NEW YORK, NY – MARCH 17, 2015 – Rebel Heart, the 13th studio album from Madonna is the best selling album in the country this week.
Raves for Madonna’s Rebel Heart include:
PITCHFORK: “She essentially built the house that everyone else-Britney, Beyoncé, Nicki, Gaga, Sky, Rihanna, Katy, Ariana, even Kanye-all now get to call home. She devised the archetype of pop stardom as we know and understand it today. And, with the exception of Michael Jackson-the King of Pop to her Queen-Madonna’s enduring impact on popular culture remains pretty much unequaled.”
ROLLING STONE: “Rebel Heart is a long, passionate, self-referential meditation on losing love and finding purpose in chilling times.”
LA TIMES: “Rebel Heart like its creator pushes through the pain and more often than not lands solidy and with great grace on its feet.”
NOISEY: “Madonna continues to keep us on our toes, like no other performer in the history of modern music.”
NY DAILY NEWS: “Rebel Heart’s best moments boast some of the most finely structured pop melodies of Madonna’s 32-year career.”
LONDON TIMES: At her best, Madonna remains head and sHoulders above everyone else in pop.”
THE TELEGRAPH: Madonna is relaxed and confident, singing with the sweetness and freshness of her youth, yet with much greater technical accomplishment.”
THE SUN: Her best album in l7 years and one of the greatest of her career.. Provocative, sexy, emotionally raw and self referential.”
