Apparently there's nothing in Kabbalah that disallows sweaty, head-spinningly good dance music, because here comes a flame-haired Madonna hawking a dozen songs' worth:Confessions on a Dance Floordarts seamlessly from Madge's early days, when she emerged … see full wiki
I'm primarily a book reviewer (and author), so you won't get musical or technical analysis with this review. All I can say is that I've listened to Madonna since the 80s (I was born in 1970), and this is her BEST CD ever in my opinion.
