Celebration [2-Disc]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Madonna's run at the top of the charts lasted so long, longer than almost any other star, it's almost impossible to squeeze all the hits onto one collection. And so it is that Celebration, a double-disc, 36-track set that also has a companion single-disc condensation, misses a few songs, hits as gorgeous as "Rain" and as goofily camp as "Hanky Panky," but truth be told, they're not greatly missed on this parade of pop genius that's hampered only slightly by its non-chronological order. Out of order, it does emphasize Madonna's consistency, and the bigger problem with the collection is that it mixes up album mixes, single edits, Q-Sound mixes pulled from The ...

Out of order, it does emphasize Madonna's consistency, and the bigger problem with the collection is that it mixes up album mixes, single edits, Q-Sound mixes pulled from The Immaculate Collection, and a couple of stray odd edits and mixes. This is a mess, but not quite enough to dilute what is one of the greatest bodies of work in modern pop -- even in this mixed-up confusion, these singles are a joy to hear.
Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
Superfans may well die happy with this much concentrated Madge-estry: 36 tracks covering nearly every phase of her ? 25-year career. It all holds up surprisingly well. [B]
Daily Telegraph
This compilation is heavily weighted to her glory days – everything on The Immaculate Collection of 1990 is also here except, weirdly, "Rescue Me." But the selection from the rest of her career reveals just how consistently she has delivered the goods, with tracks such as "Music," "Ray of Light," "Frozen and Don’t Tell Me."

    Madonna Again: Dance On!

    I received this CD as a gift and looked it over and said to myself "it's just songs I already have on other CDs." However, when I played the discs (2 for a total of 36 songs) I enjoyed it tremendously! The mixes are fun and danceable, very much so! I didn't know the song, the title track, "Celebration" and the song made my day! You will have fun with this record!
