This is the perfect way to hear Madonna: no album filler, just one hit after another. As a singles artist, she works wonders: quick, danceable tunes that are occasionally "controversial" but never set out to change the world (and don't). The Immaculate Collection begins with her earliest work ("Holiday", "Borderline") and matures from there ("Papa Don't Preach", "Like A Prayer"), ending in 1990. The highlight is the inclusion of "Justify My Love", a track recorded specifically for this compilation. One caveat: since Madonna is a true video artist, it'd be even nicer to "see" these songs. --Rob O'Connor

This record was the first Madonna album I bought , and I have been a fan ever since!! This woman has to be one of the most influential artists of the eighties , ninties , and the new millenium. She always re-invents herself , reflecting where she is in her life , what issue she wants to tackle , and what it is she wants to say. The album covers her first four studio albums : "Madonna" , "Like A Virgin" , "True Blue" , and "Like A Prayer". Songs she did for movie soundtracks are thrown in the mix also. Such as : "Vision Quest" , "Desperately Seeking Susan" , "At Close Range" , and "Dick Tracy".
"Madonna" was the first album she recorded. It was released in 1983 and included the hits : "Holiday" , "Lucky Star" , and "Borderline". Madonna was a busy gal during this period. She filmed her first two films : "Vision Quest" and "Desperatley Seeking Susan". That meant two more hits were released : "Crazy For You" and "Into The Groove".
"Like A Virgin" , her second album , included the hits : "Material Girl" and the title track. A year after the record was released (in 1984) , she went on tour. And met Sean Penn , they married that same year and that was what inspired her third studio album , "True Blue". In 1986 , songs like "Papa Don't Preach" and "Open Your Heart" shot straight to the top of the charts.
Sadly , they divorced in 1989 and Madge wrote , recorded , and released her fourth studio album , "Like A Prayer". Her Blonde Ambition tour was launced a year later in 1990. Performing hits like : "Express Yourself" , "Cherish" , and "Vogue" , Madonna lit up the stage and released the legendary film that documented the backstage view of that concert : "Madonna : Truth or Dare?".

By 1990, Madonna had scored an impressive string of hit singles that few artists have ever matched. By this time, she collected 25 of the 49 hit singles she has scored since 1983. And while it does leave some stuff out, it's a brilliant collection.
"The Immaculate Collection" contains many Madonna favorites, from "Like A Virgin" to "Material Girl" to "Like A Prayer". These songs, along with "Open Your Heart", "Cherish and "Express Yourself", are among the greatest songs in popular music. Anyone who deosn't like these songs does not have a good ear for good music. Also, there's a few not so recognized songs included here, like the beautiful ballads "Crazy For You" and "Live To Tell" as well as the eerie "Rescue Me"
As I said earlier, the immaculate collection does leave some stuff out, and only one of these omitted songs failed to make the top 10. The songs not included here are:
"Angel" (number 5)
"Dress You Up" (number 5)
"True Blue" (number 3)
"Who's That Girl" (number 1, the most telling omission)
"Causing A Commotion" (number 2)
"Oh Father" (number 20, the song that broke her top 10 streak)
"Keep It Together" (number 8)
"Hanky Panky" (number 10)
Still, what's here is an amazing legacy of music created in such short time by an artists who remains an icon of the 20th century and an influence on so many musicians. Purchase this today.

I've always known who Madonna was (flashy, controversial, famous for being famous), but I never understood why. I'm 18 and I was curious about this so-called "Pop Icon", so I purchased this CD. I was astounded. After so many years of being a famous face, we tend to forget why a person becomes famous in the first place (Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson), we forget their genius. After listening to this album, I finally realized why this woman is so loved and idolized, she is truly deserving of all her hype. Her songs are just pop perfection. They are everything pop music "MUST" be, and have become individual anthems. The title, first of all, is the perfect title for this album simply because you begin to realize, as you listen, that this woman is a gift to the art of music from heaven above. Songs like "Holiday", "Cherish", "Into The Groove", and "Like A Prayer" are pure treasures. All the songs are treasures that should always be remembered. For the first time in my entire life of being a music listener, I can't decide on a favorite song from an individual artist. They are "all" that good. If you love pop, and divas, or if you're a music listener in general (no matter what genre you listen to) this is one album to have in your collection. Trust me, you won't regret it.

In the eighties, pop music reached a high point it would never reach again. And one of the finest pop musicians of the era was Madonna. I have never been too crazy about female musical artists, but Madonna is a huge exception. For two decades she has been dishing out pop music that stands the test of time. And, like any popular artist, she released a hits compilation. How does the so-called Immaculate Collection measure up? Read on and find out.
PROS:
-Let's say you're one of those people who listens to your local eighties music station, and you've heard a number of Madonna songs you like, but you don't want to shell out cash for all of her albums. The Immaculate Collection is a great alternative! Just about all of her big eighties solo hits (Like A Prayer, Material Girl, Vogue, La Isla Bonita, and many others) can be found here.
-You also get a number of underrated masterpieces that were never hits - but should have been.
-This compilation is readily available in a number of stores.
-This compilation is a good value. It's relatively inexpensive, and you get seventeen songs on one disc!
CONS:
-Many of the songs are EDITED! WHY!? Many artists put edited/altered versions of their big hits on their hits compilations, and sadly Madonna has proven to be no exception.
-Where's True Blue? IT WAS A HUGE HIT!
-This only covers Madonna's eighties stuff, so you don't get any of her modern hits like Music (there's a Greatest Hits Volume Two, but THIS is the better compilation by far, in terms of the quality of the material present.)
OVERALL:
If you're a casual fan of Madonna's eighties material, The Immaculate Collection is just what you need. It's not an immaculate compilation, but it's still a good one nonetheless, and recommended to all casual Madonna fans. And if you only get ONE Madonna hits compilation, make it THIS one, and not Greatest Hits Volume Two - the new one just doesn't capture her in her prime the way this one does.
