    Had such a moment with this album today. That 1-2-3 punch that is Nobody Knows Me/Intervention/X-Static Process never cease to make me cry.

    This still holds true for me. The album is really wonderful, with the exception of I'm So Stupid (which I really have grown to dislike MORE over the years.) I actually rank it as my 3rd favorite Madonna album after RoL and Music. *gasp* That revelation has come very recently, as I have been listening to Madonna pretty much non-stop in celebration of Ray of Light's anniversary.

    Some albums, including ROL, have more singles that I love, but as an album, I think American Life is her best.
