In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Joe Levy praises Madonna's new album MDNA, in which the pop queen gets emotionally explicit as she deals with the fallout of her divorce from Guy Ritchie. Also, Jody Rosen says Odd Future's latest is a mesmerizing set of tunes in which the controversial rap crew rise above their limitations, and Anthony DeCurtis digs the "rough-hewn elegance" of Justin Townes Earles' latest Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now.
