Our Review

Basking in the glow of new motherhood, a rejuvenated Madonna returned to studio album-making with 1998’s Ray of Light. The Material Girl of the ‘80s was transformed into an Ethereal Woman, wrapping herself in William Orbit’s electronica-influenced production and embracing spiritual lyric themes. As always, though, she kept a grip on the groove, grounding the sometimes spacey feel of the tracks with a firm sense of rhythm. The album’s title tune overlays dense sonic atmospherics upon a relentless beat to mesmerizing effect, while “To Have and Not to Hold” simmers with bossa nova fire. Her ballads are equally strong, particularly the moody “Frozen” and “Drowned World/The Power of Goodbye.” Introspective tunes like “Substitute for Love” display a maturity and depth only hinted at on earlier releases. Ray of Light proved a turning-point in Madonna’s career. With this shimmering, self-revelatory album, she renewed her hip credentials and raised her music to a higher plane.

An Artistic Endeavor Never Truly Matched Again (5 stars)

Empowered from vocal training for Evita and the birth of her first child, Madonna struck artistic gold with her William Orbit collaborating effort. I am naturally skeptical of anything labeled as "new" or "cutting edge" and not a fanatic for any one artist. After listening to "Ray of Light" I was immediately impressed. Madonna and William Orbit seem to connect on a personal level beyond artist and producer, as t

Easily Madonna's Best (5 stars)

Madonna has done so many awesome albums and songs. "Ray of Light" is definitely, if not the, one of the best of her efforts. Every single song on this album is enjoyable. You can't go wrong here.

1. Beautiful trip-hop song with a nice, atmospheric beginning. Great way to start off the album.
2. Catchy. More trip-hop mayhem…it'll make you want to take a trip down to the beach.
3. The most well-known single. A high-energy, catchy

Timless & Innovative-almost 10 years later! (5 stars)

This is one of the best albums I have ever bought. I am still impressed at how great the production still sounds. This is album showcases the genius and true talent of Madonna. William Orbit is the perfect compaion for her. "The Power of Goodbye" is so beautiful-(its message & how the song is written) and incredibly moving. This is the album that made me fall in love with Madonna's music. This is her best album, hands dow

Biography

Born: August 16, 1958 in Bay City, MI
Genre: Pop
Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. Madonna rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common than discussing her music. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she manipulated the media and the public…
