Like A Prayer (1989)

Hailed as Madonna's most mature album at the time, Like A Prayer is distinctly confessional, largely danceable, and it's final track, "Act of Contrition" adds a little "Revolution Number 9" flavor into the mix.

Hard Candy (2008)

Madonna's most recent studio effort finds the singer no less the dance floor queen than she was 20 years ago, with college favorite "4 Minutes" among the standout tracks.

Like A Virgin (1984)

Madonna's breakthrough album, with the all-to-familiar "Material Girl" and title track, Like A Virgin won't win many critical hearts, but this is where the Madonna craze truly began.
