    I love this "Promise To Try" and "Dear Jessie." The latter reminds me of The Beatles. Such a sweet lullaby. I never go into this album until recently as I thought it sounded dated but I love the ballads on this especially "Oh Father," and "Love Song." I wish the video version of "Express Yourself" was on this album though.

    Other than LAP the song, Till Death do us part might be the best tune on here.
    The other ones are solid pop tracks as well. Pray for Spanish Eyes is slick yet very warm. Promise to try is full of heart Oh F is all pain with a flicker of hope.

    she looked very sexy there, more so than the her usual blonde persona, more approachable -kinda. Possibly the most "natural" Madonna we'll ever see.

    I prefer the remixed versions of Like a Prayer and Express Yourself. They've got more oomph to them than the album versions.

    I don't think this is quite the masterpiece that it's made out to be; for me, songs like Love Song and Dear Jessie, which are fine, are nonetheless below the quality of the rest of the songs.
    Jessie J is one of my favourite Madonna songs. I think it's pop perfection.

    My rankings are:

    1."Like A Prayer" (what a masterpiece from start to finish-epic pop/choir/rock fusion of goodness)
    2."Promise To Try" (probably Madge's best ballad along with "Live To Tell")
    3."Cherish" (pure pop, magic and fun are the words to describe this song)
    4."Oh Father" (the violins, the piano, the orchestra and the somber voice are what make this song a classic)
    5."Spanish Eyes" (love the slow Latin feel to this)
    6."Dear Jessie" (love The Beatles baroque style lullaby)
    7."Keep It Together" (very funky Sly sound)
    8."Till Death Do Us Part" (this is surprisingly upbeat but it's not my favourite)
    9."Express Yourself" (I prefer the video version to this)
    10."Love Song" (weak but still a grower)
    11."Act Of Contrition"
    Madonna......Rihanna....Beyonce....Michael...Janet....Prince...Mariah...Whitney

    'Keep It Together' is one of her all time best songs. I'm not surprised it made the Top 10 (even after 'Oh Father' failed to do so and as there is no video). The mixes on the physical single are also strong. The live performance at The Blond Ambition Tour of this song is my favorite Madonna performance EVER.

    Madonna's best album, a.k.a. "Like A Prayer" was released 29 years ago.

    Still my favorite album that includes many of my Top 10 Madonna songs: Like A Prayer, Express Yourself, Cherish, Oh Father and Keep It Together.

    The record desperately needs a remastered version, though.

    I don;t like it. Title song is the only song i listen outside the album.

    Great record. I think as Madonna's first foray into her artistic period, it's perhaps not as instant as the pure bubblegum 80s pop of her previous records (which are all far below this in terms of quality). Some of the songs take some getting used to in order to appreciate. However, she practised and also perfected the notion of the concept album on this record and delivered a solid body of work.

    A huge happy birthday to this iconic record. I'll be celebrating its thirtieth anniversary next year in spades.

    I loved that era.

    2nd of March in front of the tv to watch the Pepsi commercial.

    The radio premier of Love Song and Express Yourself.

    The album release with me loving every song on first listen (though I don't count Act of Contrition).

    The new look.

    The stunning video and remixes for Express Yourself.

    The fun video for Cherish and the b-side Supernatural.

    One of my all time favorite Madonna songs as a single release: Dear Jessie.

    The beautiful video for Oh Father (though I only saw it years later as it wasn't released in Europe at the time).

    The remixes of Keep It Together.

    The many beautiful photo shoots.

    I think all music videos in that era were extremely good.

    I would've loved to see a video for Keep It Together, especially after the fantastic Blond Ambition performance.
