Album Review

Madonna's "Erotica" single was one of the fastest rising songs in U.S. chart history, zooming to number three in just a couple of weeks, and then zooming back down almost as fast. This was when the public decided that she had gone too far (she had simultaneously released her Sex book) and kick started what has become known as the Madonna backlash, which would subside after her Evita years. That said, "Erotica," and her album of the same name, bear witness to some of Madonna's most interesting and overlooked work. The single comes with seven mixes, most either house or hip-hop. The first is an edit of the album version; the second, a hip-hop mix by Kenlou B-Boy, features a different base line; while the sizzling third mix, courtesy of William Orbit, features alternate lyrics. The fourth and fifth mixes are house mixes (the fifth being a dub mix), while the sixth mix is a jeep beat instrumental, and the seventh, (the "Madonna's In My Jeep Mix"), lays the vocals over the jeep beats. This single packs a satisfying package, especially for fans of her more dance-oriented work, but don't overlook the original album version, which is one of her darkest, most sinister, and most interesting singles in her catalog.
