iTunes Editors’ Notes

Scented with patchouli in its original release, 1989’s Like a Prayer was Madonna’s most explicit attempt yet at having it all – sexiness, artistic credibility, and dance-floor action—and a terrifically successful one at that. As was usual by now, its singles kept it on the radio for the better part of a year. At the same time, its kaleidoscopic range of styles and statements hung together almost as well as the best Prince albums. (The Purple One himself joined in on “Love Song,” a collaboration that hinted at more future work together that, sadly, never arrived.) The album ends with a religious joke that, while not causing as much controversy as the record’s tie-in soda commercial, shows that Madonna understood what was so funny about all of this.

This is, by far, Madonna's best cd. Great songwriting and a nice variety of songs.

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...
