Along with, ray of light, like a prayer, is Madonna's best album. Usually with Madge, there are great singles but albums always tend to have a bit of filler on them. Not here. Having said that the singles are still the strongest songs; cherish, express yourself, and the title track are perfect pop songs. Madonna at her peak.

Fun Fact: Recording artist Prince played the guitar on three songs from the album, "Like a Prayer", "Keep It Together", and "Act of Contrition", though he remained uncredited.[15] Prince and Madonna also worked together on the track "Love Song".

There's some great pop songs on here: "Express Yourself", "Cherish", and "Dear Jessie". The other songs are...surprisingly serious (and, unfortunately, a bit too adult contemporary)

One of the best albums of the 80's by far her best album up to this point(1989). She grew in stature with this album, many consider it to be the best thing she has ever done.

Does it get much more classic Madonna than this? Some of her best work and greatest hits.

Here, you have the 3 hits accompanied by a load of pop cheese. The prime cheesy example is "dear jessie" in which she sings of "pink unicorns and lemonade". Ugh. And what a waste of a prince/madonna duet on the bland, near-personality-free "love song". But you have the hits -- "cherish", "express yourself" and "like a prayer" -- so there's that. I agree with the opinion madonna is served best on greatest hits compilations.
