Two more followed in the 1980s (True Blue and Like a Prayer), three in the 1990s (Bedtime Stories, Ray of Light, and the Evita soundtrack), and five last decade.

Art Rockers Liars are set to release their sixth studio album on June 5 on Mute, and now they've unveiled the title: WIXIW.
Yes, WIXIW. Confused? The band released a video (since removed) featured various people pronouncing the title "wish you."
As leadman Angus Andrew told Pitchfork, "With our music, we try to convey everyday ideas, but they get all mixed up and hard to read after they've gone through our musical process. It's a palindrome, and that interested us as far as the idea of starting somewhere, going through a lot of work, and ending up in the same place you started."[…] Read more »
