The 90's proved to be an interesting time for MTV's First Lady as she dabbled with different music styles while pursuing movies, music and motherhood (not necessarily in that order). Like its perfect predecessor THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION, GHV2 features edited and remixed versions of her hits. Run in loosely chronological order, this collection kicks off during Madonna's overtly naughty face (the hypnotic "Erotica" and club anthem "Deeper And Deeper") to specific film fare (a sweeping "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and the delightfully psychedelic "Beautiful Stranger"). Madonna's most impressive moments came as a result of brilliant collaborations with electronica artists William Orbit and Frenchman Mirwais. Orbit's touch on songs from the critically acclaimed RAY OF LIGHT can be heard on the chilly sparseness of "Frozen," infectious nature of the pulsing title track and ambient brilliance of "The Power Of Good-Bye". The Gallic producer/performer helped Madonna greet the millennium with MUSIC and a string of hits including stop-and-stutter thump of "Don't Tell Me" and the serpentine electro-funk that is the title track. Constantly changing her image the way most people change clothes, Madonna's equally quirky stylistic unpredictability maintains her hold on being pop's greatest musical chameleon.
Q (12/01, p.151) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...a 15-track resume of Madonna's music since 1992, telling a fascinating tale..." NME (Magazine) (11/10/01, p.42) - 8 out of 10 - "...Quite a collection..."
Madonna is arguably the most popular female pop singer in American musical history. Although she began her career in the late 1970s as a dancer and as drummer for new wave group the Breakfast Club, Madonna has touched upon many different styles throughout her trend-setting career, and has acted in numerous movies as well. Although her image has shifted to include looks as disparate as raunchy temptress and New Age mother, the Material Girl has always maintained a fierce business sense and a remarkable knack for controversy. Few other artists--male or female--have had the phenomenal mass adulation or the staying power of this pop culture icon.
