    BBC Review
    Madonna's 12th studio collection has a few faults, but it's still a fantastic pop album.

    Madonna: 'MDNA'
    ...The final stretch, all of it co-produced by her most longstanding and sympathetic collaborator, William Orbit, sounds as if it's been borrowed from an entirely different and much better project.
