Best of the 90's: Ray of Light by Madonna

Ray Of LightMadonna has been through many musical stages over the years.  In 1998 she came out with Ray of Light to kick off a new sound and she ended up producing her best album.  Currently it sits at number 99 at the Best of the 90's list.  

It's her best album mostly because musically it all flows together.  There is only one dud track on the album, "Shanti / Ashtangi", but if you drop that you have one of the best pop oriented techno dance albums ever made.

Up to this point this is the peak of Madonna's career.  Since Ray of Light she has struggled to find the same level of maturity and consistency. 

If you want to hear the best Madonna album ever made then give this one a listen. Also this is the best album ever made to write computer code to.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 4 out of 5 stars for Really Good.

  1. I think it's odd how Sting and Madonna came into our lives at pretty much the same moment and that their once divergent sounds eventually intersected at the turn of the century.
