5.0 out of 5 stars Madonna Is Truly Blue June 1 2008
Format:Audio CD
Despite of the fact that "Like A Virgin" made Madonna an international superstar, this was the album that convinced the general public that Madonna was here to stay:

Album Cover: 4.5/5
Despite of the fact that it is just a shot of Madonna's head, it is now one of the most recognizable images in the world. Her eyes are closed, in meditation or in sexual splendor, we'll never know.

1. Papa Don't Preach: 5/5
This is Madonna's first political song, and it deals with a teenage mother deciding to keep her baby instead of having an abortion. The strings, the beats, the lyrics and the melodies are catchy and haunting. A perfect song.

2. Open Your Heart: 5/5
This song oozes frustration and sexuality, and the chorus is definitely Madonna's catchiest. The verses are okay, and the bridge bridged the way for the astounding chorus. Another perfect song.

3. White Heat: 4/5
I have always been mystified by this song's title, but the song is extremely fitting and lives up to its name. The song talks about how Madonna's love in "dangerous", and it burns with a sensual sweetness that is mighty fine indeed.

4. Live To Tell: 5/5
This is Madonna's first haunting ballad, and while it is not as emotional as "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", it has a maturity and a agelessness to it that inspires many generations of musicians.

5. Where's The Party: 4/5
Definite crowd pleaser and a club favourite.

6. True Blue: 4.5/5
Madonna's love song to Sean Penn. Very cheesy, but also very sweet. It is inspired by early girl-groups and sounds like a classic the moment it was released.

7. La Isla Bonita: 5/5
This was Madonna crossover single in France.

True Blue (1986.) Madonna's third album.
By the time 1986 rolled around, Madonna had achieved a pretty high amount of popularity. Although her 1983, self-titled debut LP failed to sell well at its time of release, her sophomore effort Like A Virgin won over a massive audience. Not surprisingly, following the releases of those two albums, people waited patiently for the next Madonna album. And in 1986, her third LP, True Blue, was released. How does this one measure up? Read on and find out.
Madonna's third full-length LP consists of nine tracks total, and of these nine cuts, FIVE of them went onto become massive Madonna hits! That's over half the album! The title track is the kind of catchy pop tune that you've come to expect her to deliver, and it's not surprising that it has become a huge hit and remained such over the years. The opener, Papa Don't Preach, was yet another hit. There are some excellent lyrics in this song, and the instrumentation only adds to the experience. Perhaps the best instrumentation on the album comes from another one of the hits, Open Your Heart. This is another extremely catchy song, and one of Madonna's finest. Not surprisingly, eighties stations still play it on a regular basis. The slow-paced pop ballad Live To Tell is also excellent. And, of course, we have La Isla Bonita (that's Spanish for The Beautiful Island), Madonna's attempt to fuse her pop stylings with a Latin-flavored sound. This little experiment worked well for Madonna; the song became another massive hit. And then, of course, you have the four songs that were never hits. Not surprisingly, these songs are also excellent. White Heat and Where's The Party are excellent pop-oriented tunes that should have been bigger hits. The same can be said of Jimmy, Jimmy, and Love Makes The World Go 'Round.

5.0 out of 5 stars 40 minutes of pure fun on one CD! June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
After 2 mega-selling albums with 1983's self-titled album and 1984's sometimes imfamous "Like A Virgin", Madonna avoids the third album jinx by releasing her greatest selling album to date at this point in her career "True Blue".
Released in August of 1986, this CD outsold it's two predecessors and it deserved all of the success that it got. Although it's certainly cheesy in some ways, "True Blue" is to me Madonna's album where a much greater maturity took the podium and her voice sounds so much better than it did previously.
While most of these songs like "True Blue" and "Jimmy Jimmy" border on the edge of 1980s bubble-gum pop music this CD is one of my favorites for two really excellent and thought-provoking classic hits which are "Papa Don't Preach" and "Live To Tell". The former while certainly straight-out pop in nature has a very dramatic and pleading sense of urgency and a great orchestral sound to back it up. "Live To Tell" is in my opinion Madonna's greatest ballad and having a really dark yet bright sound with a really dramatic undertone about someone surviving a horrific crime or accident (whatever you call it) and living to tell about it. I really love the haunting keyboard effects and the echoing beat.
"Open Your Heart" is a long-lasting classic with those memorable tinkling keyboard effects but it is really starting to show it's age with those tingling keyboard effects but it's still great to listen to.
I strongly recommend this for Madonna fans because it is just plain fun and people from anywhere on the intelligence scale can really enjoy this album because it's just plain fun and is a great time capsule for a great year in music (In my opinion).
