The music on this album has not dated, even thoguht it was originally released in 1984 (Into The Groove ws added in '85 - an early forerunner for today's trend of reissuing 'deluxe' versions of albums!). Like A Virgin, Material Girl, Into The Groove, Dress You Up, Angel, Love Don't Live Here Anymore - we all knew all the words and played it constantly while wearing out our VHS Video copy of The Virgin Tour. Mdonna seemed so ballsy, so new and fresh and exciting - who of today's female singers can you say that about? Nowadays we see Miley Cyrus stick out her tongue - for the millionth time that day - and we think: put it away, love, we've seen it all before.Read more ›
As this is a remastered version of the original release of LAV, it does NOT include Into The Groove, which is a shame. However, most people who want it will have that on The Immaculate Collection.
With 4 huge hits (Material Girl, Like a Virgin, Dress You Up and Angel) some classic Madonna album cuts, Over and Over (later to be remixed on You Can Dance), Stay and a cover of the Rose Royce classic ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’ (which was remixed and released as a single many years later to support the ‘Something to Remember’ ballads collection), and the truly beautiful (and still one of Madonna fans most loved ballads) Shoo-Bee-Doo.
The remixes are good, essentially extended versions (as the 80’s did best!)
A classic and historical album!
No one can deny how huge this album was. It made Madonna a superstar, and it sunk its anchors into both the album and single bestseller charts. The title track was of course a huge hit and represents to me a cultural phenomenon. Material Girl had an even larger impact, and many would argue the song basically defined the decade of the 80s; it certainly helped shape the decade. Dress You Up was just a fun song with a great beat; as things turned out, it was to a certain extent prophetic because Madonna basically did dress up great multitudes of young admirers copying the Madonna look. Angel was another big hit, largely because it was so easy to relate to. Anyone who has ever had a crush on someone knows exactly what Madonna is singing about here. Over and Over also charted, I believe; it lacks the substance of the other songs on the album, but both the words and the energizing music do encourage you to keep going in the face of setbacks. Love Don't Live Here Anymore is the true gem on here, though. I kept expecting it to be released as a single because I really believed it would be a huge hit.Read more ›
To bracket Madonna as 'just another broad selling sex to get record sales' is to do her a serious injustice, however. The lady has serious talent and has written some incredible songs in her time - artistically as well as commercially. With Producer, Nile Rodgers, at the helm this album was always going to sound a little like 'Chic' but in more cases it actually sounds nearer to the Bowie, 'Let's Dance' or The Power Station, 'Some Like It Hot' sound than disco.
I'm not a great fan of her version of 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore' and don't really think it was a wise choice for her to sing. Madonna is no soul singer and the Rose Royce, Gwen Dickey sung original is an absolute classic slowie... I do like the slightly sad/reflective slant on 'Shoo-Be-Doo' though while the hit, 'Dress You Up', and remaining tracks are all good pop songs if not classics.
The addition of the 12" versions of both 'Material Girl' and 'Like A Virgin' is a huge plus here as both extended versions are great and remind me of my years as a D.J. or clubbing and the re-mastering job has also been done well.Read more ›
