Product Description

Product Description

UK vinyl LP pressing of this 1994 album from the Pop diva. Rhino.

On this, her seventh album proper, Madonna once again shows that one of her greatest talents is her ability to choose collaborators who bring the best out of her. This time around, the producers and co-writers include Bjork, Nellee Hooper (Massive Attack/Soul II Soul) and swing deities Dallas Austin & Babyface (who, amongst a myriad of credits, were the men behind TLC's CrazySexyCool). Mellower in the most part than her previous work, the album includes the usual handful of hits in "Secret", "Human Nature", the title track, and "Take A Bow", a duet with Babyface which is as beautifully glum as anything she's done. While the period between the Erotica/Sex fiasco and her triumphant return with 1998's Ray Of Light was a comparatively lean period commercially for Madonna, this album is up there with the best of her work. --Ronita Dutta

'Bedtime Stories' came out in 1994, I was 4-years-old and still running around in pre-school and didn't know who Madonna was just yet. I officially became a fan of Madonna's in 2000 when she came out with her 'Music' album. I remember dragging my poor mother out to the now defunct record store 'Sam The Record Man'(a store here in Canada) on Boxing Day because my Aunt Becky had given me a gift certificate for Christmas. Of course I had heard songs like 'Like A Virgin', 'Frozen', 'Beautiful Stranger', 'True Blue' and her cover of 'American Pie' and many others.

Unfortunately, when I moved from Oshawa, Ontario to Courtice, Ontario six years ago my copy of the 'Music' album got lost in the move and for a while I just shrugged it off and didn't bother get a new copy until last summer.

My interest in Madonna made it's return about a year ago when I heard she was coming out with an album where she was working with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland because I had been a fan of their work. It really gave me a big kick in the butt to start my own personal Madonna collection so I started listening to sound bites on Amazon and much to my surprise with each album I previewed I realized that I had not only heard a lot of the songs before, but that I had liked them. I'd say I was still a fan of her's but not a real huge fanatic like I am now. Madonna to me at the time - [before I started running down her collection of albums to buy] was more half and half with her. There were songs of her's I heard and liked, but after purchasing her 'Music' album at the time I was young and just wasn't interested in Madonna as much as I was other artists at the time.

The madonna we know from the 80's is long gone, material girl? thats a thing of the past, and as for the erotica phase, well madonna never really went spiraling back into the whole "sex" thing after that. Her cd after erotica gives us a cool refreshing look at the madonna we know today. Not that all her other albums werent immaculate(pun intended, lol), but i like, like a suprisingly few amount of people prefer the madonna of today more than 80s madonna, if u r one of those peopple, this record is probably for u. The first track survival, not the best track, but a fine one, showuing us she'll "live to tell" what shes gone through, and what shell eventually go through. Next up is one of four gems off the cd, i think all the singles off this album are the best songs off the cd, thids song is one of her greatest songs, "secret". Secret is a fantastic song with great vocals and a terrific beat, but still somehow remains /beautiful and soothing. Thew third track although i like, i must say is the worst track on the album, it has something about it that kind of pushes us backward into the erotica phase, which again i thought was good, but also unlike erotcas stuff, pretty [bad] lyrics in some parts of the song. the fourth song Dont stop is a cool dance song, and is one of the best non-single songs on the album along with the softer "inside of me", the fifth track on the album. The next track is " Human Nature", a terrific song with a great r&b feel to it, unfortuanatly it didnt fare very welll in the charts. Forbidden love is the seventh song, in my opinion this is the best non-single song of the entire album, even better than don't stop. Lovce tried to welcome me, track 8, is a soothing tragic love song, a great listen when ur depressed, hehe.Read more ›

Bedtime Stories is one of Madonna's best works (alongside Erotica, Ray Of Light, Like A Prayer, etc). This time Madonna goes R&B, and she does it very well. Survival is a fun song, kind of autobiographical for Madonna about surviving despite what everyone puts against her. Secret is the first single, with a sing along hook that you will always remember. I'd Rather Be Your Lover is a heavy R&B type song that will make you wanna dance, like Don't Stop (which in fact was a single on some radio stations that didnt want to play Human Nature). Inside of Me is a lush ballad which is very dreamy. Human Nature is the controversial song where Madonna faces her critics who are judgemental about everything she does. Forbidden Love is a jazzy type song. Love Tried To Welcome Me is another lush ballad and she sounds wonderful. Santuary is another beautiful song where she sings very well, which leads into the title track Bedtime Story which is a preview in a way of things to come (Ray Of Light), Bjork wrote this song and its the highlight of the album in my opinion. The album closes with Take A Bow, a ballad in which Babyface wrote and lends his voice to.
Let Down Your Guard was the bside to Secret, and everyone says its a bad song but i like it. Its a very R&B influenced song and its fun. This album is basically a light headed fun album, with the occasional sad songs. Its a great album and I highly reccomend it.

Madonna decided to prove the critics wrong when they said her career was over after the Sex book, the Erotica album, and the movie Body of Evidence all came out around the same time, which got a lot of negative responces. Though this album is not her most popular, it still contains some of her best music, and the one of the biggest singles of her career, Take a Bow. The songs on the record that really stand out include Secret, Forbidden Love, Love Tried To Welcome Me, and the haunting Santuary. Notice, all the songs just mentioned are slow to mid-tempo songs. Not bad for a entertainer who's mostly known for her dance-pop tunes. Human Nature is a entertaining song that tells the audience what she has to go through with the critics who bash her for being sexual, when all she's doing is being herself. Bedtime Story is a very creative song which Bjork helped write and produced. The other three songs, Survival, Don't Stop, and Inside of Me help round out the album, Survival being the opening song, Don't Stop being the usual dance song, and Inside of Me being the song that talks about losing someone truly loved. Over all, this is a must have for Madonna fans. If you are a big fan of her dance songs, this album might not be for you, sense most of it is slow, mid-tempo songs.
