As its title suggests, "Rebel Heart" explores two distinct themes - being a rebel and following the heart - or what Madonna calls the rebellious renegade side and the romantic side of her. I was given the opportunity to listen to the album in its entirety and I loved it! My first impression was that the music is thrilling and electrifying. It's extremely hard to resist the temptation to dance to it as soon as the music is on.
The first half of the album is more to my liking than the second half. My favorite tracks include the opening song “Living For Love”, “Illuminati”, “Joan Of Arc”, “Ghosttown”, “Messiah”, and “Bitch I’m Madonna” (Feat. Nicki Minaj). Please be aware that some of the lyrics contain explicit language, which is not too surprising with Madonna and her collaborators. I'd recommend this album to anyone who loves upbeat dance music and who doesn't mind letting out their rebellious side for a moment.
"Rebel Heart" is available for purchase on iTunes. You can get a taste of the album by watching the music video of “Living For Love” below. Enjoy!
