By Madonna‘s standards, this year’s American Life has been the first real flop in her 21-year career (not counting her movies, of course), failing to spawn even one hit single. This seven-track EP, including four routine remixes that fail to improve on the original Life cuts, won’t help. Only diehards will be excited by the inclusion of Madonna‘s “Like a Virgin”/”Hollywood” medley—recorded with Britney and Christina at August’s MTV Video Music Awards—her Gap-commercial reworking of “Into the Groove” with Missy Elliott or “Your Honesty,” a previously unreleased R & B shuffler from the Bedtime Stories sessions.
