I. Lucky Star
A remake of the classic childrens rhyme. This song is remembered for the video which first showed the world the famous look that is remembered to this very day and began the stuff about her bellybutton, as well as starting the trend of "Madonna wannabees". The song however isn't that good. This was the 5th single off the album and hit #4 in the US and #14 in the UK 5/10
A good song. It's mainly the same as the video version but she also sings some other lyrics that aren't in the video. This was the 4th single off the album and it hit #10 in the US and #56 in the UK. Borderline and Lucky Star were so successful that Madonna moved back the release date of Like A Virgin. 9/10
III. Burining Up
The best song on the whole album. It has a great beat and it never gets boring. The lyrics here also forshadowed all those controversies that were to come "I'm not the same I have no shame I'm on fire". This was the 2nd single. 10/10
IV. I Know It
Out of the 3 songs that weren't singles this is the only good one. The refrain is good in this song.Read more ›
If you have not started a Madonna collection aside from her greatest hits compilations, I recommend you start with this.
No one has bridged club music and mainstream like Madonna has, and she certainly did this this album as it contains her first top-20 hit "Holiday", her first top-10
"Borderline" and her first top-5 "Lucky Star".

10. LUCKY STAR ("NEW" MIX)
The infectious cowbell-and-drum-machine driven "Holiday" remains a dance-floor favorite nearly 30 years later and is known by heart even by non-fans, but the hypnotic "Everybody" surpasses it for sheer dance-floor intoxication. The bland "Borderline" never really grew on me--it sounded a little dated even then. The non-hits "Think of Me", "Physical Attraction", "I Know It" feature fun, synth-heavy '80s arrangements and even in this early stage Madonna shows range. When she goes from pouting "Tell me what I did to you to make you treat me so badly" to scolding "You better, you better" in "Think of Me" or sexily and brazenly challenging her undecisive lover ("What are you gonna do?") in the delightfully futuristic, celestial "Physical Attraction" her delivery is perfect. The real showstopper here is the scorching ode to female horniness that is "Burning Up". In one of her most convincing performances Madonna proclaims her sexual frustration by first simply stating "I can't quench my desire" then in a final desperate confession "I have no shame". Nasty little guitar licks underscore Madonna's heavy panting in this lust-drenched dance-rocker. While the original album cut is the best thing about "Madonna", make sure you get the remastered CD with the Bonus Tracks because the 12" version actually improves on it. Though the guitars are missing, the extra frantic keyboards make up for it and Madonna's vocals are more in the forefront.Read more ›
Album Cover: 3/5
This is easily Madonna's worst cover, her hair is not that good, and she looks defenseless and bare. However, something in her eye convinces you she is more than just the flavour-of-the-month, and boy, is she right.
1. Lucky Star: 4/5
This was the video that introduced Madonna's belly-button to the world. It has a synth-sounding beginning that sounds electric and fresh. This song features the lyrics of a mother goose rhyme, but turns it a hit with a sexy rendition. Overall, the vocals aren't particularly good, the production is a little bit bare, but the personality is there, and that is enough for now.
2. Borderline: 5/5
This song's beginning sounds so familiar that I cannot but think that it's a song I've heard over and over before, but never realized it. It has a great dance beat, and she uses her high vocals to pull this song off as an innocent and plain, but also fun and exhilarating, ride on a roller coaster.
3. Burning Up: 4.5/5
This is perhaps the earliest song of hers that can be described as sexy. Although this is pretty virginal compared to Erotica, Madonna's pants and moans that you hear so often in Britney songs today makes this a simple and enjoyable dance groove.
4. I Know It: 3.5/5
Although her voice is tiny and sharp, it really added character to this song and made it actually enjoyable.Read more ›

Ah the good, old 80s. Madonna's first album still stands as one of her best! The songs are fun with 5 of the 8 being released as singles. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Derek G St John
This reissue is inferior to the original I have from 1983. There is less depth and therefor the sound stage is a little smaller and not as warm sounding, so I can't recommend it. Read morePublished on Jan. 17 2014 by The Seeker

This album is good, it shows Madonna at 20 years old with her girly voice. There are 2-3 classic songs you will enjoy, but only purchase if you are a Madonna fan or else you might... Read morePublished on June 29 2008 by Martine
