Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! Import pressing of this 1995 ballads collection from the Pop/Dance diva, which focuses on her sentimental side. Something To Believe in is a must-have for fans since it contains three new tracks plus two tracks previously unavailable on her albums ('This Used To Be My Playground' and 'I'll Remember'). 14 tracks total. Warner.

It didn't take the postmotherhood Ray of Light to prove that Madonna is a big softie; this collection of ballads and slow jams had already done that. Somewhat confused in intention--the scalding ache of "Oh Father," a 1989 song for her own dad, is shoved between the sex of "Rain" and a version of Marvin Gaye's "I Want You"--this is nonetheless a highly listenable album for those who dig Madonna for her music as much as for her cultural significance. --Rickey Wright

After the relatively poor success of her previous albums (Erotica and Bedtime Stories), Madonna returned to top form in 1995 with Something To Remember - a stunning collection of beautiful ballads from the Queen of Pop herself. The hits on Something To Remember span a total of 12 years, from 1984's Love Don't Live Here Anymore to 1996's One More Chance. All Madonna's greatest ballads ever are all here in the ultimate collection of Madonna's finest slow-jams. The album peaked at No.3 in the UK in November 1995, and has sold 10 million copies to date worldwide. This album not only portrayed a more mature style to Madonna's vocal and songwriting abilities, but signalled that Madonna's sex-era was coming to an end...

The album starts with the superb and equally haunting I Want You. Madonna guest stars with Massive Attack on this superb ballad, yet it's Madonna's excellent vocals that make this song so exquisite. The song was never released as a single, which in a way can be a good thing; if it had been released, it would've been overplayed (having it just on this album makes it more personal). Track 2 is I'll Remember. This average Madonna song was the soundtrack to the flop film, With Honors and peaked at No.7 in the UK in April 1994. Tracks 3, 4 and 5 are Take A Bow, You'll See and Crazy For You which charted at No.16 in December 1994, No.5 in October 1995 and No.2 in March 1985 respectively. I consider Take A Bow to be one of Madonna's best ballads - and definitely one of the best on Something To Remember. You'll See is a serious and moving ballad with some amazing vocals and powerful basslines. Crazy For You, on the other hand, is another excellent slow-jam that sounds perfect playing it around Christmas time.

Madonna's music has varied from her first album to her last. Her music is probably not evolutionary because there appears to be little in the way of progression from "Material Girl" to the techno tracks of "Music". I do think that Madonna has taken the opportunity as a successful artist to experiment with her music, trying something new, sometimes new age, sometimes progressive, always trying to find what works for her.
Throughout her career, one thing has been a constant for Madonna: She has the voice to carry beautiful ballads. This CD is a collection of some of the most beautiful music Madonna has ever sang. While not truly a greatest hits, many of the songs were in fact hits. The goal of this album appears to be similar to that of Elton John's "Love Songs" CD, where Elton's mellow music was similarly collected. Madonna's CD could also have been titled "Love Songs", but of course that title was already taken, and the title reflects one of her hits included on this CD.
"This Used to Be My Playground" from "A League of Their Own", an outstanding song, "You'll See", perhaps Madonna's best song of all time (my opinion!), "I'll Remember" from "With Honors", "Take a Bow", and "Something to Remember" are among the highlights that exercise a voice that can be as absolutely gorgeous as the artist with the voice. I could include most of the other songs on this CD as well, but these particular songs carry feelings that lesser artists would either have difficult to convey, or be unable to convey at all. I sometimes feel so melancholy after listening to "You'll See", that I sometimes get watery eyes.
Any downsides to this CD?

Smoldering, seductive, plaintive, self-reflective. So many strong emotions overtake the listener as Madonna takes us through the depths of her emotions. "Something to Remember" truly is an unforgettable collection of her greatest ballads.
Opening and closing on takes of the Marvin Gaye classic "I Want You", the listener is taken on a journey of Madonna's abilities as a chameleon of musical styles and interpreter of emotions. Wrapping her vocals around big productions like "Rain" and "You'll See", she presents the same feeling of intimacy as she does the smaller scale tracks, like the jazz-tinted title track and the incredibly spare "One More Chance".
This album is even better than the deservedly successful "Immaculate Collection". Some Madonna fans would account that as blasphemy, but you need only see her growth on this album to show you how incredible an artist she really is. Taken away from the uptempo dance hits that made her a household name, she shows a maturity that cements her as a collaborator, vocalist, writer and producer to be reckoned with.

Many of Madonna's strengths as a songwriter and vocalist are showcased in this compilation of ballads, some previously unreleased. The most surprising of the new material is her cover of "I Want You," which surprisingly holds its own when compared to Marvin Gaye's masterful original. The Latin-tinged hit single "You'll See" (#6 Pop, #5 Adult Contemporary) instantly became one of Madonna's best-loved ballads, and it features one of her best vocal performances. The acoustic-sounding "One More Try" is also a favorite of mine, probably because the stripped down production places the emphasis on her voice. This cut really should have been the second single, in my opinion.

The new material helped SOMETHING TO REMEMBER land in the #6 position on the Hot 200, and the well-produced compilation eventually reached Triple-Platinum status in sales. The previously released material is expertly selected including the big hits ("Crazy For You," "Live To Tell," "Take A Bow"), while still giving time to the first-rate modest hits ("Rain," "Oh Father") and lesser-known album tracks (the title track, "Forbidden Love"). The smash hit soundtrack cuts "This Used To Be My Playground" and "I'll Remember" also make their first appearances on a Madonna album. Every track is presented in it's original album version, which is usually the definite version, although it would have been nice to have had the video mix of "Rain" included.

The non-chronological sequencing of the songs doesn't bother me since this is a specialty compilation and not a singles anthology. The only faulty selection is a remix of the early track "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" (#78 Pop, #16 Dance) which doesn't sit well with the other material (personally, I think either "Promise To Try" or "Inside Of Me" would have been much better alternatives). This is easily forgivable though, when considering the multitude of treasures this chest contains.
