Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet” new album “Hard Candy” has leaked onto the internet. On “Hard CandyMadonna has enlisted The Neptunes and man of the moment, Timbaland. Whilst Timbaland fails to live up to his hype, The Neptunes return to form and bring us their best work in recent years, as well as some true Madonna classics. Songs such as “She’s Not Me” and “Spanish Lesson” remind us how good The Neptunes sounds with live Instrumentation, and include some surprising N¤E¤R¤D-esque bridges. Shae even gives a guest vocal on the epic “Incredible“, and Pharrell brings back his falsetto singing on every song. Meanwhile tracks such as the 80’s influenced “Beat Goes On” brings back top class production which leaves us in no doubt that The Neptunes are back on form. And as always Pharrell & Chad have provided some top class singles, “Heartbeat” and “Give It To Me“.. Sorry Timbaland… you lost !
