Madonna: The Sticky & Sweet Tour Trailer

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

Limited edition clamshell box contains 11 CD's in mini LP sleeves. As the world's biggest selling female artist of all time Madonna is not just the Queen Of Pop but one of the most influential artists on modern music. Since her debut album, released in 1983, she has worked tirelessly to reinvent herself and her music through three extremely successful decades and has built a huge and dedicated fan base worldwide. Madonna - The Complete Studio Albums (1983 - 2008) is an amazing 11CD collection featuring all of Madonna's studio albums from the first 25 years of her legendary career. Housed in a clamshell box, with albums in paper sleeves, this is a brilliantly compact set and a perfect way to own Madonna's amazing catalogue at a fantastic price. (The set includes the remastered and expanded versions of Madonna, Like a Virgin and True Blue). Warner.

This very set makes me thank the high heavens that Madonna left Warner Bros. From the very tacky, uninspired cover all the way down to the CD's themselves, this set has zero to no appeal to any longtime Madonna fan.

With that said, this set is not the complete studio set as it is missing Madonna's 1990 studio album I'm Breathless, containing one of the biggest worldwide hits of her career, Vogue. Some will argue that this is a soundtrack release but ultimately only includes four songs from Dick Tracy while the rest were inspired by the Breathless Mahoney character. How can you have a "Complete Studio Albums" box-set and leave out an album that contains, arguably, the biggest hit of her career? That's not the only hit that's missing for you casual fans that are considering this purchase.
You will also not get:
Justify My Love
Into The Groove
Who's That Girl
Causing a Commotion
You Must Love Me
I'll Remember
This Used To Be My Playground
amongst many more glaring hits.

I am aware that many of these songs mentioned were soundtrack songs or greatest hits songs, etc, but this goes to show that Warner had an opportunity to include a bonus disc or an extra DVD/Blu-Ray for that matter to make this a complete collection. I know that's asking for too much here so I am going to pull back and just discuss what IS included.

So what you do get are 11 Madonna albums in their original form except her first three albums. The first three Madonna albums, Madonna, Like A Virgin and True Blue went through a remastering process in 2000 which was impeccable from a sound perspective.

Simple put, this is an incredible amount of quality music at a fantastic price. And, like the review title says, this is perfect if you've only had a taste of Madonna and would like to dig a little deeper than say "Celebration" or any of her other hits compilations or, like me, you're an all out Madonna geek and you try to snap up all of her output for your collection. The five star rating for me is, again, based simply on this amazing body of musical work, but, no matter who you are, this packaging is somewhat disappointing. The compact size of the case is an absolute plus and no doubt contributed to the low cost of the final product, but Warner Music could've absolutely put a hair more effort into this particularly given that M is an artist who has consistently put a lot of thought and design into her album art. The clamshell case is a matte finish heavy card sleeve which can get damaged and scuffed a little too easily and the print quality on many of the card sleeves is a bit muddled looking. Funnily enough Warner Music Europe's repressing of her first 5 studio albums on vinyl have the same substandard print quality on their sleeves so perhaps in their rush to capitalize on the release of "MDNA" a few corners got cut. Personally, I would've preferred a more substantial outer packaging, and then perhaps glossy finish card sleeves, but, hey, that's just me. As most other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of important Madonna music not included here, including "Vogue", "Crazy for You", "Into the Groove", "Beautiful Stranger", and the Oscar winning "You Must Love Me" from "Evita" just to name a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Divorce Box-Set March 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a cheap and cool way to get all of Madonna's albums in a compact package that doesn't take up nearly as much shelf space as owning all 11 individually-cased CD's. I call it the "Divorce Box-Set" because my ex kept all the Madonna albums when we separated. : )

There's not much point in reviewing the albums, because most people know what they're in for, but it's worthy to note that both the Erotica, and Music CD's each contain a single bonus track ("Did You Do It?" on the former and "Cyber Raga" on the latter). They're not stellar songs, but it's neat to have them if you're a collector. As for the packaging... each CD has a cardboard sleeve much like a miniature LP. All 11 albums are stacked (loosely) in the outer box. It's about the thickness of an old double/quadruple CD case... ala Billy Joel's Greatest Hits Vol 1 & 2, or Prince's Emancipation release. Not bad for 11 albums. And the price has even decreased since I purchased it, which makes it an awesome deal for anyone who wants all of Madonna's studio albums.

I would have been willing to pay a little more to have the 3 compilation CD's included (Immaculate Collection, Something to Remember, and GHV2) but, I'm sure to many that would be repetitive.

Great idea. 'Glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great collection depending on who you are April 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It seems by the reviews here that many Madonna purists are quite disgruntled by this collection. But, if you're a fan but not a fanatic, have an appreciation for Madonna's talent and music but haven't yet purchased most of her albums, here's a great opportunity for a nice collection of her studio albums for a reasonable price. It's actually quite nicely put together. I suppose either you like the box or you don't, but it seems decent enough and opens nicely to reveal each disc in a sleeve that matches the original album's cover art front and back. The discs themselves seem to be the original artwork if you were to buy each CD individually. No, you don't get the liner notes for each album, but, for the vast majority be honest -- don't you look at the liner notes perhaps once, then seldom, if ever, again? So it's not a terrible omission and it allows the cost of this nice collection to remain affordable. True, it would be nice if someday a grander box set could be released that includes all of Madonna's albums, not just the studios, in addition to some cool extras and art in line with Madonna's innovative style, but for the purpose of what this set is, it's a good idea and just what I was needing. Ever since Madonna's Super Bowl performance I got reinterested in her music and realized there were many of her albums I was missing, so this came along at just the right time. Whether Madonna herself would approve, who knows.

Waste of time/money.
I agree, a total waste of money. What would be the incentive for her fans to purchase this set. We all own all of her CDs anyway.
