As one of the most influential and successful female artists of the 20th century, Celebration is an appropriately named 36-track, double-disc set that covers all periods of Madonna’s career. And even though Celebration is available in a single disc format, this double-disc edition is your best bet to help give the listener the best appreciation of her career’s accomplishments.
You can’t deny the timelessness of Madonna’s imprint on pop music on tracks like Holiday, Lucky Star, Into The Groove, Papa Don’t Preach, Cherish and Borderline.
She continued to evolve throughout her career, delving into dance-oriented music on 1998’s Ray Of Light, Music and 2005’s Hung Up.
For all of the great tracks on this collection, a couple of select songs could have been omitted (Die Another Day, Hollywood) but with a career that is approaching the 30 year mark, the occasional stumble is more than forgiven.
