Of all the albums Madonna has released over the years, Ray of Light is my personal favorite Madonna album. I liked her music in the '80s but I was more of a Cyndi Lauper fan. It was not until Ray of Light when I became more interested in Madonna's music (for awhile). A lot of the credit goes goes to producer William Orbit. His production on the album is brilliant. The music is very moody and often mellow which melds well with Madonna's introspective, reflective lyrics.
