Erotica (Audio Cassette) Import
Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
Limited vinyl LP reissue of this 1992 album from the award-winning, multi-platinum selling, trend-setting Pop/Dance diva.
Un peu étouffé par la polémique née autour du très controversé Sex, livre porno soft assez dispensable, l'album Erotica, enregistré en 1992, est injustement sous-estimé. Madonna, loin de s'oublier dans un mol embourgeoisement provoqué par les succès de ses quatre albums précédents, dessine en quatorze titres un panorama de ses influences musicales. De l'utilisation d'un sample de Kool And The Gang à la reprise de Peggy Lee "Fever", elle succombe encore une fois aux charmes de la musique électronique en compagnie du producteur Shep Pettibone. "Erotica", titre sensuellement murmuré sur des rythmes dansants, annonce sa future collaboration avec William Orbit sur l'idéal Ray Of Light. Les ballades dérapent sur des tentatives de deep house "Deeper And Deeper", des rythmes latins débordent de sonorités disco, et le rap se conjugue avec boîtes à rythmes. Erotica montre la Madone plus authentiquement sentimentale que vaguement salace. --Sabrina Silamo --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Upon first listen of the 'Erotica' album I didn't like it that much. I thought it was kinda boring, not very interesting and that the only stand out tracks were Erotica, Deeper & Deeper, Bad Girl and Rain. The first night I had the album I thought, 'wow, what a waste of $6 bucks'. It would be a few months before I decided to give 'Erotica' a second chance.
Like I said in another review I did not become a Madonna fan until 2000 and I was 10-years-old. I purchased the 'Erotica' album two and a half years ago, in the Summer of 2008. I think it was the night before I read up on all the 'Erotica' scandal and reading all these nasty reviews about the album got me curious. That same night I went to Youtube and found the video for the song 'Erotica'. I must admit, I was a little shocked. The video was quite suggestive to say the least but I couldn't help but find the song edgy and nastily groovy.
Was the 'Erotica' album really all that bad or was it just a bunch of people getting their panties in a twist?
Yep, panties in a twist alright! When I read about the controversy with this album all I heard was this was all about sex, how dirty it was and how Madonna had hit an all time low.Read more ›
Album Cover: 4/5
This reverse image is blue, and is very infamous. This cover is cold and unfeeling, but also very sexy, making it fitting to its name. For creativity values however, this is not her best.
1. Erotica: 5/5
This track has some of Madonna's best production. The drums and under-grooves makes this one of the sexiest and most popular dance song of the 1990's. Madonna sexily whispered lyrics with a sweetened chorus really brings the house down.
2. Fever: 5/5
A very good cover with slow-burning lyrics and beats.
3. Bye Bye Baby: 5/5
Cold and distant like a phone message, the final *bleep* really fits.
4. Deeper and Deeper: 5/5
This is one of Madonna's darkest classic masterpieces. This song grooves and shakes. This song's unexpected breakdown in the middle is simply mind-shattering.
5. Where Life Begins: 5/5
So taboo, but oh-so-sexy. This song is about oral sex, and despite the topic, it is really a masterpiece.
6. Bad Girl: 5/5
This is one of Madonna's most underrated ballads, and is one of her beautiful. Her beautiful melody is the best thing about this song.
7. Waiting: 5/5
This song burns, and drags, and is Madonna's best waiting song next to "I Want You".
8. Thief Of Hearts: 5/5
She stole my heart! This song is accusing and full of police sirens. Don't mess with Madonna, or she'll hunt you down.
9. Words: 4.5/5
Madonna talks about all the uses of words, and somehow makes it sound sexy.

That's not to say "Erotica" is a slice of perfection from start-to-finish as there are a few missteps right from the beginning. The opening number/first single with it's over-the-top explicit references to S&M is the audio equivalent of the whole "Sex Book" fiasco and the fact it's a non-melodic rip-off of the similarly unimpressive "Justify My Love" makes it one of the weakest entries. Also less impressive but still good are "Bye Bye Baby" (the contrast of 1930s victrola-sounding vocals over hip-hop beats is interesting). The looped bassline makes "Waiting" a little monotonous and its spoken passages are too similar to "Justify My Love/Erotica"--but it's more melodic. "Words" sounds like they took the instrumental from the rap section of "Vogue" and built a song around it. Madonna may have been trying for shock value in "Where Life Begins" which was probably inspired by the silly "Sex" book poem "My P*ssy". The irony is that despite it's crude subject matter, the arrangement of "Where Life Begins" is perhaps the most sophisticated-sounding of the entire album with lovely, understated piano and saxophone.Read more ›
