Biography

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

Product Description

MADONNA GHV2 - Greatest Hits Volume 2 (2001 UK 15-track CD album contains all the hits from Erotica [1992] through to Music [2000] including Erotica Beautiful Stranger Music and many more. When put together like this there is nodenying her continued standing as THE queen of pop! Sexy picture sleeve!)

Amazon.co.uk

Perhaps the most interesting decade in her career, GHV2 is a selection of the best songs from 1992's Erotica to Music in 2000. Throughout the 1990s, Madonna was well publicised for trying her hand at anything musical together with setting new styles and standards in pop fashion. GHV2 highlights her diversity as it shifts from the "In Bed with Madonna" period with tunes such as "Erotica" and "Deeper & Deeper" to the William Orbit and Mirwais phases of her last two albums by way of the Lloyd Webber musical, Evita. Fans of Music or Ray of Light who were not Madonna fans from back in the day may find the latter half of the album less easy going as it does not possess the quirkiness of her later material nor the cheesy but highly accessible quality of older tunes as featured on the first Greatest Hits, The Immaculate Collection. Nevertheless, there is far more to Madonna than cowboys and ultra-trendy producers; each of the 15 tracks featured here are definitely the pick of her five albums from this golden period. --David Trueman

As a teenager in the 1980s, I absolutely loved Madonna; I refused to go a single day without listening to at least one Madonna song. By the time the 1990s rolled around, the obsession had faded and, while I still liked Madonna, I really didn't keep up with her music (or pop music in general, the poor quality of which finally pushed me over to the oldies stations on my radio). For me, GHV2 is a perfect match. My previous exposure to most of these songs ranged from a little to none whatsoever, so I basically rediscovered Madonna when I bought this collection. Madonna has never gotten the respect she deserves for her music; all I heard about her for many years were criticisms of her movies, jokes, etc. Most of the critics seem to dismiss her music altogether, yet she unleashed some huge hits (not to mention impressive albums) during the 1990s, most of the best of which are included in this retrospective collection. Now I know that Madonna is larger than life and that her music is really only a part of her persona. Many people have disapproved of some of her antics over the years, including myself on occasion, but I have always loved and admired her strength, resolve, and undying commitment to be a complete individual and do whatever she wants to do. It's easy to get lost in all the ephemeral nonsense that surrounds the woman, but her very foundation is her music, and this collection shows what an amazing performer she really is.
Madonna has been around quite a long time now, as hard as that is for me to believe. The reason she is still turning out hits while many other artists from the early 80s are gone and forgotten comes down to her unmatched ability to completely recreate herself. Not only does she adapt to changes in the musical scene, she leads the charge for change herself.

Like most great artists, Madonna's career also suffered the "lows" during the 90's. However, she continues to amaze her fans by quickly getting into a new "high" unexpectedly. "The Immaculate Collection" is without question one of the best "greatest hits" ever made. Digitally remixed and remastered, TIC closed the 80's and opened the 90's.
GHV2 is not necessarily the sequel to TIC. It is not chronologically arranged, no new tracks included, no Shep Pettibone or Goh Hotoda to engineer or oversee the entire project. While some fans may look for her ballads in GHV2, they were already released in 1995 via "Something to Remember." And since Madonna is known not to "repeat" track releases, she excluded them to pack more materials. GHV2 is a real mixed bag of Madonna's second decade, and for that we should already appreciate such release because this is all for the fans.
While GHV2 closes yet another era of Madonna, fans of the Icon are just waiting again what her new incarnation might be and what "The Immaculate Greatest Hits Collection Volume 3" might sound like!

The undisputed queen of pop closed out the 90's with her most critically acclaimed album of her career to date (Ray Of Light) and to top it off came GHV2, a searing collection of Madonna hits from 1992's Erotica through to 2001's Uber cool electro clash jaunt that was Music. Having granted the fact that her sales took a dip in the 90's (Dip not fall!!)Madonna unleashed her most inner creative desires throughout the 90's becoming more experimental, fun, and down right funky with her choice of musical styles. Not only was she eager to embrace new sounds but visuals as well. She circum-navigated the globe through her choice of visual direction and inspired millions including a few other female entertainers to boot, from the gay clubs of LA and NYC in Deeper and Deeper and Erotica through to the world of Barbarrella in the Bedtime Story clip, our hero also took on the world of the Geisha and Cowgirl with Ray Of Light and Music. There wasnt much that the 1st lady of pop wouldnt undertake, like a jugernaut she trashed through every culture snapping up pieces on the way, the result is an album that shows an artist fully in control of her career able to make the choices she wants directing where she goes. GHV2 in retrospect is a kind of thankyou to the millions of fans for sticking by her through thick and thin, her choices of musical styles may not have been to everyones taste in the 90's but she proved that you can either follow the crowd and become staid or stike out and become a vissionary!! Madonna chose the latter and im so glad she did!Read more ›

GHV2 opens with the brilliant dance track "Deeper & Deeper", which ends with the familiar lyrics "You've got to / Let your body move to the music..." from her classic "Vogue". From this, you know what to expect. Polished, mature and likeable pop music from the undisputed queen of pop. Madonna's Erotica phase continues with title track "Erotica", a seductive and slightly scary exploration of human sexuality, which is another classic track in the bag. In fact, so many of these tracks are simply amazing, from the dance-pop of "Human Nature" to the brilliantly produced "Music", that it's hard to describe simply how good this album is. The only dip in quality is during "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and despite this being a pretty good song, it really doesn't fit here. GHV2 does the unthinkable and manages to rival The Immaculate Collection, which is something that few albums by Madonna have ever done. Good on her!
The only problem is the lack of new stuff. Unfortunately, there are no brilliant new tracks like there were on The Immaculate Collection ("Justify My Love", "Rescue Me"), although this is the first of her albums that "Beautiful Stranger", the bouncy, summery Austin Powers theme, has appeared on.
GHV2 is a must for anyone who missed Madonna's 90s albums, and it gives you just what you want - all killer, no album filler...
