Here's what some critics have been saying about Madonna's latest album Hard Candy:

 

By Chris Willman, Entertainment Weekly:

·        "[Madonna] makes it work with this surprisingly rejuvenated set."

·        "Candy finds [Madonna] dropping her Kabbalah string on the dance floor and readopting an American accent to offer up an unpretentious, nonstop dance party."

·        "In tunes like 'Give It 2 Me,' [Madonna's] unabashedly reviving the celebrative spirit of early singles like 'Lucky Star' and 'Holiday.'"

Elysa Gardner, USA Today:

·        "Madonna's new album, Hard Candy reminds us of the power of a grown woman who knows what she wants and how to get it."

·        "There's no doubt who's in charge on numbers such as the breathless 'Give It 2 Me' and the thumping, bittersweet 'Miles Away.'"

·        "With Hard Candy, Madonna at least lets us sample the sweet sound of success."

Sal Cinquemani, Slant Magazine:

·        "Disco provides Hard Candy with its juicy center while hip-hop merely serves as a crunchy shell."

·        "[Madonna] sounds at home among all the disco strings, toots, beeps, whistles, handclaps, and Chic guitar licks of tracks like "Beat Goes On" and "She's Not Me."

·        "It's just what America ordered."

Ben Thompson, The Observer:

·        "Hard Candy is a tough, nuggety confection offering plenty for listeners to get their teeth into."

·        "In the course of 'She's Not Me's blissfully heartfelt six minutes, [Hard Candy] really hits its stride."

·        "'Incredible' picks up the disco-fundamentalist baton and flies with it into an enchanted cloudscape of Eighties pop candy floss."
