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
Rolling Stone
Still, without overstepping the modest ambitions of minimal funk, Madonna issues an irresistible invitation to the dance.
Esse album marca a entrada da rainha do pop na indústria musical, o album possui uma sonoridade bem coesa a sua proposta que são apenas canções para dançar e descontrair, esse album facilmente tocaria por completo em clubes de dança na época que foi lançado, a sonoridade passa uma atmosfera jovem, inocente e alegre, a produção sonora do album é simplista em vários momentos, mas ainda sim é em boa parte ... read more
A debut album that wouldn’t just set the tone for pop music of the ‘80s but would introduce the world to a woman who would go on to become one of the greatest and influential artists of all time

The biggest debut of the song POP. Madonna is iconic and proves it already in the first 20 seconds of "Lucky Star".
Happy Birthday Madonna! You changed my life.

After such a massive, unprecedented career, it seems that Madonna’s 1983 eponymous debut has been unfortunately forgotten and lumped in with the vastly-inferior ‘Like a Virgin’ has her “early work”.

Madonna's stunning debut is certainly one of the best pop albums of all time. A fresh artist right off mid-80's debuting with spetacular songs such as 'Holiday', 'Lucky Star' & 'Burning Up' was destined to become a huge icon. The synths on every track are on point and the songs couldn't be more catchy, dance music back then was blooming and was already defining what was about to come in the next few decades.
