Out of print in the U.S.! Import pressing of this 1995 ballads collection from the Pop/Dance diva, which focuses on her sentimental side. Something To Believe in is a must-have for fans since it contains three new tracks plus two tracks previously unavailable on her albums ('This Used To Be My Playground' and 'I'll Remember'). 14 tracks total. Warner.
It didn't take the post-motherhood Ray of Light
to prove that Madonna is a big softie; this collection of ballads and slow jams had already done that. Somewhat confused in intention--the scalding ache of "Oh Father", a 1989 song for her own dad, is shoved between the sex of "Rain" and a version of Marvin Gaye's "I Want You"--this is nonetheless a highly listenable album for those who dig Madonna for her music as much as for her cultural significance. --Rickey Wright
