Product Description

Product Description

Limited vinyl LP reissue of this 1984 album from the award-winning, multi-platinum selling, trend-setting Pop/Dance diva. Features the hits 'Material Girl', 'Dress You Up' and the title track. Rhino.

Madonna's second album was her breakthrough, thanks principally to two gimmicky hits: the sinuous "Like a Virgin," with its taboo-busting metaphor for that fresh, clean new-love feeling, and the cutesy, Betty-Boopsy "Material Girl." Most of the rest of the album, although similarly frothy, is superior to those warhorses, notably the irresistible LP tracks "Over and Over," and "Pretender"--which adds a bit of gossamer delicacy to the mandatory bounciness. "Dress You Up" is a Madonna classic, an insubstantial dance-pop delight bedecked in synthesized bells and replete to the beat with kinky suggestions. And there's a sign of greater depth to come in her cover of Rose Royce's elegiac ballad "Love Don't Live Here Anymore," a heartfelt vocal supported by a subtle, gorgeous arrangement helmed by producer Nile Rodgers and his two key Chic instrumental compatriots, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson. --Ken Barnes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There I was, a shy, geeky spendthrifty 14-year-old. Then along came Madonna and Like a Virgin. Suddenly, I was a total Madonna addict, listening to this album religiously every day, buying every silly teen mag that even mentioned her, and--to the horror of my parents--covering all of my walls with Madonna posters. No other album has ever had such a influence on me. I was still shy and geeky, of course, but I was a changed person. Over the years, my Madonna worship waned but never disappeared. Going back and listening to this CD now, I am amazed at how great it sounds, and I enjoy the memories it stirs inside of me.
No one can deny how huge this album was. It made Madonna a superstar, and it sunk its anchors into both the album and single bestseller charts. The title track was of course a huge hit and represents to me a cultural phenomenon. Material Girl had an even larger impact, and many would argue the song basically defined the decade of the 80s; it certainly helped shape the decade. Dress You Up was just a fun song with a great beat; as things turned out, it was to a certain extent prophetic because Madonna basically did dress up great multitudes of young admirers copying the Madonna look. Angel was another big hit, largely because it was so easy to relate to. Anyone who has ever had a crush on someone knows exactly what Madonna is singing about here. Over and Over also charted, I believe; it lacks the substance of the other songs on the album, but both the words and the energizing music do encourage you to keep going in the face of setbacks. Love Don't Live Here Anymore is the true gem on here, though. I kept expecting it to be released as a single because I really believed it would be a huge hit.

I don't like this album as much her first album, but it is a good listen nonetheless and you can't go wrong with Nile Rodgers' production. This is her first of two diamond releases and it's probably significant in her career because it contains the two songs that made her an icon, her first #1 'Like A Virgin', and 'Material Girl'. Extended versions of these two songs are also on this remastered edition, and I think they're a really nice bonus. Other good tunes are 'Dress You Up', 'Shoo-Be-Doo' and 'Over and Over'. 'Into The Groove' was never stripped onto a CD version of this album in North America, nor is it on this version.

By KaseyG TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 11 2012
Format: Audio CD
Madonna's second album was scheduled for a 1984 summer release but was shelved for the Christmas market so that Sire Records could continue mining hits from "Madonna" the first album, which was still experiencing strong sales due to "Borderline" and "Lucky Star" being in heavy rotation on MTV and the other music-video TV programs. While "Madonna" was an excellent debut and really captured the hedonistic spirit of the New York dance scene in the early '80s, by teaming up with veteran producer Nile Rogers, Madonna delivered my favorite album of hers of the decade (and third fave overall--behind "Music" and "Erotica"). What makes "Virgin" so much better than M's other '80s output is that even the non-singles are terrific, unlike the terrible filler found on "True Blue" like "Jimmy Jimmy" and "Loves Makes the World Go Round".

Rogers shades the album with a deliciously decadent, sophisticated-sounding pop-gloss that is the musical equivalent of silk sheets or expensive chocolates. This is especially evident on the love-gone-wrong numbers ("Pretender", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore") or where Madonna professes her undying devotion ("Shoo-Be-Doo", "Stay"). The production all-around is classy and flawless with lots of gorgeous, plucky strings and razor-sharp drumming.

If anything deserves to sound out-of-place here, it's the opening number. "Material Girl" has Madonna in the Betty Boop mode that would serve her well on later fare like "Santa Baby" and much of the "Dick Tracy" soundtrack. Still a catchy tune over 25 years later, I do admit it's probably my least favorite here due to overexposure. The title track doesn't get near as much airplay on retro stations these days as her other '80s hits, yet it's still one of the decades best female singles IMO.

This is the album that made Madonna a household name, and this is the album that made sure that the world outside of the U.S. know about her too. It redefined music of the eighties and became a classic album, yet it still sounds fresh and entertaining today.

Album Cover: 5/5
Need I say more? Madonna with her sexy dress and lace gloves and that controversial boy-toy belt makes this one of the best and sexiest album covers ever.

1. Material Girl: 5/5
This song is fun and sly, yet not so bratty. It sounds glamorous and fresh. It gave Madonna the nickname that they still call her today, twenty years later. The only thing is that it is sort of embarrassing when someone catches you secretly singing this song to yourself.

2. Angel: 4/5
Although this song is simple and bare, it has a fun beat and oozes mainstream attractiveness. It is simple, yet one of the most uplifting songs on this album.

3. Like A Virgin: 5/5
This is the song that established Madonna as a superstar. Amen. It includes controversial lyrics, and Madonna's voice sounds pure and virginal. However, looking back at the cover, something in her eyes tells you that she lost her virginity long ago.

4. Over and Over: 4/5
This song's simple and uplifting message makes this an awesome sing-along song. It has catchy bridges and a sing-along chorus, what more can you ask for?

5. Love Don't Live Here Anymore: 5/5
Although most people say that Madonna convinced them she can sing with "Live to Tell", this was the song that told me she had a great voice. The haunting strings and anguished vocals are what everyone envies for today.

6. Dress You Up: 4.5/5
This song is a metaphor between fashion and sex. Totally fun, totally sexy.
