Synopsis

Amazon.com
Madonna's second album was her breakthrough, thanks principally to two gimmicky hits: the sinuous "Like a Virgin," with its taboo-busting metaphor for that fresh, clean new-love feeling, and the cutesy, Betty-Boopsy "Material Girl." Most of the rest of the album, although similarly frothy, is superior to those warhorses, notably the irresistible LP tracks "Over and Over," and "Pretender"--which adds a bit of gossamer delicacy to the mandatory bounciness. "Dress You Up" is a Madonna classic, an insubstantial dance-pop delight bedecked in synthesized bells and replete to the beat with kinky suggestions. And there's a sign of greater depth to come in her cover of Rose Royce's elegiac ballad "Love Don't Live Here Anymore," a heartfelt vocal supported by a subtle, gorgeous arrangement helmed by producer Nile Rodgers and his two key Chic instrumental compatriots, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson. --Ken Barnes

THE ALBUM THAT MADE MADONNA AN ICON
Prof SR Shabalala | South Africa | 04/16/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Like a Virgin" honestly is not my favorite album from Madonna, but I do remember it vividly as a kid, it was the first time I noticed Madonna, this beautiful, playful, spunky young lady with the confidence to match. I remember how the title track rocked the world along with its video. Other songs on the album that I remember well are "Dress you up", "Over and Over", "Angel" "Material Girl" and "Pretender". This is the album that made Madonna into an MTV Pop Icon, a classic."
