    I'd say Erotica and Bedtime Stories are more underappreciated.
    Everything on "Ray OF Light" remains appreciated by critics to this day.

    As for the song "Ray Of light" itself critics still love it but fans and audiences don't like the song that much these days, what you and aRat posted about it its actually a pretty common / usual thought about the song that most people have. Trust me, it is not a Madonna favorite among her fans nowadays.

          I'd say there's mixed reception among Madonna fans [on UKMix (that I know)].

          I know that's an uber small sample size, but even there the 'mixed' reaction actually seems more positive than negative.

          • Ray Of Light's production sounds unfinished and all over the place, and no It's not progressive nor experimental to aimlessly throw different instrumentals together in hopes that it works somehow.

            Thankfully that song is completely forGaGatten and erased from the GP's memory.

              There a lot of others who don't like it either.

              And yeah the song has "mixed" reception and its FAR AWAY from the love that other dance songs such as "Music" or "Hung Up" get

              Also people may like it but the story gets totally different when you ask them to rank their Madonna's favorite Top 10 songs . . . . you won't see much people ranking "Ray Of Light" inside their top 10s, its not a big fan favorite.

              On the other hand you'll see some frequent choices like "Vogue", "Hung Up", "Frozen", "Like A Prayer", etc on most people's Top 10s . . . . . "Ray OF Light" is not really on that level of preference.

                "Music" is nothing special, "Hung Up" however is is dance-pop perfection.

                  I'm inclined to agree with this. In fact, I'd take it a step further and say "Music" is her weakest lead single to date.

                      "Ray Of Light" is exquisit, its like a Dance-Rock and Techno / Alternative fusion with a very refined production.

                      From the moment it starts with that soft guitar driven intro is divine as it turns into a summer-ish uplifting fest, then I love how the music slows down towards the middle of the song and you can hear those nostalgic Madonna vocals over that heavenly angelic and mellow guitar synth. Its so energetic yet so peaceful and gentle.

                      One of Madonna's finest and most beautiful works:

                      I agree with you on this though. While critics haven't forgotten the track it is indeed "forGaGatten" among the GP these days. I wouldn't debate that AT ALL.

                                    I low-key agree, most of them were:

                                    Don't Tell Me >>> Music
                                    Hollywood >>> American Life
                                    Sorry >>> Hung Up
                                    Give It 2 Me >>> 4 Minutes
                                    Ghosttown >>> Living For Love

                                    The only exception would be "Give Me All Your Luvin", as horrible as it is I still prefer it over "Girl Gone Wild". :-?
