If Madonna's 1983 excellent dance-pop debut was her launch pad, then LIKE A VIRGIN were the rocket thrusters that launched her into Pop music notoriety. Her sophomore record helped establish her legend through its parade of hit singles and almost constant rotation of her promotional videos on MTV during this era. This was undoubtedly an important album for her, but as a whole it never seemed as consistent as her first album. And in retrospect, some of the gold she spun seems a bit silver in actual value now. It's a great album if you're in the mood to reminisce about 80s Pop. Aside from the singles, much of the remaining songs towards the end of the album are pretty much filler. (The addition of "Into The Groove" does help the album some, although many versions don't include this soundtrack single.) All that said, it is a very enjoyable dance-pop album that will bring back many memories for those who grew up during the 80s.
