  • Summary: The last album from Madonna on the Warner Brothers label is a compilation of her greatest hits plus two new tracks.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. Superfans may well die happy with this much concentrated Madge-estry: 36 tracks covering nearly every phase of her 25-year career. It all holds up surprisingly well.
  2. The collection does a fine job of living up to the title--it's certainly a celebration of Madonna's career and includes some of the most celebratory and thrilling pop music ever created.
  3. Okay, so the legitimacy of the song selection can, in this Cuisinart iteration, only be appraised on a case-by-case basis. How do the songs sound? And are the mixes definitive? Great and mostly, respectively.
  4. It's a dizzying, nonchronological spin through the Madonna years, years it makes you feel lucky to be living through.
  5. There's a lot of remarkable music on Celebration--the work of an artist who's spent a quarter-century in a passionate body-lock with the question of what exactly makes pop music popular. She deserves a retrospective more interesting than this haphazard piece of contract-filling product.

    Queen of pop! For the haters above, you can choose NOT TO BUY this GH collection if you don't like it. While you are bitching about Queen of pop! For the haters above, you can choose NOT TO BUY this GH collection if you don't like it. While you are bitching about Madonna's GH, she's having huge success with it around the world, so clearly many fans love this GH, this is a slap on you haters face! Expand

    Some might look at this as a business opportunity for Madonna. It might be, but it's actually good, as you get tracks which aren't on herSome might look at this as a business opportunity for Madonna. It might be, but it's actually good, as you get tracks which aren't on her studio albums. For example, if you do not own The Immaculate Collection, you'll have Justify My Love. Other tracks like Vogue, Who's That Girl, Crazy for You and Beautiful Stranger are also tracks which do not appear on studio albums, so it's always good to have them all in one (although I would recommend I'm Breathless). Another good addition is Into the Groove since, as I'm sure most of you are aware, it was left out of the remastered version of Like a Virgin, which is very frustrating, as it is one of her best tracks in my opinion. So, basically, it's a good CD is you want tracks like those mentioned all in one CD, instead of purchasing CDs for one song. Apart from that, the title track and Revolver are addictive Expand

    Now "Celebration" is something to celebrate for. The Queen of Pop brings her first compilation since 2001, which is full of brilliant hitsNow "Celebration" is something to celebrate for. The Queen of Pop brings her first compilation since 2001, which is full of brilliant hits including "Like a Virgin", "Into The Groove", "Like a Prayer", "Ray of Light" and "Hung Up". The album is a full-set length with most of Madonna's number #1 hits worldwide, and although some tracks which are satisfactory to some people are not featured on it (Including "American Pie", "I'll Remember", "Rain"), the album still manages to bring an awesomeness to it.
