Virgin Voices: A Tribute to Madonna, Volume One

type
  • Music

There’s nothing overtly mysterious about Madonna — her music is fairly heart-on-sleeve apparent. Still, over half the artists on this cover record don’t seem to get her at all. Techno-fluffsters Berlin pad through ”Live to Tell” like a milk-licking kitten, and Annabella Lwin yips whipped-puppyish over ”Like a Virgin.” Only when Loleatta Holloway and KMFDM pounce like panthers on their respective tracks (”Like a Prayer,” ”Material Girl”) is the disc worthy of its subject.
