I agree with many others who say that this is her worst album. The tracks just doesn`t have the quality like all the songs from the 80s, 90s and some actual ones but there are 2 or 3 I like from this album. And the sound quality from "Hard Candy" is awful. There`s so much distortion in many tracks (CD and vinyl as well). I don`t know if they didn`t had enough money for good equipment or whatever. I can`t imagine that it`s wanted.
The only reason why I bought this album was I liked the coloured vinyl.
Anyway, Madonna is a real icone and for me she will always be a great singer.

Well, the album's mellodies are actually good, but the current typical "modern R&B" (or whatever you call it) music arrangement spoils the overall impression. I would say its the worst Madonna's album out of her 11 main albums together with "American Life". American and British public doesn't really like this album either. It would be her worst selling album in USA -"Gold" 0.5 million. In UK its her worst selling album ever - 100k - "Gold" so far.
For comparison "Conffesions" sold in UK alone 1,2 million copies.

She always delivers her goods but 'Hard Candy' is such an embarrasment to listen to. For someone like Madonna it is amazing how all the money and technology in the world provide results this weak and faceless... undoubtedly, her worst album in years. And yes - some reasons lay in the fact Justin, Timbaland and the rest helped ruining herself.

Of course, this still carries the fact Madonna is some 'queen' of pop very close to a deserved retirement. Fascinating how she looks and all the energy but making and album of 'Nutrasweet' confections certainly wasn't what everyone (if anyone) expected.

Someone already wrote - 'Hard Candy' sounds like Madonna guests on her own album. Very expendable and forgettable. Avoid. 'The beat goes on' but not on this album. 0/10
