Madonna: New 'Celebration' album leaks and gets an 'A-'

Madonna: New 'Celebration' album leaks and gets an 'A-'

Madonna certainly hasn't been at her creative peak lately. Hard Candy wasn't a bad album, but it just didn't have that "Madonna quality" to it. Fortunately, her new greatest hits album Celebration has leaked and it will remind people of what she does best: make enjoyable (and sometimes thoughtful) pop songs.

Madonna's artistry is so easy to forget when seeing her thrust her crotch at us or jumping on stage with muscles and veins bulging from every part of her body. When listening to "Live to Tell," however, the technically lacking but emotionally riveting voice grabs your attention. "Like a Prayer" reminds us that Madonna can even be a good songwriter once in a while.

For people in their thirties or older, the music definitely takes you on a journey. Madonna - whether we like it or not - has been part of our lives since 1984. Listening to these songs will remind you of your first date, your high school prom, your first day of college, losing your virginity, getting married, getting divorced, and other major life events.

Many of the songs, such as "Like a Prayer" and "Vogue" are remastered and sound stronger. Some of the songs, such as "Dress You Up" are chopped off in order to make room for more songs on the album. Listening to the early hits such as "Material Girl" and "Holiday" proves that Madonna really couldn't sing. However, listing to more recent songs such as "Miles Away" and "Beautiful Stranger" show that even though she's still not technically perfect, Madonna has come a long way as a vocalist.

Madonna included two new songs: the spectacular "Celebration" and the unspectacular "Revolver," which sounds like it was recorded in Britney Spears' bathroom. Still, you can always skip the latter song. This album may not be great for die-hard fans who already own Madonna's non-edited material. For casual fans, and even haters, Celebration is a fun - and sometimes thoughtful - trip down memory lane that you won't regret.
