Hit and Miss
on 19 September 2009
Unfortunately, this album (although a greatest hits compilation) is abit of a 'hit-miss' because its not a true retrospecive of her career and its also not a complete discography either.
I don't understand why so many tracks, already included on her other two 'best of' albums, are included again here - surely it would have made more sense to include tracks not previously featured on The Immaculate College and GHV2, so that fans can have a definitive collection of her chart singles.
I'm also amazed at how poorly her 1990's career release's are represented here, only a handful of tracks across three albums (Erotica, Bedtime Storey and Ray of Light) - why has so much track space been given to her early 80's and more recent hits?
Its a true mystery too why such wonderful Madge tune's such as 'Rain', 'Nothing Really Matters', 'This Used To Be My Playground' and 'True Blue' as well as a few others, have been consistently ignored both on this and previous Hits albums.
Who doesn't love Madonna though, and wouldn't appreciate a trek back through her wonderful career? Its just a shame that this collection, if encompassing songs from her previous two Greatest Hits collections, wasn't more developed and providing a fuller (if not complete!) history of her chart tracks up to her current release 'Celebration'.
3-stars - could've been better!
