Vocally and lyrically it's absolutely one of her finest.

    I agree people dismiss it as her attempting to go mainstream too quickly. I mean she went for a commercial sound, but at that time I still think it was her most creative moment... and remains one of her artistic peaks imo.

    Y'all have no idea how happy it makes me to see people loving and crediting Bedtime Stories for what it is. A masterpiece! I have always been championing it and it's easily my Top 2 Madonna album with American Life.

    It's an overlooked gem in her discography: she never recorded anything else like this and, whilst the music is subtle for Madonna's standards, the song craft is fantastic and many of its songs are career highlights. I can understand why there wasn't a lot of hype around Madonna throughout this campaign and, though it still sold well and its singles received varying degrees of success around the world, I think it's the closest she's ever came to being just another popstar. I'm not happy about that; I wish the album had a greater legacy in her catalogue: the music is incredibly strong, I adored the Pyjama Party she held to promote the launch of the Bedtime Story video, and collectively the music videos are probably her strongest set of clips from one of her albums. It's incredibly under appreciated and deserves (and deserved) more.

    Today 25 years ago, Take a Bow was the #1 song in the USA.

    Take A Bow peaked at #1 in early 1995. So 24 years ago.

    This is my favorite Madonna album along with Like A Prayer and Music. I listened to it the other day as I uploaded the vinyl on my Instagram and it still sounds so amazing.

    I have so many memories connected to this album. I was only a few months old when this was released but when I became interested in Madonna at a very young age, this album always fascinated me. It was (and still is) a very underrated album. Kinda forgotten , yet it includes quite a few important songs from her killer discography. Back in the day I even called myself "bedtimestories" on some social network as I thought I could make people check out this album.

    "Survival" is one of her finest album tracks ever.

    How I wish she would’ve explored the sound of Love Tried To Welcome Me more and do an album around that sound.

    That song is immaculate. Not typically Madonna which makes it sound so fresh and interesting in her discography. Phenomenal song.

    This album was always amazing, but it still ages like fine wine...

    I know i'm in minority, but this album is my favorite by Madonna. It doesn't have the huge hits, but almost every song on it is excellent.
