Title: American Pie, Pt. 1 [Germany CD]
Label: Wea International
Artist: Madonna
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
Note the Facts:

The people that give this song one-star ratings haven't really listened to the song, (or they don't know true pop music). Madonna took this song and made it into the best it's ever been. Her voice fits the song better than the other guy's voice and the song is more apropriate for a woman to sing. In my state, this song has been at number one for about six weeks straight!

Rating: 3/5
Customer rating - 3 out of 5
Really average

I bought this album based on the quality of Simple Things which I loved. This album is not close to the same quality. I've given it two listens just to give it a second chance. It's average. Download some of the tracks before you buy it.

I Absolutely ADORE This Album

This is definitely not a typical album. Not in a time when bands like Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20 come to mind at the thought of "alternative" music. Perhaps that is why it has received so many harsh reviews. It is definitely not what people expected as a follow-up to "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness", a double-album that featured over-driven guitars and angst-filled screams. But the real fans saw this one coming. The Pumpkins promised fans even before the release of "Mellon Collie" that there would not be another album like any of the previous Pumpkin albums. Why? Because that would go against what the band is all about. Going against the grain. Destroying and taking over the mainstream. They succeeded before, and, in my opinion, succeeded again. Being by far the most mature Pumpkins album, "Adore" captures the sensitivity and love that many did not see before in Billy Corgan (although I can't understand why not, af! ! ter hearing so many sweet songs of his before). It captures the listener from the beginning and drags them along for a smooth ride. Although "Adore" may not be as loud as prior albums, it still rocks at certain points. It doesn't have the feel of a rock album, though. "Adore" goes far beyond that. It is a unique gem in the Pumpkins collection, and it should please the fans (although a few will be disappointed, no doubt). While a person might not fall in love with "Adore" after one listen, it is not because it lacks quality. It is because "Adore" is by far the most advanced album that has been released to date. I applaud Billy Corgan, James Iha, and D'arcy for another spectacular achievement that will hopefully get the recognition that it deserves. As suggested in the song "Apells and Oranjes", the Pumpkins were "diggin' for the feel of something new." It looks like they struck oil.

The Queen Of R&B

Everybody thought this cd would be real good because of the 1st single "Crazy in Love" with it's famous booty dance but after the booty dance is gone this cd is nothing but a BIG dangerous disappointment. A couple songs on the cd are alright, not very good but it wasn't bad enough that you had to skip them, which i did a lot because the cd is WHACK!! The song with the legendary Luther Vandross is a very good song she actually song real good. I thought this cd was going to be awesome but it wasn't, so don't waste your money buying the cd listen to it first online then if you like it buy it but if you have a musical taste like me you do what you gotta do. I personally think Monica's "After the Storm" cd was WAY better then Beyonce's cd so if you looking for a good cd this summer Monica is the right one, just look over this poor excuse for a cd.
