As I've said in previous reviews, it's difficult for younger generations to udnerstand what impact the release of early Madonna albums had on the youth worlwide, particularly girls. This was released as Madonna changed her image from the exciting Crucifixes / lace tights/ crop tops one, to a much more subdued, jewellery-free one. It shouldn't have worked - she cut her hair, put on less make-up, almost became a tom-boy - it was such a drastic image change you couldn't imagine any of today's stars doing it. But she made a success of it because she is Madonna and she had attutude, but also because the music was just as darn good as that we'd loved on the Like A Virgin album. Madonna was exciting because she was constantly evolving - becasue she showed that not only could a woman be fresh and influential, but she could hold her own with the men when it came to making brilliant music.

So we all awaited this LP with bated breath - woudl it be as good as Like A Virgin? What could possibly top Into The Groove? Would she go back to the long hair and Crucifixes before too long? And this is what she answered us with.

This is, quite frankly, one of the best, most defining albums of the 1980s. Not only did it macth Like A Virgin, True Blue surpassed it. Love Makes The World Go Round, White Heat, La Isla Bonita, Papa Don't Preach, True Blue - all are excellent pop songs of a quality you just don't get these days. Madonna fans knew the instant we heard it that this album was her gift to us - that she hadn't just rushed out some cod disco pap to capitalise on her fame. No, she had taken her time over this, and given us a great album full of pop highlights.

Celebrating exactly 30 years to the day since it was originally issued, Madonna's "True blue" stands as one of the greatest pop albums of all time. Taking a different direction from her first records, addressing a variety of issues, and incorporating many genres, "True blue" built on "Like a virgin"'s solid foundations, and established Madonna as the ultimate pop idol and a global superstar. Complete with its creator's new, more subdued image, it had all that was needed in order to engage an older audience who might have been skeptical of her music and attitude. The string of 5 singles off this album ("Live to tell", "Papa don't preach", "Open your heart", "True blue", "La isla bonita") is arguably among M's most successful as well as her strongest. Demonstrating her skills as a songwriter and entertainer through its poignant mixture of topics and great tunes, the album became her rite of passage between girly pop and adult pop, and became the archetype of '80s and early '90s pop music, marking an era where music and fun were genuine, innocent, carefree and meaningful. At that time, it was only Madonna and Michael Jackson who presented such brilliant records, with spectacular accompanying videos, creating a buzz that extended beyond just the music. M was "Causing a commotion" so great that, by the time her tour came to an end, noone asked "Who's that girl" because she was so famous that could be recognised even with her back turned! 25 million people bought this career-defining highlight that proudly stands as a true pop classic, in every possible sense. June 30th, 1986: 30 years on, "it all seems like yesterday, not far away"...Read more ›

A truly fantastic CD Album, "True Blue" contains a terrific collection of songs, including favourites that I've constantly listened to on Youtube up till now, most notably the title track of "True Blue", "Papa Don't Preach", Open Your Heart", "Live To Tell" and "La Isla Bonita". As well as these, I simply love "Jimmy, Jimmy" for the way it pans out like a ballad on foolishly loving a fool, and in contrast to this, I admire "White Heat" for the lyrics "Get up, stand tall, put your back against the wall, coz my love is dangerous"; it seems to show that love can be as dangerous as it can be foolish (and more besides), without being overly explicit, which is one of my pet hates. Out of the two bonus tracks, I find that the remix of "True Blue" is just a little odd with the incredibly short yells of "Hey!" and laughter, but otherwise it's still good. I particularly love the remix of "La Isla Bonita"; the extended music, coupled with chants of the title lyrics and those of "Spanish lullaby" are wonderfully haunting and make me wish that I was wearing her red flamenco dress while sitting next to the gorgeous Spaniard who plays the guitar on her Youtube video. I am very happy with this purchase; it came in great condition and bang on time along with my other Album of "Confessions on a Dancefloor" and is great to listen to.

As I did with my review of Madonna's first album (remastered), I will start with comments on the actual track list, followed be comments on the digitally remastered version.

TRUE BLUE, in my mind, is probably Madonna at her most inspirational. Other flashes of excellence like RAY OF LIGHT and LIKE A PRAYER may indeed receive mention, but it is this album that will always peg Madonna as a serious and brilliantly gifted artist. Five songs were released to great success internationally, viz. "Live To Tell", "Papa Don't Preach", "Open Your Heart", "True Blue" and "La Isla Bonita". Moreover, "White Heat" was a fairly large hit in South Africa, and "Where's The Party" stormed the charts throughout the Far East. It is this latter song which begs to be remodelled and re-released in time for Madonna's upcoming Greatest Hits package (the 2nd "Immaculate Collection"). I personally fail to understand why this song was never released internationally in the first place.

The album opens with "Papa Don't Preach" - a superbly composed, poetic tune that sets a rather gloomy ambience. This is followed by "Open Your Heart", an upbeat, inspiring piece which is full of energy and aplomb. "White Heat" ensues, with a child-like theme akin to "cops `n robbers". We are then confronted by some hauntingly beautiful material in "Live to Tell", probably one of Madonna's strongest and most sincere ballads to date. This seriousness fails to last though, for "Where's The Party" lifts the spirits once again, as the lyrics ask us to "free our souls" and "lose control". Succeeding this wonderful dance tune is the title track, "True Blue", a love-inspired pop song, full of imagination and excited girliness.
