NOTE: This review looks at only the differences in track versions contained on this retrospective compared with previously issued track versions.

Most tracks on this compilation are album versions, but some are edits which, in and of themselves, have been edited differently. There are also many tracks from The Immaculate Collection, some of which may have been modified slightly for this collection (denoted below).

DISC ONE

01. Hung Up (Album Version)(5:39)
02. Music (Album Version)(3:46)
03. Vogue (From The Immaculate Collection) (5:17)
04. 4 Minutes (Album Edit, no breakdown) (3:10)
05. Holiday (Album Version) (6:08)
06. Everybody (Album Edit) (4:11)
07. Like a Virgin (From The Immaculate Collection) (3:10)

10. Ray of Light (Album Edit) (4:34)
11. Sorry (Album Edit, shorter intro and bridge) (3:59)
12. Express Yourself (Video Version, Edited) (4:00)

13. Open Your Heart (From The Immaculate Collection)
14. Borderline (From The Immaculate Collection)
15. Secret (Album Edit, fades instead of stopping cold)
16. Erotica (Album Edit, Alternate)
-NOTE: This Album Edit (4:30) differs slightly from Album Edit (4:36) found on the original 1992 Erotica Maxi CD single (Maverick/Sire/Warner Bros CD 0-9362-40585-2-6). The edits in the 4:36 version occur at 0:00 and 3:27.

Warner Bros. has released Madonna's third compilation album featuring some of Madonna's biggest hits (fourth if you count the ballad collection 'Something To Remember'). 'Celebration' is a great collection of some of Madonna's best work but as any true fan will attest, this is far from a true 'greatest hits' album. If you are a casual Madonna fan, 'Celebration' is really a good album to pick-up. The main staples --- 'Material Girl', 'Ray of Light', 'Like a Prayer' --- are all present. There are even two new songs. Yet, something feels unsatisfying with 'Celebration' considering there are so many songs that were left off. Considering this is her last release with Warner Bros, I felt much more effort could have been put into making this a true 'celebration' of her music and career over the past 26 years. Instead, it feels like one last attempt made by Warner to make money off Madonna.

The Good: I really like all the effort and attention put into the package design. Warner Bros. definitely stepped up their promotion and art direction on this release -- more so than they have her past few albums. The art designed by Mr. Brainwash is definitely different and more street and while there are no new photos of Madonna, I felt the design really does her justice and features her most iconic looks and styles in a creative manner. I like both of the new songs featured on this edition. 'Celebration' is pure dance and sounds like a cut from "Confessions on a Dance Floor" while 'Revolver' (featuring a small rap by Lil' Wayne) is a mix between pop and urban music, everything "Hard Candy" tried to be but perhaps failed to live up to. To me, the songs are both very good and easily stand out as album worthy tracks.

Format: Audio CD
finally, a 2-cd set from the queen of pop madonna. when she released "the immaculate collection" in 1990, there were some notable omissions. the same thing happened with the release of "ghv2" in 2001.now, as her last hurrah from warner bros, "celebration" is released this 2009. i will review the collection track-by-track. i honestly believe i can give an objective review having collected all her cds and cd singles from her career.

disc one
1. hung up [album edit] (2005) - lead single from "confessions" and was a certified inetrnational blockbuster, this track opens the collection. it would have been better if what was included was a single version, saving minutes of time. diehard or casual fans would be happy already with the single edit.

2. music [album version] (2001) - the single/album version from the 2000 album. in this collection, the track sounded louder, exposing the "pops" and "blips" which were inaudible before.

3. vogue [1990 remix edit] (1990) - the version from "immaculate" but without the q sound mix. longer and more majestic than the original album version of "im breathless," its inclusion in this 2-cd set further solidifies madonna's stand as the queen of pop.

4. 4 minutes [single version] (2008)- lasted only 3 minutes! but this single version will become rare in the years to come. the original album version from "hard candy" is the full version, but this edit is a welcome refresher/collectible to diehard madonna fans.

5. holiday [album version] (1983)- the full album version fans have since 1983. it would have been great if the single version (original or the 1990 single mix) had been inlcuded as the song will not sound repetitive and will leave the fans begging for more.
