I've never liked this album as much as others do. I know it's generally regarded as one of her best works but I've always found it a bit too long for my liking and I end up getting a bit bored before it's over.

My top three would have to be:
1 Frozen (in her top five songs ever for me wub.gif)
2 Ray of Light
3 Drowned World/Substitute for Love

I very rarely revisit much of this aside from Frozen though ohmy.gif

01. Frozen
02. Ray of Light
03. Drowned World/Substitute for Love

Same top 3 as Josh kink.gif 'Frozen' is my favourite ever Madonna song *.* her eerie vocals mixed with the ambient William Orbit production is a recipe for perfection.

The Power Of Goodbye/Frozen/Ray Of Light

The former is third only to Hung Up and Like A Prayer in my overall Madonna affections, gorgeous track.

Sky Fits Heaven, Drowned World/Substitute for Love and Nothing Really Matters would be 4th, 5th and 6th, great album.

It was a stunning return to the big league, building on the gains made from Something to Remember and Evita. We had so much new music from her in the 1990s.

1. Frozen
2. Nothing Really Matters
3. The Power of Goodbye

Drowned World, Ray of Light were also both excellent singles. Fantastic imagery throughout the campaign and the album is brilliant throughout. I have all the instrumentals of each track and they make a gorgeous listen.

'Ray of Light' is a definite vote. 'Skin' too as that's one I remember being in awe of even as a kid and the experience has stuck to this day. The third vote is pretty tricky - I'm thinking 'Nothing Really Matters' as that's really stood out as a favourite this past year or so, but any of 'Drowned World', 'Sky Fits Heaven', 'Frozen' or 'The Power of Goodbye' could easily take third any other day.

This has to be the hardest round so far! sad.gif I've gone for 'Ray of Light', 'Skin' and 'Nothing Really Matters' but there's so many others that I could have voted for too.

Even on Confessions I have a good idea of what will be my Holy Trinity.

Voted just for Frozen as it is the only one I know oops.... It is a fantastic song and I really like the ambient trip hop production and Madonna's vocal in it! One of the best pop songs of the 90s imo.

You should give more of the album a chance if you enjoy Frozen (particularly the singles here). You might end up loving them as much ohmy.gif

I second this. 'Ray of Light', 'Skin' and 'Sky Fits Heaven' are all particularly interesting production-wise and I reckon you'll really like them.

I mean, the whole album is magical but those three in particular are ones I'd recommend.

I don't have all her albums, but bought several a couple of months ago.
I only really know the earlier albums inside out, but I gave this one three listens today !


I vote for :

Sky Fits Heaven - shoulda been a single!
Little Star - I can't believe I'm it's only voter !?
The Power of Goodbye - a toss up between this and Frozen, coulda gone either way.
