The album was further promoted on her fourth concert tour , the Girlie Show World Tour , which visited Israel and Turkey, Latin America and Australia for the first time in The tour required costumes for the cast, and a hour set up time for the stage.
However, the rallies were unsuccessful as the show went on as scheduled. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic described the album as "ambitious" and noted that Erotica contains some of Madonna's best and most accomplished music.
It accepts those charges and answers with a brilliant record to prove them". Considine of The Baltimore Sun stated that the most surprising thing on the songs is that they find Madonna singing about love, not about sex. However, the substance of Erotica resides in a range of straight-talking, almost intimate songs based, not on an idea about sex, but on experience of relationships.
He also noted that " Erotica was too sophisticated for a mainstream besotted with The Bodyguard and a college-radio claque eager to praise R. She's in control, all understated presence and impersonal personality except when she's flashing some pink.
I love the rap where the boast turns out to be a lie. In the United States, Erotica debuted at number two on the Billboard on November 11, , with first week sales of , copies. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame considered Erotica as one of the most revolutionary albums of all time, declaring that " Madonna made it clear that shame and sexuality are mutually exclusive In the end, Erotica embraced and espoused pleasure, and kept Madonna at the forefront of pop's sexual revolution.
Randy Taraborrelli documented at the time of Erotica ' s release, "much of society seemed to reexamining its sexuality. Gay rights issues were at the forefront of social discussions globally, as was an ever-increasing awareness of AIDS. Madonna took what was marginalized at the worst of the AIDS epidemic , placed it in an emancipated context, and shoved it into the mainstream for all to see and hear.
Erotica remains the most rampantly misrepresented Madonna album with the biggest backlash of her career. However, he quipped that the album should be considered on its own merits, not only as one linked to the other two adult-oriented projects, because it has true value. It just got lost in all that. I think there's some brilliant songs on it and people didn't give it a chance.
He further asserted that "what she lost in royalty payments, however, Madonna more than made up for in iconic status and cultural influence. Walters asserted that Erotica "set the blueprint for modern pop Without Madonna, modern pop as we know it would be unimaginable. Notes . Credits adapted from the album's liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. We were listening in my home studio to one of the first songs and I turned to her and said 'It's great, but it's no ' Vogue '.
She told me that not every song could be 'Vogue' — not every cut could emerge as the top-selling record of all time. She was right, but I pressed my case anyway: "I guess I'm always trying to out-top myself, the next thing should be bigger than the last. She said, "Shep, no matter how fierce something is, you can't ever do the same thing twice. This is not Madonna at her creative zenith. This is Madonna at her most important, at her most relevant.
No one else in the mainstream at that time dared to talk about sex, love, and death with such frankness and fearlessness. Madonna Shep Pettibone Anthony Shimkin. John Davenport Eddie Cooley.

She came in, started writing, she's like, "What do you think about this direction and these lyrics? I'm the only one that got the feet up so at first I didn't think she saw it, and she goes, "Dre, stop being a bitch, it's just a rat. Shimkin: She really holds fast to a general rule, which is that she's in charge of lyrics and melody, and you're in charge of music. While she has her say in the music end, it's more about the arrangement and how it works with her vocal.
She'll still be open to ideas you have about a vocal. One is her dominion, the other is yours, and they don't meet that often, but it's not unheard of to be able to comment either way. Donna De Lory: She would completely just hear it in her head. Especially when we're doing vocals. Sometimes [backup singer] Niki [Haris] and I would be like, "How 'bout this? How 'bout that? She was open to other ideas, but I really respected that. Wimbish: [My first day in the studio], she rolls up and she's got a box with these Playboy magazines from like the '60s.
She comes in, Dre sees her and she's chilling, Dre's like, "Yo what's up Mo how you doing? Dre says, "What do you got here in this box. She's Madonna, she's got that alpha female vibe -- and no disrespect. I'm like "yo, let me see that. Dre's looking at the centerfold, Madonna's doing her Madonna thing, saying, "no, no," and I'm like, "I'm not doing anything until I see some titties and ass.
Shimkin: I was 21, 22 years old at the time. While I'd worked on a lot of major artists' records and spoken to some of them, it can be intimidating at first.
When we worked on "Vogue" I didn't speak to her that much, but when we started working in [Shep's] house [on Erotica ] and you're there every day, you realize somebody is just who they are. One time, she was asking me if I was done on the computer. She asked me a few minutes later and I was like "not yet," and I started getting more nervous. The next time she asked me, I lost it and I thought it was the end of my career, I said, "I'm not done yet, make some fucking popcorn and I'll let you know when I'm ready.
It became much easier as time went on. I think she enjoys having people around her who allow themselves to be themselves. She's really no different than what she puts out there to the public in a movie like Truth or Dare.
There's not a persona and she doesn't hide who she is. But unlike many of the other tracks on Erotica , "Erotica" underwent numerous radical changes during the album sessions. Shep Pettibone: "Erotica" was four different songs throughout the process.
She loved the groove. She would sing it one way, background vocals harmonies and all, then decide to erase everything and start over again. Every version was very good.
