Dark, Funky and AHEAD OF ITS TIME still stands up well today.

Ahead of it's Time, and Underappreciated

Had this album been released today, it would have set the charts on fire. Listening to this album, you often have to remind yourself that this was made around 1992. madonna dwelves into issues which were taboo up until recently, and she does so with steaming backdrops of beat, bass and melody. Whilst some of the depictions in the music are alittle confronting and bold, and sure to offend the narrow minded, madonna isn't afraid to push buttons with this record.

Madge’s Masterpiece

By 1992 Madonna was arguably the most famous woman in the world (perhaps other than Princess Di; but as I said, it’s arguable). It’s difficult to explain to anyone who wasn’t around at the time just how famous she was, how all-pervasive her visage was in both the entertainment and popular media, and how her sexy book, her scandalous personal life and her racy live-shows were reported on prime-time news programs.

Madonna’s continual reinvention, and her maturity as a songwriter, are clearly in evidence here. Gone are the autobiographical and occasionally slightly twee details of her two preceding works. Here we find Madonna the masterful songwriter; sophisticated lyrics matched perfectly with imaginative, innovative melodies. From the vinyl-LP scratches that open the title track, to the finale Secret Garden, each new song surprises and delights, and reminds one just how damn good ol’ Madge was back in the day.

Erotica is a testament from Madonna the superstar at the height of her powers, and none of her subsequent work has come even close to topping it. This album is a must-have for anyone who loves Madonna, or anyone who has just discovered her music and wants to hear her at her undoubted best. It’s simply brilliant.

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she has manipulated the media and the public with her music, her videos, her publicity,...
