AllMusic
Here, Madonna is on fire, and that's the reason why it launched her career, launched dance-pop, and remains a terrific, nearly timeless, listen.

Entertainment Weekly
She might have wound up just another post-disco dolly if these songs didn’t announce her ability to fuse club beats with peerless pop. Hits like “Holiday” satisfied both worlds, while “Burning Up” showed she could rock, too

Pitchfork
The driving force of Madonna’s debut remains its palpable physicality, born out of New York dance clubs, a new pop mandate to move your body in ways both public and private.

Rolling Stone
Still, without overstepping the modest ambitions of minimal funk, Madonna issues an irresistible invitation to the dance.

Para começar com o primeiro "remake" de análise, nada melhor que iniciar pela minha primeira análise feita no AOTY❤.

Trazendo uma enorme carga nostálgica, o album de estréia da Rainha do Pop marca como uma entrada bastante promissora da maior popstar feminina de todos os tempos, dedicada a um projeto em que pudesse introduzir ela no mercado fonográfico de forma orgânica, Madonna foi posta como nova proposta para o pop da época ... read more

Production on here is pretty good too, everything on here just pops out and sticks ... read more

Desde que Madonna se mudou para Nova Iorque passou por poucas e boas para que conseguisse se estabilizar financeiramente. Dentre os vários trabalhos que ela teve, o posto de vocalista nas bandas Breakfast Club e Emme foram o que levaram ela a ser reconhecida e assinar seu primeiro contrato com uma gravadora, o que nos leva ao álbum dessa review.

think of me is such an underrated song of hers. it really feels so bold for a bubblegum synthpop. the sax instrumentals and the raw grittiness of the bridge just lands fantastically as a high note of her early career.
there are so many classics packed in here. lucky star and holiday still play everywhere, and though I tend to find borderline a bit overstaying in its welcome, it's still a fun song to go back to every once in a while.
cohesive, fun, and sweet. she would only go up from here.
