I rate this DVD a perfect 10/10.
No other artist has ever come close to acheiving what Madonna has in any field of music, but especially music videos. She has garnered 65 MTV video award nominations - SIXTY FIVE.
This compilation features my two favorite music videos of all time - Ray of Light, and The Power of Goodbye.
If you are a Madonna fan, run, don't walk to the nearest retailer and get this ASAP.
BRILLIANT! ENTERTAINING! THOUGHT-PROVOKING! STUNNING! What else can be
about this video collection? Madonna offers her fans 14 of "her" favorite
video clips from 1993-1999. There are some real gems in this
"Bad Girl", "Fever", "Rain", "Secret", "Take A Bow", "Bedtime Story",
Nature", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", "Frozen", "Ray Of Light",
World/Substitute For Love", "The Power Of Goodbye", "Nothing Really
Matters", and "Beautiful Stranger". The addition of "Drowned
World/Substitute For Love", being only a European realease in the past, is
reason enough to make this title a must for Madonnas U.S. fans. The only
upset to this compilation are the missing videos: "This Used To Be My
Playground", "Erotica", "Deeper and Deeper", "You Must Love Me" and "I'll
Madonna has made REMARKABLE contributions to the video arena, more than any other artist to date! Madonna's videos are a strong part of American Pop Culture. Madonna's videos are no stranger to awards either, "Take A Bow" received the AMA and the MTV VMA "Video Of The Year" Award, while "Ray Of Light" won MTV VMA "Video Of The Year" Award, also helped usher in one of Madonna's first four Grammy's!
The Material Girl returns for another dvd/vhs collection of her greatest hits in this answer to "The Immaculate Collection". Possibly the best video here is "Fever". Some of the videos are somewhat dumb especially "Nothing Really Matters" but the songs are good. "Ray of Light", "Frozen", "Rain", "Fever" and "Secret" show her talent for dramatic gestures and effect. The downside is the omission of "This Used to Be My Playground", "Deeper and Deeper", "You Must Love Me" and "I'll Remember". Those were her really good songs and it would've been nice to see the videos. Maybe they'll be on the next one. This is a dvd/vhs worth getting if you're a Madonna fan or a fan of 90's dance.
I wish they would have included the original longer version of the "Bad Girl" video that was run on MTV. The longer original version had a much better story line to it, like a mini movie with more Christopher Walken scenes. But at least I have this one to watch, Madonna is at her very best in her career and her videos were visual magic! "Justify My Love" would have been another EXCELLENT video to have been included here but too much questionable content I guess. The black and white filming of "Justify" is pure genius! It really is too bad it's not included here. "Rain" is another visual masterpiece and "Bedtime Story" was one of the first truly "Over the Top Expensive" videos of the day and one of the first to use massive amounts of computer altered graphics, A real masterpiece! Don't pass up the chance to own this wonderful collection
I would have enjoyed this more had it had all of her videos from the era on it - most notably, it's missing the very memorable "Erotica" (according to rumor, in order to avoid a Parental Advisory label.) However, the DVD is still very much worth owning for any Madonna fan - her genius for visuals is at its peak during the videos from "Ray of Light," especially in "The Power of Goodbye" and "Frozen." This collection definitely showcases her at her best, during her later years, and the visual effects are superceded only by the music.
