As close to art as pop music gets

Like a Prayer marks the moment where critics started referring to Madonna as an artist, rather than just a pop singer. Musically, it's varied, unexpected and far from instantly accessible; lyrically, it’s moving, intelligent and candid. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine named it the 237th greatest album of all time. Apart from that the album was also featured in the “Women Who Rock” list made in 2012, at number 18. Like a Prayer is also featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. In 2006, Q magazine placed the album at number 14 in its list of “40 Best Albums of the ‘80s”. In 2005, a poll of half million people on British television network Channel 4 placed Like a Prayer at number eight on list of “The 100 Greatest Albums in Music History”. In 2012, Slant Magazine listed the album at number 20 on its list of “Best Albums of the 1980s.

Happy 25th, Like a Prayer
