The first album that made me buy a movie!,
This review is from: True Blue (Audio CD)
I love Madonna's music.
Even though she changes direction so often with both her sound and image,I ALWAYS buy her album without even reading reviews or listening to previews because I can almost GURANTEE I will love it(and you shouldn't listen to reviews all the time because the critics seemed to hate American life,but I personally think it is some of Madonna's best and most personal work).
And despite owning ALL of Madonna's albums...
I am NOT a crazy Madonna fan,who just blindly worships her like some idol.
I don't think she has anything close to one of the 'best' or 'strongest' voices in the music industry but I do think she has an incredibly versatile voice that seems to suit whatever she sings well.
True Blue is ONE of my favourite albums of her's(others are Madonna,American Life,The Immaculate Collection & Hard Candy).
Her is my opinion on each song individually...
1.Papa Don't Preach-This song is considered a Madonna classic,but it annoys me a little(I don't know why,maybe because of the Kelly Osborne association),sometimes I like it,sometimes I HATE it.
I'm going to give it 7/10
2.Open Your Heart-I absolutely LOVE this song.It excites me every time I hear it and reminds me of a certain someone!And it ALWAYS makes me want to dance and jump around!
3.White Heat-Since I only recently bought this album,I also only recently heard this song...and I am shocked it was not released as a single!
It has to be one of the most catchy Madonna songs ever!
I even bought the movie White Heat because of this song,because I was so intrigued as to was it was about!
4.Live To Tell-I believe Madonna has said this is her favourite out of all her songs.
While it is a powerful and moving song,to me it is also slightly boring and I must prefer her song Take a Bow(not on this album,but I think it is more moving).
5.Where's the Party-A fan favourite.
But I don't particularly like or dislike this song.
I didn't think it was very catchy or exciting.
6.True Blue-This is a very sweet song and great to listen to when you're in love or feeling incredibly happy.
Some might think it's a bit too girly or sickly sweet but personally,I love it!
7.La Isla Bonita-This is my Mother's favourite song,however I'm not incredibly enthusiastic about it,maybe it's because I've heard it SO many times.
I don't dislike it,but saying that,I don't love it either!
8.Jimmy Jimmy-Quite a fun track,not particularly memorable.
9.Love Makes the World Go Round-I don't mind this,but again it's not that memorable.
10.True Blue-This is a remix I'm not a fan of them,so I'll leave you to judge for yourself.
11.La Isla Bonita-See above!
