Considered by many to be the Material Girl's most mature effort of the '80s, Like a Prayer upped the ante of controversy with its gospel-infused title track and the singer's emotional confessions throughout. It also unveiled the hit "Express Yourself," which ushered in the era of Madonna as a "stainless steel sexual icon." Musically, Prayer showcased her burgeoning songwriting prowess, with the beautiful "Oh Father" and the perky pop of "Cherish." Besides a throw-away collaboration with Prince ("This Is Not a Love Song"), the CD stands as one of her strongest works, eschewing the strong dance beat influences from her past--she saved that for the remixes--and concentrating instead on melody and structure. Like a Prayer also gave a hint of things to come with the delightful "Dear Jessie" displaying a maternal side worthy of her name. --Steve Gdula (

"Not that there was anything to not like about the "bubblegum" Madonna of the early/mid 80s, but on this album, Madonna shows a much deeper and more spiritual side of herself that many people probably didn't know was there at the time. "Deep, dark and haunting" is probably the best way to describe many of the songs on this album, especially "Oh Father" and "Promise To Try." Of course, Madonna doesn't completely abandon what made her famous in the first place, and songs like the title track, "Express Yourself," and "Cherish" show that she was well able to incorporate her new lyrical maturity into the breezy, upbeat pop settings that served her (and us) well so many times before."
