That being said, I do think she has a more interesting voice than some of her more technically apt competitors.
