Madonna’s ‘American Life’ Her Finest Work

April 9, 2003 – A fan on Madonnarama.com reviewed Madonna’s forthcoming album ‘American Life’. Edward Russell writes, “What do I think? Bearing in mind that I need to listen to it in the privacy of my own home, in my own time and learn the songs I think I still come to the same conclusion. This album is fu**ing amazing. It’s the best piece of work she has ever produced. It’s homogenous-sounding in terms of production, yet it is full a diversity in its song style. Her vocal is breathtakingly good. It is acoustic, yet electronic. It is ’80s, yet very modern. It has taken 20-years for Madonna to create her finest work and I am blown away. There is not a bad song on it. Fans will not be disappointed.”
