This is a rollercoaster of an album, the bangers are brilliant, obviously. Frozen is a tune and a half, and I’d forgotten about The Power of Good-Bye which is a really great song. And then some of the other stuff is great, not quite living up to that level but really listenable. But then there’s also some elements that really dragged. the Candy Perfume one really felt like it was never going to end. Overall, though, a great album.

It’s amazing to think this is Madonna’s debut album, starting her career with such great songs as Borderline and Holiday. Although it does sound of its time on the whole, there are elements of this album that are also timeless - Madonna’s signature sound being one of them. It’s a short album but packs a powerful punch and kicks off a long-lived and ever-changing career.

This is such a weird album. There are real oddities on there, of course, Dark Ballet being a particular example of that. But actually some of the songs are quite good individually, it’s just a wonder how they are all on the same album. It doesn’t flow at all, skips around amongst feelings and sounds, and is generally something of a fever dream.
