I am listening to this album now! I don't think i've ever listened to it in full before? laugh.gif

'Spotlight' is very underrated by me - I never return to it because it's so tucked away from her studio albums and greatest hits compilations! The run of that into 'Holiday' is great!

So this is a FANTASTIC listen and I've been sleeping on it for far too long. Definitely going to be a gym listening album in the future: wall-to-wall bangers, all perfectly blended into each other.

And it's so great to hear 'Where's The Party' in the mix too, it's a real favourite of mine from True Blue! heart.gif

I too completed my first listen to the album today and I really enjoyed it! It's a great mix of feel-good dance music, I love how the production is allowed to breathe and how the tracks flow into one another (I'm a sucker for a great transition!). The new mix of 'Where's the Party?' is so good!

I really like the second side of this, was listening to it earlier today. It's only 3 tracks but the run of Over and Over / Into the Groove / Where's the Party really works well and I can just imagine people strutting their 80s stuff to it.

What was disappointing about it for you?

I think it kinda does what it says on the tin.

Didn't realise just how successful this album was! She was unstoppable during this time wasn't she?

I think the concept of a remix album was still relatively new at the time and the album acted as the first type of retrospective for Madonna, which may explain why it was such a success.

It's second only to Michael Jackson's 1997 release 'Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix' with over 6 million sales.

Ooooo interesting! I'll definitely take a listen to this as the versions are largely better than the originals.

This is actual exciting as a release as its 7 different songs at a single length and therefore easy to listen to and up for repeated listens.

15-20 years ago this could have been a mini-album with Spotlight released to promote and been massive as a kind of "reissue/hits" retrospective.
