Product Description

Amazon.ca

Madonna's never really been a musical trendsetter; she's a trend champion. She's always felt an affinity with underground culture, but not until her soul-searching trip-hop breakthrough Ray of Light had this love been the sole mainstay of her albums. On Music, she's inducted the cool funk of Parisian electro-pop as the latest addition to her musical court, abruptly closing the chapter of the movement's niche status. Here, French DJ Mirwais Ahmadzai takes on the majority of production credit, with Light's William Orbit billed on two tracks; the result is a collection of songs that often links arm-in-arm with Franco-techno groups ranging from Daft Punk to Air.

Madonna relinquished unprecedented production control on Ray of Light, which resulted in the best album of her career. On Music, she does the same, dividing the CD into three distinct voices. Orbit's train-track-clacking drum loops churning under citrusy trance ("Runaway Lover" and "Amazing") shimmer for the headphone set. When Ahmadzai diverts from his pure-play French-style club burners ("Impressive Instant" and the title track), he employs several temporarily fashionable gimmicks such as vocoder effects ("Nobody's Perfect") and spacious keyboard work combined with acoustic guitar ("I Deserve It"). Lyrically, Madonna's introspection and love songs are some of her most intimate. Given the surrounding context of the album, "I Deserve It" is an outright folk song, and on "Don't Tell Me," she forgoes precisely enunciated singing for the aching plead of an emotive R&B crooner. For a second time, instead of exploiting an of-the-moment subgenre, she immortalizes it. And in doing so, she simultaneously draws massive mainstream attention to a deserving class of dance music and raises the bar for Top 40 pop. --Beth Massa

5.0 out of 5 stars MADONNA RULES THE WORLD Oct. 1 2000
By JGC
Format:Audio CD
MUSIC is Madonna's very best album in years (the single and the album are both #1!!!). It has a very unique sound because it sounds really modern and new age as well as earthy and very nostalgic. MUSIC picked up where RAY OF LIGHT left off mixing electronica tunes with a beautiful voice. Here's my favorite tracks on the album: MUSIC -Reminds me of some of her older songs (like INTO THE GROOVE or EVERYBODY), very danceable, very fast and enjoyable to listen to. IMPRESSIVE INSTANT - This has to be my favorite track on the entire album, very modern sounding (tons of electronica!), it reminds me of the theme-song for Josie And The Pussycats. Madonna's voice on this track sounds especially high and beautiful. AMAZING - Really beautiful song w/ lots of great-sounding background music, sounds like a slower version of BEAUTIFUL STRANGER. CYBERRAGA -This song is only on the MUSIC single (and the Japanese album) but I really love it and think it should have been on the album. Madonna sings and chants in Indian and reminds us that a 'material girl' can do more that just catchy dance tunes. You go girl! So even if you're not a Madonna fan I recommend MUSIC to you because you will really enjoy it. In the year 2000 Madonna really does rule the world!! Music brings the people together...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Madonna Album Ever! March 5 2011
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I admit I may have a personal bias regarding Madonna's "Music" album. Released in October 2000 and maintaining a high profile for nearly a year after that thanks to three big hit singles, this album quickly became my favorite Lady M album ever. It didn't hurt that its reign coincided with the happiest and healthiest time in my life.

The first time I heard this album, it seemed like the perfect music for the New Millenium, even better than "Ray of Light". An excellent album in its own right, I found Madonna taking herself too seriously on "Ray", whereas "Music" is more relaxed.

From the opening of Madonna's distorted spoken passage to the electronic blips and bleeps and stops-and-starts, the title track becomes one of her instant dance classics like "Into the Groove" and "Vogue".

The electronica sound reaches its apex on the darker "Impressive Instant" and throbbing "Runaway Lover".

For me, the album really kicks off with "I Deserve It". The surprisingly effective fusion of country-folk and electronica is most-evident on this song as well as the final cut, the equally beautiful and introspective "Gone". Of course, "Don't Tell Me" was a huge Top Five smash and the Thunderpuss mix may well be my favorite Madonna remix ever.

The opening of "Amazing" makes me feel as though I'm walking through a dream until the razor-sharp guitars slash through and that irressistible beat kicks in. I know many fans call this a rip-off of "Beautiful Stranger", but I love the lyrics and Madge's delivery on "Amazing" even more.

If I had to pick a favorite track from this album, it would be a close call between "I Deserve It", "Amazing" and "Nobody's Perfect", but the latter would win out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor copy Jan. 14 2011
By Seeker
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I loved this album on CD but it was very bright. The vinyl version includes American Pie which is not a personel favourite. Anyway the sound quality of the Vinyl is not great but not bad, what really ticked me off was the vinyl quality for a new record there was a lot of surface noise poor vinyl maybe recycled.

On "Music", Madonna's continues on the path set by her last CD, "Ray of Light", yet the result is anything but repetitive. On "Ray of Light", Madonna took on the limp genre of techno music, a world where generic fast beats back up meaningless lyrics and artists rarely outlive one hit wonder status. Yet on "Ray of light", with beautiful and unique beats produced by Mirwais Ahmadai, Madonna proved that techno music can be meaningful. She took the techno ditty formula to its ultimate height with the soaring title track and filled songs like "Nothing really matters" with intense emotional meaning. On "Music", Ahmadia is back and along with him his techno beats and Madonna brings a new emotional state to this album. "Music" and "Don't tell me" were the big hits off this album and they're perfectly delightful ditties. Madonna's voice is still reaping the benefits from the vocal lessons she took for the film "Evita" and as on "Light", she's able to manipulate her small range to turn the songs out. Yet it's the other tracks that help this record keep its shine years later. On "Paradise" Madonna indulges herself in over dramatic speeches in both French and English but somehow it works and the playfully delivered chorus "your paradise is not for me" proves again that for all her consumerist shallowness, there is more to Madonna. "Gone" also shows great strength, as Madonna soulfully sings about following your dreams. What really made "Light" and "Music" so interesting and artistic, was the deep regret Madonna reveals. There's something very imploring and even human that as she enters her 40s, Madonna regrets some of the shock and scandal she indulged in at the beginning of her career. Read more ›
