4.0 out of 5 stars A Celebration, 1 May 2010

This review is from: Celebration (Amazon Exclusive Version) (MP3 Download)
It's hard to believe that it's over 25 years since Madonna burst onto our unflat TV screens and into our FM/AM radios. Back then CD's were beginning to get off the ground and MTV was in it's infancy.

In the 1980's Madonna was the only musician who could come anywhere near Michael Jackson's stature. Unlike Michael Jackson, she managed to continue her credibility through the following decades, by evolving her music and staying relevant without being hip and trendy.

Naturally the 1980's era is prominent with the likes of Vogue, Borderline, La Isla Bonita, Papa Don't Preach, Into The Groove, Holiday etc.

The early 1990's (perhaps Madonna's least appealing era) is skated over with some of it's better songs such as Take A Bow and Secret. In 1998 she reasserted herself with the lauded Ray Of Light album, containing the smash hits Ray Of Light and brilliant Frozen. The follow up album Music, although not as strong, still produced the noteworthy title track and Don't Tell Me.

I was pleased that the Madonna nugget, Hollywood is also included. We also get one of Madonna's best ever songs, Sorry, from Confessions On A Dance Floor, along with Hung Up with the brilliantly sampled, classic ABBA track.

It's no means perfect, I would have loved the likes of True Blue and American Life to have been included and Material Girl and Dress You Up to have been left off. However, all in all very worthy compilation and a good introduction for a new listener.
