Biography

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. She 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. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

Editorial Reviews

2 CD edition. Madonna, who has racked up a record 37 top 10 hits as well as seven No. 1 albums (including her last four) on the Billboard Pop Charts, has given her fans yet another opportunity to 'celebrate' her musical achievements. The songs on 'Celebration' have all been remastered and selected by Madonna and her fans. They cover the expanse of the Material Girl's extraordinary career of hits

Customer Reviews

Just great the arrangement is nice and the 2 new songs are really good.
Scott E. Ebol
'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.
Antoine D. Reid
I want the original album versions only--no edits, no remixes, no video versions.
Jason Stein

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)
08. Into the Groove (12" Version, first appearance on an official Madonna US full-length CD release) (4:45)
09. Like a Prayer (Album Version) (5:43)
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)
-NOTE: This version closely resembles the original music video version, but the short instrumental break that leads into the bridge has been removed at 2:30.
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.
17. Justify My Love (Q Sound Mix) (4:54)
18. Revolver (Album Version) (3:40)

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.

After thinking on this whole "Celebration" thing a day or two I have changed my mind regarding the whole idea of it. My original review is several paragraphs down, so read that if interested. I have come to the conclusion that this whole Celebration thing was a big fat mistake. Madonna was with Warner Bros for well over 25 years. Just think about that folks. That is a looong time to with a label and that is a lot of history, a lot of music and ton of videos. The planning for these releases to me seemed a little rushed and you can definitely tell. This is what I think should have happened:

Comprehensive and COMPLETE singles collection
*ALL of her singles, US and overseas releases,
remastered. Much like the Ultimate Michael
Jackson box set released a few years back,
complete with alternate mixes of the tracks

*Collectible booklet of lyrics to all songs

*She is the most photographed woman in the
world so why not a swanky collectible booklet
of rare and iconic images

Comprehensive and COMPLETE video and live performance collection
*ALL of her videos, US and overseas releases,
beautifully remastered video and sound

*ALL of her concerts: Virgin Tour, Who's That Girl
World Tour, Blond Ambition Tour, The Girlie Show,
Drowned World Tour, Reinvention Tour, Confessions
Tour and finally the fabulous Sticky & Sweet Tour.

A much better tracklisting...
In my eyes this whole Madonna "Celebration" album should have been a tribute to the Queen of Pop and to show how far she has come in the Music Industry. The way it should have been (see below)

DISC 1
1-Everybody
2-Burning Up
3-Holiday
4-Lucky Star
5-Borderline
6-Like A... Read More

which Madonna song should have been released officially as a single?
Are suggesting album cuts that were not promoted as singles?
if so, my choices would be: Why's It So Hard (1992), Forbidden Love (2005), Easy Ride (2003), Inside of Me (1994), Waiting (1992), Think Of Me (1983), Spanish Eyes (1989), I Deserve It (2000), Survival (1994) all had the potential to... Read More

Madonna-The Biggest Selling & Touring Female Artist
I don't recall if I've ever seen Madonna introduced as the biggest selling female artist. It's possible that she has, but I don't recall it off hand. I know a lot of her fans like to call her that. Madonna may be a little narcissistic, but I believe she's quite humble as well. It's like the... Read More

madonna out-selling mooriah scarey worldwide
Oh, shut up.

There's no point to the sales wars. I'll say it until I'm blue in the god damn face. Both women are talented, both have accomplished plenty of great things during their respective careers, both have nothing to prove at this point.

Why do people make it out to be such a cirme if you... Read More

Album Wars are Over, Madonna Wins
Not this pointless, useless pissing contest crap again.

Both Mariah and Madonna are incredibly successful. Both have been so for a long time. They have nothing to prove to anyone. People are allowed to be fans of both instead of "choose one over the other and if you choose the one I don't... Read More
