American Life is the ninth studio album by American singer and songwriter Madonna. It was released on April 21, 2003, by Maverick Records and Warner Bros. The album, produced by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï, features references to many parts of American culture. The album is a concept album, with themes of the American Dream and materialism. These themes reject the reputation Madonna held in the 1980s, earned by songs such as her worldwide hit "Material Girl" (1985).
The album opener, and first single is "American Life". A glitchy, sassy piece, and a great way to start off the album. Lyrically, Madonna delves into questioning her "American life". Although as a first single, it was a risky (see: WRONG) choice. Although many find the rap section in the middle annoying, I find it brings a delicious irony to the song, and I think it really is a personal taste issue. The overall sound of the song is an excellent way to introduce the listener to the electro-acoustic sound of the album. Album closer takes us into introspective mode, with Madonna singing about wanting to earn the things in her life. She doesn't want an "Easy Ride", which just so happens to be the song title. Acoustic guitar, epic strings, and an excellent part towards the end that sounds like the CD is skipping (in a good way). A great way to close the album.
American Life is the ninth studio album by Madonna. The album was unique in that it featured deeply personal perspectives, views and observations from Madonna that reflected on modern life in America. The album was critical towards or reflected on an Americanised world based on the principles of Hollywood and standard or standardised global culture.
American Life is the ninth studio album by singer and songwriter Madonna. It was first released on April 21, 2003, via Maverick and Warner Bros. The album’s lyrics feature several references to many parts of American culture, which is the basis for the album’s theme. A total of four official singles were released from the album: American Life, Hollywood, Nothing Fails and Love Profusion. The song Die Another Day, which is included on the album, was first released as a single via the James Bond ‘Die Another Day’ Soundtrack in 2002

While American Life certainly wasn't the kiss of death for Madonna, her ninth studio album did end one of the winningest streaks in the history of pop. Although the LP-which was released 15 years ago on April 21, 2003-did debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, it became the lowest-selling studio LP of her career up to that point. But revisiting American Life 15 years later, it deserves more love than it has gotten - it's perhaps the most underappreciated album of Madonna’s catalog. Listening to it now, it certainly bests Rebel Heart and MDNA, and from a lyrical standpoint, it probably beats 2008’s Hard Candy and maybe even 2005’s beloved Confessions on a Dance Floor.
