EDITORS’ NOTES

In the lead-up to Like a Prayer, Madonna became a movie star, got divorced, and turned 30—her mother’s age when she died. Themes of family, faith, and personal growth weighed heavily and set the stage for this album’s creative breakthroughs: “Express Yourself,” “Oh Father,” and the unforgettable title track. “Till Death Do Us Part” and “Keep It Together” prove that dance-pop can be intimate and confessional, while “Promise to Try” is a soul-bearing vocal performance that makes every Madonna fan feel like her personal confidante.

madonna at her best

i remember the vinyl offering of this album.... the insert was scented with an herbal aroma (which was madonna's never released perfume, holy water). Though her antics garnered more attention than her music (but when have they not?) this album really showcased the madonna that would be (ray of light, evita, music, american life): a talented song writer who was more than a pop tart dance act. And I love the LIke A Prayer Video.... it has a good message if people would look to that instead of the imagery the speaks to the message.

Madonna's BEST album.

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