Madonna's 'Madame X' first impressions: "extraordinary," "surprisingly intense"


An official listening party for Madame X, Madonna's forthcoming 14th studio album, was held in London on Tuesday, and while full reviews are embargoed until June 4 several journalists in attendance took to Twitter to share first impressions. The consensus? Madame X is a return to form, and the best tracks have yet to be heard.
