21. Hard Candy // 13 voters / 45 points

First out is the one that we probably all expected to be last. Madonna's 11th studio album and her move into R&B, urban, hard hitting beats came with an equally as hard-hitting album. Madonna posed in front of the garishly bright pink background, rocking a heavyweight champion belt and... some leather ;o It's a very bold album, connoting images of bondage, dominatrix and power but ultimately it's pretty ghastly to look at and not one i'd want to show off on my CD shelf. It was initially going to be called 'Black Madonna' with album artwork to match, would that have done better or worse than this, lol?

It got a shockingly poor average with only Regina and Harry showing it any sort of adoration.

I have come round to the album and enjoy a lot of it, and as much as it's a striking photo I don't think it works as an album cover. Maybe as a page in the album booklet, but I hate skimming through my albums and seeing her legs outstretched and in my face so garishly. She does look really good on it and I can see the appeal, but it's not for me.

To turn to another of my faves though... it's probably better than the standard Born This Way album ph34r.gif

I too enjoy the actual album - for its down points and un-Madonna sounding tracks, it's compensated for ones that show the opposite - but I just can't accept that artwork. It looks like someone has carelessly created a cover on photoshop with intention of taking the mick. Just awful and, for a long time, it had tainted my thoughts on the album content.

The zoomed in Special Edition version is lovely and very striking but BikeGa is so tacky I find now. I've only ever really used the special edition cover so I rarely see the bike one but when I do its pretty monstrous lmao.

I think we can all agree that Born This Way: The Collection version is the absolute best though.

20. Who's That Girl // 13 voters / 49 points

Kick starting the top 20 is an album cover for the motion picture soundtrack for the film of the same name. Madonna performs on less than half of the tracks on the album but her striking pose on the artwork demands that it becomes her album. The most notable feature of the album is Madonna's dark, over-bearing eyebrows especially in contrast to the brightness of the rest of the image and it shows M in a playful, fun light,

The album didn't get a single score above 8 ;o

Too flushed but a lot better than Hard Candy which is just awful in more than one way.

I agree about the eyebrows! laugh.gif It is a nice enough cover for a soundtrack and shows the gist of her character but, when you compare it to her studio album artwork that are so rich in detail and interpretation, even if they're simple, it's just not in the same league.

19. The Immaculate Collection // 13 voters / 62 points

Next up we have the artwork for the first greatest hits compilation from Madge. A hugely successful collection but one that comes packaged quite... basically I find. It's one of only two in this rank not to actually feature Madonna's face which probably explains why it isn't as well appreciated here. It is quite an iconic cover, probably moreso due to the success of the album and limps out with a lowly score here. I don't think it's hated by people, more people are indifferent to it?

No maximum or minimum score ;o
