No matter what people say... I think Madonna is one of the best performers of all time. She has accomplished many things, and remains one of my favorite artists of all time. I like most of her albums. She struck gold with me by releasing Confessions on a Dance Floor. I mostly listen to dance music as it is, so this hit the nail right on the head. That woman keeps going and going, and I love it. No man-card issues whatsoever Remember, a real man isn't afraid to open up. No need to suppress.
Must concur. For those that don't like her - you at least have to give massive credit where it's due for having an absolutely original, take-no-prisoners approach to bringing oneself from nothing on the New York punk circuit to a nearly 30 year career as international sensation.

Bedtime Stories (1994)
Her and Babyface were incredible on that album.
Quoting Tommy767 (Reply 1): Self-titled from 1983 with "Borderline", "Lucky Star" and "Holiday" on it.

I remember when that came out back in 1983.

Amen to that!
Quoting Tommy767 (Reply 6): I'm specifically talking about Reggie Lucas, John Benitez, and Nile Rodgers.
That materal was brilliant. Recently the True Blue album ha grown on me.
La Isla Bonita
Live To Tell
Papa Don't Preach

Quoting OA412 (Reply 14): I'm a fan of pretty much all of her 80s stuff. Her self-titled album, Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, as well as Ray of Light, and some of the stuff on Bedtime Stories.

Having listened to her since 1982ish/83 , I agree that Ray of light is probably her best much like many of you have said. (I wonder what makes it so great. I find it a great flying CD). Also, "Erotica" is another fave album of mine.
Its funny how many of Madonna's albums remind us of a certain period in our lives. Like A Virgin reminds of dancing at the Palladium in San Francisco and pining for a certain someone (the song Pretender), True Blue reminds when I lived in France, Ray of Light reminds me of being on a remote atoll in French Polynesia.

Do you play a musical instrument?
I play guitar & bass. I can respect the musicialship and arragements in her songs. Yes Madonna has a large gay following but that doesn't take away from the artistic value of her music.

I'd have to say, I like her older stuff more than her recent records. My favourite album is probably The Immaculate Collection-it's a compilation of some of her greatest hits until 1990-ish (fanboys will know that this record omits some major hits). I'd have to say True Blue is my favourite-the tracks Papa Don't Preach, True Blue and La Isla Bonita are among my all-time favourites.
From the 1990s, I only like Ray of Light-Frozen is another all time favourite. The '00s were a bit of a dissapointment but Confessions on the Dancefloor was probably the best.
When it comes to Madonna, I tend to like a few songs off each album so it's difficult for me to really say what's my favourite.
