NYT: Madonna Uses "Hard Candy" to Renew Her Brand
Madonna‘s new album, Hard Candy, will be released this Tuesday, April 29 and The New York Times had a lot of positive to say about it. Here are some highlights:
– Madonna uses “Hard Candy” to renew her brand and defy skeptics, yet again.
– No one since Madonna has come close to achieving the same alchemy of flirtation, pop proficiency, concert spectacle and self-guided tenacity.
– “Hard Candy” also taps into exactly the sounds that current hip-hop reclaims from the disco era: electro keyboard riffs, filtered voices and bits of Latin percussion.
– Her grand statement on “Hard Candy” is nothing more than that she’s still around and can still deliver neat, calculated pop songs.
