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

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary Masterpiece - brilliantly enhanced 5 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
As I did with my review of Madonna's first album (remastered), I will start with comments on the actual track list, followed be comments on the digitally remastered version.

TRUE BLUE, in my mind, is probably Madonna at her most inspirational. Other flashes of excellence like RAY OF LIGHT and LIKE A PRAYER may indeed receive mention, but it is this album that will always peg Madonna as a serious and brilliantly gifted artist. Five songs were released to great success internationally, viz. "Live To Tell", "Papa Don't Preach", "Open Your Heart", "True Blue" and "La Isla Bonita". Moreover, "White Heat" was a fairly large hit in South Africa, and "Where's The Party" stormed the charts throughout the Far East. It is this latter song which begs to be remodelled and re-released in time for Madonna's upcoming Greatest Hits package (the 2nd "Immaculate Collection"). I personally fail to understand why this song was never released internationally in the first place.

The album opens with "Papa Don't Preach" - a superbly composed, poetic tune that sets a rather gloomy ambience. This is followed by "Open Your Heart", an upbeat, inspiring piece which is full of energy and aplomb. "White Heat" ensues, with a child-like theme akin to "cops `n robbers". We are then confronted by some hauntingly beautiful material in "Live to Tell", probably one of Madonna's strongest and most sincere ballads to date. This seriousness fails to last though, for "Where's The Party" lifts the spirits once again, as the lyrics ask us to "free our souls" and "lose control". Succeeding this wonderful dance tune is the title track, "True Blue", a love-inspired pop song, full of imagination and excited girliness.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the '80s 21 Mar 2014
By JB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I've said in previous reviews, it's difficult for younger generations to udnerstand what impact the release of early Madonna albums had on the youth worlwide, particularly girls. This was released as Madonna changed her image from the exciting Crucifixes / lace tights/ crop tops one, to a much more subdued, jewellery-free one. It shouldn't have worked - she cut her hair, put on less make-up, almost became a tom-boy - it was such a drastic image change you couldn't imagine any of today's stars doing it. But she made a success of it because she is Madonna and she had attutude, but also because the music was just as darn good as that we'd loved on the Like A Virgin album. Madonna was exciting because she was constantly evolving - becasue she showed that not only could a woman be fresh and influential, but she could hold her own with the men when it came to making brilliant music.

So we all awaited this LP with bated breath - woudl it be as good as Like A Virgin? What could possibly top Into The Groove? Would she go back to the long hair and Crucifixes before too long? And this is what she answered us with.

This is, quite frankly, one of the best, most defining albums of the 1980s. Not only did it macth Like A Virgin, True Blue surpassed it. Love Makes The World Go Round, White Heat, La Isla Bonita, Papa Don't Preach, True Blue - all are excellent pop songs of a quality you just don't get these days. Madonna fans knew the instant we heard it that this album was her gift to us - that she hadn't just rushed out some cod disco pap to capitalise on her fame. No, she had taken her time over this, and given us a great album full of pop highlights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far from Blue 6 Feb 2011
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Its often been coined as a summary of 80's synth-pop, though I'd personally argue that Madonnas 'True Blue' escapes a variety of the cliched' sounds we've come to associate with the era. In fact, its not such a bad summary afterall.

From a period when the young girl herself was indeed human (and didn't require 23 hours-a-day of yoga to stay in shape), we hear an album that presents many issues of the young, lending Madonna a guise of worship even though she herself barely broke sweat in making the album. 'Papa Don't Preach' is of course the lead document - a cry for understanding when the characters are blessed - or indeed doomed - by a child at such a young age. From here on its all about the energy, with 'Open Your Heart' (could be re-titled 'Open Your Cover Versions) lifting the mood, 'Wheres The Party' asking a genuine question in itself and 'Jimmy Jimmy' making both a humorous and thoughtful statement on the life of one Hollywood legend - though equally, asking the age-old question of why foolish girls date... fools!

Extended with a few bonus tracks for good measure, this isn't an album to be missed. It could be said that it demonstrates the 'right side' of 80's popular music, since its typical reverb and stage-drums are somewhat flat enough to avoid scarring your ears for life (unlike Bruce Springsteen), but all the while, its so potently synthetic that you can't help feel happy from giving it a blast. A seminal album from this mysterious character.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic 21 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
This the point where Madonna became critically acclaimed, and it is still a stand out album. It sold by the bucket loads, and whilst the album only comes with 9 tracks (+ the 2 added remixes on this remastered version), its not hard to see why.
Packed with hits such as: Papa don't preach, Open your heart, Live to tell, La Isla Bonita, and True blue, and fan favourites, Love makes the world go round and Where's the party, this album is like a trip down memory lane.
The best remix here is for La Isla, which uses the gorgeous backing vocals to full effect, and is basicaly an extended version.
