  • It's a shame that 'Batuka' is a bit "ruined" by her vocals. I think after a good few spins the autotuned vocals tend to blend in (for the album overall), but I can't get over them on this song. The rhythm section seems very dynamic, there's this very earthy vibe to it....but she just sounds like she could be singing about a snickers bar. No emotion at all...like SIRI reading you the telephone book.
    I sometimes really wonder what the intention is when an artists makes weird choices like that.

            Last year in May she said soon for Madame X. Well I guess at least this is gonna be a long era.
            I have received many gifts from God,
            but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess
            .

                  Me too. I love them. So far so good. Even I rise audio video with madonna dancing like martha graham looks elegant and masterful. Videos are great this era

                    God no. I adore the vocals on Batuka - my vocals favourite on the album alongside KWAP.

                      Okay but, what do you love about the vocals?
                      I mean, I love the song and I love the whole 'air' it breathes, but the vocals where she calls "It's a long waaayaaay" sound lifeless to me. While the response "It's a long waayaay" sounds like it's also her vocals but layered to sound like a choir. She sounds better in the responses to me but I don't hate the song at all!

                        That line is my favourite part!

                        The entire song is supposed to be one long chant and I think her voice works perfectly on it.

                          Yeah it is simply a long chant (which could have been better without autotuned vocals but...)
                          In this case, I'll stop whining about it and enjoy it for what it is!

                                        This opinion is valid. Btw Madgefan Have you recovered from the trauma of listening to that album?

                                          'Love Spent' is my favourite I think from MDNA. I still used to get that excitement listening to M's albums back then, not so much with 'Madame X' until we heard 'Dark Ballet'. Controversial comment ... GMAYL is better than Medellin

                                                  That's a controversial opinion yes, haha.
                                                  I think it's not as terrible as it's made out to be though, It was a fun pop song.
                                                  I really shouldn't have such retrospective opinions yet though, not until I've heard the bulk of her discography.
