This review is from: Secret (Audio CD)
Although Bedtime Stories is not one of my favourite Madonna albums, I must say Secret is by far, one of her best singles. Both the music and lyrics are haunting and memorable, and the production is outstanding - a mid-tempo hip-hop ballad that you simply cannot get out of your head. Even seven years after it was first released, Secret remains one of Madonna's most played
radio singles. It has a timeless quality in that it seems to get better with age. The remixes are excellent, particularly those by Junior Vasquez, who made some of his best remixes with Madonna before they had a falling out. The Luscious Club Mix provides Secret with a pounding house beat for clubs, and it's simply great. The hip-hop mix by Allstar not only further enhances the song's hip-hop sound, but reaffirms Madonna's ability to cross musical borders. She can cross genres such as pop, jazz, dance,
r&b and hip-hop with such simplicity, and always with great grooves.
