New Madonna Album Hailed As Available For Purchase

LONDON—Pop superstar Madonna has once again wowed music critics and consumers alike with her latest offering, Hard Candy, an album that has garnered unanimous praise for the ease with which it can be exchanged for money.

"There's something here that anyone can pay for, whether they are longtime buyers of Madonna's albums or new to spending money on her music." Although Hard Candy has only been available for three weeks, its format of a two-channel 16-bit PCM encoding at a 44.1 kHz sampling rate per channel has already drawn comparisons to such classic CDs as the Beatles' Abbey Road and the Spin Doctors' Turn It Upside Down.
