I know, a 10/10 sounds like too much. The album is certainly flawed, GOD is it flawed. But that is mostly because of the fact that her approach of making music was completely unknown at the time. She makes the song and has a vision and then makes sure she finds a producer that understands her. And if the product isn’t good enough, she doesn’t settle for less and continues her search for the perfect sound. Basically, the same tactic that she advices in her lyrics that should be used in relationships.
It doesn’t sound like a big deal now, because almost all female artists after her, followed this formula, and it was also the most logical outcome for women, because culture has been (and somewhat still is) presenting music production (as well as playing certain instruments) as a male thing.
This approach also created a blueprint for electropop in general. The way that the producer’s creative input is of almost equal importance can be found back in artists like Drake and Future today. Suddenly there wasn’t just one song, there were remixes too; the vocals could be thrown around and reinterpretated endlessly. Again, today it’s hard to realize what the big deal is, because that’s the norm now, but that’s because of Madonna.

And of course she gave a voice to feminine sexuality in music.

Her debut album which unlike Like A Virgin & True Blue has surprisingly stood the test of time.

Borderline is such a earworm of a song. That little synth part is annoyingly/brilliantly addicting.

Sweet and poppy, with a Lolita-like quality. But no depth yet. Madonna was just another pop-princess here.
