Like A Virgin is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, originally released in November 1984 by Sire Records.

Madonna had hits with her first album, even reaching the Top Ten twice, but she didn't become a superstar, until Like A Virgin. She saw the opening for this kind of explosion and seized it, bringing in former Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers in as a producer, to help her expand her sound, and then carefully constructed her image as an ironic, ferociously sexy Boy Toy; the cover, capturing her as a buxom bride with a Boy Toy belt buckle on the front, and dressing after a night of passion, was as key to her reinvention as the music itself.

There's no discounting the best songs on the record, the moments when her grand concepts are married to music that transcends the mere classification of dance-pop. These, of course, are "Material Girl" and "Like A Virgin", the two songs that made her an icon, and the two songs that remain definitive statements.

While the other singles, "Angel" and "Dress You Up", are excellent standard-issue dance-pop, and there are other moments that work extremely well, the two main singles tend to overshadow the rest of the record.

Like A Virgin was a little more calculated than the debut, but that’s part of Madonna’s essence and fun. This is the album that justifiably made her a star.

Check out the tracks: “Like A Virgin”; “Material Girl”; “Angel”; “Into The Groove” and “Dress You Up”. 

This Limited Edition LP reissue with printed inner sleeve is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
