CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
After all, she does have the aggressive Nicki Minaj growling, “There’s only one queen, and that’s Madonna, bitch.” Regardless of the endorsement, it might behoove her to start thinking of her successor. […]

Pitchfork
It doesn’t really matter whether or not this drivel is insulting to Madonna‘s audience– the most loyal fans seem to embrace being submissive to her domineering persona– but it is disheartening when one of the most influential pop artists of the 20th century is tossing out the world’s umpteen-millionth “Mickey” retread as a lead single. She’s the one who deserves better. […]

The Guardian
The closing Falling Free is flatly fantastic: an Orbit-helmed, beautifully turned ballad, subtly decorated with strings and soft electronics. It’s one moment when MDNA reaches the heights of the predecessors it keeps referencing. […]
