4.0 out of 5 stars Happy 80s memories!, 27 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Madonna (Audio CD)
I'm writing the review mainly to clear up some of the comments about remixes. The remastered release is from what I can tell almost identical to the previous CD version, except for the addition of the 2 extra tracks, the 12 inch versions of 'Burning Up' and 'Lucky Star' (which was originally on the American 12 inch single - the UK equivalent had the album version instead).

I remember the vinyl album from the 80s the first time around, and it sounds exactly the same. 'Lucky Star', 'Borderline' and 'Holiday' were all remixed for the Immaculate Collection (and then used on 'Celebration' too), so perhaps that's where some confusion arises, as radio stations usually play these remixed versions, as the original 80s single versions (edited from these album versions) are difficult to get hold of on CD, if at all. A greatest hits collection featuring all of the original single versions is long overdue.

According to a fan site, originally the European LP contained a different mix of 'Burning up', but the CD had the same version as the American one.

The album is not quite up there with 'True Blue' or 'Like A Prayer', but it's a very good 80s album which is refreshingly under-produced compared to the Madonna-wannabes of today. Brilliant memories!
