I first bought this album in 2OOO, and was bowled over by how chic, luxurious and well made this album was. Even though at the time, the album was 6 years old, it still sounded groundbreaking, modern and better than anything about at the time in RNB - (Mariah, TLC etc). I can listen to this album whenever - its one of those rare albums where it suits you for any occasion - its great when you're feeling upset, great for getting in the mood, or just feeling really happy. The best songs are undoubtedly 'secret' and 'survival'.
Even now in 2OO8 - an astonishing 14 years after its release it still sounds really good - better than Nelly Furtados 'Loose' Album, and better than Mariah's new CD. It just goes to show how unrivalled and superior Madonna is compared to her 'rivals' in terms of her choice of musical style, choice of lyrics and choice of producers to work with.
I understand this album was more or less overlooked by the world upon release- I think the world was still unforgiving of Madonna since her course'SEX' obsessed phase 2 years earlier. In fact this album ironically is full of the softer, richer, sensual side of sex, which is the direct opposite of her last albums theme. Even though this album has sold around 10.000.000 worldwide, it was no way a dissapointment. In my opinion though, it should have sold 3 times that.
It is my favourite Madonna Album to date, and i would love her to release an album of similar material once again to give the world a second chance to experience a more 'sensual, rich, chic side to Madonna.
I you want an album which will become a timeless piece to your music collection, buy it NOW!
The artwork is also superb, with some fantastic, gorgeous pictures of Madonna.

I missed this album and several others by Madonna owing to life getting in the way of my music collecting. So along with Hard Candy and American Life, I bought this to update my catalogue of her material. What a surprise this was, very r n b and smooth and of the three I have bought this is the most immediately comfortable to listen to. A very happy purchase.

Released in 1994 after the confrontational S&M themes of erotica and the sex book, this album went some way to rehabilitating madonna's batterd reputation.
Enlisting top soul co-producers Dallas Austin, Babyface and dave hall, Madonna went for the languid rhythms of cool, urban hip hop and R&B.
She also laced the mix with some cult british cachet, coutesy of Nelle Hooper and a title track written and penned by Bjork.
This was a calmer, fluffier Madonna, as shown by the tender ballad and standout track SECRET.
TAKE A BOW which closes the album was her biggest hit in america, staying at the no.1 spot for 7 WHOLE WEEKS!
Some of the songs on the album such as SANCTUARY pave the way for the brilliant experimental textures of the massive RAY OF LIGHT album.
rating 10 out of 10!

I bought this album at the time of it's release and funnily enough never really listened to it properly all the way through until a good 10 years later! I was amazed to find what i had missed out on all these years!

After the shocking 1992 album 'Erotica', Bedtime stories was a welcomed comback which saw a more soulful, senstive and vulnerable side to Madonna, particlularly on tracks such as 'Inside of me' and 'Love tried to welcome me' which is not only my most favourite track on the album but also sees Madonna at her most vulnerable lyrically!

This album has a good balance of smooth, groovey, R'N'b pop tunes which in my opinion was the saviour of Madonna's then somewhat damaged career! I remember in an interview madonna stated that Bedtime stories was her least favourite album to record because she used so many different producers for the record but in my opinion this is one of the best along side 'Ray of light' (1998) and 'Confessions on a dance floor' (2005).

If you are Madonna fan and you haven't heard this album, I urge you to buy it from Amazon today! You won't be disapponted!

The first time I heard Bedtime Stories I wasn't very impressed, in fact I would go as far to say that I didn't like the album. I have loved everything Madonna had produced and found her to be a talented yet underrated artist. A year later I decided to give this album another go and it instantly grew on me. Now it is in my top 4 'M' albums. Never have i had such a change of heart with an album.

The 90's saw Madonna change as a person and as an artist. This album emphasises that when compared to previous material such as her first 3 albums. After the Erotica controversy Madonna opted for a softer more toned down image and sound. She tried to appeal to the masses again. She turned to R&B, something she hadn't really touched. However, she didn't make your typical R&B album from the 90's like Mariah Carey ( Daydream/Music box) or even MJ (History).

With the help of some amazing producers and writers including Babyface Madonna created some of her finest work. The album proved to be a commercial and critical success. Although it wasn't the same height of success she enjoyed with Like a Prayer or True Blue.

-survival. This proves to be a great opener for the album and really set the feel for the rest of Bedtime Stories. 4/5

-secret. Honestly one of her best singles to date. this is a great R&B/Pop tune and was performed amazingly by Madonna 5

-I'd rather be your lover. One of the albums weakest tracks yet it still had a catchy sound to it 3.5

-don’t stop. Personally, my least favourite track on BS. It doesn't fit in with the album and tries to include a more dance-disco sound. I find that it distracts you. 2

-Inside of me. This is a beautiful song by M. very impressive with great lyrics. 4.5

-Human nature.
