This is where she got really very good indeed. Every track is pretty decent, albeit some of the album tracks are very of their time.

Such an insanely good set of singles too, even the title track has its place.

I agree Dandy*. This is the start of the flawless run of albums that was to come throughout the rest of the 80s, 90s and early 00s. wub.gif

The singles are all incredible and the album tracks help to create a great and very consistent listen.

Madonna definitely found her stride with this album! Her songcraft had developed and matured, dealing with more substantial messages, and her vocals are much stronger and allows her to sell the songs in different ways. Of course, the main body of the album is about fun, love, fantasy and freedom, but everything feels like it's been pushed into another gear.

The set of singles are fantastic, each offering something different yet they all tie together perfectly.
