Whew… writing is such hard work at the moment, why am I so lazy? I’m still claiming Eurovision comedown, is that still alright? Huff… but no, here we are, inching closer to that top 10. Can you contain yourself? I hope so. If not, put down a towel or something. IT’S ON!

Regular readers will know that over recent months I have posted reviews of every single one of Madonna’s studio albums, and some tidy-up reviews of all the non-album singles and whatnot that came in-between.
