Madonna

What was considered Madonna’s “very best” vocally? It’s the Ray of Light era, isn’t it? Though I think her most iconic vocals (by that, I mean, this is the style of singing people probably associate with her) would be from True Blue. I always see people who actually lived through that era have a lot of love for Cherish.
 
I can't stop thinking about how Madame X is one of her BEST albums and how much it represents the vibe in which she has lived her life over the last decade more then....most any of her work? I can't get enough of it. Medellin is one of her sexiest songs ever.

Seeing her at the VMAs, serve after serve on instagram (editorial level), the Paramount premiere, seeing her happy and fulfilled with her boo....its all so great. Love MY mommy.

Ray of Light across the board.

I think Live to Tell, Rain, I'll Remember, Playground, I Want You and You'll See - Madonna displayed her vocals. I love her lower register (if that's the correct term)
 
Ray of Light, definitely. And even though they're way down on my list of favorite M albums, her voice really shined in two very different ways on I'm Breathless and American Life. Such fearless and brassy belting in the first, such subdued beauty in the latter (Nothing Fails, Intervention...).
 
Ray of Light or, like, the Evita Soundtrack if that counts - I’d say the latter was arguably the most technically impressive since Ray of Light was a lot more “processed”.

In terms of live vocals though, I’d say 2003-2005 were probably her best. American Life promo era especially.

Ray of Light for album vocals, she sounded pretty rough promoting it live in 1998/1999. For live vocals I’d say the Re-Invention Tour.
 
I wish Madame X clicked for me, is there a roadmap to understanding it for those of us left behind by music too ahead of its time for certain people?
