Product Description

Product Description

Limited vinyl LP reissue of this 1989 album from the award-winning, multi-platinum selling, trend-setting Pop/Dance diva. Features 'Express Yourself', 'Cherish', 'Like A Prayer' and more. Rhino.


Considered by many to be the Material Girl's most mature effort of the 1980s, Like a Prayer upped the ante of controversy with its gospel-infused title track and the singer's emotional confessions throughout. It also unveiled the hit "Express Yourself", which ushered in the era of Madonna as a "stainless steel sexual icon". Musically, Prayer showcased her burgeoning songwriting prowess, with the beautiful "Oh Father" and the perky pop of "Cherish". Besides a throw-away collaboration with Prince ("This Is Not a Love Song"), the album stands as one of her strongest works, eschewing the strong dance beat influences from her past--she saved that for the remixes--and concentrating instead on melody and structure. Like a Prayer also gave a hint of things to come with the delightful "Dear Jessie" displaying a maternal side worthy of her name. --Steve Gdula

Format: Audio CD
This is the album that established Madonna as a serious artist. She stopped dying her hair blond, and with that more serious brunette image, made a controversial and religious album. An fact often overlooked is that this is not only her most religious album, it is also one of her best.

Album Cover: 2.5/5
The album cover features Madonna's bellybutton, with a great logo. For some reason, I don't really like it, even though I love Madonna's bellybutton. But the logo is surely her best.

1. Like A Prayer: 5/5
This song is Madonna's most religious, and features some soulful choir in the background that added to this song's religious tinge. This is a fan's favourite, and the melody is enough to guarantee that. This was credited with being Madonna's first song to feature a guitar in years. The lyrics are up to the standards of "Ray Of Light", and the melody is sweet, yet serious enough to make this one of the best-selling song of the 1980's.

2. Express Yourself: 5/5
This is Madonna's best self-power anthem. Its strong vocals and bouncy beats makes this one of the best dance songs on this record.

3. Love Song: 4/5
Although lots of people don't like this Prince duet, I actually enjoyed it. It fit with the rest of the record, yet it is different enough to be interesting. The interesting choice of instruments and layout only added to its charm.

4. Till Death Do Us Part: 4/5
This song is filled with hate and vengeance, yet it is also filled with love and sadness. It tells of Sean Penn and Madonna's marriage at the time, and they soon divorced. Its electronic beats and Madonna's non-feeling voice somehow made this song work, and the same thing happened with Rihanna for "Umbrella".

Like A Prayer is her best work of the 80's and her most personal to date. Overall it's her 2nd best album, next to the 1992 Erotica. The album is filled with 11 tracks and was released in the March of 1989. After over a year of no releases, Madonna returned stronger than ever with this album. It was hard to believe that only 4 years ago, there was belief that she would be forgotten in a year.
I. Like A Prayer: This is the song whoch made me a Madonna fan. I first heard this song around the end of 1992 when I was only 3 years old. I saw it with the controversial video. The video features the legendary scene of Madonna dancing in a field of burning crosses, kissing a black Jesus in church, and witnessing the murder of a woman. Pepsi had to pull it's commercial that used the song and dropped Madonna and the sponsorship for the Blond Ambition Tour. The song remains her most different work. Madonna has never mada a song quite like this one and probably will never make a song like this again. Like A Prayer is her best song ever. The choir adds to the great sound of the song. Like A Prayer was the first single off the album and flew to No.1 around the world with the album. It was also her first single to go platnum. 10/10
II. Express Yourself: The second single off Like A Prayer is remembered mostly for it's million dollar video which takes place in a factory with Madonna at the head. The song itself is great and energetic. The single went to No.2 in the U.S and No.5 in the U.K. Although it didn't hit No.1 it was still extremely successful. 10/10
III. Love Song: I don't like this song. The worst song on the album. It's too slow and too long. After a while you'll start to wonder just when it will end. 1/10
IV. Till Death Do Us Part: A song that's about her failed marriage with Sean Penn.

It is unfortunate that so many people judge Madonna by her image rather than her music. Even among those who listen to her music, some quickly spot her limited vocal range and instantly decide that she can't be any good. All those people are missing out on one of the finest - as well as one of the most successful - singers in the history of pop music. Although this album is not my favorite Madonna album, it is the kind of album that only Madonna could have recorded. Perhaps more than any other, it shows why Madonna should be taken seriously as a singer-songwriter of true quality.
The album yielded four top five UK hits, these being Like a prayer (which made number one), Express yourself, Cherish and Dear Jessie. In the USA, Dear Jessie was apparently not released as a single but Oh father and Keep it together both were. Oh father was not originally released as a UK single, but made the UK top twenty in 1996 following its release to promote the compilation, Something to remember. On the assumption that you are familiar with most of these songs, I'll focus on the others.
Love song (a duet with Prince that the two of them co-wrote), although interesting in its own way, does not quite live up to its billing. You would think that a duet featuring the two hottest pop singers of their day would be an automatic choice for a single. It wasn't even released as a single because there are several other songs that are stronger - actually, all the other songs are stronger except Act of contrition, the brief final track that features Madonna talking over the reversed tune of the title track.
Till death do us part is a very sad song about a violent marriage, but with an up-tempo melody that hides the real meaning of the song. This kind of paradox is not unusual in pop music.
