I completely agree. I'd love for her to go in that direction, but I doubt she will in the near future. She seems obsessed with staying hip and relevant to the younger generation, even though that's mostly not working for her. Maybe she'll surprise us with the next album . . . Again, agreed. The songs that have been most enduring for me from her last two albums are Masterpiece from MDNA and Heartbreak City, Ghost Town, and Joan of Arc from Rebel Heart. I'm sure a big part of the reason I'm enjoying the DQ album is nostalgia--an iconic singer I have loved since I was in middle school singing iconic songs I have loved since I was in elementary school. I'm always interested in varying opinions of songs and what's considered "good" and "not good" but at the end of the day the only thing that matters to me is whether I enjoy a song/album or not and sometimes (maybe even often times), admittedly, my enjoyment can be influenced by sentiment; and I'm ok with that. I certainly don't think the album is a masterpiece or anywhere near that, but for me, it's ticking the right boxes and I'm enjoying it. I've listened to it on the treadmill at the gym the last two days and it's been perfect for that.
