This is my favourite Madonna album. She once said that everything before confessions on a dance floor was crap.. I think she got it backwards. Nothing fails is my absolute favourite song on this album but there are so many to choose from!

In writing this review, I am able to understand how some fans feel frustrated and say that no matter what, Madonna can't win. On the one hand, "Ray of Light" is perhaps her greatest artistic achievement and the point in which she was finally able to solidify herself as a genuine "real player" in the music biz--but while I admire this album for its' artistic merits and innovative use of electronica, I can't say it's one of my favorites by her because it's simply not FUN like alot of the rest of her catalog. I think it's best to say you need to be in a certain frame of mind to truly appreciate "Ray of Light". This is Madonna as Earth Mother--no dominatrix gear, Marilyn-bleached locks or feather boas. This is the point where she officially entered the second phase of her career (fans and critics definitely split her legacy into pre-ROL and post-ROL categories); the lyrics have her reflecting on past mistakes and regrets and future hopes--all this introspective insight no doubt brought on in the wake of Lourdes' birth.

I'm still not a fan of the recent MDNA album save for two tracks, and it's ironic upon revisiting "Ray" that it sounds more age-appropriate for her NOW even though it's fourteen years old already. The fact that most of this material would not seem out on place on contemporary radio is either a testament to the fact that Madonna was way ahead of the curve with this one, or that pop culture has really not evolved much in the last fifteen years.

On paper, it sounds like a hodgepodge but the album is surprisingly cohesive from the dreamlike, otherwordly "Drowned World (Substitute for Love") and "Frozen" to futuristic dance numbers "Ray of Light" and "Nothing Really Matters" to World-Beat flavoured "Skin" and "Shanti/Ashtangi".

Madonna is pure talent. She can sing, dance, act, direct, choreograph, write, photograph and influence fashion. An astute business person, there is really nothing she can't do.
This excellent collection features high caliber songs that are not only fun to dance to, but thought provoking. The title song, "Ray of Light" is truly a masterpiece. I love it! This is without a doubt the best collection Madonna has ever done. I also like the spiritual themes in many of her more recent songs. I have a lot of respect for Madonna, her talent and this collection in particular.
This is such a treat.

Maybe it's where we all are at at a given moment in time, but I went back to Ray of Light after the September 11th tragedy, and I found consolation and grieving both within this album. I feel that each song is a small gem constituting a great piece of work by America's pre-eminent pop star. Next to Britney Spears, Brandy and other wanna-be's, Madonna has the "legs" to remain on the top of her game. But lest we think it's all a cynical marketing ploy, if you follow her own life story, each of her albums is a reflection of her own life journey. I am not sure how Music fits into that picture, but all the previous albums parallel events of Madonna's personal life pretty clearly.
Most of us would agree that Madonna's motherhood had a major impact on her music making at the time of "Ray of Light" and its recording. I feel that her music's generation comes from that experience. That's why the level of feeling is so palpable in a song like Frozen, and the sense of wonder and simultaneous bewilderment come through in the title cut. No matter what you feel about her as a person, the album Ray of Light is an authentic masterwork from the one woman who survived Pop Music's vissitudes and multiple low points in the 80's and 90's, and has lived to tell new and more provoking stories.
I can't help but think that Madonna will be rocking into her 60's, just like the fabled Tina Turner strutted her considerable gifts and wondrous person well into her 60's as well.
Dance on Madonna!

Format: Audio CD
When I first heard this album I found it a bit weird in that it was very, very edgy. Almost like catwalk fashion thats soo fashionable its beyond regular people. Now I absolutely love it. Every song tells a story and tracks like Nothing really matters, Sky Fits Heaven, Frozen, To have and not to hold, Power of goodbye, Little Star, Swim and Skin all create a catchy masterpiece of an album. The first track I still don't like but give the rest of the album a chance because it is absolutely amazing. Nothing like it before, nothing like it since! The album that subtly toke Madonna to that next level... Superstar.

one of the most wonderful albums Madge has ever recorded. full of spiritual grace. With each listen it just grew over me more and more. and of course, her "Frozen" is the song, that always makes me cry. An awesome masterpiece which deserves to be in every collection.
