I wish I could give this six stars

Ah, Madonna. Of all her incarnations, this one lies nearest and dearest to my heart. As a young gay sprout, I will never forget, in 1990 at the age of 14, sitting on the subwoofer in the back of Suzanne Donovan's jeep (She a senior, I a freshmen. What a privilege!) when I heard Vogue for the first time and I had never experienced ANYTHING like the relentless bass line thumping beneath me. I wasn't quite sure what all this was but I knew I had to have more. Since that time, and after Vogueing in numerous performances, I still consider this to be Madonna absolutely on top of her A+ game. Even after almost 20 years (gulp) the glamour is still wholly compelling.

I'm Speechless

While "Vogue" was the reason most people purchased "I'm Breathless," those who did had to be impressed by what is possibly Madonna's most solid "conceptual album" ever. This is the album that proved once and for all that Madonna can sing when she wants. Three of the songs were penned by Stephen Sondheim and as any musical theater buff can tell you, Sondheim songs are among the most difficult to sing. Madonna is nearly pitch perfect on the gold-digger anthem MORE, the torch song SOONER OR LATER and the heartbreaking WHAT CAN YOU LOSE. Standout tracks that showcase Madonna's surprisingly impressive range are: HE'S A MAN, BACK IN BUSINESS, and NOW I'M FOLLOWING YOU. I'd always been a Madonna fan prior to this but this version of Madonna thoroughly impressed me. No one could make a '40's inspired tune like "Hanky Panky" a top ten hit. No one, but Madonna.


most people do not realize that most of madonna's albums are "concept" albums, this being no exception. that being said, it's very easy to dismiss this cd as bad if you do not accept the concept. it is written and sung from the personnae of breathless mahoney, with the feel of songs from the '30s and '40s. if you accept that this is essentially the cd madonna would have made if she were around back in the '30s (except for vogue), and judge it based on what she was going for, i think you'd see how good (and rather brave) she was for making and succeeding in her attempt.

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,...
