before Madonna was just another face in the media swamp
Basically a hits of hits collection of Madonna's best of, this is fairly worth the purchase (if somewhere available, it might be fairly cheap if found in the stores). It's really her at a peak, and even if you're not a big fan (like me) it would still be worth a look-see. If for nothing else, you do get to see when music videos were actually good, and not just throw-aways or (as is the case today) near non-existent. Like a Virgin, Borderline, Open Your Heart, Lucky Star, all the 80's Madonna hits are here, but there are also the videos for Express Yourself and Vogue, which not only put her up the charts (for better or worse in the early 90's controversy) but also helped give a lot of leverage to music video-turned-post-modernist impresario David Fincher. So, if you're tired of hearing all this Kaballah stuff and phooey about her and the life she leads now in England and her new "look" and "style to her albums, for a nostalgia trip you could have a lesser deal (i.e. the film Desperately Seeking Susan).
