Product Description

Product Description

Certified double platinum by the RIAA. (1/93)


Un peu étouffé par la polémique née autour du très controversé Sex, livre porno soft assez dispensable, l'album Erotica, enregistré en 1992, est injustement sous-estimé. Madonna, loin de s'oublier dans un mol embourgeoisement provoqué par les succès de ses quatre albums précédents, dessine en quatorze titres un panorama de ses influences musicales. De l'utilisation d'un sample de Kool And The Gang à la reprise de Peggy Lee "Fever", elle succombe encore une fois aux charmes de la musique électronique en compagnie du producteur Shep Pettibone. "Erotica", titre sensuellement murmuré sur des rythmes dansants, annonce sa future collaboration avec William Orbit sur l'idéal Ray Of Light. Les ballades dérapent sur des tentatives de deep house "Deeper And Deeper", des rythmes latins débordent de sonorités disco, et le rap se conjugue avec boîtes à rythmes. Erotica montre la Madone plus authentiquement sentimentale que vaguement salace. --Sabrina Silamo --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, angry, emotional all in one disc. May 26 2010
Format:Audio CD
Well, apparently in 1992 Madonna had a lot of controversy regarding this album and it's accompanied SEX book. Bare in mind, I was 2-years-old so I can't remember the up roar over it whatsoever but I have read up on it and it seems like Madonna was totally slaughtered by the critics with this album. The SEX book, Erotica album and the Body of Evidence movie took Madonna's to a all-time career low. Either her true fans stayed with her and supported her or they walked out on her.

Upon first listen of the 'Erotica' album I didn't like it that much. I thought it was kinda boring, not very interesting and that the only stand out tracks were Erotica, Deeper & Deeper, Bad Girl and Rain. The first night I had the album I thought, 'wow, what a waste of $6 bucks'. It would be a few months before I decided to give 'Erotica' a second chance.

Like I said in another review I did not become a Madonna fan until 2000 and I was 10-years-old. I purchased the 'Erotica' album two and a half years ago, in the Summer of 2008. I think it was the night before I read up on all the 'Erotica' scandal and reading all these nasty reviews about the album got me curious. That same night I went to Youtube and found the video for the song 'Erotica'. I must admit, I was a little shocked. The video was quite suggestive to say the least but I couldn't help but find the song edgy and nastily groovy.

Was the 'Erotica' album really all that bad or was it just a bunch of people getting their panties in a twist?

Yep, panties in a twist alright! When I read about the controversy with this album all I heard was this was all about sex, how dirty it was and how Madonna had hit an all time low.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madonna's Sexy Album Of Erotica June 2 2008
Format:Audio CD
Despite the negativity this album received, this album is Madonna's best produced. Its instruments, arrangements and sounds were ahead of its time. Hopefully, someday this will be recognized as a classic.

Album Cover: 4/5
This reverse image is blue, and is very infamous. This cover is cold and unfeeling, but also very sexy, making it fitting to its name. For creativity values however, this is not her best.

1. Erotica: 5/5
This track has some of Madonna's best production. The drums and under-grooves makes this one of the sexiest and most popular dance song of the 1990's. Madonna sexily whispered lyrics with a sweetened chorus really brings the house down.

2. Fever: 5/5
A very good cover with slow-burning lyrics and beats.

3. Bye Bye Baby: 5/5
Cold and distant like a phone message, the final *bleep* really fits.

4. Deeper and Deeper: 5/5
This is one of Madonna's darkest classic masterpieces. This song grooves and shakes. This song's unexpected breakdown in the middle is simply mind-shattering.

5. Where Life Begins: 5/5
So taboo, but oh-so-sexy. This song is about oral sex, and despite the topic, it is really a masterpiece.

6. Bad Girl: 5/5
This is one of Madonna's most underrated ballads, and is one of her beautiful. Her beautiful melody is the best thing about this song.

7. Waiting: 5/5
This song burns, and drags, and is Madonna's best waiting song next to "I Want You".

8. Thief Of Hearts: 5/5
She stole my heart! This song is accusing and full of police sirens. Don't mess with Madonna, or she'll hunt you down.

9. Words: 4.5/5
Madonna talks about all the uses of words, and somehow makes it sound sexy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dita's Erotica April 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
why is this album still out of stock after so many months? the only thing i can think of is that hopefully the record company withdrew it a while ago so they could re-release a remastered version (as they did with her first 3 albums) That would be awesome. And someone please tell them to replace the horrid Did You Do It with Goodbye To Innocence.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST MADONNA ALBUM ALONG W AMERICAN LIFE!!! May 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
well it has been 12 years now since the release of, in my opinion,is the best madonna album to date, why is that? 'cause if you listen the cd right now you will notice that is TIMELESS it could be released right now and it would be fresh and still interesting, i'm a 19 year old guy, and i'm so ashamed that i could'nt enjoy this album the way that it has to be done 'cause i was only 7 years old, well lets talk about the music>
the thing that i will always be upset with Madge is that Bye Bye Baby should've NEVER BE RELEASED as a single, that was the place of my favorite dance tune (From Erotica) from Ms. M of course THIEF OF HEARTS!!! i will never forgive her for that huge mistake! the rest of the album of course its Madonna at her best i give all the tracks a perfect 10 except to bye bye baby you know....

Format:Audio CD
Well here it is almost 12 years after it's release, and i am still listening to this recording as if it came out yesterday.
(...)I love this CD, it is by far my favorite Madonna recording. Containing some of my most favorite Madonna songs , and launching one of her greatest tours " The Girlie Show ".
Don't be fooled by the explicit lyrics label on either this work or American Life, or by the title of this CD. She hardly delves into harsh language and explicit content (...)
Stand out tracks on this CD, are Erotica, Deeper and Deeper, Rain, Why's It So Hard , and Thief Of Hearts.
It truly is a great journey and a very highly overlooked effort from the Pop Pioneer, Lady M. I hope this review helps and you Enjoy this work if you decide to indulge in Madonna's Erotica.

In 1992 Madonna went though a critical low patch. She released a coffee table book of soft core porn pictures of herself and her friends. Read more
