4.0 out of 5 stars Glee takes on 'The Power of Madonna' [REVIEW] April 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's a bit surprising that our biggest release from Madonna this year besides The Sticky & Sweet Tour CD/DVD comes in the form of a tribute album from the cast of Glee. 'The Power of Madonna' features 7 songs that have been given the 'Glee' treatment. For the most part, the songs arrangements are very close to the original. The episode that features all of these songs centers around Mr. Schuester and coach Sue Sylvester trying to empower the females in the glee club and cheerleading squad by using Madonna's songs. Schuester also tries to teach the guys to respect and honor the girls in the glee club more. It seems only natural that to teach these lessons, Schuester and Sylvester would turn to Madonna's songs. The 7 tracks are mostly from the 1980s era of Madonna's career which means the album really feels peppy, upbeat and pure dance.

The Good: The best part of the album at times is how the 'Glee' versions of these songs stick very close to the originals. At times, it sounds somewhat karaoke only because the arrangements don't stray much from how we're used to hearing the songs. To me, while the 'Glee' versions of the songs plays it safe, it also does well in respecting and showing off the best of these iconic songs. I felt 'Vogue' worked best with Jane Lynch sounding very much like Madonna while tossing in a few Sue Sylvester quips to tie the song into "Glee". There were a few songs that were turned into duets, including the mash-up of "Open Your Heart / Borderline" and "Like A Virgin". The best track of them all is "Like A Prayer" in my opinion because it has a big choir accompaniment, the singing is ridiculously good and like the original, it's performed with great depth and conviction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glee Rocks Madonna! July 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had two reasons to be excited for this release. First and foremost, I am a major Madonna fan. Secondly, yes, I very much enjoy "Glee." It's such a happy, exuberant, and fun show. It's just one of those shows where you sit back and enjoy yourself. After a hard day at work, something like "Glee" is just what I need. So when it was announced that they were going to do a Madonna-themed episode, I was ecstatic. Singing along to whatever Madonna songs they wound up doing was going to be a treat.

The episode was fantastic. It was really fun to spot all of the references to Madonna, and the episode was just flat-out good in and of itself. But this is a review of "The Power Of Madonna" cast album, not the episode, so let's get started. Do they do better than Madonna herself? Of course not. There was no way that was going to happen. There is however a fun factor to this album that makes it a joy to listen to. Lea Michele really shines here, as usual. I did love her take on "Borderline" (one of my all-time Madonna favorites.) Amber Riley and Chris Colfer perform admirably on "4 Minutes," which I slightly prefer to Madonna and Justin Timberlake's version. It's a little more brassy and feels slightly less "produced" than the original version. I love Madonna's version too, but this version is slightly better, I feel. Johnathan Groff does a fantastic version of "Burning Up," which I guess is only available on Itunes. Shameful, since he sounds fantastic. This is just a fun album to listen to, and I do recommend it. Madonna fans will hopefully just get a kick out of this.

1. Express Yourself: This sounds a tad pedestrian to me. It's good, but awfully expected. It's just okay. (3/5)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Souvenir of Glee Episode April 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The performers of Glee are second to none. They shine, week after week with excellent vocals, choreography and loads of charm. The latest one, The Power of Madonna realy shines. Creator Ryan Murphy has set it up well having Sue force the principal to play Madge's songs throughout the school all day which helps to make the breaking out in Madonna songs more believable. This CD contains all the performances from that episode and is SO good I long for more when its over. If you missed the episode or can't be near a video screen, this should satisfy. This cast could record an hour long Madonna tribute CD and never be boring or corny. Lea Michele is my favorite due to her wide range which helps to sell all her solos. She shines brightest on Like a Prayer. Chris Colfer usually seems to sing only high soprano but on 4 Minutes we get to hear his wider range. And he sings as strong as belter Amber Riley. As funny as Jane Lynch was in the recreation of the Vogue music video, her vocals are definitely good enough to warrant a listen. She holds her own alongside the New Directions cast. Also love hearing Matthew Morrison and Jayma Mays on Like a Virgin. Though he's the stronger vocal they work as well vocally as they do at acting together. Cory Monteith gets better and better but Jonathan Groff makes a welcome addition to the cast. Now there's a male lead as vocally strong as Lea. Could add more variety for those tired of Lea always singing lead....

In short if you love the previous Glee soundtracks, you'll love this one. Now hopefully Ryan Murphy will wait for at least an hours worth of material before releasing the next.
