Format: Audio CD
Madonna's 1992 album "Erotica" was a landmark album in her career, and absolutely ahead of it's time. Unfortunately, released between her notorious Sex book and the overheated box-office debacle Body of Evidence, her finest album got lost in the shuffle. A closer, undistracted look at "Erotica" today reveals an artist on the verge of a thrilling change, ripping open the envelope she'd always threatened to push, and finally giving us a taste of what we were all assuming she was doing in the first place.
Like today's electronica, 1992's "Erotica" is a chilly but exciting experience. Far removed the warm, submissive intimacy of "Justify My Love," the Madonna of "Erotica" walks tall and carries a big whip. "Erotica" was produced to a large degree by DJ/remixer/producer Shep Pettibone, whose signature mixes have rocked the clubs and airwaves since the mid-80s. Pettibone's energetic and creative production dominates Erotica, with a diverse, textured blend of beats, bass and sonic soundscapes, while still leaving Madonna free to do her thing.
Album highlights include the throbbing title track, the dance-till-you drop firecracker "Deeper and Deeper", and a sizzling cover of Peggy Lee's "Fever ". Other fine Madonna/Pettibone collaborations include the riveting confessions of "Bad Girl"; the witty revenge fantasy "Thief of Hearts"; the heated plea for equality, "Why's It So Hard"; and the soaring ballad "Rain."
Producer Andre Betts also has a strong presence on "Erotica", co-producing such standout tracks as the steamy ode to oral gratification, "Where Life Begins," and the soul-searching album finale, "Secret Garden.

I'm sat here listening to Erotica, trying to think why this stunning album was so critically attacked. Before I bought this album, I was worried the critics may have been correct. I thought if I bought it, all I'd think of every time I listened to it is that harsh crack of the critical whip. With a little help from the positive reviews on Amazon, I decided to give it a go. The sheer superiority and excellent early 90's dance shines through. The critics said this album was full of sex, sex, sex. What the hell are they all on about?! There are three sex songs on here! (Erotica, Secret Garden and Where Life Begins). Here's my review of Erotica...

Track 1 is Erotica (10/10). The first song from this album released in October 1992. It made UK No.3. The video and orgasms shocked the world. The deep. voice is almost scary as the sight of dominatrix Madonna in the video pops into my head evertime I hear this. Track 2 is Fever (10/10). A cover of Peggy Lee's classic from 1956. This made UK No.6 in April 1993. The taking of a really soulful 1950s song and updating it with racy, dance beats of the 1990s works really well. Track 3 is Bye Bye Baby (10/10). A very good dance/pop track. I like the lyrics, "I know I loved you, because I hate you". Classic, up-front Madonna! Although her voice is a little strange, even nausiating. Track 4 is Deeper And Deeper (10/10). A very good dance track for the clubs. This made No.6 in the UK in December 1992. The chorus is really up-beat and happy. The Spanish bit half-way through is really good and gives it that foreign holiday feel. Track 5 is Where Life Begins (9/10). A VERY saucy track from kinky Madonna! The whole song is mainly about how to have sex.

Although it wasn't meant to, this album really brushed off all the trendy and unimaginative fans. It did however, deeply satisfy the fans who truly understand Madonna. The fans who understand her when she says "I didn't get into music because I thought I had a great voice or was a great dancer; I got into music because I have something to say."
The attitude on this album is incredible. Fierce and reflective. Fun and empowering. The opening song "Erotica" is a demanding turn-on and Madonna isn't afraid to express her fantasy bluntly just as in "Where Life Begins." Equally in-your-face is "Bye Bye Baby" - a fun and liberating end to a nasty relationship. "Bad girl" is an addictively touching account of a low point in one's life (beautiful short-film music video by the way). "Rain" and "In This Life" are also softer, moving songs. "Thief Of Hearts" is a nasty confrontation! "Deeper and Deeper" is so much fun - you'll love it. "Why's it So Hard" is an agreeable call for peace and equal rights. "Secret Garden" brings things to an end quite gracefully. The only genuine throw-away is "Did You Do It?" which is Madonna just having fun with some rappers...not bad but would have made a better b-side. The other 13 songs for the most part are extremely valuable gems to Madonna's expanding catalog.
Now that the dust has settled, it's clear that this album is not only a classic but drastically adds to Madonna's "legend" status which will reach people for years and years to come.
