I listened to Hard Candy and I wasn't surprised. This is over-produced and over-hyped. I felt I was listening to a midlife crisis on steroids. Moo-donna worked with too many people on this CD. And it sounds like them, not her. It was like she was trying to keep up with the times.
If you can, remember when Ethel Merman did a Disco album in 1979? Well, that's what Hard Card reminds me of. An old broad still trying to hang on. The songs are lackluster, half cute, and Britney-ish. I wanted more from her. I hoped her CD would be good, actually it's better than Janet's and Mariah's CDs. But to be honest, they all disappointed me. They are almost irrelevant in the biz. Sure they bring in big numbers, but their music sucks to me. And Moo-donna... I secretly wanted to like this CD, but I didn't. It's not bad, but it's not her best. I haven't bought any songs from this CD. In fact, I just bought the song True Blue from way back. I guess I liked her non-hip-gansta-ho/go-go approach to music.
