Impossible Reviews: Madonna's Ray Of Light

1,229 views

MDN45007.jpg

I decided to start this with a well liked and well known album. I've always wanted to do reviews for albums and stuff so here's a go. 

Ray Of Light is considered by most as Madonna's best album or up there with Like a Prayer. It was her last album of the 90s and her stupid bitch of a daughter made it so she couldn't tour (Just kidding I love Lola). It is definitely a trend setting album for experimenting with electronica, drum'n'bass, and early forms of what is now EDM.

1: Drowned World/Substitute For Love (8/10)

The opening track and 3rd single is a gentle song about realizing you're a materialistic hoe. I love how soft it is and the lyrics are very well written. Slowly the song builds up from a minimalist ballad to a soft guitar mid tempo with her serving a little vocal.

2: Swim (8/10)

Swim is a very interesting song "Students rape their teachers." It's a mid tempo about all the negativity in the world and wanting to escape it. That bridge thoooooo it's so good. But all together the lyrics are kinda basic but the production makes up for it and it can definitely get stuck in your head.

3: Ray Of Light (9/10)

This song can do no wrong. It goes AWFF and she serves vocals. The only bad things about it are the lyrics and the fact that it's basically a cover. The lyrics are kinda basic but have great metaphors so they are alright. Her vocals are so amazing and her high note>>>>>>>>>> AND I FEEEeeEeEEELLLlLlllL

4: Candy Perfume Girl (7/10)

I used to hate this song but it has kinda grown on me. I love the buildup in the bridge and after. The lyrics are on point but the vocals sound so monotone and detached but the song is about being so attached and obsessed but whatevs you do you thottie

5: Skin (10/10)

***Flawless. Experimental. Excellent lyrics. Great vocals. Enough Said.

6: Nothing Really Matters (10/10)

What is there not to like about the song? And it obviously had impact since like half the queens on Season 8 of Drag Race did the look from the video for A Night of 1000 Madonnas. Another song about realizing she was a selfish cunt but then changed. Kinda basic lyrics but it's an amazing pop song so it's excusable. "Nothing takes the dark away like the light" No shit ding bat I never would have guessed. The video and everything about the song are amazing tho.

7: Sky Fits Heaven (8/10)

Good lyrics with a great electronica instrumental with a side of vocals = A masterpiece 

8: Shanti/Ashtangi (4/10)

Amazing lyrics but that's it.

9: Frozen (10/10)

Do I really need to explain?

10: The Power of Good-Bye (10/10)

This song hits me really hard because I relate to it so much because of my last relationship. The lyrics are so incredible that I white girl can't even. The video also is just as amazing and I hate that this song is paid dust as a single.

11: To Have And Not To Hold (6/10)

Great lyrics but overall the song is kinda bland.

12: Little Star (7/10)

Little Star is a cute song for her daughter wishing the best for her and hope she realizes she will always be a star. It's cheesy but cute so it gets extra points for blending both perfectly.

13: Mer Girl (10/10)

I pay this song dust but everything about it blows my mind. Tbh Idk what to say about this song because it's hard to describe. It's just so haunting, especially the end and what the song is about.

14: Has To Be (7/10)

I bet y'all didn't think I'd include this. Not the best song on the album but not the worst. The lyrics are short and sweet but good. Everything else makes up for it so it's okay

 

Album Rating:

8.14/10

 

If you guys like it, I'll do more. If not, I'll probably do more anyways. If you want me to do a certain album/single, comment it

Shanti/Ashtangi is a cover song, actually. jj2

It's a well known mantra that a lot of yoga teachers play at the beginning of their lessons. The closing mantra is actually the one us uneducated Madonna fans know as "Cyber-raga".

Both songs aren't good to me. They both sound no.
