So there's this pop singer... you may have heard of her? Madonna, she's called, and the word is that she's basically all image; she went through a put-your-hands-all-over-my-body phase, then she got spiritual, and then she started wearing cowboy hats. Between all the gossip columns and photo shoots, though, she's left an unmatched trail of devastatingly wonderful singles--roaring dance records, tender ballads, and a curious combination of the two that is her personal specialty ("Secret" and "Ray of Light"). How many artists' best-of-the-second-decade collections crowd out legitimate hits? ("American Pie," anyone? "This Used to Be My Playground"?)

But it compresses her past 10 years worth of records into an hour of one peak after another.--Douglas Wolk

I'd had liked to have "This Used to be my Playground" included as well as "Nothing Really Matters" which while it wasn't as large of a hit that many hoped, had spawned many great remixes. That's another point; some of the songs on here are in their edited/remixed version. I think …
