This album is classified as Madge’s best amongst fan groups but for me it’s overrated. It’s only good because of the hits.
What an era
No filler here. Not a single bad track. Magic times. The days when she looked seriously hot and everything, musically she touched turned to gold. The sound and artwork are still extremely contemporary. Perhaps the only thing that dates this album is the 80's top tapping hook and melody that never lets go. Since then we have settled for style over substance. Here it's all substance. Looking to start an earlier Madonna catalogue, then start here. Featuring her classic ballad Live To Tell, which still resonates and is powerful and haunting today as well as many other number ones such as Open Your Heart- a career highlight and Papa Don't Preach- a defining moment of classical and pop music mix. Also featuring the start of her Spanish influenced tracks, the U.K. Number 1 La Isla Bonita and the underrated title track- also a UK number one. This album is a real lightening in a bottle catching era of madonnas career that will stand up to thousands of listens.
My favourite Madonna album
Full to the brim of some of her best hits ever, this is the Madonna everybody loves! My favourites are Papa Don't Preach, True Blue and Live To Tell. I'd definitely recommend this to any 80s fan
Madonnas best album
Definitely the best madonna album, by far.
By iTunes !!!
Amazing she's deserves to be called 'the queen of pop'
True Blue is madonna's biggest Selling album
This is the album that in my opinion made Madonna the Queen.
1986 she shot straight to number one around the world with her hit album (true blue) that set records including most weeks at no1 on the European albums chart- 34 weeks!!
-Live to tell
-Papa dont preach
-Open Your Heart
- True blue
-La isla Bonita
most reached no1 around the world while others reached top 5
Everyone should have a copy of this piece of history
Classic 80's album. 5 out of 5 !
What can i say. this album sold over 24 million copies around the world was the biggest album of the 80's by a female singer and of all time at the time. the album produced five united world chart number one hits, a first for any singer and is filled with classic polished pop/mor songs. this album defined madonna as the biggest star in the world. Not the best of her career but definately the most iconic.
100% perfect pop from beginning to end!!
Great classic. Love this album....
