Product Description

Product Description

This mini-album features the cast of Glee’s distinctive and unique take on such Madonna classics as “Like A Virgin”,“Express Yourself,” “Vogue,” “Like A Prayer” and more. The Material Girl herself expressed her love of Glee and gave them free reign over her catalogue for a special Madonna themed episode.

BBC Review

It's starting to look as if Glee is inventing its own alternate reality, similar to our own in almost every way, except all music is slightly gussied up, and sung in plummier voices.

Madonna's music already runs at a fairly high level of gussy, so these seven songs, taken from a one-off episode, are incredibly faithful to the originals. Apart from the precise, Broadway diction of the singers, every last breath, beat, spoken aside and synth stab on this special EP (Glee-P, anyone?) has been painstakingly recreated from the source material.

At its best, it's a loving homage; at worst it's like the re-made pop music retailers play in shops to avoid paying proper royalties. The closer to verisimilitude they get, the more you notice the things that aren't quite right. Express Yourself and Like a Prayer, for example, are so faithful to Madonna's versions that there's a hole where her voice should be. It's unsettling.

When they mash-up Borderline and Open Your Heart by juxtaposing segments of the song in a haphazard fashion, you'd be forgiven for wondering if the musical directors are a little out of their depth. Having said that, the decision to get all the boys to sing What It Feels Like for a Girl is inspired, and represents a genuinely powerful musical moment that doesn't need the TV show's plot to make it fly.

Which is the point at which all criticism of Glee's music falls down, really. As they are essentially photocopies of the originals, the songs depend on the context of the show to make sense. So listening to the album on musical merits alone is close to pointless.

Then again, why would anyone be listening to this without having seen the show? --Fraser McAlpine

Madonna is an icon, the lady has sold over 300+ million records and is recognised by them that know has the biggest selling and greatest female perfomer of them all. So why wouldnt glee cover her songs and pay their tribute to her?
So thats what they have done and hit number 1 in the usa in the process. These tracks are select cuts from the madonna glee episode and while fun and catchy they will never capture the greatness of the originals. however its still a great effort and worth a look. Fans of glee will love it and madonnas back calalogue opens up to a new generation.

I enjoy most of the tracks on this EP (my favourites are Vogue, Like A Virgin, 4 Minutes and Like A Prayer), but in general some aren't my favourite Madonna songs so that was a little disappointing. I still bought it though, and would still recommend it to fans of both Glee and Madonna.

Really great album and only from one episode!

'BURNING UP' is the best song by far and Jonathan Groff tears. it. up! Shame it's missing here because it's the highlight of the album. It's on itunes, so i'd STRONGLY recommend getting just that song.

'4 minutes' and surprisingly 'Borderline/Open Your Heart' are also highlights.
The rest are amazing too, 'Express Yourself' - really fun song.
'Vogue' - it's Sue Sylvester, so nuff said (Will Schuester, I hate you) so funny.
'Like a Virgin' - real good mid section with Naya (Santana) who's amazing.
'What it feels like for a Girl' - good stuff, great harmonies - Kevin's (Artie) awesome as always.
'Like a Prayer' - an amazing song whoever sings it, but Amber's (Mercedes) voice makes it POW.

Overall it's brilliant, so just get it.

The rate that the cast of Glee are spinning out these records, makes me wander where they get the time to do their day job (filming for the TV Series!) Once again an album full of top notch cover versions - this time covering a few of Madonna's songs. Favourites on the album include 'Like A Prayer' (which is one of my fave Madonna songs anyway), Express Yourself, Borderline/Open Your Heart, Vogue (Video is pretty funny), and 4 Minutes. Not keen on their version of 'Like A Virgin' or 'What It Feels Like For A Girl' though.

Love this album, and the only reason for giving it 4 rather than 5 stars is because it's not long enough! I think it does cover all the songs they did in the Madonna episode, but they could have made the CD even better if there was a bonus track or two of songs that didn't make the TV show. Love Glee...can't get enough of the cheese!

The Queen of pop covered by the prince and princesses of the small screen... and it works!! Fantastically well! The guys and girls do her Royal Highness proud with songs that not only sound original but are faithful in production to those originals which rocked the music world all those decades ago. With new smash hits covered like 4 Minutes and disco classics Burning Up, a real variety of hits have been included although famous ones like Holiday or Hung Up should be on here too but thats a minor gripe. It also gives weight to a second installment later in the year as The Power of Madonna episode drew in a record breaking 14 million viewers in the states ALONE and this EP looks set to hit the top spot on Billboards coveted top 200 album chart, amazing when you think that the woman whom this is dedicated to hasnt even released a new album in over 2 years! Its real testament to her enduring power and relavence despite upstarts like GaGa clambering for the spotlight, will her hits have this appeal in 30 years time? I doubt it! This is a great EP which is full of fun, frolicks and pleny of suprises, just like Madonna herself, the crew have done an amazing job and Glee just goes from strength to strength... this is a homage like no other and one which they hope to repeat soon, all thanks to Madonna, the one and only Goddess of pop!

I don't even like Madonna that but this is truly amazing

I watched the episode online and it's fantastic-The songs are some of the best from the show

The vocals are perfect. Jane Lynch is fabulous as well which surprised me a little

The songs are
Express yourself-Great fun song
Borderline/Open your heart-Amazing
Vogue-Jane Lynch (Sue) sings this and it is brilliant as is the video
Like a virgin-Great song. Its very natuaral whhich nice
4 Minutes-Great song. Its sung by Mercedes and Kurt. Its my 2nd favourite and catchy as hell
What it feels like for a girl-Good song sung by the boys which is kinda funny-Not the best though
Like a prayer-Absoloutly amazing song. Rachels voice at the beginning is so incredible. My fave song

So make sure you get this album as it's going to be epic

I have not been a fan of Glee for that long. I have only just caught up with the episodes. Needless to say, I am a fan, a very big fan, and this album is fantastic. 8 songs for a fiver is more than worth the money.

My personal favorites are 'Like a Virgin', 'Like a Prayer', 'Express Yourself' and '4 minutes'. However, the best track has GOT to be Vogue. Jane Lynch's vocals are fantastic and the video to the track, which can easily be seen on YouTube, is utterly sublime. I do think they missed a trick by not having 'Hung up' in the episode but for a Madonna fan, or just a Glee fan, this album is a definite buy!
