  • Summary: The last album from Madonna on the Warner Brothers label is a compilation of her greatest hits plus two new tracks.

  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.

    Aside from a few missing hits (Causing a Commotion, This Used to Be my Playground), this collection is a testament to how impressive Madonna truly is. Expand
