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

Customer Reviews

This is definitely one of Madonna's best albums.
Dance Floor Junkie
Madonna's "Like A Prayer" album was one of the very best records of the 80's and certainly the very best record Madonna has ever released up to that point.
JGC
I loved earlier Madonna efforts, but "Like A Prayer" is the singers best song.

Like a Prayer could very well be Madonna's most important album; marked by maturity, honest emotional content, superior musical form and style, and overall quality, it is a remarkable achievement by an artist whose earliest work was dismissed by some as throwaway pop. Perhaps no other album I own starts off as strongly as this one. Like a Prayer and Express Yourself make one heck of a one-two punch. This is the Madonna I like the most--brave, strong, unafraid of controversy, and willing and able to rock your world. Personally, I found the controversy over Like a Prayer and its video to be quite overblown, but it certainly did nothing to hurt album sales. The gospel background vocals gives the song a powerful, full sound that only reinforces the driving beat and mass appeal of the song. Express Yourself is a Madonna statement song--Madonna knows all about expressing herself, and the song does inspire you to be yourself and let others know what you are thinking.
Love Song is a song I can take or leave. At the time, Prince and Madonna were pretty much the king and queen of pop music, and it was really something to hear them team up on a duet. Unfortunately, the song has little substance, and Prince overplays his peculiar, distinctive voice and style. Till Death Do Us Part is, in my opinion, the best song on the album. It has meaningful, important lyrics, yet its tempo makes you tap or sway along with the music; it almost moves too quickly, achieving a perfectly vibrant, energetic pace, and the chorus is just wonderful. Promise to Try is a slower song with beautiful lyrics and a graceful sound, offering yet more proof that Madonna is a real singer with great vocal skills.

First of all I'm not a Madonna fan. When this album came out in 89, me and my buds were all hardcore headbanging maniacs. If anyone even knew I had this album, my life might have been over. Why did I buy it? 1989 was a crazy year for me, (left home on bad terms, bitter/sweet first love relationship, experimentation). Anywho when I first heard the song Cherish, I said to myself 'Wow wouldn't it be great to have someone feel that way about me? Then I heard Oh Father, and I had to break down and buy the record. It's not my kind of music, but it really struck me, and I still listen to it now and then (Hey I still headbang too! ) It's very listenable, I espescially like 'Act of Contrition'. The only dive nose tune is the godawful duet she does with Prince. It's so terrible my finger is on the FF button before it even starts. If not for that one tune, I would have given it five stars.

Madonna has 7 full length studio albums out there, which one to buy first? Well, they're all great discs, excluding the dated and naive debut. While Like A Virgin and Ray Of Light are definite contenders, I always like it when an artist takes a risk. Madonna did just that in 1989 with Like a Prayer and then did it again in 1992 with Erotica. However, Like a Prayer is tighter, more cohesive than Erotica. Like a Prayer is the first time Madonna expressed deeper emotion in her lyrics, and it was the first time her music was no longer Spice Girlish. Songs about religion, death, divorce, camraderie, childhood, love and self-respect fill this wonderful disc. It's true, as the people before me have attested: There is not a note wasted on this cd, all the tracks are great. Sure, the duet between Prince and Madonna could have been left off, but it adds more flavor to the cd's rich well of songs. It's worth the money to have this in your music collection.

Most of Madonna's very best work is right here. Madonna and Pat Leonard reached the peak of their songwriting partnership with this album, and their work here results in some of Madonna's most stunning material. The gospel-influenced title track (#1 Pop, #3 Adult Contemporary, #1 Dance) puts Madonna on a new level as an artist. She has never been more successful at balancing symbolic social/moral issues with danceable pop as she is here. In fact, the entire album finds Madonna perfecting and expanding upon her trademark sound. There's lots of variety here - the delightful smash "Cherish" (#2 Pop, #1 Adult Contemporary) is one the most perfect pop ditties ever, the bubbly "Dear Jessie" paints a surreal and imaginative portrait of the innocent and universal love of children, and the skittering, spousal abuse-themed "Till Death Do Us Part" is almost uncomfortably chilling - and Madonna handles it all with vigor and aplomb.

Perhaps the most affective and surprising moments on LIKE A PRAYER come from the unflinchingly autobiographical elements that form the core of several songs. This is also the album in which Madonna first really showcased her talent as a top-notch lyricist. Particularly effective is "Promise To Try," in which Madonna sings about the effect that losing her mother had on her. This could have easily sounded trite, but Madonna gives the song a unique twist by writing the lyrics to the child she once was, and from a third person perspective. The lovely, passionately-performed "Spanish Eyes" also avoids cliché with a delicate simplicity that is as beautiful as it is haunting. However, the most beautifully shattering track on LIKE A PRAYER is hands down the breathtaking "Oh Father" (#20 Pop).
