A ”Sorry” review from down under
Madonna’s success and longevity as an artist can very much be attributed to the fact that she is a skillful reader of culture.
As musical trends have shifted with the times, Madonna has changed along with them, always evolving and assuming a chameleon-like mutability to adapt to the current climate of popular music.
You only have to look at each successive album cover to realise the constant reinvention of her image from girly pop princess, to R&B sex kitten, to androgynous punk chick, to modern spiritualist. On her latest album, “Confessions On A Dance Floor“, Madonna makes the transformation to dance floor diva in order to capitalise on the current electronic tendencies apparent in today’s popular music.
But where Madonna has in the past given listeners something new and different within those genres that have given her pop songs more of a timeless quality, the single “Sorry” is your straight ahead, run of the mill house music. But that’s not to say it won’t be a hit in club land. If you’re looking for a no-brainer dance anthem that’ll get you moving, then pick this one up.
