2.0 out of 5 stars Not very much here to excite even the hardest fan, 23 Aug 2012
This review is from: The Complete Studio Albums [1983-2008] (Audio CD)
On first looking at this set it looks rather nice, then when you look a bit closer you really wonder who this set is aimed at.For starters three of Madonna's number one's are missing, Into the groove, Who's that girl and Vouge. If it is aimed at the fan then its not very complete and lacks a lot, I'm breathless which was a complete Madonna album for Dick Tracy film is missing, which included Vouge a massive hit and Hanky Panky. I can understand perhaps the Who's that girl sound track as Madonna only supplied Material for one side as it was of the LP but then a further number one single is missing.I won't even start with Evita ! The first three albums are the dreaded re-mastered versions, where much of the sound quality was lost as they turned up the volume, too much. Like a Virgin is missing into the groove, and before you say it was not on the original, well it was added six months later, like many artist do(Marron 5 jumps to mind by adding moves like Jagger to the new album). So its missing but they have added some pointless re-mixes (now they were not on the original were they). There is no mistaking True blue and Like a prayer are fantastic album, but I am sure every fan, infact by the sales nearly everyone has them. The thing is with collections like this, they could be so great, but then for some reason, someone in the record company just does not think when putting things like this together and goes for the cheap option. I would have to say I am not sure this is even the complete studio albums, Why well from memory "You can dance" was considered a studio album, at the time we were led to believe it was, the first full price remix album. I'm breathless should have been included, and other reviews said a bonus disc collecting all the singles missing tracks would have been great then this would have been a collection that the fans and Madonna would have been proud of. I feel it is sad that this is just a cash in and I am pretty convinced Madonna has nothing to do with it. This is still great music but we all have it and there is nothing in this collection special or rare to please or excite any fan.
