It is stunning how ambitious Madonna sometimes gets... But no matter what you might think of her, you don't even have to like her for all she's worth, Madonna always delivers an album with something more than just provocation skills we know her about. 'Ray of Light' continues a successful run of alternatively-flavoured scores up to 1998 ('Erotica', 'Bedtime Stories',...). As her absolute creative peak ever after, 'Ray of Light' sometimes goes pathetic for wailing over her recent religious beliefs but it is still enjoyable and what makes Madonna as always as appealing, hugely danceable effort. 8.9
