    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.
    No ma'am
    Yes, gurl, yes.

    4 Minutes is basic, but ok. GMAYL is disgusting.

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

    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.

    Hi there!

    I actually think "4 Minutes" and "Give Me All Your Luvin'" are two of Madonna's career-best tracks. I think a lot of people consider the latter to be ridiculous, but were it released 25 years earlier, I think it'd be held in higher regard. It's a geyser of unadulterated fun!

    LOL not really, at worst it could drop some positions but "Ray Of Light" song has never left my Madonna Top 5 for over 20 years.

    My Top Madonna song used to be "Drowned World / Substitute For Love" and "Ray Of Light" was my #2 but they have swtiched places by now.

    It is a stunning progressive song and the fact that not many people seem to appreciate it actually makes me like it even more .... I'll never be that "Hung Up" / "4 Minutes" stan.

    As of July 28, 2018. "Ray Of Light" is my favorite Madonna song ever.
