The Material Girls 1998 return to pop after a fouryear hiatus Sonically this the most adventurous Madonna record ever made It is also the most mature and restrained album which makes it extremely accessible

Never underestimate Madonnas power of persuasion By nearly all critical accounts Ray of Light Madonnas first album of new material since 1994s Bedtime Stories and her first since motherhood is her richest most accomplished record yet While Ray of Light is being tagged as Madonnas big leap into electronica its important to note two things First her music has always had close ties to dance culture and second her collaborator William Orbit is no Chemical Brother Though it has all the latest blips bleeps and crackles electronica has to offer Ray of Light is still largely an adult album completely within Madonnas realm Still Orbits tasteful sonic constructions provide Madonna with her most adventurous hippest musical backdrop ever Whats more the arrangements and production are understated enough to highlight an even bigger development Fresh from singing lessons on the Evita set Madonnas vocal range depth and clarity have never been stronger But larger pipes dont necessarily make for deeper truer music Never a master lyricist Madonnas words have worked best when theyve practically been slogans Vogue Express Yourself This time she goes for more emotional depth and even tries her hand at ethnotechnomysticism Shanti/Ashtangi She largely stumbles however The tone conveyed on songs like Nothing Really Matters is a selfcentered pat on the back that belies her claim to a newfound altruism Its enough to make you wonder now that Madonnas given up being our material girl if maybe shes set her sights on becoming the center of our spiritual world too Roni Sarig Amazon
