The more time I spend with this album, the more the contours of the album reveal to be extremely thoughtful and provocative beyond explicit.

This year has decided to end in a blaze of drama. I am still listening to music (and working on some larger projects) but am having to deal with the realities of life. Madonna helps make that drama a little easier to deal with.

Please take care of yourself at all costs. Find music that makes you smile and inspire hope as much as music that understands ... read more
It only took one listen for this to become my favorite Madonna album

Right of the bat this album is HOT!!! it’s basically over an hour of sex music and even by today’s standards it’s pretty vivid. Deeper and Deeper and Where life begin are some of the dirtiest songs i’ve heard and they are fantastic.

Just a really sexxxy ... read more
Just when I though her creative and musical growth couldn’t get any better comes Madonna’s first LP In the 90’s, the controversial “Erotica”. Marking a major shift In the artists career, being her most personal, Intimate, untamed, and out-there album to date. (1992)

FAV: Erotica, Fever, Bye Bye Baby, Deeper and Deeper, Where Life Begins, Bad Girl, Waiting, Thief of Hearts, Words, Rain, Why’s It So Hard, In This Life, Did You Get To Do It? & Secret ... read more
I'd like to preface this by saying I've decided to completely ignore the existence of "Did You Do It?". Only instance of an edited version of an album being superior to the explicit version that I know of. I will say M was absolutely before her time in trolling us with that song.

This album captures a very singular version of Madonna, one that never really appeared before this album (though 'Like a Prayer' had chiseled at the dam this album broke), and never fully appeared after it, ... read more
Erotica é o quinto album de estúdio da rainha do pop Madonna, essa obra abrange gêneros diversos e com muita maestria consegue fazer uma obra extremamente coesa. Erotica é muito mais que uma obra sexualizada, é um grito por liberdade de expressão, sobre você poder discutir seus desejos profundos, poder se aceitar como é e refletir como a sociedade reprime diversos assuntos, eu realmente amo muito esse album, ele é muito importante ... read more
